About this deal

You'll do yourself a huge favor if you wear under armor form fitting shirt and briefs/shorts underneath to help absorb the inevitable sweat you'll have while wearing this. Most purchases from business sellers are protected by the Consumer Contract Regulations 2013 which give you the right to cancel the purchase within 14 days after the day you receive the item. we used small masking tape piece marking where each went on the under side to apply when each tube was taken off) A good idea is to try and use grey velcro to hide it but black worked okay too. To help keep the buttons attached, I used a knife to create small slits in the fabric and slipped the back of the buttons in with the glue.

Fabric paint is another option here but I could never apply that evenly nor be satisfied the right shade of silver. For now though I bought 5 sets (5 feet per set) of Radio Shack 3/4" split wire covering - the black ribbed plastic tube one would use to centralize thier wires and make it look neat going from TV to speakers or whatnot. We also re-outfitted the chest and the shirt piece with hooks and loops to more easily (yet securely) fasten and unfasten the Chest Unit to the suit. All of the tape lines you can see in the early pictures are from inserting additional shunts of poster board for just this reason.This awesome mini display contains a section of Production-Used Mondasian Cyberman costume from the Doctor Falls. Once done I primed and sprayed the whole belt silver in 2 coats and put it on the suit using 4 velcro strips. We have a ridiculous amount of RCA cables around our apartment, most of which no longer serve any purpose.

Instead, I traced the edges of the tape with Sharpie, removed the flashing tape and then painted in the areas with black oil paints. Helmet tweak: re-enforced the mini-fans inside the helmet while replaceing the dark blue gel at the eyes (which fogged up last time) with a stretched piece of black nylon. I taped together a couple of magazine-sized backer boards into the proper size, and cut two pieces of (extremely) miscellaneous foam to the same size as the circuit boards. The back section was riveted on over the thin leather piece we crafted as the belt joint/velcro connector to make it look more uniform and hide the join.I bet I originally didn't copy them to here because the chest units were from Invasion, but on reflection saving the images for posterity seamed like a good idea. The head is constructed of fibreglass with thick foil around the eyes and mouth which are backed from the inside with mesh, the ear pieces are clear flexible tubing with solid perspex pieces at the top and bottom to form the curved shape and the interior of the helmet features a black elastic loop which was used to hold the torch in place. New Connectors: We took away 90% of the velcro, replaced most of the side tubes with a larger size and sewed on electronic wire "C" clamps to connect the tubes more securely (yet allow them to be removed when the suit has to come off! I twisted a length of wire onto each of twelve balls, then dipped them in paint and hung them inside a cage to dry (it kept the animals away from them).

Unsurprisingly none of the original costumes have survived having been quickly discarded for more practical suits and helmets for ‘The Moonbase’. The head is constructed of fibreglass with thick foil around the eyes and mouth which are backed from the inside with mesh, the ear pieces are clear flexible tubing with solid perspex pieces at the top and bottom to form the curved shape and the interior of the helmet features a black elastic loop which was used to hold the torch in place. I thought I'd need some glue to help hold it on but to be honest the plastic was pretty strong and it held fine on it's own. Do they actually say 1967, as they are actually from a Radio Times shoot in 1970, the Cyberman has an Invasion chest unit held on with string.

This Cyberman Controller helmet was used in the 1967 serial The Tomb of the Cybermen starring Patrick Troughton as The Doctor and represents one of two helmets made the story which introduces the Cyberman Controller portrayed by Michael Kilgarriff.
