Underground Toys have released info on two new classic Doctor Who figure sets - exclusive to Forbidden Planet:
Genesis of the Daleks
The Time Lords send the Doctor and his companions to the planet Skaro at a point early in its history to stop the development of the Daleks so that they become less of a threat to the Universe.
However, Skaro is currently in the grip of a long war of attrition between the Kaleds and the Thals. The Kaleds' chief scientist, Davros, deformed and crippled by radiation, has been experimenting to discover the final form into which his race will mutate. He has devised a protective travel machine in which they can continue to survive. This is instantly recognised by the Doctor as a Dalek.
Escaping from the bunker where Davros and his Elite are based, the Doctor and Harry persuade the Kaled leaders to put the Dalek experiments on hold. Davros retaliates by conspiring with the Thals to destroy his own people with a rocket. He then activates his Daleks and orders them to wipe out the Thals. Once this is complete the Daleks seize control, killing the remainder of the Elite and ultimately Davros himself. Thal survivors detonate explosives at the entrance to the bunker, sealing the Daleks inside, but for how long?
In this fantastic set we present Davros and two 'Genesis' variant Daleks along with the Fourth Doctor in his dufflecoat.
Destiny of the Daleks
The Fourth Doctor and Romana arrive on Skaro and discover that the Daleks are using a group of humanoid slaves and heavy drills to burrow down into the old Kaled city.
The Daleks are at war with the robotic Movellan race who have also arrived on Skaro, determined to find out what the Dalek plan is. It’s soon revealed what the Dalek objective is; Davros their creator! The Movellans insist in joining the Doctor in the race to find him. However on being located by the Doctor, Davros revives, his life support systems having held him in suspended animation ever since being exterminated by his own creations centuries before. Davros is soon rescued by the Daleks though, and he quickly surmises that the battle computers of the two races are locked in a logical stalemate, and that he could break it by introducing an element of intuition.
The Movellans, having reached the same conclusion, insist the Doctor to do likewise for them. Knowing this, Davros attempts to destroy the Movellan ship using a suicide squad of Daleks loaded with bombs. The Doctor soon disables the robot Movellans, and returns to the Kaled City and tricks Davros into detonating the explosives before they reach the ship. The defeated Davros is cryogenically frozen until the freed slave workers can take him to Earth and put on trial for his crimes.
This action figure set brings collectors the Fourth Doctor, Davros, and two Grey Daleks variants.
The Genesis of the Daleks figure set is on sale from 15th April, while the Destiny of the Daleks figure set is out on 16th May - both exclusive to Forbidden Planet stores and priced £34.99 each.
