    Just as we predicted back in March.



    I wonder if we'll see those big chompers under the flap at the front, it looks like it may be a seperate piece. I hope the scale is correct too, for 16.99 it's seems very reasonably priced if it is 1:1. Anyway, a solid base for the RPF to hack into something great I think

    I want one of those for sure!!! Let's hope the scale is right..

    To be honest, I don't think it is correct scale wise and I don't think its even the right shape.

    The TV version is very much shoe shaped, if you like, at the front. The toy seems a bit more rounded...?

    What WOULD you guys estimate to be the "right" measurements, anyways?

    Didn't the original have lit red/pink pannels on its tail, not red LEDs?

    I think at its widest point it is 5", its full length being 9 to 10"

    As for the LEDs, I need to look again...

    Just came here to post this:



    The DW Facebook page posted it. It's taken from this weeks Doctor Who Adventures magazine. This was the highest resolution I could find. It shows a nice view of each version

    As far as the toy goes, it's quite nice. I'll probably get one at some point. Especially if the mouth plate removes.

    Huh, those pictures make the length of the body look more "squished" than they seem on TV. Hmm. Thank you for posting, though! That's some wonderful reference.

    I've started a rough sculpt of them, I only hope the toy version is not as awesome, I'd hate to scrap this like I did my Adipose.

    Mine will definitely have a removable/swappable insert for the mouth, though it will be a static display at first.

    Hey rollerboi, I look forward to what you end up producing. One of these days, I'll finish a prop I start!

    I've gathered some more reference shots of the 3 different cybermats that were produced for the show (despite that article only mentioning 2!) from the Confidential episode and will upload here for people's reference.

    Thanks for the heads up on the reference shots, and brill news about the screengrabs David, that's saved me the job! Have ordered two of the toys so will see how they turn out before deciding on whether to sculpt a new one or just modify one.

    My cybermat arrived this morning and thought I'd post some pictures. This is a great little toy, that scuttles around the floor wagging it's tail. It's way too small to be modified into a reasonably prop replica. What a shame.

    has anyone tried to make the original Cybermats? I would LOVE to have one of them scooting about... I do have the Bump and Go verison also but like many have already mentioned it is a lot smaller than its TV big brother.... I did write a small review on the Bump and Go verison on my DW Blog: My Untempered Schism: Attack of the Cybermats
