The final item and ‘Special Release’ set for this year is also tied to the 1975 story Genesis of the Daleks, and features a different Dalek prop and an iconic moment from the story. This set includes: a ‘Prototype’ and Leader Dalek A plus accessories, plus a Davros action figure as portrayed by Michael Wisher.
This set is inspired by two of the most iconic moments of Genesis of the Daleks. The first is when the lone ‘original prototype’ Mark 3 Travel Machine, later destined to be renamed as a Dalek, is being tested out in the wasteland by its creator Davros. In this scene the Dalek is furnished with its means to interact with its surroundings via its new manipulator arm and focused energy weapon.
The second is when later we see a repeat of this moment in front of the Kaled Scientific Elite, when the weapon with its powerpack attached is placed into the Dalek casing. Moment later when given full autonomy to act, it decides to try and make the Fourth Doctor its very first victim. This Dalek is easy to spot as during its time on screen; it is usually the leader and sports a distinctive bronze gun arm swivel ball. Also in this set is a re-release of the Davros figure with updated paint deco and still featuring the pop open panel on his Dalek-style chair base.
These action figures are available from B&M in the UK from November 2022.
