    Yes, now you too can have your own full size Dalek! Being touted as the ultimate Dalek toy, this new Dalek, an officially licensed replica standing 5'5" tall won't be ready until April, but it has not stopped fans from flooding the This Planet Earth company with £500 deposits for the Daleks that are selling for £2,000 ($3,532). An option for it to scream "exterminate" and have working lights will cost you an extra £500.

    "Parts have been painstakingly sourced and meticulous work has been done to produce a stunning replica," a spokesperson for the company stated.

    Ian Clarke, Managing Director commented, "I think the model is the ultimate toy, although it's actually a big ornament."

    "It's desirable because itís such a big thing. It's really impressive."

    "We have received countless deposits. People just want to say they own a Dalek."
