Despite all the efforts being made to keep the new look of the Cybermen a secret, photos have leaked. Which they will do when they are filmed in areas full of, em, tourists.
Yes, the new look of the Cybermen has been revealed as so many things are these days, by a bunch of leaked pics online, albeit very clear and hi-res ones.
The new look cybermeanies were snapped during filming at Castell Coch, on 7th November 2012, as part of Neil Gaiman’s episode “The Last Cybermen”.
There are more pics at HealthyTowers and they can be found here
Personally I like the new sleeker look – look at the detail in those hands and arms (below) – as they retain the menacing militaristic look of the new generation Cybermen while getting rid of that slow-moving, clunky appearance. These guys look like they could chase you as well as turn you into a metal monster. Also loving that the Cybus Industries logo is gone from the chest and that the handlebars and teardrops have been retained. Overall, I’d say this is a winner of a new design and I can’t wait to see them in action…
