Cloned Daleks for Christmas?
Plenty of new figures and combo sets have been released by Character during 2011, and while we were first a little disappointed by the Dalek similarities of some of these sets, they make great gifts in the run up to Christmas!
After all, amazing as it may seem to us, Doctor Who is finding new fans every day of the year. Some of the emails and Tweets we receive from new fans are remarkably heart-warming, inducing nostalgic memories of Whovian discovery that we won’t go into here, so despite the similarities in the Remembrance of the Daleks and Resurrection of the Daleks sets with other Dalek adventure sets such as Destiny of the Daleks and Genesis of the Daleks, they all make great starter kits.
This Dalek themed double this is certainly worth a look The first set is based on 1988′s Remembrance of the Daleks and features four of the metal meanies. For your hard-earned cash you’ll get a Renegade Dalek, a Supreme Dalek, a white Imperial Dalek and a Special Weapons Dalek all in one tidy box and will cost you £34.99 from Forbidden Planet.
To mark the 2011 DVD re-release of the adventure, there’s also a Resurrection of the Daleks set for you to consider as well. This features the Fifth Doctor, Davros, a grey Dalek and a slightly different black Supreme Dalek. This set is also £34.99
We know that certain collectors may want to have all the sets and may have the expendable cash to purchase each individual one and that’s great. Others (me really) may not have £34.99 to spend each time on a variation of a theme, so remember to consider your purchase before buying as there may be similarities in the box sets that you might not want!
On the other hand, you can look at the level of details and skill that has gone into creating these sets and may just decide to buy them all anyway!
Remember that Forbidden Planet has a fantastic selection of Dalek toys, games and attire in its massive catalogue!
