This is how LEGO® Cybermen could look like, thanks to the new “Pirates of the Caribbean” Sets.
About this creation
I usually don’t post just customised minifigs, but in this case, I liked the idea so much that I decided to go without a vig.
If you like this project, please vote for it on cuusoo .
The PotC part I’m talking about is the new bucket handle which I found in the Whitecap Bay set. Finally the perfect part to build a cyberman. It doesn’t really stick to the head, but it’s okay if you use it in a vig or dio.
The next problem is the colour; it comes in dark tan, but for a cyberman we need it in bley, preferable light bley. So in case some really cool LEGO® employee reads this post [right, Mark Stafford? ;o)], I hope he’ll think about it.
Oh and in this case, a light bley sumo hairpiece would be great for a Miss Marple MOC and a black bowler (like the one from the clown in minifig series 5) for an Avengers MOC.
One more word about the cybermen in my picture. Those are digital decals on their heads and torsi and they definitely need more work.

Who needs the right colour if you photoshop them so well?! I really have to watch more DW episodes. This looks pretty solid. Can't wait to see a vig with some more cybermen. But then you need to get your hand on some more handles.
You were absolutely right my friend, they look great. If only I could afford big PotC sets. OR as you point out, some really cool Lego employee, who also happens to be a fan of the Doctor (Mr. Stafford, we ARE looking at you sir) could include some light bley bucket handles in a future set? Please? And great call on a black bowler hat, but I was thinking more Oddjob than Steed.

Brilliant! You know, you could secure it if you used a cut-down Brickarms Monopod, and attached the bottom to the head stud and had it holding the handle's grasping part. Just a suggestion...
