Update...

...to the BBC's Doctor Who website, complete with pictures of the new Cybermen.

It's a really nice design, with elements of the very early cybermen...




...and most importantly without the blockiness of the 70's and 80's design.

Whoa.

I actually liked the blockier '80s design myself, but the redesign is definitely really cool.

The blocky cyberman is the first version I saw. I was OK with the design, then I saw earlier episodes.

The really early "ski mask" version was seriously primitive, but the transitional "keyhole face" (the third pic, from "The Wheel in Space") design is just timeless, even with the corrugated hose and wiffle-balls on the silver suit.

Good ol' Beeb. They could do more with stuff scavenged from the bin and a can of silver spray paint than I could ever hope to achieve. ;)

The boxy cybermen (early 70's on) were based on flight-suits spray-painted silver...
