    Hmm, most of these have been found in 2’s. I’ve got 4 now, I got the first 2 both from smyths (the 2 on the photos) and the next 2 I got were both from an independant store in bicester. Still not sure how rare they are though, they’re clearly not as rare as the ‘chase’ figures, but not as common as the normal figures. Also if they were making a new figure, why wouldn’t they make a new box for it? The box says “6 to collect” and if this isn’t rare than obviously there are 7

      Hopefully soon they will change it to ‘guard dalek’

      Oh, and I emailed CO and they said that they’d never heard of this figure

    • Dalek Mika

      November 17th, 2013 - 6:32pm

      Yeah then we could order it! its quite weird maybe the workers did it as a little nod to whovians and painted them black and the customer services dept never heard

    Theres more on ebay and other sites e.g. who blackpool which may mean this is replacing normal daleks in shipments now

      I hope We get an ‘assault’ daleks before Mr Dewar deletes his tweets I saw him say to someone he had already made one which may mean they will be a chase variant or just a standard daleks instead of the current one but I wouldn’t want a teletubby but after the imperial guard and sec its most certain I will be a ‘2005’

      Mid November ……? Hmmm sounds like a plan maybe the wave will have somthing to do with the 50th look at it this way the 50th DVD comes out 10 days after the 50th that’s on the 2 of December so retailers are using this as an advantage before charistmas day so they get more money retailers have probably been waiting for this they just love it when a plan comes to gether”…!

      Plus, with all of these [5″ and 3.75″] Emperor’s guard Daleks drifting about, is it possible that they feature in the 50th? I mean, the manufacturers probably didn’t know, but the BBC could easily go, “Hey, Emperor’s Guard Daleks would be a good idea.” The 9th Doctor 5″ one was because it was a new Dalek for no.9 but why the 3.75″, and in such close proximity to the release of the 5″ version?

    • Exterminator

      October 24th, 2013 - 1:27pm

      That’s 3 sold so far on eBay.

      2 at £69.99 and 1 last night for £49.99
      There are another 2 on eBay right now. Both with buy it now prices over £60.

      All chase figures started off being ridiculous prices on eBay, but they soon come down once loads of them start appearing.

      There’s a looped angel at the moment on eBay for a buy it now price of £24.99 with free p&p. I’ve seen them go for much more.

    It’s like this they wouldn’t change the packaging because they want to save money and then this type of dalek might be in the 50th and it might not even be a guard dalek every one presumed it was a guard dalek because it was next to the dalek emperor but in actual fact it is a time war dalek…….?

      My Dalek was from Smyths, the cards were from a newsagents and the present bag was from my family (I don’t mean it was from a shop, I mean it was from my family). It’s nice getting random surprise presents, isn’t it?

      I went especially to the Fareham Smythes yesterday lunchtime. Helpfully they immediately asked what I wanted. “Doctor Who”. I was escorted to section without any Doctor Who. After speaking to other colleagues it transpires that somewhen in the next month they have read that some items are coming in.

      I am again staggered at how an expanding toy chain cannot foresee the marketing potential of Doctor Who. Even Robert Dyas has put out a Christmas range already.

      I am singularly unimpressed with Smythes.

    • The Living Shadow

      October 22nd, 2013 - 6:00pm

      It’s because last time Smyths sold Dr who stuff it sold extremely baldly, I mean, they were so desperate to get rid of it, I got the 11th Doctors TARDIS playset for just £12.99

  • The Big Friendly Button

    October 22nd, 2013 - 7:09am

    I think I may have just pieced together a theorey on what is going on. Al dewar stated on his twitter that these daleks were going to be on general release, so we know that they will be easy to find.But he also stated that they would be in later shipments of the figures which does back up Booboo’s theorey that the bronze daleks are being replaced.

    If this emperor guard figure is to be a general release figure, why then is it packaged the same way as all the previous 6 chase variant figures?

    It’s packaging just says dalek and not emperors guard dalek (like the toys r us 9th Dr/Dalek set does) and the reverse side is identical to the previous wave and still shows the completely gold dalek in the photograph just like the black dalek sec variant did.

      Maybe Booboo is right and these are replacing the bronze daleks.

      I hope they are slowly replacing the wave 1 figures with new variants… e.g

      Dalek– Emperor Guard
      11th doctor- black waistcoat
      Clara– JTTCOTT
      Weeping angel– smiling
      Ice warrior– with chains?
      cyberman-with arm gun & no blue chest piece

      That would be a grand idea.

      They wouldn’t make a Clara from JTTCOTT, because that would require a new sculpt

      no idea, maybe they are changing the gold one for this one in new deliveries but that’s still going to make it rare for a while
