Re: 7X12 Nightmare in Silver(Grading/Discussion)(SPOILERS)
It seemed like only that one Cyberman had the weird abilities, or at least it's the only one that used them, no?
I think it was, but since it was the first one of the new design, it was obviously meant to represent what they could all do.
And I do like the new abilities - albeit mainly cos they're ones I've often said before that they should have. (I've said many times since the days of rec.arts that if they're supposed to be so superior, they should be faster than a sprinter, more agile than Bruce Lee, etc - and that the Cybes themselves should logically be more like the Raston Warrior Robot)
That one was probably the Beta version.
Hopefully not a (Lancia) Beta Cyberman, or they won't have much to worry about, just wait for it to fall apart.
