dalek miniatures and so on. After getting the amazing 12 inch remote control dalek from this company I thought that this set would certainly be worth the low price amazon was offering. Sadly, i was to be greatly dissapointed. The daleks were extremely poor compared to their bigger brothers. They were badly put together with a huge gap down the centre of the gold one, the heads were off at an angle and the exterminater sits in a great gap in the casing where the big sort of ball bearing should be and worst of all in my opinion is a large clear plastic square in the neck section ,presumably for the infra red,this definately ruins there appearence and for someone who was buying them purely for aesthetic purposes this would definitely put me off. Nevertheless i decided to have a go before confining them to the shelf, after struggling to collect a small army of batteries i started them up, they grind shakily across the table in wide arcs or spin round far faster than they should finally aligning them we started shooting eachothers, They sounded well enough and knew when to die which is useful fir battle! though the firing button on the remote is very stiff.
I did have good fun with them across the table but deemed them unworthy of the batteries, Its not a toy i'd reccomend to a child who wants to get much use out of it in fact i wouldn't reccomend it at all certainly a surprise after the brilliance of the big 12" inch version, if you want a dalek toy its well worth spending the extra money on it!!
This could have been a fantastic toy (it was while it lasted) but for the appalling build quality. Save your money !
Firstly, this toy requires TWELVE AAA batteries. Yep, twelve, three in each controller and three in each Dalek. I made sure I got a decent battery as I didn't want it to wear out so that was practically the cost of half the present again!
Secondly, the daleks aren't very easy to control. They have a left and a right toggle. To go forwards, you push both at the same time or end up wobbling forward in a very un-dalek way.
My brother and I played with them on the coffee table and they went reasonably well on the wooden surface. They didn't like the kitchen floor and forget carpet! After ten minutes of use, the black one decided to stop moving. All it could do was sit there while the gold one fired at it. Apparantly, this is pretty common with this set. Also, due to erratic controls, one of the daleks fell off the table (a height of about 60cm) and broke. I can't imagine it lasting very long in the hands of a child.
If I had gotten this for a child as a present, I would be extremely disappointed. As it was, these Dalek's DESERVE to be exterminated!
So Be careful with them and if you have a wirelless internet connection set up at home then note that the gold will not work as well as black. The figure is not really needed but is nice to have buy the doctor if possible as this is limited
I can't complain about the service from amazon though..replaced three times in almost as many days... a pity they're such poor quality!
