Looks to be much better condition than the american one.

Wonder if it still works!

Off topic, should bonhams be allowed to sell half size daleks? I thought it was against copyright etc.

What exactly did it do when you put your coin in? Bounce up and down? Back and forth? Connect your brain to the Dalek battle computer?

These Daleks rotate slowly, while doing a kind of figure-of-eight gyration. The 'passenger' wiggles the gun and arm, and gradually get nauseous. :)

I notice the one in Bonhams now has this in the listing notes: "Sold for £1,300 plus Premium and tax "

Someone is selling parts from one they have reconditioned. This should probably be in ebay, but theres a lovely pic in the listing you might like to see.

Interesting.

There are two hemi styles on a coin-op. Most are flattish ones that were easily levered off, so have usually disappeared. Then down the front (and elsewhere) are full hemis (or deeper than hemis), which are almost impossible to get off. All the hemis were originally anodized aluminium. It looks to me like someone has done a really good spruce-up of the remaining ally parts of this beast, and it's nice to see one that also appears to still have naked red gel-coat - not paint (hard to tell, since this looks brighter than the original red). The neck was blue originally - but black looks good. :)

The end of the eye is a replacement, but also does the biz. It also appears to be plugged in, so I wonder if it works.
