This has got to be the dorkiest Doctor Who toy ever. It’s a Dalek Voice Changer Helmet:
The Dalek Voice Changer Helmet is a tiered, circumferential cranial housing, joined with a glowing blue eye stalk. By donning the Dalek Helmet, you gain the ability to speak in the Dalek’s bloodless tone, play back pre-record Dalek phrases, or activate the Exterminator sound. Should the Daleks ever stage a full scale invasion, battering past the pitiable defenses of mankind, the Dalek Voice Changer Helmet might make the difference between survival and hideous annihilation.
I mean, just look at that pic of the kid wearing this $74.99, plus shipping and handling, Dalek helmet. Somehow, without the rest of the Dalek armor wrapped around him, it comes across as less than threatening. That hasn’t stopped the online store I linked to from being sold out of these badges of DW Geekdom. Nor does it stop me from (not so) secretly wishing I had one of my own. I mean I’ve been searching for years for a Windows based sound editor that comes with a ring modulation function so I could record my own voice and then distort it to sound like a Dalek. I’ve yet to find one. So a helmet that has one built-in already? Priceless.
