I'd always fancied the remote control Dalek, but didn't exactly feel comfortable paying the full price of £30. I was delighted when I came across the nifty little gadget for a tiny £8 at a car boot sale! Taking it home, only hoping it was in full working operation, I crammed in the batteries and flicked the 'on switch'…
The Doctor has since then encountered the Daleks many a time throughout the television series', his latest 'greeting' with them ending with just one little Dalek escaping. Of course, it would not be Doctor Who without the infamous Daleks; they are sure to make a reappearance! When, though, is a different issue!
The appearance of the Dalek is very much like the ones we can see on our screens. All his markings and features are present, complete with a rotating head and moving 'plunger' arm!
In order for your remote control to operate, a single 9V battery is required. It's quite a large controller, which I found quite weird, considering the Dalek is suited for 5+ years! However, it's reasonably simple to use and not too heavy either!
I wouldn't pay the full price for this myself, but after having such fun with it, I'd certainly recommend that other fans purchase this! Although you obviously need to fork out a bit more for batteries, you'll have a fantastic time whizzing your very own Dalek around the house (terrifying pets I'm sure - my dog was a bit baffled by the creature himself!).This Dalek also comes in black, and if I am not mistaken, red now too. Though, I feel the gold one seems more traditional, and is a joy to play with! It also comes in a variety of heights too, including the smaller 5 inch version and the new 18 inch Daleks!
