Straw Dalek

This monumental 35′ tall straw Dalek was designed by Mike Harper and built with the help of a team of volunteers.  It took them around 700 man hours to build this colossal Doctor Who monument but not only does it look amazing, but the head and weapons move and it even has audio!  Apparently, it required around 6 tons of straw and 5 tons of steel to build.
An ice cream shop called Snugbury’s near Nantwich in Cheshire has apparently been doing giant straw builds like this every year for over a decade and with the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who just a couple months away, they decided to do a giant straw Dalek.
