#48: Doctor Who - Sound FX Special Weapons Dalek

The Special Weapons Dalek is from the Seventh Doctor story "Remembrance of the Daleks" which was basically a 25th anniversary special for the show. The story features a couple different Dalek factions, and the special weapons Dalek is a standout from the standard design. Gone are the traditional eyestalk, plunger arm, and blaster, replaced with one big cannon. As a consequence, the only articulation featured on this Dalek is the up and down motion of the cannon. It also makes noise, and can play either a laser blast, or a laser blast followed by an explosion. The special weapons Dalek wasn't particularly chatty, even by Dalek standards, so it doesn't say "EXTERMINATE" like you might expect.


  1. do they sell a 1/6thscale Dalek ???
    Looked for years (All were "wrong size"...)

    1. I'm not sure. I know they sell 12 inch Daleks, but I think they are literally 12 inches, rather than 1:6 scale. There is a company making 1:6 scale Doctor Who figures, so I would be surprised if they don't make one at some point.
