As some of you know I have been tracking down Dr Who minis for a friends 40th birthday. Eventually, thanks to the kindness of Thunderchicken over on LAF, I received this in the post:
Now my friend has bemoaned not buying this set in the 80's when it was first released so I thought - what better present to give him. Thunderchicken had warned me that some of the figures were assembled and painted so I was pleasantly surprised when I opened the box and found that less than half the figures were painted.
The painted ones went straight into Dettol and after a couple of days the paint just peeled off the Cybermen and Daleks. A little bit of time spent cleaning up mold lines, which weren't that bad, and the Cybermen were ready for painting. The Cybermen are one piece casts so all 18 in the box are identical. I forgot to take any photos at this stage so its straight onto the finished Cyberhorde.

All in all I'm quite happy with them. If I got another box of them I would probably spend a bit of time varying the poses a bit.
Next up: The Daleks
