B&M 2021 History of the Daleks #5 Figure Set

Character Options is delighted to announce its first new wave of Doctor Who action figure sets for 2021 with four new lines scheduled to arrive in B and M stores across the country in Mid-August.

This exciting launch will introduce two more action figure trios plus two additional special collectors’ packs for Dalek Fans. Each and every set of this detailed series will include highly detailed 5.5 inch scale figures featuring multiple points of articulation and come presented in the ‘heritage’ Doctor Who packaging with specially created insert artwork.

The Doctor Who Daleks’ Collector Sets have their very own fan base and to mix things up a little the next two sets are slightly out of order to give a more varied on shelf presence. So first up is Set #5 The Power of the Daleks Set, comprising of two highly detailed Daleks – The Silver Drone Dalek and Drone with Mutant Scoop Dalek.

    do you think they’ll ever release a 5inch scale emperor figure?

      Yes the emperor Daleks are always overlooked. Maybe once the current history series has milled out all the variants we’ll get the more obscure Daleks later….

      Online exclusive maybe?

    Does anyone actually have a date of the release. By the time they’re in shops I miss them. Tried phoning by no response.

      only thing that’s been said it mid August, they are never in all shops on the same date anyway to be honest, i will, i hope know when they arrive for distribution

      This site and Booboo has been priceless in the past in pointing to locations of stock otherwise I’d have had problems getting any of the sets to date.

      Stores often won’t know, it will be in a daily delivery. Or to be precise the person you speak to probably won’t know.

      You know the YouTubers that have the sets, did they get them through I think it is called evolution or or something?

      dont think so, or at least they are chosen now, you can’t ask for samples anymore.

    • Prototype dalek

      Normally samples are given out after the embargo date mainly I think now due to the continuous leaks all the time, some know Al (hence how Ian O’Brien/timelord gets them) or Al knows them so I think he arranges something for them. The set’s this time weren’t to do with the PR company, either they didn’t get sample sets to send out or aren’t doing them

    Was there anymore Dalek variants from this story or are these the only 2?

    • John

      August 3rd, 2021 - 3:47pm

      There was the variant with no gun

      Thanks. I like these choices then. What about Evil, how many variants are there? I worry we won’t get enough variants in a 2 pack.

      Dalek, Guard, Emperor, 3 types of lettered Daleks. With the reason for it being a 60’s and 70’s set at once it seems like we won’t get the emperor.

      Thanks. I’d rather get the most distinctive choices then, not another drone like Power. Is the black domed head one from this? If so that’s good. The Emperor would be good but unlikely and if they were to do it I think online exclusive would be better for them.

    • Philip Shaw

      It’s unlikely they will do the Emporer due to it being a static thing, They make fully poseable figures and Dakels that have moving parts.

    I’d like a drone to go with my almost identical but slatless First Doctor Dalek, the other one always makes me think he’s frying chips! Mmmmm Chips!

    The mutant from the new series will make a good accessory to go with the scoop dalek

    I wonder if we will get the other arm accessories one day?

    Hey, Booboo. Thanks for posting this. Do you know if, the distribution will be a lot better this time round for this summer’s B&M wave? Since, the southern distribution hub has opened a few months ago?

    • booboo

      August 2nd, 2021 - 6:17pm

      should be

    I’m glad CO went the extra bit and molded a new scoop arm. I would have thought, to save money, they’d have done a Dalek with gun and one without, as seen in the story. A Dalek without gun was previously released with the 4th Doctor And Dalek Set from a few years ago, so I thought CO would just go that variant route. It was simplest, saves money, and would keep in theme with the Daleks seen in Power.

    Kudos to CO!

    You need to re name it its history of the daleks set 6

    • Tom

      August 2nd, 2021 - 3:20pm

      Sets 6 &8 will be released in a few months!

    • TimelordTim

      August 2nd, 2021 - 3:21pm

      They’ve split it, sets 5+7 are released in this wave. Sets 6+8 are in the next wave later this year. Done to avoid all similar looking Daleks on the shelf at the same time.

    If only they’d done the grey the whole way round the mid section rather than just the front

      August 2nd, 2021 - 3:42pm

      Wouldn’t it be “MUSHY PEAS”? (Given the colour of the Kaled Mutant).

    • the ergon

      August 2nd, 2021 - 11:19pm

      Mushy mutant. No thanks
