- "Upgrade complete."
- ―Cyberman in LEGO Dimensions
The Cyberman has a unique sculpted head piece with the iconic tear-drop eyes and mouth slit printed on the face and "handlebars" on the sides of its head. It has printed detail on the torso and legs. The entire figure is a shiny grey colour. The minifigure is based on the latest version on the Cybermen that first appeared in the Doctor Who episode "Nightmare in Silver". Its LEGO Dimensions base is styled off of the robotic details on its body.
The Cybermen first appeared in Doctor Who in a 1966 story featuring the First Doctor (William Hartnell) called 'The Tenth Planet'. The cybermen came from planet Mondas which was once Earth's twin; the planet drifted into the outer Solar System and became a very hostile environment. On Mondas, human lifespans began to deteriorate until Scientists began to replace limbs with cybernetic limbs and removed pain and emotion from human brains. They were henceforth known as Cybermen. There are two types of Cybermen: Mondasian Cybermen and the Cybermen produced in Pete's world by Cybus Industries.
The Cybermen are one of the most iconic Doctor Who villains ever introduced, second only to the Daleks and most Doctors have encountered them. They have also had several major makeovers over the years with most Doctors meeting a new version.
