Cyberman – “The Tomb of the Cybermen”
Series: Doctor Who Classics
Release Date: 2009
Comments: For the 2009 San Diego Comic-con Underground Toys offered 4 2-packs from their Doctor Who Classics line. These packs were the 1st Doctor with a Dalek or the 2nd Doctor with a Cyberman. Each of these packs came in your choice of color (pictured) or black and white (just like on TV!). This is the first (and only?) time that either of these Doctors have been made available.
The 4th and final figure I’ve got from these sets is the Cyberman from “The Tomb of the Cybermen”. This Cyberman figure is a rare occurrence where the figure looks better than its source material. The figure is well sculpted and I love the details on the figure. The tubing running down the arms and legs would have looked flat and boring had it just been sculpted on. Bravo to Character Options / Underground Toys for going the extra step. Unfortunately, the tubing restricts the available articulation, but it is just a small nit on an otherwise great figure. I am left wondering when Cybermen first appeared with 5 fingers on a hand vs. the three pronged hand this fellow sports.
