This review is from: Doctor Who - Mini Radio Control Dalek Battle Pack (Toy)
Bought this for my 5 year old's birthday, who is a huge Dr Who fan. We were expecting much fun to be had with his 6 year old brother (also a huge fan). Initially all was great, daleks trundled hither and thither on the lino floor (the only surface they would work on), shooting each other and emitting some great sounds. However, by the next day, the gold dalek wouldn't shoot unless you held the button down so hard you were in danger of pushing it right through the controller; one of the black dalek control levers kept sticking thus sending said dalek permanently to the right. In under a week, "Goldie" had a broken grill, which I had to glue back, the plunger was all floppy and getting the fire button to work at all was a major feat; meanwhile "Blackie" continued to spin in circles despite my best efforts to unstick the controller. And to cap it all I had to change the batteries in both daleks !
This could have been a fantastic toy (it was while it lasted) but for the appalling build quality. Save your money !
