I always found the original cybermen design (the very first from the tenth planet) to be the worst iniration, I can understand they were working with what at they had at the time it was there first cybermen, but it looks kinda laughable as it comes off as a guy wearing cloth, you can see a human mouth beneath the clothand even see the hands look very human still.

That's sort of the point.
The reason they look human is because they are, for the most part, still human, which is what makes them so disturbing to so many people... they're creepy than NuWho's big, stompy toy robots, you have to admit.

Awesome. All incarnations of the Cybermen race in one excellent work of ilustration. The visuals sure capture the likeness of the IDW Publishing "Doctor Who" comic covers well.

You can see the tweaks getting slighter and slighter, and then the Cybusmen! :D I actually like the cybusmen! It seems like a great addition to the group. Although, I think they're overdue for a new redesign. Preferably, not by the whomever made the humpbacked Power Ranger Daleks ^^;

I far prefer the new Cybermen in design but there was something more joyous about watching some of the old ones and they weren't going 'deleeeete' all the time.

I really liked the current Cybermen in the recent christmas episode. I want the Cyberking as a figure though probably not to correct scale to the others as it would likely not fit in my home.

I personally like the 'Moonbase'/'Tomb of the Cybermen' version. It was simple in it's overall design, and very cool. I can't understand why they went and changed it...
Though I'm probably biased, considering the only cyber stories I've seen are 'Tomb', 'Revenge', 'Earthshock', 'Attack', 'Silver Nemesis', 'Rise'/'Age of Steel', 'Army'/'Doomsday'. And I don't like how the Daleks are being used more frequently than the Cybermen in the new series... for two monsters that are supposed to be on equal footing, the Daleks seem to be seeing the screens more often...

:iconjlfletch:
jlfletch Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2008
I agree.
They should ease off the Daleks a little, because, like the Borg in Voyager, they loose their menace if you see them too much.

awesome picture!!! I personally think the creepest were the "Tenth Planet" Cybermen..I really wish we had seen more of them (other then their audio apperence in Spare Parts). as for RTD's Cybermen...if he's going to keep using them....I'm wondering how he's going to keep giving reasons for them coming back...rather then just use the telosian cybermen which already exist somewhere out there (and waiting, given the time in which the present stories take place)

wearing RTD Cybermen. Damn usurpers!!

True.
I really loved the Earthshock Cybermen, purely because of
the fact their involvement in the story was a secret right up until the end of part one. As a twelve year old, it was the event of the century in my school the next day.
They couldn't do that now unfortunately
