That is a thing of beauty and the gun is brilliant. Can’t wait to see what your next project is, I have 2-3 on the go at the moment with something special planned for when these are done and then a very special 18” project.
Hope you'll be sharing them with us. I shall look forward to seeing them!

The Lockdown Dalek Project part 5. So this isn't a Dalek, but it's closely related and I've always fancied having a go. Here's my attempt at a Roboman from the Dalek Invasion Earth 2150AD movie. He's not really screen accurate but I am quite pleased at how he's turned out. Made from an old Action Man and accessories.

And here he is with his masters on display.

That looks great with all the movie daleks. I have a 5” custom with some of mine. How many 12” daleks do you have altogether?

Goodness. A lot! My list is:

A full set of nine PE Daleks plus a prototype interchangeable arms version
A full set of four PE movie Daleks plus the gold and silver chrome versions
A full set of (nine?) Character new series Daleks plus Davros, the British and American Icon 50th anniversary Daleks (the ordinary bronze comes in several different versions)
A full set of four Character new paradigm Daleks
Maybe fifteen custom PE Daleks and about the same number of custom Character Daleks

So I guess around seventy to seventy-five in total.

I love that roboman so much, super neato, the movie robomen were so much more interesting to look at than the tv versions. And any excuse to put cribbens in a pvc jumpsuit is going to be worthwhile right off the bat.

I agree. My version is a little more buff than Bernard, though!

That is an ungodly amount of 12” Daleks. You don’t need anybody to, uh, take some off your hands, do you? :lol:

But fr that’s uncomfortably close to £9000 new

It is a lot. I have a very patient wife! As to value, you're probably not far wrong. It's enough that we list it separately on our home contents insurance. I was very lucky with some of my purchases. Even some of the really rare ones I got for less than I was expecting. Also, my customs are very cheap - usually broken. I won't spend more than about £20 on custom fodder!

Might have given the corporate drone looking over your insurance a laugh, at least.

Love the Roboman, I imagine it's pretty hard to get something that looks passably screen accurate, and you've done an excellent job.
