Ice Ice Baby!

This week in Doctor Who news the BBC released an official photo of the all new Ice Warriors from an upcoming episode titled The Cold War.

Just to refresh your memory, here's a look at one of the old school versions. They first appeared in 1967 in a Second Doctor episode titled, well, The Ice Warriors.

The Ice Warriors are an ancient race of reptilian being from Mars. Their final appearance on the show was in 1974 and fans have been clamoring for their return ever since.

So here's the new and updated Ice Warrior armor. I must say it looks pretty darn good! It's definitely an upgrade, but retains just enough of the old look to be recognizable (and keep the fanboys happy). It's sleek and menacing and would make an awesome action figure, if not for the fact that they're shrinking the line down to 3 3/4" high. I kind of miss the Lego person hands on the original though...

Judging by the shape of that torso armor it doesn't look like they're going to be doing too much sitting down. 

The Cold War episode will air sometime in April 2013.
