If there is be a Cyberman in this wave then fingers crossed it is a Stealth one - think it is the only one I don’t have.
The Stealth Cyberman is the only one that is missing from the Classics on my shelf. I would love to see a rerelease. I think a nice 'Monsters' set would be the dark brown Sea Devil, Stealth Cyberman and Axon man.

Just thought- for the Power HOTD set, won't they have to resculpt the normal Chase Dalek sculpt to make it one row of sense globes at the back (if they're going for accuracy)?
Was that skinniboi in power? I thought it was just in evil. That would be a fun thing to have but I don't think they'd ever stretch to the new tooling needed for that
THAT one rowed Dalek indeed debuted in "Evil of the Daleks" and only ever appeared in "The War Games" thereafter.

Ah, sorry, my mistake. I was always under the impression that it was Power

Tbh I can’t see them doing the Wilkie- it was only in Evil briefly, and it’d need a whole new skirt.

If only CO could up its B&M budget to make this a reality:

“Phallic Friend and Foes of the Doctor” 3-pack with the Ogron deity, Alpha Centauri and Erato

I like these a lot. Only tweaks I'd make would be to swap the Underhenge Cyberman for that s6 Cyberman with preacher gun that's really hard to find and for the 12th Doctor set I'd make it an s10 finale set keeping the Mondasian Cyberman and adding the Cybus design with the blue chest unit and a costume variant of 12 from that ep too. (I do love that story though so maybe I'm biased :lol:)

And who knows, a 9th Doctor set may be feasible after all, depending on what Big Finish do with that story... :)

Still causes a ‘grrrrrrrrrrrr’ that they didn’t show the full evolution in The Doctor Falls.

It causes much more than a grrrrrrrr when they shoe horn the Cybusmen in.

On the one hand, budget. I was pleased enough that we had more than one "Tenth Planet" model costume.

On the other hand, this could've been easily papered over and satisfied most fans if, when the Doctor, (Cyber)Bill, Missy, and the Master stood at the lift, a "Wheel in Space" or "Earthshock" model had trundled out. One additional costume.

I suppose they could do a Nine set with whatever Cyberman story BF rolls out and a single "Revenge" head on a pedestal.

You could even do a Third Doctor set with a couple Cybies from "Five Doctors," or one Five Docs model and that one Cyberman we saw on the scope for a few seconds in "Carnival of Monsters." :)
