Hey, they finally made a figure based on my favorite Cybermen. These are the ones who were partially responsible for killing one of the Doctor's companions. They also were the first ones to have a real modern design rather than wear giant air conditioning units on their chests. I've been hoping for this toy ever since they started making the new Doctor Who figures and the popularity of the show turned out to be so huge that there was a real possibility that they'd make Classic Who figures.
After seeing the Cybermen figures from last year, this is everything I ever hoped for. Unfortunately the Silver Nemesis Cybermen figures they're making are just repaints of this guy rather than reflecting the changes they made (which are admittedly few.) I might end up picking them up, but we'll see.
