I have had a leader dome fitted.
I shall now claim the board for my own.
Once someone else joins my side i will be able to use my catch phrase.

I have no fear of morons who cannot even spell "coup."

My followers have already pointed out your idiocy, young one.

Now shut up and get back to mucking out the underwater latrines.

It's no use.  I've already tried to install myself as leader of a military junta, but the Trout came back.

A bit of a Venezualan coup then...

See, there's your basic Cyberman design flaw...

No tear ducts.  Hence you can't get rid of anything that gets into yer eyes.

Say fer instance, silver shavings...

Next thing you know, on yer back, stiff as a board.

it's gold we dont like
: Re: Board Cou
: Dan Kelly 04 June, 2004, 10:18:24 PM
thats the one...

still, you think that a gold filter would have been included into one of the revisions you boys have made over the years.

I mean, if you can lose the silver wellies...

: Re: Board Cou
: longmanshort 04 June, 2004, 10:22:35 PM
It's the way that gold became something that their systems just didn't care for into some kind of garlic-subsitute ... that was just plain daft.

Anyway, I apologise for all of this - I drew Max a picture of him as a Cyber Leader and I rather think it's all gone to his head ...

Dat's where you're wrong!

The early CyberFaction-type Cyberman did have small, teardrop-like shapes moulded into the lower part of its eyesockets.  The reason for this is unknown, but it is said to be a telling reminder of their lost humanity.

David Banks says so, so it must be true!

(And it's nothing to do with extra holes drilled into the helmet to prevent the actor from suffocating.)

: longmanshort 04 June, 2004, 10:25:25 PM
Heh, well David Banks just thinks he is a Cyberman ...

Funny story - I once attacked David Banks while he was dressed as the Cyber Leader, causing ?200 of damage to his suit ... at the time I was inside a Dalek ... this all took place on the West-bound platform of Aylesbury train station ...

Y'know, it didn't sound quite so weird inside my head ...

Why, was he telling the story about the welsh cyberman who got the wasp trapped inside his head...?

: longmanshort 04 June, 2004, 10:30:37 PM
Sadly, no. I was 'in character' and got a bit carried away ...

That was about ten minutes after I scared a young child so bad he nearly jumped in front of the 14.30 to Milton Keynes ...

lms: i tried to use your sketch as an icon but it isn't very clear.

That's the most damning comment on my artistic skills yet ...

no, just as an icon, it's just too small
