Doctor Who B&M 2022 The Creation of the Daleks Collector Set

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

The ‘Special Release’ set for this year is also tied to the 1975 story ‘Genesis of the Daleks’ and features a different Dalek prop and an iconic moment from the story.

This set includes:

  • ‘Prototype’ and Leader Dalek A plus accessories
  • Davros (Michael Wisher) action figure.

This set is inspired by two of the most iconic moments of ‘Genesis of the Daleks’. The first is when the lone ‘original prototype’ Mark 3 Travel Machine, later destined to be renamed as a Dalek, is being tested out in the wasteland by its creator Davros. In this scene the Dalek is furnished with its means to interact with its surroundings via its new manipulator arm and focused energy weapon.

The second is when later we see a repeat of this moment in front of the Kaled Scientific Elite, when the weapon with its powerpack attached is placed into the Dalek casing. Moment later when given full autonomy to act, it decides to try and make the Fourth Doctor it very first victim.

This Dalek is easy to spot as during its time on screen it is usually the leader and sports a distinctive bronze gun arm swivel ball. Also in this set is a re-release of the Davros figure with updated paint deco and still featuring the pop open panel on his dalek style chair base.

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!”

    Since these have “Released” I have not seen a single Davros set in any of my stores. This whole things’ a joke.

    Do you think there’s any chance of Character reissuing these sets? It’s ridiculous that so many of us never get chance to buy them because our local stores either never get them in, or the scalpers grab them first.

    The whole idea of store exclusives is ludicrous. Can somebody please explain to me what the point is? If it’s to bring people in to spend more then they’ve failed spectacularly. If they’re not there I just walk out.

      I doubt they will, but its been the same with these sets for years now so nothing is any different, it clearly works for B&M as the sets keeps coming year after year. They were available on-line for a while as well, we went to great lengths let people know, all hours as well, a first for this year, and all sets in the future might be on-line as well.

    • Martino

      January 19th, 2023 - 1:46pm

      B&M see these as toys, not collectibles, and toys that will likely fly off the shelves quickly (though my local B&M still has a lot of peg-warmers, possibly why new sets are rarely ordered). There’s nothing in their business model saying every collector in the country has to get access to these sets. Being ‘lucky’ enough to use a B&M regularly for household shopping, I can see very little of anything is on the shelves long or in regular supply. It is what it is.

      I’m just wondering how Al will push the Doctor Who line once all the possible Dalek sets are exhausted. Maybe they WILL reset and reissue these sets, or put these Daleks in other monster sets?

    • John

      January 19th, 2023 - 3:37pm

      If B&M didn’t have these exclusives then we wouldn’t have any.There was ample opportuinity to purhase this set online. I’m amazed how many people didn’t buy it and are complaining they can’t find one!

    Wakefield area here not of these at all and no dalek history ones anyone got any idea when they will be out

  • Mark

    December 8th, 2022 - 1:30pm

    Hi – does anyone know where there may be stock of the Dalek sets (9,10, 11 or 12) in the Sheffield area? I’ve been looking for my son since early September in around 4 to 5 stores every week in the area and never seen any stock. I’d like to buy at least 1 for Xmas but still no stock (loads of figures but no Daleks) and it doesn’t appear that there has ever been any stock as no labels to indicate otherwise.

    I can see that I could buy from Ebay but I’m loathed to pay at least £15-20 more per set for chancers who have gone into store and got lucky and bought up all the stock.

    Any advice would be welcomed!

    • Alydon2007

      December 8th, 2022 - 7:32pm

      I’m planning to gradually off-load my sets, but only have up to set 10. I was planning to wait until after Christmas to sell them (either on Roobarbs or ebay)… I don’t want to make a profit on them, simply to get the money back I’ve spent on them.

