Special Feature – Cybermen Figures

With the addition of our extensive Cybermen section to the main site we thought we would take a look at some of the Cybermen merchandise, in particular figures that have been made available over the years.

How it all began – well not quite. The first Cyberman figure was manufactured by Dennis Fisher (Mego) and is now extremely rare. We have yet to find one to add to our collection but you can see it Here at Mego Museum.

The first TV appearance of the Cybermen was in the 10th Planet with Characters superb figure shown below.

Product Enterprise produced various talking Cybermen including an all over matt silver finish, a Chrome effect Cyberman and Cyberleader and a Stealth Cyberman.

The two Dapol Cybermen. Although not as accurate as today’s figures many people still collect Dapol. Some of their later figures had no articulation like the Cyberman shown below (right). None the less this was probably one of the best Figures they produced.

Sixteen 12 produce two 12″ statues, the Cyberman and Cyberleader from Revenge of The Cybermen. Each statue is cast in high quality polystone material and were sculpted by renowned artists Sarah Aplin and Andrew Teal

Characters first venture into classic Cybermen was the Build A Figure Age of Steel Set which included Tomb, Invasion and 10th Planet versions with parts to build the Cybercontroller from Tomb of the Cybermen. The Earthshock Cybermen was included with Characters classic wave 2 but since then all classic figures have been commissioned by Underground Toys.

All the Classic Cybermen so far… Click the Image for a spectacular large version.

The Tescos 3 figure set was amazingly sold off in some stores for just a few pounds and is now quite sort after.

Underground Toys. Many variation of Cybermen are now available thanks to the commitment the classic series by Underground Toys. Shown below are just 2 sets, The Silver Nemesis set and 6th Doctor with Stealth Cyberman

Scificollector produced a superb 5″ figure with stand which is shown below (centre) along with the Cards Inc bust, Corgi, Micro universe, Time squad, keyring and Money box versions.

The two that got away?
(three if you count the Cybershades). The Wheel in space and Cybercontroller from Attack of the Cybermen – will we see them one day? (in case you hadn’t realised the images below are a mock of existing figures and screenshots )

And finally – Still to come, the superb Titan Maxi Bust and Character Building figure – but we have a feeling it wont stop there…

    I really hope that they release an Attack of the Cybermen version of the Cyber Controller although I hope they don’t make him look fat like the original Cyber Controller looked like in the broadcast. The Wheel in Space Cybermen would also be cool to see.

    I quite liked the “The Five Doctors” Cybers. CO should make an adventure games Cyberman figure. Or at least a CB.

      Poor CB Cyberman. It looks as if it’s about to be blown apart by the Maxi Bust Cyberman’s gun, which is pointing straight at him!

    I have compared the “12″ Cyber leader and Controller to the drones. The drones were known for having wacky eyes, yet Character appeared to have fixed the eyes problem with the Leader and Controller. Too bad they stopped the “12″ figures line before they could get better with them.

    So if you want “12″ Cybermen to add to your collection, be sure to get the Leader or Controller.

    I have come to the conclusion that most modern doctor who guns are slightly modified NERF guns, River had a Nitefinder, the big black Cyber guns from Doomsday and the Pandorica Opens are Longshots.
    If I find anymore I will update this
