I like the slimmer limbs, but other than that I'm agnostic on the changes. Seems more like a lateral move, exchanging one cool design for another, rather than any improvement. But then I was always fine with the Cybus designs, so I'm not excited by new costumes.

So here's a thought: should they bring back Earthshock style attitude for the Cybermen?

What does that even mean? Being emotional even though they're not supposed to have emotions? Standing around in starship corridors having a chat?

Actually, I just want to hear the Cyberleader declare "Excellent!" every two minutes.

Certainly in a practical sense- the one on the right has his thigh-pieces on backwards...

Even Cybermen sometimes have trouble with shy bladder.

I like the new look, don't get me wrong. But they just seem, I dunno, naked somehow. Maybe they just need a more complex chest units, or big-ass guns or something.

And the fist clench. Don't forget that.

Speaking for myself, I've always thought the head mounted weapons in Revenge were the best. Some folks are wondering if the chest piece is a weapon. Hmmm, I dunno - that seems a little too Iron Man for me.

Cybermen don't need new looks, they need new plots and agenda besides upgrading humans.

I like the new look. I think it's pretty groovy.

I was thinking a comparison shot might be useful.

Wow, the previous design looks clunkier than ever now.

I would have preferred the new ones to be a bit taller and leaner looking, but still, it's a pretty big improvement, I think. And the more I look at it, the more I love it.
