I hope they release it separately from the regenerations box set eventually. I already have most of them on there.

Yeah Emh, in some ways the 10th cybermen look like bloody morons with lanterns on their heads, but I like to think of them as looking horrific.

In fact a story I'd make if I were the head of the show is their origin, and I'd return the cloth faced cybs. I'd have some near human like cybermen unconverted who are against it all whom the doctor sides with, and then some still emotional cybermen. Their design would basically be a less advanced version of tenth planet's, maybe have some blood on their cloth faces left over from conversions and things like bronze wires sticking out, green hands, all sorts. Would make they cybermen scary again, something which I feel nightmare in silver failed to do. They're not scary, they're just powerful. Even the RTD cybermen were more scary, at least they were physically imposing.
Peter Davison Big Finish Audio Play Spare Parts (Complete with the Cloth-Faced voices). I believe I recall that Nightmare in Silver was originally going to be an Adaptation of Spare Parts?
I knew that, but audio's are not exactly canon.

That would have been much better. I think the return of cloth faces would also be beneficial, or even some more human parts remaining too!

The Tenth Planet comes out on its own in November.

As Sindatur has already pointed out, Spare Parts features cloth-faced and sing-song-voiced Cybermen, as does The Silver Turk (although it's only one Cyberman). That's part of the reason why I love both of those stories so much.

Actually, "Rise of the Cybermen"/"The Age of Steel" is a loose adaptation of Spare Parts. The audio is infinitely superior, of course.
Ah excellent, might grab a copy then.

Indeed rise is, but I still think a proper origin is in order. Never heard the audio.
