If you are in the UK the set is available from the link below, US sources should follow soon.

Attack of the Cybermen, 6th Doctor and Stealth cyberman set.

As far as releases for Cybermen figures from character options, this year has really been a storm. With the Earthshock Cyberman at the beginning of the year, to the recently released Silver nemesis twin pack of Cyber lieutenant and Cyber Leader. To the Pre-orderable Revenge of the cybermen set due in November. It left me puzzling what could Character Options/Underground Toys bring out next Cybermen wise. Well that wish list has been cut down even further with this Double pack of the 6th Doctor and Cyber Scout. For me this is a double goal As I collec t 6th Doctors and Oh boy DO I COLLECT CYBERMEN! I personally would have made this set the Cyber Controller and Cyber Scout from attack of the Cybermen, but due to the silly prices going for the Standard 6th Doctor I am more than happy about the nature of this set. Since the original 6th Doctor release was brought out in a blister pack with a singular Part of the K1 robot from Robot to collect, trying to get hold of this figure for a "Reasonable Price" has been an absolute Nightmare. As to the cyberscout, it saves me time and effort of trying to customise an Earthshock cyberman to look like a cyberscout.

The 11 Doctors All Together

All 11 Doctors together at one time is something to make any fans hearts race faster.

this time though it's because they are being released as an 11 figure boxed set for the first time.  The set may become one of the most sought after items this year after the 11th Doctor's sonic screwdriver. Mainly by hardcore fans and some not so hardcore fans, 1st big point being that obviously Paul McGann's 8th Doctor is part of the set, and Tom Baker's 4th Doctor is in his season 15 garb.
