Nice little figure of K9 from Doctor Who, molded in metallic flake blue plastic. Voice chip has one sample of "affirmative master" which is activated by the depressing the control panel portion on his back and is powered by three LR 41 batteries. When voice chip is activated, the light for his eyes comes on. There are no moving parts other than the four wheels on the bottom. Tail must be pushed into the figure and stays fixed with two prongs and is quite unmovable after assembly. Nice for the price and this is standard with all these "kits" of similar size. This one comes as "deluxe mega kit," probably due to the voice chip. Small accompanying book has remark on the last page of being assembled with hand craft methods and Smith-sewn for durability. Pages are satin gloss and a slight textured front and back covers.
Got this as a gift for my dad for Christmas one year. He LOVED it! K-9 was one of his favorite characters in the show, and he keeps this little guy on his computer desk. You have to clip in the tail for the "put together" part, but he does have a button on him for sound effect/phrase (not sure which). Saw a youtube vid of someone who purchased this before deciding to get it. Took a little bit to get to my dad, but that's understandable considering where it came from when I ordered it. Overall, very happy.
The K-9 figure has a fair amount of detail. The sound clip seems to come from John Leeson, and not an imitation voiceover, which is nice. And I love the glowing red eye.
The booklet is surprisingly informative, and provides a comprehensive history on the exploits of K-9 (both the original and his various replicates/successors) from Doctor Who, K-9 & Company, and The Sarah Jane Adventures.
I'm impressed by the overall quality of the package, and think it's a great buy for the price.
