A typical Marx Dalek with box

Marx Toys made the original Doctor Who figures starting in 1963. The only toys they made were Daleks due to their outgoing individual popularity.

Dapol created a whole range of scaled down Louis Marx-style action figures, which they referred to as "friction" ones.

Despite their differing designs to the classic daleks, some of them were used onscreen in model shots of The Evil of the Daleks and Planet of the Daleks, effectively turning them into screen acurate design. They were also used to mould plaster duplicates with better colour matching in Planet of the Daleks, most of them being detroyed during the climax.[1]
