Emperor Davros and Destroyed Imperial Dalek
Bringing back that special feeling that used to come with every Dalek story, the 1988 serial Remembrance of the Daleks combined intelligent, thought-provoking ideas with classic revisionist storytelling to make it one of the high points of the Seventh Doctor’s reign.
Now joining the previous Remembrance of the Daleks set from the serial comes the Forbidden Planet exclusive Emperor Davros and Destroyed Imperial Dalek Collectors Set.
Admittedly the white Dalek bases are lacking a little detail in the paint work and the ‘destroyed’ section is literally just a Dalek minus the top section with a far too clean damaged paint job (Character Options have had issues with some of their Dalek sets – the previous Remembrance set had 70’s era dimensions rather than the 80’s redesign.)
Also why is it a collectors set rather than just an Emperor Davros figure by itself? Do we really need another Imperial Dalek figure? Unless you’re planning to make a stop-motion remake of the serial and don’t really want to blow up your Emperor figure – I can’t see that being a big market.
Still if you have to own Davros and his obliterated companion then the Doctor Who Action Figure Collectors Set: Remembrance of the Daleks: Emperor Davros and Destroyed Imperial Dalek is available to pre-order for £29.99 and will be seen ascending Forbidden Planet‘s staircase on the 9th March.
