Cybermen, Doctor Who's second favourite alien menace,
have never really been dealt a fair hand in the merchandising
stakes. The only toy previously available - back when Tom Baker
was the Doctor - had a nose, so no marks there. However, things
have finally been put right and at last fans of the half human,
half machine, 100% logical inhabitants of the planet Mondas
have something to get [un]emotional about.
on the Imagineering design which first appeared in Earthshock,
Product Enterprises has delivered yet another first class
product which combines excellent attention to detail with
some sensible articulation and the ever-popular 'authentic
phrases' which combine to really bring the figurine to life.
Personally, I would have prefered a Tomb/Moonbase Cyberman
[it's an age thing] but it would be churlish to quibble when
faced with such a wonderful piece of work.
Above all else, what this action figure proves is that British

have taken the quality mantra to heart.
Yet again, the company has delivered a first class product
at a good price. Excellent... as a certain Cyberleader might
