Doctor Who 12″ Remote “Asylum” Dalek (Toys r Us)

Doctor Who 12″ Remote “Asylum” Dalek (Toys r Us)

When the Doctor, Amy and Rory are captured and brought before the Parliament of the Daleks, they naturally fear for their lives. Expecting to be exterminated, they are surprised to be asked to save the Daleks.

Features…

  • 8 Dalek Phrases
  • Flashing lights and speech
  • Motorised Dalek movement
  • Poseable gun and arm
  • Illuminated eye
  • Handset with dual stick movement control

Humankind has somehow managed to enter the Dalek Asylum – a planet where insane and unruly Daleks are dumped. A spaceship has crash landed rupturing a hole in the planet’s defence shield. If humans can get in, then Daleks can get out!

Plus there’s at least one survivor; Oswin Oswald has sent out a distress signal. Facing his most dangerous enemy, the Doctor and the Ponds must enter the Asylum, rescue Oswin and stop the breach before any insane Daleks can escape into the universe. However, the Doctor discovers a heartbreaking,truth and realises not everyone can be saved…


Exterminate!…

      I thought the same but if you collect Daleks you have to have this one. Do agree with other postings that it could have been better.

    this looks more brown than bronze, which is accurate to the daleks in the parliament/asylum!

      I would say more an old bronze. I am looking at it now and it does look brown at some angles

    Do we know if this is a re-shape? I have the 12 inch RC original bronze Dalek from 2005 and Dalek Sec and their top sections are too small and the skirts stupidly wide…

      Just got this. It is the same as the 2005 one just darker bronze and weatherd.

      Just got mine – local Toys-R-Us who didn’t know they were getting it! There are three more on the shelves and one of the 50th Union Jack….
      It’s exactly the same shape as the 2005 original, but more like the Emperor’s Guard or Assault versions in colour.
      The hemishpheres are a lighter in colour than any of the others, and the main body/head shade is more of a chocolate than the dark bronze of the two variants. It also has a unique “name” stamp under the eye stalk.

      September 6th, 2013 - 3:20pm

      The ‘weathering’ is disappointing, and appears to have been done too quickly by simply wiping off the wet chocolate top coat with a rag to reveal the original bronze beneath. It has not been done to a high level of competence on mine. It was, however, the best paint job out of the ones they had, so maybe they’re all done in a rush….

      Have you tried the voice? If so, what do you think? I bought the Union Jack dalek, and thought the voice and phrases were underwhelming.

    • Gargan7

      September 20th, 2013 - 11:05am

      Not tried the sounds on either this or 50th anniversary edition, as I only display them and don’t want to risk battery ‘leakage’.

    I have an original large RC Dalek and a large RC Dakek Sec. All I need are spare parts form Character-Online.

    It looks good, but would be better with chains and pieces ripped off it. Then a 5″ version to have gone with the Eleventh Doctor instead of that Strategist would’ve been nice.

    3 12in Daleks in as many weeks; amazing when 2 we did not know about and would not if it were not for Booboo.

    I went to TRU Portsmouth for a change last week and staggered that the wave 2 double packs were tucked away on the bottom shelf.

    They do not do bags any more, so if it is raining, take your own bin liner or large bag.

    Firstly the shape of the skit on those remote control Dalek’s are all wrong (too wide) and secondly the Asylum Dalek’s had bombs missing and red stickers, one had its sucker torn away in some past battle (EGGGGGGGGGS Dalek) this is a shame, could have been a brilliant product.

      Have you actually checked the Oswin dalek in the episode?

      No damage to it apart from dirt.

    September 6th, 2013 - 2:30am

    I love the colouration of this but I agree with booboo’s advice…, it’s very probably worth hanging on as it will most likely come down in price. I’ll definitely pick one up at some point though!

    Now can they bring back the 18 inch voice command Daleks. Those were pretty great Daleks. This looks good, however they could put more green and brown on it.

    I’ve almost given up with York TRU now. So slow to get the new stuff in, I doubt this will appear anytime soon, if ever. And the B&M listed for Clifton Moor doesn’t seem to even exist! (unless some kind York person can advise otherwise), so no RC Supreme either.

      its a much darker bronze with added weathered effect, made to look old and worn

    • WouldYouLikeAJellyBaby

      September 5th, 2013 - 10:10pm

      Do you think it’s worth the money as the only 12″ Dalek I have is Dalek Sec and that’s broken.

    • booboo

      September 5th, 2013 - 10:12pm

      its a bit more expensive than i would have thought, up to you but i would hang on a while (says he who just went out and bought it)
