Doctor Who Dalek Vehicle Mega Playset (Argos)

This item was exclusive to Argos

The Dalek’s are the most feared creatures in existence; conquerors of countless worlds and annihilators of alien civilisations.

argos-mega-set

This Dalek mega set is a construction playset which includes the Dalek spaceship, a Dalek skimmer set, just like the ones that are released from the launch bays when they are invading, and nine mini Dalek figures.

On the ever popular TV show Doctor Who, the Daleks saucer-shaped ships are fast, powerful and heavily armed.

The Dalek spaceship features moveable parts, laser cannons and a transparent dome.

Colours and styles may vary. For ages 6 years and over.

    Booboo, so you think character have dropped the monster set that was previewed earlier this year with the Sontaran and Jadoon without their helmets?

      Out of the 3 sets that were to be available – I still think we will see the Judoon/Sontaran Helmetless figures as they haven’t been released before – All the other figures from those 3 sets have already been released…

    when will the character building set of the 11th doctors second tardis be out and what figures do you think will come with the set.

      i think it will just come with the ddoctor in his newest outfit (possibly exlusive to the set) and clara because the interior may be smaller as it is smaller in the show, therefore cheaper.

      Not sure when coming out though, probbably in november ready for the 50th movie (23/11/13)

    Is the black Dalek exclusive to this deal….I’ve not seen a black Dalek in anything else…to be honest I’ve not see a 9 Dalek figure set either.

      July 28th, 2013 - 9:49pm

      the black dalek is only in this set at the moment but that could change

      all the Daleks are loose in packets so it not set as such, they were bring out the paradigm as a carded set but that seems to have been droped

      I’m relieved to say that the Black Dalek was in there πŸ™‚ Despite the sticker on the box advising 7 Daleks, the marketing info is correct – there are indeed 9 daleks. The five paradigm daleks, 3 Gold Daleks and 1 Black Dalek (I assume the 2 gold daleks are from the Skimmer Set and the gold and black daleks are from the spaceship set). You can now pick up the spaceship set for about Β£12 and the skimmer set for about Β£6…but this comes with a set of paradigm daleks worth at least Β£10 and the much sought after black dalek making this a good buy.

      July 28th, 2013 - 8:46pm

      Thanks. So would anyone suggest getting this, it’s quite cheap but I have the sets, but then again I will get more dalek (and you can never have too many daleks)? Also is the black dalek gaurenteed or will a set maybe not have it?

    • Radburn

      July 28th, 2013 - 8:59pm

      Well I have bought it & 4 others off this site & we all got the Black Dalek. I already had both sets but bought it again for the Black Dalek. Considering the Dalek Saucer on it’s own is still being sold in some places for Β£29.99 – This is a bargain!

    • booboo

      July 28th, 2013 - 9:03pm

      yes i got the set as well and The Black dalek is there

      you get a awful lot for Β£29.99 here

    • Kroton

      July 28th, 2013 - 9:03pm

      Thank you, I think I’ll go to my local argos without reserving it and see if they have it, if they do I’ll get it if not I won’t (obviously) so that way I don’t have to decide if I should get it or not. πŸ™‚

      got mine yesterday. It had all the Daleks and was really good. When all the things are made the ship and skimmer look small compared to the box there in, but still awsome. Hoping to get another one soon.

      It does say on it that 9 Daleks were included – were you expecting more?

      How is the set packaged? Are the Daleks just loose in a bag or are they boxed?

    • LegoAvon

      June 14th, 2013 - 12:57pm

      its looks like its the big flying disc set box with a sticker, and loose bag.

      i was thinking it would be the 2 gold from the disc set + plus the 9 daleks, oh well

      still feel the price is a bit high for what you bet in the box.

    • LegoAvon

      June 14th, 2013 - 1:26pm

      I would buy another one or two if it came down in price to about Β£40 or less.

      Does it actually have Sec in or is it random?

    • Radburn

      July 28th, 2013 - 8:35pm

      It seem’s to be an Argos Exclusive & Dalek Sec is in the box set. The breakdown is as above in LegoAvon’s comment. Be aware though that you get the Dalek Saucer with an individual Bronze/Red Dalek as per the original release. The Dalek Skimmer is in there but with no figures. The other figures pack has the 5-Colour Dalek Paradigm plus Dalek Sec & another Bronze – Making a total of 9 Dalek micro-figures…

  • Pull to Open

    May 17th, 2013 - 12:12pm

    Just a guess but I think it will turn out like this;
    A Dalek Saucer set,
    A Dalek Skiff set,
    A Dalek 5 pack (White, Yellow, Red, Blue & Orange) as shown at Toy Fair in the new style blister hanger (similar to that used for Scooby Doo),
    A Dalek 4 pack (Sec and 3 gold) using the standard box.

    The whole ensemble repackaged in a nondescript white box with an Argos catalogue number on it.
    I can’t see the new items being exclusive but they may be difficult to track down individually.

      I really want this set anyway. Unless Dalek Secs not in it, then i’m going to forget about buying the whole thing. 😐 Yep i’m just buying the double sets just for 1 Dalek. But i bought neither sets so i might actually get it if Dalek Sec isn’t there.

      Maybe there’ll be a new Argos exclusive Dalek multi pack as a variant on the Toy Fair one but with Sec and Bronzes (Possibly with others such as Ironside/Supreme/Dalek Prime Minister) instead of paradigm ones and that comes with the set.

      The Argos Ireland site – http://www.argos.ie/static/Product/partNumber/9148073/Trail/searchtext%3EDALEK.htm – lists the current price as valid up to July 26th. Given what booboo says about the price being halved when it comes into stock, and that the new catalogue would be coming out the following day, I’d say it would be a safe bet for the Autumn/Winter catalogue πŸ™‚
