The second History of the Daleks Set features two Daleks from the Third Doctor’s final encounter on-screen with these foes. The TARDIS suffers a complete energy drain and crash lands on the planet Exxilon and, for this story, a visually impressive, but sadly never seen again, silver and matt black livery was chosen to revive the ‘60s feel’ of the props. The first Dalek figure in the set is the ‘unofficial’ leader from this story, and sports orange-tinted dome lights, as well as having the special ‘machine gun’ style weapon, whereas Dalek figure two has clear dome lights and the standard exterminator gun.
Al Dewar Creative Director commented: “I think and hope the fans and collectors will really like these new sets. We have really spent time updating the look of the figures to make them different. The Eighth Doctor set, especially the TV Movie and Night of the Doctor figures are a real delight and have a much more sophisticated look, befitting a modern action figure. I think they are the best yet. The Tenth Doctor sets have a very different and fresh feel and come with two never released variants. The Dalek sets not only feature new packaging, but we have finally brought to the fans the Dalek Supreme and a fully transparent Dalek from Planet of the Daleks, and the Death to the Daleks set is also very close to my heart!”
These action figures are available from B&M in the UK from August 2022.
