Dalek Ship and Silent’s Time Machine Out Soon!
The Dalek ship will hit shelves on 10th July, and features moveable exterior and interior, laser cannons and a transparent dome. Two bronze RTD-era micro-figure Daleks are also included, as well as a detachable ‘skimmer car’ – essentially, it a flying platform from which Daleks can exterminate. Which is nice, don’t you think?
Sarcasm aside, it’s a pretty cool set, designed for the kids within us all. But it’s the grown-ups that have to fork out £29.99. Still, it’s bound to be sold in droves in preparation for the Dalek’s return to screens in Asylum of the Daleks.
The Silent’s Time Machine set includes:
“Control room with control panels, control interface chair with connector cables & two Silent micro-figures.”
The model, Forbidden Planet states, comes from The Impossible Astronaut, but it was first seen on Aickman Road, above Craig’s flat in The Lodger (2010) – and it’s somewhat reminiscent of the Eighth Doctor’s TARDIS. The mystery of their time machine has yet to be resolved; could it have appeared in Amy’s house, as fans are speculating after Matt Smith revealed that Amy and Rory’s exit ties in with The Eleventh Hour?