      If you really can’t get sets 9 or 10 any other way, then I’d be happy to sell them on for £20 each plus however much the P & P would be (not sure how much that would be – will have to go down to my local PO to find out)… but I really would prefer to leave it till after Christmas. If you are interested then maybe drop me a line (through booboo perhaps?) and we can talk about it more… Cheers

    I’m surprised CO hasn’t tried to do a History Of Davros series here. Two packs with a repackaged Davros from the collector’s sets of the past and a running change Dalek. History Of Davros Set #2 – Destiny Of The Daleks would be the Davros figure packaged with the information sphere like it was from the Destiny Of The Daleks collector’s set. #3 would be the Resurrection Davros with opening panel and a Dalek. #4 would be the Revelation Davros with alternate severed hand and a gold and white Dalek. #5 would be the Remembrance Imperial Dalek Davros and an Imperial gold and white Dalek.

    • masterdoctorten

      October 28th, 2022 - 11:45am

      It would be nice, and might be happening as a Destiny set is highly likely.

      BUT, the emperor Davros sculpt has been lost. Al has confirmed it will NOT be rereleased

    • Martino

      October 28th, 2022 - 3:10pm

      Any available Davros sculpts could just as easily be fitted in with the History of the Daleks series as is, as evidence by the Creation of the Daleks set. Really that’s just a branding issue. Though, as the Coal Hill set has shown they’re not really strictly sticking to the chronology, we might yet get a surprise Davros release outside of the History range?

      (Also, unrelated, the Coal Hill set pretty much implies we will get a new Renegade Dalek set for the History range, which will be cool)

    • David Minter

      October 28th, 2022 - 6:36pm

      Ah, I was unaware the Imperial Emperor Dalek Davros mold had been lost. Good thing I got the set when it was new.

      What about the destroyed Imperial Dalek? Was its mold lost, too? Since the Emperor cannot be rereleased, a History Set for Remembrance could include an Imperial white and gold Dalek and the destroyed Imperial Dalek, if that mold still exists. And a 2nd Remembrance History Of The Daleks set could be made featuring a warrior Renegade Dalek and the Renegade Black Dalek.

      What is your problem with this set I mean for those of you who have a classic davros figure then I can see why you disapprove but for those like me having a classic davros and dalek set is like winning the lottery in doctor who merchandise so I will be looking out for it also happy Halloween to you

    • Anthony Fagn

      November 1st, 2022 - 9:25am

      Bit of an insult really putting these two in a window box WITH insert backdrop whereas the history sets have no backdrop and no window box.

    • Jamie

      November 1st, 2022 - 9:49am

      This set is rumoured to be more expensive than the standard Dalek packs which would explain that.

    • Anthony Fagn

      November 21st, 2022 - 9:17am

      Just noticed that on the bottom of the box it says 1 davros figure(Wisher) so I assume there is a valid reason for putting his name on the box?

    • Anthony Fagn

      December 31st, 2022 - 3:53pm

      I’d like to think we are getting a Destiny Davros set as Wishers name is on the bottom of the box. Otherwise I’m totally lost as to why bother putting his name (as if to differentiate) the different models of Davros…

    I hope they do a Molloy Davros sometime as I know a fair few people are itching to do Customs.

  • Neil

    October 26th, 2022 - 6:08pm

    Hoping this set, and the First Doctor and TARDOS set will be available to order online from their website. I know there are issues with the Daleks due to them having same product code, I believe? I really can’t be bothered trailing round all the B&Ms again. There was only one store in my area which got the most r cent waves I calculated I travelled over 150 miles to source all the sets I needed, in the space of a week…

      Hello Neil, are you near Doncaster?
      I only ask because I remember someone from near Doncaster, drove all the way to Grimsby to get the Dalek sets.
      And that same day I commented on here that Parkgate had them in-stock. (Rotherham).

    This set’s pretty cool. Nice to have another classic Davros release, the Dalek looks nice and it has accessories. Shame again about the colour though.

