I love unusual, non-screen colo(u)r schemes.
What are the chances of seeing more Daleks in colo(u)rs from the various comics?
IIRC, the Terrestrial Toymaker said a few things about rotocast figures a while back, and I believe the upshot was rotocasting was a cheaper process in itself, but produced lower yields (i.e. more unusable figures), so cost-wise it was a wash.For Luck's Sake wrote: ↑Wed Oct 14, 2020 1:06 pmHow does rotocasting a solid figure compare cost-wise to the tooling for a figure with articulation?
Is it less? More? About the same?
Also: how much does the actual weight if the figure/set play into decisions on choosing figures and sets? (particularly economic-wise)
A Davros skirt + The Mutants top half. No new sculpting, but no doubt a new cast- unless the CD skirts are seperate to the tops.Dalekoddjob wrote: ↑Tue Oct 13, 2020 7:55 amI'd think it unlikely as they are very different to ordinary Daleks. Though I'd love to see one done properly.CharlieTheWhovian wrote: ↑Sun Oct 11, 2020 4:06 pmI wouldn't rule it out to be fair, we've had comic Daleks (8th Doctor and Dalek Alpha from the TRU set) and audio Daleks (the BF B&M sets)
The top and bottom halves are not separate though. The standard Daleks are basically 3 pieces of 2 sides and gun box area plus neck rings head and base. But I do now wonder if its possible to do as a custom if you can get hold of a Davros.DalekCheese wrote: ↑Thu Oct 15, 2020 8:04 pmA Davros skirt + The Mutants top half.

Ideally just new tooling, though.
Odd typo on it giving an erroneous air date, but lovely otherwise...even if were it a fake.TheOnComingStorm wrote: ↑Tue Oct 27, 2020 9:18 amAl could you please shed some light on this. A new 12th Dr and Davros set has been found in a store in Australia. I guess it's a store like our BandMs. What's the story with this? Exclusive to Aus or will the UK be getting it. Also, are there any differences with the figures compared to their original release. Thank you

Unfortunately yet another release has been blown on us by over zealous customers overseas. There is an official announcement coming soon was meant to be Friday but could be as soon as today? Its all a bit unfortunate really ... its not an AU exclusive .. that in itself would be extraordinary!...
Wait for the announcement and I’m sure you’ll all be pleased
