Say what you will about RTD's alt universe Cybermen, personally I love them. I always enjoy a good parallel reality story and this one was no different. With that, I have had some recent additions to my prop collection, both by the brilliant Mooncrest Models
Left to right, as usual:
1) The TARDIS Power Cell
"It's nothing. It's tiny. One of those insignificant little power cells that no one ever bothers about, and it's clinging onto life, with one little ounce of reality tucked away inside. "
Well, let's be fair, this wasn't insignificant within the story and it certainly isn't in reality! Gary did an outstanding job on this piece. He really went to bat listening to requests and feedback from people like me and I can't thank him enough for his patience and willingness to listen. But really, I knew he had this all perfectly well in hand without us, his work is always excellent. For the ligths, Gary worked in a very simple but effective way to turn them on so that the prop can be displayed on or off and you'd never see a unsightly switch.
2) Cybus Earpods
Using a similar simple activation switch Gary was able to make the lights of the Earpods flash just as they did in the show. The work on this piece is beautifully detailed, right down to the flawless Cybus logo. So far though, they have yet to tell me a joke or make me report to the conversion stations, which, in fairness is probably a good thing.
3) A Cybus Cyberman Head
You've seen it in this album before but this collection wouldn't be complete with out it. However, for the sake of completion, this piece is the Character Options voice changer helmet that has been upgraded by my friend Jimmy (one of the Eleventh Doctor's you'll see in my pics) with a metalic finish repaint as well as some other fine details to turn this toy into a quality replica.
