November 10th, 2012 by Marc Comments


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…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
