Well, it's nice to know there are some Doctor Who fans still out there...
I don't think the Cybermen used nanomachines really, it was sort of more of
a replacement of limbs and stuff(Notice the Early Cybermen still have some
human parts).
Getting a little OT on Doctor Who,I'd really like to see a Japanese take on
the Daleks or Cybermen...The Dalek i think might end up looking like a Zaku
tank mixed with the Zeong(With a claw or something replacing the 'plunger
hand') the cybermen would probably be given a lighter and less-stiff
appearence. Although their 80s redesign was pretty cool, it would have been
interesting to see what a higher budget or being animated could do for them.
Sadly, we may never know..
 Also, does anybody think that the Gundam and the Zakus look a little like
the Cybermen and Daleks?

Interesting stuff. Scary too in some ways. Hmmm, might not be too long
before stuff like the Borg or the Cybermen become real possibilities.
