    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.

    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.

    I hope this is released in the current full size figure and not only the new smaller versions :(

    I like the look a lot, they’re a lot sleeker than they were, a lot less like clodhopping robots. I like as well that’s they’ve got rid of the two elements in particular I always hated. First is the crease on the front of the leg which always made it look like they were wearing neatly ironed trousers, and the second is the heavy, yet curiously old man’s slipper like, feet. I appreciate they were supposed to be a bit Frankenstein’s monster’ish but for me they made them seem like Disney characters.

    I LOVE the new design...fantastic!

    Now is this a "space" cyberman or the Earth derived ones?

    I like the revised faceplate. Very old-school-looking without the sunken cheekbones look.

    They do look like they could creep up on you in the dark.

    You know, at first I didn't think that it was that much of an improvement, but the more I look at both side by side, I really like the new faces. The arms and legs are also much better.

    New design is better. I might have hoped for something a little more like what the 9th Doctor saw at the museum but anything is better than the Astro Boy Cybusman.

    I wonder if they're going to tweak the voices at all to accompany the new look. Sometimes I find the Cybermen difficult to understand because of the vocal modulation.

    Re: New Cybermen Design!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I somehow doubt that they'll remain 'last' of anything for long.

    Love the new look. My favorite is still the creepy cloth appearance but this is much better than what we had. They need new voices, too.
