1980s toys - Dapol
The 1980s were largely devoid of any Doctor Who toys until 1987 when Wales-based model makers Dapol launched their range of Doctor Who toys.

Dapol were particularly good at making inaccurate toys, and these included an infamous five-sided TARDIS console, a two-handed Davros and a green K9. I was lucky enough to have them all, and they’re shown here.

My collection includes the Seventh Doctor, the Fourth Doctor, grey K9, green K9, the TARDIS (actually I have 2) and the TARDIS console. The TARDIS opened out to form the interior walls, which was cool. Since I had two, I could make quite a sizable control room. I also had figures of Ace and Mel, several Cybermen, some Tetraps and some Ice Warriors. Dapol made many more figures than I had, including the Melkur and a Jon Pertwee figure.

The Dapol Daleks were exciting at the time, though in retrospect they’re slightly the wrong shape. I had a nasty habit of augmenting my model Daleks - this ranged from (badly) painting them entirely different colours (see silver ones below) to attaching mesh round the middle section, which eventually peeled off, leaving nasty superglue marks behind. Yes, I regretted it!

Citadel Miniatures
The 1980s also saw a wide range of lead figures from Citadel Miniatures. These came in various sizes, though I mostly had the smallest ones - see Daleks & Davros, bottom right. The images to the bottom left show what remains of my second “20 Daleks & 20 Cybermen” plastic kit.
