Talking Dalek Mechanism

The talking mechanism on these old robots worked liked an old record player! A stylus would be guided along the grooves of a spinning plastic disc and the recorded Dalek voice would play through the internal speaker.


Three versions were made in the 1970s by Palitoy: a grey version with blue hemispheres, a red version with black hemispheres and the rarest version, grey with black hemispheres.

My Toy Robot Collection // 2018 UPDATE

Here’s an updated video of the toy robots that are currently in my collection. I have a mixture of both old vintage robots as well as modern tin plate reproductions. This is mainly because original tin toy robots from the golden era go for ridiculously high amounts of money. Most ordinary folks, me included, just cannot justify spending that much! Early on in my collecting journey I came to the conclusion that I’d rather have several reproductions that work, rather than one rusty shelf queen that doesn’t. It’s the magic of these toy robots coming alive and moving that is the fun part!
