Weta’s Dalek Goes on Discount

Weta Dalek 1

This is shaping up to be a good week for fans of Davies’ Whoneverse. In addition to the hilarious wrap party videos that recent hit the net, Weta Workshop has decided to discount several pieces from their Doctor Who product line. The first is this killer replica of a Dalek as originally designed for the series one episode “Dalek,” featuring Christopher Eccleston. While Christopher’s time as the Doctor was short lived, that episode remains memorable as the first appearance of the Daleks since Davies had revived the series and paved the way for their eventual return in future seasons. The prop measures roughly a foot in height and normally retails for $225. If you order from Weta’s online shop before November 4th, you can save 50% and pick one up for only $112.50. Not too bad if you ask me.

The second prop they have on sale is considerably cheaper than the first, and may not be as iconic, but this Sycorax helmet still holds an important place in Doctor Who. It belonged to the first real villains encountered by David Tennant during his slightly lengthier run as the Tenth Doctor at the start of series two. The prop itself only measures about 7″ x 4″ x 4″ but is made from cast metal, so its a little hefty for its size. It also comes with a polystone stand for display. It usually retails for $49, but if you order this one before November 7th, you can still save 50% and pick it up for only $24.50. Again, it’s no Dalek, but it’s still pretty cool and affordable to boot.
