The ultimate beings in the universe don't deserve this!!!,
This review is from: Doctor Who - Mini Radio Control Dalek Battle Pack (Toy)
As a result of the new series I have become obsessed with Doctor who and particularly the daleks and have accumulated quite a few
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!!
