Once again Character Options have missed a trick but let's start with the positives. The 'pilot' dalek is wonderfully detailed with the unique colouring of the black/grey head & intermittent side panels plus it is fully posable which surprised me for a 3.75" figure. The firing canon is extremly powerful & the whole thing looks quite splendid in it's exploded view. Now onto the negatives. This is supposed to be a replica of the Patrol Ships used in the Time War & the panels extended open are supposed to close to make one huge dalek protecting it's pilot which would have looked great ... it doesn't ... you are stuck with it in the exploded view which sort of defeats the object. The panels pop off far too easily (just a plastic ball joint holds them in place) & I can foresee after a few months of removing & replacing them they will simply become loose & fall off. The projectile that fits into the firing cannon is so obviously plastic (the colour dosen't help) it spoils the overall look of the model. Another failing is that on the interior floor of the Patrol Ship are two little slots that the pilot daleks side wheels fit into to hold it in position. The problem is where they are situated because once you place the pilot in position his plunger arm extends beyond the control panel to operate the ship so how is he supposed to work the controls? Little details like this frustrate me & show how little thought or care was put into the design. In a child's hands this would probably not last more than a few days, maybe a couple of weeks if you are really lucky so I am completely confused as to who their target market is ... as a display piece it works fine once you remove the cheap looking plastic projectile but if used as a toy not only is the durability an issue but the projectile from the firing canon could easily cause serious injury to another child or a pet ... it packs quite a punch! To me this could have been so much better but isn't that always the case with Character Options? I wanted to award it 2.5 stars really because it falls between two stools & really doesn't satisfy either. If this was a school report it would read "must try harder".

Disappointing. I have marked this down as the panels don't move to enclose the Dalek pilot. Also, a few lights/sound effects wouldn't have gone amiss.
The cannon fires well and the panels do pop off, but that's it. This is more of an adult collectors toy than a childrens's toy which is a shame as my son was swayed by the TV adverts.
We also purchased the 12th doctor Sonic Screwdriver and that is being played with constantly whilst this Dalek is left sitting on the shelf.

Bought for my Dalek mad son. +s it comes with its own Dalek, in a paint job not available anywhere else, the missile launcher works great (maybe too great). -s The panels easily fall off, they don't open and close like they did in the show, the missile is too easy to loose. Dalek doesn't stay in the cockpit (no way to secure it).

One of the best Doctor Who items of recent times, but it cost me a whacking £29.99 when the retail price is £19.99

Did not know why to expect but my son loves it. Thought the whole exterior of the rocket/pod would split open but it doesn't. It is only this way because it does not cost a lot which works for everyone! He has not put it down since.

Son was made up when this cam. It was bought by my son with an Amazon gift card which he had for this birthday. It even fires a missile.
