#52: Doctor Who Cyber Leader (The Next Doctor)

Jumping ahead 40 years from yesterday's "The Invasion" Cyberman, we come to the Cyber Leader from 2008's "The Next Doctor". For their 2006 redesign, the Cybermen took on an appearance more of a guy in armor than the previous versions which looked more like a guy in a silver wetsuit. If you didn't know better, you might think they were merely robots. In fact, this version of the Cybermen is actually from an alternate dimension, so the Cybermen proper have yet to show up since the relaunch of the series. The Cyber Leader is differentiated from the standard Cyberman by the black markings on its head, as well as clear dome which shows its brain beneath. Since I already have the regular Cyberman, I'm glad that the version in this wave was a variation rather than the same thing.
