My friend Willie over at ThinkGeek sent me this new remote control Dalek to play with. If you know much about Doctor Who, you’ll know what a Dalek is.
Doctor Who is a guilty pleasure in the US and an obsession in the UK. Amazingly the show is still being produced today with the tenth successive Doctor now in play. Of course we all know the Daleks are the real stars of Doctor Who. With a toilet plunger in one hand and a elongated egg beater in the other, Daleks are some of the deadliest cyborgs in the galaxy. Bitter from being mutated by radiation and stuffed inside an inferior robot body, the Kaled people hate the Doctor (and staircases) and are bent on universal domination… and who can blame them really? Finally you too can act out your Dalek fantasies with these detailed R/C replicas. Each R/C Dalek stands 12 inches high and is happiest when gliding around your home shouting “EX-TER-MIN-ATE!” and hunting for the Doctor. Complete with tank-like controls and digitized grating Dalek voices you’ll feel just like you’re in your own low-budget BBC telly show.
Dalek features include:
- Authentic detailed R/C Dalek stands 12″ high
- Powered rotating head
- Moving laser turret
- Flashing “eye” lights and gun turret
- Two channel R/C with tanklike controls
- 8 Dalek sound samples including speech and exterminator gun sound
- Directly control sound effects from buttons on the remote
