YES. YES. OH GOD, YES.

Well, this is getting the fuck pre-ordered out of it. If there’s one thing I’ve been desperate for since Character Options started making Bloody Good Classic Who Action Figures, it’s a Sylv. And if there are two things, it’s a Sylv and an Imperial Dalek, what with Remembrance of the Daleks being the bestest Doctor Who story that ever storied (yes it is, don’t argue).

And yes – I know there’s supposed to be an Eleven Doctors boxset coming out later in the year, and that it’ll retail at an incredibly reasonable £50 compared to these Forbidden Planet Exclusive £25 packs (of which I’ve so far only managed to snag one – the Hartnell and Dalek – missing out on Troughtons and Pertwees). But if there’s one Doctor that I’m guaranteed to want to buy twice (especially when the boxset version will probably be hatless, brown-coated and possibly even umbrella-less), it’s this one. Plus, of course, I’d wager this Dalek will only be available in this set, and when they’re gone, they’re gone. And look at the thing – the redone headlights and slitted plunger are in place, and everything.

God, I love Character Options. God, I love toys.

Seb Patrick once met Paul McGann, who immediately pretended to be Mark McGann. He writes for Den of Geek, BBC America, Film4 and the official Red Dwarf website, among others. He owns over thirty toy Daleks and wishes the Dapol factory tour was still open.

  1. Of course there is also the behatted brown coat version with the classic Tardis, but oddly that one isn’t up yet.

    It’s great and everything, but they have made Sylv look a bit like a Diddy Man.
