[ClickPress, Tue May 03 2005] Following the eagerly anticipated return of the Daleks to the BBC hit series Dr Who on Saturday 30 April 2005, online gadget retailer GadgetWizard.com experienced unprecedented customer demand for its genuine BBC licensed Remote Control Dalek over the bank holiday weekend.
Within minutes of the Dr Who 'Daleks' episode ending on Saturday night, GadgetWizard.coms' sales for the Remote Control Dalek, which looks set to be one of the must-have toys of the year, had reached an all new high. This trend continued throughout the bank holiday weekend, far exceeding the expectations of Steve Owen, GadgetWizards' Managing Director.
"The Remote Control Dalek consistently features in our top sellers list, but the number of purchases over the weekend for this product was way beyond are expectations", he explained. "We had predicted that we might see a surge in demand after the Dr Who Daleks episode and are delighted to have been able to meet all our customers' orders", he added. "GadgetWizard.com does still have a few Daleks left in stock, but we are selling out fast."
The scale reproduction Remote Control Dalek, priced £59.99, is available in black or silver and has fully functioning radio control movement (left, right, forward and reverse), a powered rotating head with flashing lights, and authentic Dalek voice commands including the infamous 'exterminate exterminate'. It is available from GadgetWizard at http://www.gadgetwizard.com.
