    believe it or not, but I believe they may make an emperor dalek if hes shown in the 50th or series 8. it really isn’t that huge and would only cost £30 to £45 and would be very popular!!!

      I would give ANYTHING for an emperor figure widely available not exclusive to figurine collection subscribers

      Indeed it is a must have.

      it could be £50 with john hurt and a guard dalek- from the time war (the john hurt would be different from a single figure)

      Maybe as another set like the TARDIS set, however they release that…?

    There’s a couple more of these on eBay now all priced at over £60. I’m glad I found one for £6.99!!!

      its been send its on general release but i cant find them anywhere

      we have the same problem with the toys r us sets, limited 1st deliveries and no website ordering are giving ebay sellers a field day

    • Exterminator

      October 21st, 2013 - 8:29pm

      I’m sure as more people find them eBay will be flooded which will bring the price down.

      October 21st, 2013 - 8:32pm

      People dont know that though – its not even been “officially” acknowledged by Character – there is no official image of it – not one website you can order it from.

      This is turning into a right old pickle, al dewar stated that they were on general release, maybe it will take a little while for them to get into the shops.

    I’m I saw Al Dewar say something like this on twitter in response to someone asking if it was a rare variant or not ‘No, its just a general release’

    I hope that is still the case as I have strangely fallen in love with this dalek design after seeing it in 3.75″ and 5″…

    sorry but am I the only one that thinks all these variants are a complete con? im so disappointed by the whole 3.75″ its so shabby and you can clearly see no effort has gone into making them!

    • booboo

      October 20th, 2013 - 8:06pm

      yet they are selling much better then the 5″ line.

      we may not like it but these are toys now

    • The Big Friendly Button

      October 20th, 2013 - 9:06pm

      Indeed these are aimed at the younger whoivans, and them being small does have its perks. Like they are easier to afford. Believe me i had my doubts but now I wave welcomed them with open arms.

      i think if they did decent series 6 figures and didn’t keep repeating them i think they would of selled well from 2011-2012

    • booboo

      October 20th, 2013 - 10:18pm

      that was the problem, they had already stopped selling, no new orders no new figures

      Only if you want to, but keep in mind that this is not a chase figure.

      It still could be, it hasn’t been confirmed yet

    • The Big Friendly Button

      October 20th, 2013 - 7:05pm

      It was confirmed by Al Dewar on his twitter.

    • The Living Shadow

      October 20th, 2013 - 7:10pm

      But on the box it didn’t say ‘Guard dalek’ on the box, if they were making a new common figure they would have probably changed the box, or at least the name card

    • The Big Friendly Button

      October 20th, 2013 - 7:22pm

      Maybe, but maybe it was a little addition to the series.

    I know they won’t make any new sculpts until the next wave, but even still, I might have been excited if they’d retooled the arm, but I’ll stick with getting the normal bronze Dalek or Dalek Sec. If it was a 3.75 inch sculpt for the revised Paradigm Daleks or even a damaged Asylum Dalek, I would be happy, but I’m not getting worked up for a minor variant that appeared for a minute or two in the actual episode.

    I hope they do the Emperor Dalek. If they do, they might as well do it soon, because there are so many guard daleks now, but there isn’t an emperor(yet?).

    • The Monitor

      October 20th, 2013 - 10:08am

      Would it? Not all Smythes stock Doctor Who – the two nearest me (one being an hour away) do not stock more than the annual. Whenever you ask them for help its “go online”. Fed up of hearing that when you go to the effort of supporting a physical shop. It is not just Smythes, it is so many shops these days.

    • The Monitor

      October 20th, 2013 - 10:14am

      The Living Shadow – Glad you managed to get one.

      All – There seems to be a trend that certain shops get certain rares. I have visited over 50 shops in the last couple of months. I have done 11 shops that stock 3.75in this weekend, with 5 others that I thought might that didn’t. Nearly all had 12+ figures in because of restocks. Most had 2 gold daleks. It would suggest that these outlets are either receiving a slightly older consignment or that Smythes has a newer case configuration.

    • The Living Shadow

      October 20th, 2013 - 10:15am

      They do now. My one hasn’t sold Dr who in about 2 years and they said they got all the figures and dr who stuff in stock on Friday

    • booboo

      October 20th, 2013 - 10:19am

      that’s why I’m wondering if this may be a Smyths exclusive, we will have to see if they turn up elsewhere

      did they have any ordinary gold Daleks?

    • The Monitor

      October 20th, 2013 - 10:21am

      Thanks. Out of interest does your one show stock online?

      My one is about 9 months old, from a distance I thought it was a carpet shop to begin with. The shelf space for Doctor Who was so small that items were stored on their side. An inch, literally.

      I might try it in the week then.

    • King Peladon

      October 20th, 2013 - 10:30am

    • The Living Shadow

      October 20th, 2013 - 10:35am

      @BooBoo, they didn’t have any normal gold daleks, but it could just be a coincidence as there weren’t many there and I didn’t see any ice warriors

    • The Living Shadow

      October 20th, 2013 - 10:39am

      From memory I’d say there were around:
      3 Doctors
      2 Claras
      0 Ice warriors
      4 Cybermen
      2 Weeping angles
      0 Daleks
      2 Guard Daleks

      The reason it’s had a whole page is because its a new figure, the same reason it fetched the ridiculous price of £70. And anyway, it’s clear to see there are no differences packaging wise.
