Genuine Tennant Era Replica Dalek For Sale

Here’s a chance to get your hands on a genuine BBC licenced David Tennant era gold replica Dalek replica – with a TARDIS prop replica thrown in for free!

Seller heatedcathode is selling the professionally built Dalek – which was commissioned for his son, to stand on display at a Boy Scout’s Centenary Camp in Europe and was recently the star of Mysticon, Virginia – is being sold on to a new Time Lord after his son no longer wanted the Dalek (no, really).

The Dalek was constructed by Toby Chamberlain of This Planet Earth Ltd – the only company licenced by the BBC to create stunningly rendered, full sized replicas of Skaros best. For anyone who picked up the Day of the Daleks: Special Edition DVD release will be familiar with Toby’s work as he built and operated one of Daleks used in the filming that helped re-create and re-master the original story.

Standing at 5’ 6’’ tall, the gold Dalek is 3’ 6’’ wide and 3’ 6’’ front to back, speaks 6 key phrases and is controlled by a wireless control box (although it isn’t fully motorised – perhaps a challenge for its eventual owner?)

Now you can’t have a Dalek without the Doctor but as you can’t really sell actual humans on eBay you’ll have to make do with this TARDIS prop replica. The prop was originally part of a full TARDIS which has since been broken down. It’s authentically painted in a familiar hue of blue with professionally created signs and an illuminated light box.

Naturally, such a fantastically detailed prop is quite expensive ($15,000.00 which doesn’t include the cost of shipping such a delicate item) but hopefully it’ll find the right fan and continue to impress and terrify a whole new set of fans.

About the Author

Everyone has a favourite Doctor and mine - just for his honesty, his fairness and his ability to not notice the Master's awful, awful disguises/anagrams (Sir Gilles Estram!?!) - has to be the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. The stories didn’t serve him as well as his acting served those stories.

    A genuine replica? How does that work?


    • It’s a fair point. A replica faithfully based on a design, I suspect.

  2. Bryan Simcott says:

    8,000.00 GBP = 12,290.67 USD

    A new series Dalek and Tardis from This planet earth is currently around £8,000 inc postage while (at todays rate) this offer is $12,290.67p for both items

    whereas the broken up tardis thats fragile and the Dalek is $15.000
    so why not just go and get a new one made from the offical company. For less (even taking into account the USA i`m sure you could get anew one of each that didnt cost £15k + postage

      It’s 12000 dollars for everything and not 15000 pounds. He also is accepting offers.

    I cam across this post rather late in the day, but hey thought I’d leave this comment for others who come to find it. I am the seller of this Dalek and TARDIS. Talking of the Dalek it’s an officially licensed replica. In other words the BBC license (for a fee I assume) to build exact replicas of the show Daleks, and in fact the molds were taken from the show Daleks. Toby who built this Dalek has also built for the BBC Day of the Daleks special edition, and he has appeared in the show as a Dalek operator. This is called provenance, and adds value :)

    Talking of provenance, since the ad first went live Peter Davison has visited my house (yes really!) and signed both the Dalek and TARDIS, as well as some other mementos of his time as the Doctor. I have a number of photos and videos of when he came to see me, and these will soon be added to the eBay listing. The price will also change to reflect the increased value!

    He visited 22nd Feb 2013.

    So here you have the chance to own a Dalek of some significant value and desirability, or you can simply order one to be made. There is no guarantee it will be made by Toby, and of course it won’t be signed by the 5th Doctor, or photographed with him :)

    This Planet Earth do some amazing stuff, and you should buy from them as well! The Weeping and Screaming Angels they create are phenomenal! I also know from speaking to Toby this week (end of Feb 2013) he just made a Screaming Angel for a certain famous show producer that shares a similar last name to Peter Davison’s ‘real’ name. One for the Whovians to quickly work out!

    The TARDIS took 4 months to build, and cost about $2000 or so. Do not be fooled by how simple it looks! It is a complex and time consuming thing to build and there are no offcial plans or measurements out there! Peter signed the TARDIS “This Belongs to the Doctor, Peter Davison 2013″!! Now it is only the doors and the light box, but the rest of the parts exist if someone wants to fully rebuild it!

    In the meantime the Dalek has made dozens of children (young and old!) very happy as word has spread about its existence. There are not many Daleks in the USA, and certainly few with this provenance! I hope this eventually goes to a great home, and continues to be a source of immense enjoyment to all the Who fans across the States!
