Doctor Who B&M 2022 History of the Daleks Set 12

The five new Doctor Who classic lines will be available in November 2022 at B&M stores nationwide.

This action figure set includes:

  • Destiny Dalek Drone A
  • Destiny Dalek Drone C

These Dalek figures represent two used in this story. As part of the 17th season of Doctor Who, the BBC’s Visual Effects Department found a very battered collection of Daleks at their disposal. New and old prop parts were mixed freely.

Please note the official image is of the SAME Dalek, Please see box image Below for differences in the Black paint around the mid section, ears, base,gun arm ball joint and oval.

Official Image:

Of the props assembled, the lead Dalek was the only one to retain its dark grey ‘Genesis’ style finish, whereas the others were painted a battleship blue along with mismatched parts picked out in gloss black and silver, although all the Daleks were given new eyestalks.

Add to this, by now very ‘worn’ appearance, the props arguably look like the remnants of a Dalek army very much on the back foot in an intergalactic war!

A VERY rough mock-up of the differences between the 2 Daleks

Speaking of this wave of releases Al Dewar, Creative Director at Character Options, said: “This range has some real gems in it, including some not so easy to spot ones. The three figure sets are very cool and there’s at least one standout figure in each set, including a new Ninth Doctor with new components and an updated Rose V1. We also have a brand-new Angel variant as well as a physically new version of Yaz. Collectors will delight in looking for both variants of the Angel figure.

“With the Dalek sets – this time we have two absolute standout pieces with ‘Genesis of the Daleks’ and my personal favourite Dalek story ‘Destiny of the Daleks’. For me it has everything and I love the look of the battered war worn Daleks. Following that and much to my own delight, is a new First Doctor figure in the form of David Bradley’s Doctor paired with a very unique looking TARDIS based more on the TARDIS look in the BBC 2013 anniversary drama story which covered the creation of the TV series.

“Lastly to go hand in hand with the Dalek sets is a great special release featuring Davros and a very special Dalek … all I can say is fans will not want to miss out on that one!”

    Personally, I hope they will get to the modern daleks from 2005 onwards as I want to start army building.

      They will. Al confirmed that is the plan on a recent fan podcast.

    There’s still absolutely loads of these at Anglia Retail Park Ipswich. Wish I could post a pic. It’s impressive!

      Ask booboo the moderator, he’ll tell you the email addy to send to.

    They’ve got a large stock of these at Anglia Retail Park B&M in Ipswich. There were loads last week and there’s still loads today! Not sure when they arrived as I’m late to the party on this one. Wasn’t expecting a release so soon after Planet/Death Dalek sets so I didn’t check!

    For US buyers, WhoNA has very few in stock. As on now, there are 3 left, in non-mint packaging. There were 7 before I ordered mine, so 3 others were sold, in addition to mine, in the time I was placing my order.

    On sale in Lowestoft town centre branch this afternoon.

    Now confirmed as INSTORE ONLY on the B&M website.

    • booboo

      November 14th, 2022 - 11:45am

      That was supposedly always going to be the case for The Daleks, hopefully the other sets will be online

  • Daniel Simmonds

    November 9th, 2022 - 2:49am

    Now feature on the B&M website but not available to purchase online, in store only.

    • John

      November 9th, 2022 - 9:51am

      They all have said that then vanished so the consensus is they will come back on for purchase.

    • booboo

      November 9th, 2022 - 9:57am

      Unless something has changed the “list” going around presumably from the B&M system still has the Daleks as in-store only, all the others being available online.

    • booboo

      November 9th, 2022 - 9:52am

      taken off now, probably a test, although people seems to have missed the “in store only” part

    • Dwho

      November 9th, 2022 - 7:55pm

      I don’t understand how they can go online? If there’s 3500 of each how could they get many out to stores because I’m sure they would sell couple of thousand instantly online. Wouldn’t leave much stock for stores ? Would like to be optimistic but highly unlikely be sold online

    • Dwho

      November 9th, 2022 - 7:56pm

      Highly unlikely be sold online ? 3500 of each and will sell pretty quick online would leave no stock for in store? Like to be optimistic but highly unlikely thoughts?

    It would be nice to have these….oh wait I live in America so this will be another time I miss out….

      No bomber dalek? Shock.

  • prototype dalek

    October 26th, 2022 - 2:08pm

    Looking forward to getting this in hand and seeing the paint difference between this and the original.

  • Martino

    October 26th, 2022 - 11:55am

    Another nice looking set. Given that we’ve seen many sets with little ‘extra’s’ included, I am a tad surprised they didn’t include loose Dalek bomb accessories, that you could stick on the Dalek yourself.

  • Drwhofan12

    Where is drone b or is there going to be another set?

    • Toast

      October 26th, 2022 - 9:21am

      I’m guessing it might be in another Davros set

  • GalexTEM

    i cant wait to see these being rolled out for pre public release review or whatever its called.

  • pupbenny

    I think this is my favourite set this wave. Looks pretty good. Must admit the first image confused me a bit though, I wonder why they did that lol.

  • David Minter

    I do hope they release a 2nd Destiny History set with the Suicide Dalek or release it with Davros in another set. Otherwise, I think CO would have dropped the ball on this one. The Suicide Dalek is one of the harder to find Daleks and the only reason I have one is because I got it off of eBay when someone offered it separately years ago.

  • Doug Who

    October 25th, 2022 - 2:23pm

    I love the somewhat optimistic line in the release that “collectors will delight” in trying to find variants! More like collectors will end up shouting at poor innocent B&M staff because they haven’t arrived or shelves have been cleared by scalpers!

    Will definitely be getting the two Daleks and Davros set if I can find them! Really liking the Destiny set in particular. Is this the first in a series of Davros sets? I can’t remember if that was announced but if so, I suppose the ‘bomber’ Dalek will be in the next one.

  • Anonymous

    October 25th, 2022 - 1:02pm

    Seeing that these are Drones A and C, my guess is that drone B (maybe bomber dalek) will be released with Destiny Davros in the next wave?

    • TimelordTim

      October 25th, 2022 - 1:22pm

      Good point. Think I’ll wait and see what Drone B ends up being in that case.

    The box image shows they are actually different. One of the has no black around the mid section and half the bumper is grey, like the origional release in the 4pack

    • Erato

      October 25th, 2022 - 6:53pm

      Good spot. I looked at the season 17 publicity photos from 1979 with Tom and Lalla and the two Daleks are different, therefore matching the original pictures.

  • TimelordTim

    October 25th, 2022 - 12:31pm

    This is the most tempting of this wave for me, probably the only one I’m thinking about getting at the moment.

    Would’ve been a definite purchase if one had been a suicide Dalek, alas that’s not the case.

  • The Outcast

    October 25th, 2022 - 12:24pm

    These look nice, shame about the lack of a bomber Dalek though.

  • Dr Dave

    October 25th, 2022 - 12:21pm

    They look good, but it’s a shame they couldn’t have included the suicide bombs on one of them

  • Judooning

    October 25th, 2022 - 12:07pm

    Wow! On first glance it looked just like standard repaints but a fair bit of new elements have gone Into these!

    Big fan of this one, new eyestalk and dome light moulds are a treat
