Genesis of the Daleks Set

Genesis of the Daleks Collector Set

The Time Lords send the Doctor and his companions to the planet Skaro at a point early in its history to stop the development of the Daleks so that they become less of a threat to the Universe. However, Skaro is currently in the grip of a long war of attrition between the Kaleds and the Thals. The Kaleds’ chief scientist, Davros, deformed and crippled by radiation, has been experimenting to discover the final form into which his race will mutate. He has devised a protective travel machine in which they can continue to survive. This is instantly recognised by the Doctor as a Dalek.

Escaping from the bunker where Davros and his Elite are based, the Doctor and Harry persuade the Kaled leaders to put the Dalek experiments on hold. Davros retaliates by conspiring with the Thals to destroy his own people with a rocket. He then activates his Daleks and orders them to wipe out the Thals. Once this is complete the Daleks seize control, killing the remainder of the Elite and ultimately Davros himself. Thal survivors detonate explosives at the entrance to the bunker, sealing the Daleks inside, but for how long?

In this fantastic set from Underground Toys we present Davros and 2 ‘Genesis’ variant Daleks along with the Fourth Doctor in his dufflecoat.

Available to ship in mid-April.

This set is available to pre-order from forbiddenplanet.com or forbiddenplanet.co.uk

      This is also nice:

      it seem like nothing is getting officially announced anymore, that’s the last 4 set now that have either turned up on ebay or in the USA first

    i think all figure sets released should have:
    – At least 1 companion form that story
    – a villan from that story (or 2 if necessary)
    – possibly a doctor (we dont need shelves and boxes of the same figure)

    why are they wasting their time re-releasing daleks, davros and the doctor? they should have just done “The Fourth Doctor Dalek Set” with:
    – Davros (he practically looks the same in destiny and genesis)
    – Destiny Doctor (with scarf done PROPERLY)
    – Genesis Dalek
    – Destiny Dalek
    but no its just money first customers later with some companies πŸ™„

    why are there so many 4th Doctor variations compared to other Doctors?

    Not as many as Tennant πŸ˜‰

      If i were in production and needed to keep costs down it would make scene to produce all these sets at the same time as they use the same/similar moulds etc, if you produce one davros set now, then change the production line for something completely different and then change it back for the next set its bound to cost more, i suspect this is why we are getting these sets all at once.

    Again, like the Destiny set, one Dalek was needed, companion figures of Sarah Jane or Harry would have made it worth while, personally. I feel Character/Underground Toys have gone over the top with continuousness releases of classic Daleks, practically every new classic exclusive set contains Daleks…and why are there so many 4th Doctor variations compared to other Doctors? Daleks aren’t the only thing in the Classic era of Doctor Who.

    The figure that I’m excited about is this new mould of Davros (ironically, for the latest release, the oldest and original version in the series). I have a Genesis dalek and a 4th Doctor. I really with they’d done a Sarah Jane Smith, Harry or Nyder! Or at least that failed dalek experiment, clam creature! I love the looks of this set but it takes such a long time for new figures to come out I wish it was sometimes something different than yet another dalek set (much as I love daleks).

    the biggest waste of time and money i have ever seen. Most of the daleks from the previous 2 fp sets are the same. Just a cheap repaint of tom baker and a few differences to a davros. FP are running out of ideas and fast. Anyone who wants to buy this re paint is obviously just being brainwashed. I thought two sets were enough, but another two is just outrages!http://merchandise.thedoctorwhosite.co.uk/wp-includes/images/smilies/icon_mad.gif

    i like this set but i really dislike tom’s tie and jumper thing. it’s got the pattern of his waist coat from seasons 13 – 15 but its made in the shape of theseason 12 jumper!!!! madness.
    but davros is fab and those daleks are just.. so… dalek-y?? its a good set.

    I’m not paying Β£35 + postage for 2 more genisis daleks. A 4th doctor with a diffrent head with another davros (davros would be worth concidering but Β£35)

    Money dosn’t grow on trees you know

      To be fair the genesis Daleks from Dalek set one have become quite rare with many collectors not getting them first time round so this will be welcome news to them.

      -Yeah, infact that’s practicly the FIRST reason I wanted to go for this set. And The Tom Baker has all the essentials for a figure of that character; the tie and coat, not to mention iconic hair and scarf. I really don’t think the odd waistcoat is that big a deal, its still pretty good a figure. 😐

      You see where Im getting at>?