  • David Minter

    October 25th, 2022 - 2:33pm

    I don’t know why CO keeps reusing the Resurrection Of The Daleks running change Davros mold with the opening panel. That was only featured in that one story, but I believe it was also the mold used in the Revelation Of The Daleks action figure set from like 10 years ago. In that story, the panel doesn’t make an appearance, if I recall correctly. Mostly because for a good portion of Revelation’s running time, Davros is just a decoy head and not in his Dalek life support chair.

    • masterdoctorten

      October 25th, 2022 - 5:24pm

      Why not? You don’t have to remove it so it’s just a cool feature to have as an extra.

    • David Minter

      October 25th, 2022 - 8:03pm

      I would think the mold without the opening panel would be cheaper to make. Fewer moving parts should, in theory, reduce the amount of materials needed for the final product.

    • masterdoctorten

      October 26th, 2022 - 11:28am

      David that’s true in theory, but they would have to remake the mould without it in the first place. And if they did that, we would likely lose the moulding for this one, like what happened to the slats on the Imperial Dalek.

      It’s far cheaper to leave the mould as it is so that it can be used when wanted

    • Anonymous

      October 26th, 2022 - 12:29pm

      The panel is present in Revelation of the Daleks. It isn’t opened in the story, but is still visible on Davros’ chair.
      As for why CO are keeping it, it might be because, once the mould is changed, it can’t be changed back. Like when the neck bin for the Renegade Dalek was retooled for the TRU re-release, & the following Imperial Dalek release had an inaccurate neck bin with sculpted mesh because of this.
      However, I’d say it’s more likely that, because a lot of people already have the Genesis 4 pack, they might not buy this release. Even less people would buy a Davros/Destiny 2-pack (if CO end up releasing one.) CO probably don’t see the expense of retooling the chair for 1 or 2 releases as worth it, because the panel is accurate in 2 of the 4 stories which used that chair.

    • David Minter

      October 27th, 2022 - 12:32am

      I would have thought there were two separate molds. The Genesis set Davros one and the one for Resurrection. I was unaware that CO might have altered this mold used for the Genesis and Destiny sets to add the opening panel instead of creating a 2nd mold from the first and altering that to include the opening panel.

    • The Outcast

      October 27th, 2022 - 9:01am

      I’m pretty sure the Genesis Davros always had the opening panel on the figure.

    • Anonymous

      October 27th, 2022 - 10:21am

      Its the same basic chair on all 4 previous CO releases but with a new top panel replacing the Genesis one. The 4 packs all came out fairly close to each other so probably paid for the moulds.

    • David Minter

      October 27th, 2022 - 9:00pm

      I’m only going by memory, but I don’t recall the Genesis and Destiny set Davros figures having the opening panel. And it would make sense they wouldn’t because the panel didn’t appear until Resurrection. While it would have been a nice bit of continuity that was not present in the stories, it seems unlikely CO would have designed Davros to always have an opening panel until it was present in the story.

      You can remove the plunger and gun from the Dalek and these instruments attach to them so the doctor or davros etc can hold them in their hands

      When Will They Be Able To Get From The Character Options Website?

    • TimelordTim

      October 27th, 2022 - 10:35am

      Jamie, unfortunately never. These won’t be on Character Options website as they are B&M exclusives.

      The only reason a few 3-figure packs from last year’s sets recently made it to the Character website was because of unsold or returned American stock.

      But if you mean when will they be on B&M website, we’ve seen with the last wave that some sets are sold that way, but not all. Maybe this will turn up on B&M website when also available in-store, but that’s more likely with the 3-figure packs that are ordered in higher numbers and sit around on shelves longer. The Dalek, TARDIS and likely this Davros set will sell well and go from the shelves quickly enough that they may not bother putting them on the B&M website at all. We’ll just have to wait and see.

    • Colgon

      November 3rd, 2022 - 2:51pm

      They (Presumably) are extendable mech arms to offer better manipulation of said blaster & plunger
