Daleks! Run for your life!
The word "Dalek" has entered the Oxford English Dictionary and other major dictionaries; the Collins Dictionary defines it rather broadly as "any of a set of fictional robot-like creations that are aggressive, mobile, and produce rasping staccato speech" It is also a trademark, having first been registered by the BBC in 1964 to protect its lucrative range of Dalek merchandise, including these plastic toys from the 1960s.
The Dalek in the middle with a blue head is a clockwork Dalek from the 1960′s while the bright red one is a rare talking Dalek by Palitoy from 1975.
