Quote from: davidnagel on Jul 27, 2017, 12:58 amOnly notable of interest is the back two buttons that Matt tells me are used to switch the dog on, saves opening the side door to do it instead!
Quote from: davidnagel on Jul 27, 2017, 12:58 amAnd the back flap, which I was told was used/seen flapped open in a story - but this eludes me, can anyone advise?
Quote from: davidnagel on Jul 27, 2017, 01:06 amInterestingly, looking back through the thread, when the prop appeared in the show, the nose was hollow.
Quote from: davidnagel on Jul 27, 2017, 01:06 amPresent day, the nose is filled in. I wondered when that happened?
Quote from: davidnagel on Jul 27, 2017, 01:06 amThose two pictures side by side even show that the nose looks different completely and from there, the whole bottom half of the head.
Quote from: davidnagel on Jul 27, 2017, 08:41 amI want to say the back access panel/flap was used in Armageddon Factor as I seem to recall such a thing occurring as the miniaturised main cast walked out of him?

Quote from: galacticprobe on Jul 27, 2017, 05:16 amInteresting place to put those. I wonder why they didn't hook those on/off switches to one of the buttons on his control panel up top. Then that panel would have actually done something.
Quote from: fivefingeredstyre on Jul 27, 2017, 01:16 pmThe panel Buttons are not practical - they are just lights, rather than switches.
Quote from: davidnagel on Jul 27, 2017, 08:41 amDino, you're mixing up the School Reunion prop (rebuild by Mike Tucker in 2006) and this prop, the original 70s prop. I'm talking about this prop in all instances where its only appearances post 2006 are its brief reappearance at end of "School Reunion" and all the Sarah Jane Adventures series.

K9's Head and Control Panel ϺDOCTOR WHO: THE LEISURE HIVE (TV SERIES, 1980)K9's head and control panel from "The Leisure Hive", the first serial in the 18th season of sci-fi TV series Doctor Who. This head is believed to be one of only two such pieces created for the Tom Baker serials. It was set up for pyrotechnic purposes for the Brighton beach scenes at the beginning of the first episode with the addition of an opening hatch, and screen matches the head seen in that episode. Romana (Lalla Ward) threw a ball into the sea for K9 to fetch, as the Fourth Doctor (Tom Baker) slept on a deckchair. The water caused the robotic dog to explode and his circuits became severely damaged.Constructed from fibreglass, the head consists of moulded angular sections finished to replicate blue steel. A coiled neck is attached underneath and an elongated nose creates a canine-like shape. Adhered to the front is a red acrylic grill, and a laser-gun barrel is housed within the tip of the robot's nose. A hatch which features an incorporated magnet is located on the top of the head, with two holes present where the ears were once attached. Non-functional circuit boards painted in faux silver are fitted to the interior. The control panel is made mainly from resin with wooden side sections, finished in the same metallic blue as the head. The top half of the panel curves upwards slightly and displays two orange rectangular screens. Eleven smaller blue, red, green and orange acrylic buttons adorn the piece.The lot displays signs of production use and age, including dirt remnants, scratches, discolouration and minor wear. Exposed glue is present on the back of the neck and the black vinyl around the bottom of the neck has begun to peel away. Over time some components have gone missing, including the ears, a circular piece on the grill and a button on the control panel. The paint has chipped away on some parts of both items, revealing the materials underneath. Dimensions (head): 14.5 cm x 40 cm x 26.5 cm (5 ¾" x 15 ¾" x 10 ½"); (panel): 21 cm x 15 cm x 7.5 cm (8 ¼" x 6" x 3")Estimate: £15,000 - 20,000131PROPSTORE.COM | 30TH SEPT & 1STOCT 2019 130ENTERTAINMENT MEMORABILIA LIVE AUCTION - DAY 1244.

Dalek Genesis Ark †ΔDOCTOR WHO (TV SERIES, 2005 -)The Dalek Genesis Ark from the "Army of Ghosts" and "Doomsday" episodes of the revived BBC sci-fi series Doctor Who. The Genesis Ark was a Time Lord prison ship that, similar to the T.A.R.D.I.S., is bigger on the inside. It contained millions of Daleks, imprisoned after the Time War. After the Ark was seeneen briefly at the end of "Army of Ghosts", Mickey (Noel Clarke) accidentally touched it during the events of "Doomsday", resulting in the device activating and the Daleks pouring out. Based on the classic Dalek design, the Ark has a fibreglass shell with medium density fibreboard (MDF) struts inside for support. There are an array of small acrylic lights on the outside of the shell, as well as larger domed lights. Three sets of grates decorate each side, through which dry ice would have seeped out during shooting.A removable panel at the back of the Ark reveals a hollow interior containing wires and cables for the lights on the exterior of the body, with enough space for a person to operate the effects. A small handwritten note in ink on a piece of wood inside the Ark reads, "Lou Was Ere 05". The Ark has some wear from production use and age. There is scuffing and scratching on the outside of the Ark and small patches where the paintwork has been damaged. Loose tape and piping hang down inside.
