How about salt and pepper shakers that are shaped like daleks?

@theoneill555: that's exactly what i was looking for, and what I meant by 'these could be done better' - unfortunately these are the only ones i could find.

I've seen dalek shaped salt and pepper shakers on ebay, but they're really horrible quality.

I thought I saw some really good Dalek salt and pepper shakers on ebay, last month. I think they were made of pewter, even, but they were super expensive (like more than $100).

Just found them and they're totally freaking awesome, but the bidding also starts at $139 (buy it now - $179). http://cgi.ebay.com/Pewter-DALEK-salt-and-pepper-shakers-DR-RARE-/290464672505?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0

Here's some more that are also pewter and also $179, but they're not as nice as the ones up for auction on ebay.

@robinbobcat: I have a feeling my wife would kill me if I got these, as there's no way I could resist the urge to say that every single time I seasoned my food.

I swear I remember seeing a pair somewhere, one was the gold color, one was the black. I can't find them now though.

@robinbobcat: Came here to say this. I see it's taken care of. Carry on.

@robinbobcat: Nice! +1 to rep.

@dazoneranger: Great find. Those are hella cool, but I think the wife would have my guts if I bid/purchased those.

@joedeth: She doesn't have to know how much they cost and she'd never suspect salt and pepper shakers would ever cost that much, either.

I finally decided to make my own Dalek salt and pepper shakers for my wife. I bought a 3 pack of cast metal Daleks from Corgi and did a few alterations. I bought the grey/white/red set. First, remove the roller base-plates. Second, drill 5 holes in the middle space in the Dalek's neck ring with a 5/64 bit. Don't drill the front three sections, just the other 5. I used a Dremmel tool with a small grinding stone to clean up the holes inside the Dalek. Wash it well. Hold your finger around the neck to block the salt and fill the Dalek. Use a piece of Ziplock bag as a gasket between the Dalek and baseplate. Replace the baseplate and screw and trim the excess bag off with an X-acto knife. The Dalek works perfectly and the salt/pepper stays in pace until needed. I put seasoned salt in the red one. All three are guarding my dining room table as we speak. Total cost was about $45 US.
