I personally love political humor. What do you guys think? I thought about changing the tag line to "Indoctrinate! Legislate! Chief of State!" Any suggestions?

    First off, welcome to the forum. I'm just a regular user, not paid by the company, semi-regular contributor, occasional design sender.

    I'm a HUGE Whovian, so let's start with the Dalek. The vents are new paradigm Dalek but the eye-stalk is old school Dalek. The laser is old-school too. The arm is old because it doesn't have the extender ripples on the length.

    Here's one of the new boys.

    I personally like more going on with a design. Even if the suction arm was lifted 15, 20 degrees so you could see the gun details, or if the font was instantly Whovian in nature. I once said something like "I could duplicate it in GIMP in under 30 minutes" as a reason I would move on to the next design, and this is one. Sorry.

    Don't think of it as, "how much money would I make if TeeFury printed my design?", because they must receive hundreds of submissions a week. They've never picked one of mine, and I can spend hours fiddling with a design (this Bad Wolf graffiti monochrome thing, for example).

    Think of it more as "TeeFury wants to make the most on any day, how can I give them a design they can't resist?" Because that seems to be the case. They get some obscenely good designs.

    People look for originality. Maddox (of The Best Page In The Universe) had this years ago, based on the American political symbols...

    Sorry that it's a harsh critique.

    I personally like this design and the idea. Jackpot777, I don't really think it matters that this doesn't look EXACTLY like a dalek. People will know what it is. At least the artist did it himself instead of tracing something.

    It looks like a Dalek (eyestalk, plunger, four globes going down the bottom half), no two ways about it.

    What's funny is: the new paradigm (translation: we need to make the Daleks taller because Matt Smith and Karen Gillam are TALL!) borrows the gentral section from early 1960s Daleks.
