Doctor Who: Bump & Go Cybermats

Doctor Who Bump and Go Cybermats!

Cybermats have always been a very almost but no cigar affair when it comes to merchandise; from their barely working origins in Tomb of the Cybermen to the latest appearance giving literal teeth to a rather depleted Cyberman attack in Closing Time, these cybernetic woodlice have always been one bright idea away from a toy line.

Now, with technology having caught up with the potential behind such heady ideas as battery-powered motorisation, can we now have full working Cybermats that don’t need backwards film, bits of wire or good old-fashioned Ed Wood style ‘octopus tentacle attack’ style flailing to give them life.

Doctor Who: Bump and Go Cybermat is an electronic patrolling replica of the metallic bitey ones which, well, bumps into things and changes direction as it does so… like it says on the tin.

Like the R/C Daleks before it, the joy in owning one is in owning two and watching gnashing beasts crash into each other and you many precious possessions.

Now if only they could vacuum as well while they run around the place then they would cover all the bases for a practical yet nerdy Christmas present.

Doctor Who: Bump & Go Cybermats are available to pre-order from Forbidden Planet for £14.99 and will be bumping and going around the Forbidden Planet warehouse from 16th October 2011.



About

Everyone has a favourite Doctor and mine - just for his honesty, his fairness and his ability to not notice the Master's awful, awful disguises/anagrams (Sir Gilles Estram!?!) - has to be the Fifth Doctor, Peter Davison. The stories didn’t serve him as well as his acting served those stories.
