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.

    What is exactly the crack with this dalek…no slat on front which was assured would be there as photo on front of magazine was of the actual figurine. Then no mesh on the dalek.to top it off the dalek came broken and missing appendages.its a nice figure but for £109 should be right.As luck would have it I have spare appendages off a broken bronze dalek but that should not be the point.quality control is horrendous. I called customer service and was told to send it back and when they get it back will send another as long as they have them in stock. And my luck they won’t and will be waiting a year or pay stupid prices on scalperbay…why not just send a bag with the appendages in but they are not allowed to do that.I am one very very unhappy bunny.Will Eaglemoss read this???????Let’s see eh…..not counting my chickens though.

      I have been holding off ordering this but remained hopeful after what Neil said about the magazine picture being the actual reference for the model itself.
      No way is a model with inaccurate features and missing parts worth £109 of anyone’s money, so it’s a thanks but no thanks for me as the design fault has not been looked at, and I can imagine everyone is the same unless they sort the production mould out, and make a corrected batch.
      Neil, we would appreciate your thoughts on this please.

      Neil deals with the magazine and PR deals with the final offering, in view of other matters arising today we need to review how we handle things in future.

      I’d value his opinion on the situation as he is effectively the Eaglemoss representative on here.

      In what way does saying Neil’s opinion is valued and asking a civil question warrant a comment being deleted or rejected?

      Funnily enough i have a life away from this site and had gone to bed and all comments were on moderation which i wont see, like now until early morning, so nothing was deleted or rejected.

      You best find a platform that gives you more instant attention.

      Apologies, my posts showed up on here then both disappeared so I thought they had been deleted for some reason, no offence meant in any way, just a misunderstanding.

      When they go on moderation you see them when you fist post them but no one else does, they will then vanish next time you look until put through.

      These mega models are a complete rip off and the latest fiasco shows the disregard Eaglemoss have for their customers or accuracy. I’ve yet to find a really good one!
      As for sending out missing bits, they probably hven’t got them that’s why they can’t.

    Like to see a large Terileptil, Foamasi or Terileptil android. Something more obscure for a change.
    No it won’t happen though due to low sales I suppose.

    I am all for continuing figurines but does anyone think that the weeping angel is very close to the release of the genesis dalek? Weeping angel fab figurine no dispute there but by the time 200 comes around the time lord series and the TLV sets will also be at an end as we have 10 months left to go. It seems to me personally and I really hope I am wrong that they are trying to get mega figurines out whilst they can as no word has been forthcoming about an extension.That then would blow my speculation out of the water and I hope it does but what do people think…some would like it to end at 200 but continue with specials and sets and others want it to continue. 50/50 percent???????

      I wouldn’t mind if the main series finishes at 200, as long as the packs and specials continue.
      Won’t be content until everything (within reason) is made.

    Has anyone asked Neil about the mesh and the missing slat above the gun and box? Is that picture just an early picture of it?

      That and the stalk eye as it seems a lot larger on the prototype dalek. Hopefully this prototype is or can be rectified and changed.

    • Neil Corry

      August 15th, 2020 - 10:32am

      What’s probably happened is that the slat was broken before the photos were taken. You see the magazine cover? The Dalek illustration is taken from the same CG sculpt used for the physical model.

      I haven’t seen an actual model, and I am now going to be worrying all weekend whether this slat exists :)))

    Slat and mesh needed and a little bit smaller eye. Just like on the magazine on the front.

      Does anyone have any updated pictures of this , with a missing slat I can’t believe that’s the final version, if it is that’s one hell of a blunder on a figure that is supposed to be an accurate depiction, especially at the asking price.

  • Dav McKenzie

    July 17th, 2020 - 1:42am

    Ouch! The price has sky rocketed from £84.99 to £109.99

    I’m glad I got mine before the hike.

      Had both the earlier Mega Daleks in my basket all ready to take advantage of their offer but with that sudden price hike they’re out of the basket again!

      Well done for getting an early order in Dav.

    The price tag though, I just can’t see a justification. If it were 100%, screen used level of accuracy, then I would happily pay anything they wanted. But no, not for this. There are better fan models out there for the same price. Sorry guys.

      Defending EagleMoss. I have been a keen collector of these figurines since they started. Yes, they do have their problems. But I know of no other company, that has produced this number of characters from the Doctor Who series and at this price? With even moor on the way. I hope to see them go past 200, but we will have to wait and see. I for one am happy with this product

    • Martino

      July 20th, 2020 - 6:20pm

      I’ve had two Product Enterprise R/C Daleks serving as static (posable) models for years, and they seem to have the exact same level of detail as this. I just can’t think of any reason to add this Mega to my collection, at this price. It’s nice, but not that nice.

  • NickD

    July 16th, 2020 - 12:53pm

    It’s very nice, hopefully just a prototype! It’s nowhere near as good as the ones Titan made about 2012-15. They need both neck mesh and slat shoulder mesh sculpted detail at this sort of scale. Heck even the cloverleaf neck rods would be great.

    Is there any way of purchasing from EagleMoss, individual blue boxes? Because I would like to separate the figurines that come as a pair. It doesn’t matter which Doctor is on the back.

    Right now Eaglemoss’s site won’t let me checkout (on my Mac or on my iPhone browser) – it keeps saying ‘Shipping Method not selected’ – when I have. Will keep trying.

    I think it’s the eye which makes the figure look ‘wrong’ – it looks like it’s just taken a banned substance! Looks like it has about the same level of detail as the Product Enterprise 12″ Genesis Dalek of 20 years ago (and possibly more expensive?)

    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.

      They need some mesh effect on the ‘neck’ section .

      I wonder why the dalek has a missing slat (above gunstick),

    • Ricky

      July 15th, 2020 - 1:32pm

      If that is the final design, that missing collar slat is a deal breaker for me , surely it can’t go into production with a major fault such as that? Maybe Neil could shed some light on this?
      The megas are great otherwise.

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

    Reply
    • Gareth Pugh

      June 19th, 2020 - 8:58pm

      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
