New Series Cybermen Customs Collection Tour – Damaged Cybermen Customs

Welcome to a slightly different Customs Collection Tour, as this time we will be taking a look through my collection of custom-made Damaged Cybermen. All customs are made by me unless stated otherwise in the description.

Damaged Cyber-Leader Custom Figure:

The first in my series of Custom Cybermen is a damaged Cybus Cyber-Leader, who has lost an arm and with it, his blaster. This started out as a destroyed Cyberman figure, with the legs swapped out with those of a Series 6 Damaged Cyberman figure. The detailing was done with black and brown permanent markers and the damage to the eye was done with a pair of pliers and finalised with black and grey pens.

Burnt Cyberman Custom Figure:

This Cyberman figure has been altered to appear burnt and scratched, using the arms and chestpiece of a Pandorica Guard Cyberman Figure and the rest of the parts were sourced from various Series 6 Damaged Cybermen. Oddly enough, due to the nature of the Pandorica Guard figure, the blaster is on the left hand instead of the right, as it is in the episode. I used blue paint drybrushed into the gaps of the Pandorica guard to give the impression that electric parts lie within.

Partially Repaired Cyberman Custom Figure 1:

This Cyberman figure is a repainted version of a Series 6 Damaged Cyberman to give more of an impression that this Cyberman has attempted to form rudimentary repairs on himself via salvaged parts of other Cybermen. The panels on his chest have been repainted silver with a grey finish to look newer than the rest of his body, and the internal wiring on his arm has been coloured blue and purple with permanent marker.

Partially Repaired Cyberman Custom Figure 2:

Like the figure above, this Cyberman has also been repainted to give it more of a scavenger look, although this particular Cyberman’s repairs are much more crude. The internal wiring on his chest has been painted over to stand out more, and further damage has been added to his chest panel section and head. The panels on the legs have been repainted silver to give the impression that this Cyberman has covered up blast damage to his legs with crudely bent pieces of steel.

Bonus – Legless ‘Zombie’ Cyberman Custom Figure:

This Cyberman figure uses the head of a Pandorica Guard, the body of a Series 6 Damaged Cyberman and the legs (or lack thereof) of a Destroyed Cyberman figure. I added further paint applications to the legs and torso to give the impression that this Cyberman is desperately crawling towards its next victim, attempting to kill or upgrade even in its critically damaged state.

So there is my collection of damaged Cybermen. Since I’m branching out from Daleks you can expect more varied Customs Collection Tours in the future, until then, I hope you enjoyed.
