The Daleks were created by leading Kaled scientist Davros to end the war between the Kaleds and the Thals and take power, but he was seemingly killed by his own creation. The Fourth Doctor (Tom Baker) is sent to Skaro to alter the development of the Daleks or, if he can’t, to destroy them. If the Doctor can’t give the Daleks a conscience, will he rid the universe of their terror?

On Skaro, two races were fighting a generations-long war – the warrior race the Thals and a race of philosophers and teachers called the Kaleds. In an effort to end the war and house mutated Kaleds, their leading scientist and megalomaniac Davros believes that through his creations, the “Mark III travel machines” or “Daleks”, he can become the supreme being and ruler of the Universe. He uses them to arrange the extinction of his own people and the Thals, but the Daleks ultimately turn on Davros, killing his supporters and shooting him.

The figurine shows the Daleks as they appear in the 1975 adventure Genesis of the Daleks, recreated in die-cast metal as official hand-painted models. The model is accompanied by an in-depth profile magazine, including concept art and interviews about the evolution of the Doctor Who villains.

    I hope that’s not the finished product, I can’t put my finger on it but it’s not quite right. Would hope to see a detailed Remembrance or Resurrection Dalek before yet another Genesis, but hopefully this will find a market.

    Is there much exclusive stuff in the MEGA figures’ magazines?

      Well, it depends what you mean by ‘exclusive stuff’. They don’t recycle or reprint articles from previous regular issues. That said, much of what the mags feature (and they are often especially nicely designed and a bit more of a dense read than the fortnightly issues) is the kind of stuff you may have read before (as I say, story summaries etc.) Worth having though. Weirdly, with the 5th Mega (Davros, last year) the size of the magazine dropped from sort-of A4 (weirdly they were about 1cm less ‘tall’ than the regular issues, buts same width, so they only just manage to stay held in the folders), to A5.
      Oh and thinking about it, they did use the exact same Mag for the Mega K9 as for the 1:21 scale K9 issue. They came out at pretty much the same time so it made sense, I guess.

    I thought they might do this one – the 20pp magazines that came with the first 2 Mega Daleks contain a sort of potted story guide to each of their TV outings – the 1963 Dalek’s mag featured all the 1960s Dalek stories, and the modern RTD bronze Dalek’s one covered from the 2005 return onwards – the 1970s have not had the same treatment yet so I’m guessing that will be in this one… Looks great. Don’t know why, but there is something particularly menacing about the darker filing-cabinet grey Daleks from this story
