Hayakawa Golden Dalek by Librarian-bot Hayakawa Golden Dalek by Librarian-bot
Project Infinity - Hayakawa Golden Dalek

Appointed as the supreme controller of Earth and its solar system, the Golden Dalek wielded absolutely authority over the conquered world and all who dwelt upon it. It was the highest ranking Dalek to have left Skaro, answerable only to the Supreme Council. As a result, it rarely left the confines of its control chamber and then, only under the most severe of circumstances. It was such an event - the potential destruction of a timeline in which the Daleks were triumphant - that led to it perishing in a massive explosion caused by anti-Dalek freedom fighters.

And having checked with the novel, it's definitely 'Golden', not just 'Gold'. Which I rather like.

The Daleks and Doctor Who belong to their respective owners. This Dalek was based on illustrations by Michiaki Sato for Hayakawa Books.

For some reason whenever I see the word "Hayakawa" whether aloud or in my head I sing it and do a little dance! Also, how do these daleks know who is talking, as they have no lights on their dome?

Not sure. The book descriptions do include the lights, but there's no evidence of them in the original Sato artwork. I guess it could be that their eyes flash or something...

I have recently found an animation of them on youtube and their eyes pulsate:[link]

Ah, yes, I knew I'd seen someone do that. Yeah, that's not a bad solution at all...

Looks like the progenitor from Victory of the Daleks

Someone mentioned that before. I'm fairly certain its coincidence...but you never know...

Ah, so this would be the Dalek kept in the cupboard along with the other three.
Given the size of these ones it wouldn't even need to be a full sized cupboard.
In gold this Dalek works about as well as the regular Dalek did in gold. Not very well. I think if I saw this Dalek in reality I'd laugh...and then kick it.

Hmm...I think with any kind of Dalek that might be taking your life in your hands!

As much as I love the BBC Daleks I have to admit that the Hayakwa Daleks are really starting to grow on me. I would love to see an animation of them in action.

I think I've seen someone do it before...not sure.

I might give it a go myself one day!
