knobrot iDaleks...

for some reason my ftp software is buggering about so I can't upload the pics to Frothers or LAF where it's been brought up... so...

free with this weeks Doctor Who Adventures magazine (comic) are 5 new style Daleks... in horrible orange plastic... right... they are a bit crappy looking, but that's because they look exactly like the iDalek and that looks crap... there are 5... but of the 5 I had, only 1 had the two halves aligned correctly, and it's taken me 20 minutes to pop the other 4 apart so I can try and glue them straight... they are big, obviously... but eyeline wise match the Heresy Nerdlord...

and the MU old new style Dalek - which I still prefer...

Yep. I hate the new Daleks. They should be... exterminated.

Indeed, my thoughts on the story here, but I envy your access to these little horrors (hard to find here in NZ), especially given their ideal scale. Bummer about the fix-up necessary, but I'm looking forward to seeing you work your magic on them!

I think in miniature the vivid colours will be their saving grace

What is the issue number that they come with?

carrma said...

Thanks for posting this--not crazy about the new Dalek design, but will definitely try to hunt some down because these may be the only ones created that are the proper scale.

issue 170 I think...
it still shows last weeks issue on the DWAM website

image to the left currently says the free gift is an inflatable TARDIS with issue 169 and by all accounts that was last week...

You prompted me to get some of these new Daleks. As with everyone else it seems I dislike them as well, but heyho - the pressures of staying up-to-date. The new sculpts do seem in scaled with each other though.

Which seemlessly leads me onto the note that, just so you know, I've blatently nicked your "good dalek - bad dalek" piccie for my blog (with credits). If this is a problem please get in touch and I'll remove it with apologies for my cheek!

no worries : )

Like the paint job on the modern series 1-4 Dalek!

If I may ask a tangental question? How do the Micro Universe daleks compare scale wise to the old Citadel/FASA ones?

trynda1701 said...

Plus, how do they both compare to the BTD Daleks as well? (Would like to finally get round to painting up the FASA Daleks I got hold of on eBay last year, and was wondering about maybe commiting a few purchases of MU figs as well!)

well, part of your answer is here

MU and BTD Dalek in that pic... haven't got any of the Citadel ones anymore, but did have some parts from the plastic boxset and they are small compared to the MU and BTD, which may not bother you, but it does me... no pics though...
