That's assuming Platinum isn't being sold with Tin in an over-sized slot.

Tin's a little small to take up a slot himself.

On MattyCollector they already posted that Tin is Platinum's accessory (so Tin is not a slot all his own). That doesn't mean that this isn't going to be an oversized figure (I was going to include that caveat when I was writing the breakdown). It certainly is possible. So far all of the sites I have been following have listed Rocket Red as the only oversized figure shown at Toy Fair. Back in January Scott defined the oversized figures as being CNC-sized or a regular sized figure with an oversized accessory like Metron's chair.

From Jan. 17th Ask Matty:

All of the oversized slots will be Collect and Connect size figures (or figures with large accessories like Metron).


I look at Tin like the K-Mart exclusive BatMite (Golden Age Batman was still the same price as the rest of the Batman Legacy figures). Tin seems a little small to me to be considered in the same league as Metron's chair. However with Matty you never know!

Heheh, true enough.

Either way, I'm glad they're not taking up two slots. I like the Metal Men, but I'd prefer a nice mix of figures.

I was already happy with Jay and Atrocitus.
Metron to me is one of those "need him to make the collection look complete" but I'm not too excited.
McCulloch looks great, as does Black Mask.
I'm trying to decide if I really want a second Starman or not to display both heads.
I love the Rocket Red, but then I would have been happy with nearly any of the suits.
I prefer green Ivy, but the head looks too big in the photos. I don't know if it just the angles, but she looks a little off.

As much as I love the sub I really am just like blown away that they did not make some of these figures for retail.


I'm glad they didn't. They're cheaper in the sub format.

I do not collect this line, but I don't see how anyone could possibly be upset with that lineup. The packaging is also gorgeous in my opinion. To use an overused interweb colloquialism: that is all sorts of WIN.

Gotta give it to Matty on this one.

Mirror Master!! I'm so happy that they chose him! He's had the same costume for over 50 years, so it's a guaranteed fan pleaser. No need for arguing about whether it's Sam Scudder or Evan McCulloch!

Hope I can get both him and Flash on day of sale.

I must say that I'm a little surprised Black Mask wasn't a retail character. He may not be one of the better known Batman villains, but the imagery sort of sells itself.

Still, great line-up all around. Getting two Metal Men packed together is an especially nice touch.

Is it me or does Posion Ivy look a little buffer ? Maybe the 2 up is making it look like that.


We I hope that Mattel has finally made the arms thicker like the Wrestling female figures they make. People were complaining that the DCUC women had skinny pencil arms.

My Rocket Red Rant

The Good:
1) I am glad to finally get this figure.
2) I am glad that they did the army builder version.

The BAD:

1) Rocket Red should NOT BE AN OVERSIZED figure! I kept commenting on the poll saying this. The troops are regular sized humans.

2) If Mattel makes him oversized, it will be more expensive to buy a few extra to build a squad of Rocket Reds.

3) The chest armor is too big. It hangs too low making them look pot bellied. More of the abdomen should be showing. Mattel needs to fix this.

It might not be final. Poison Ivy wasn't final today.

She needs open(ish) hands, too. Fists don't work well for her.

this is very true. At least one open hand would be cool.

I imagine the absolute perfect Ivy figure to have the same basic hands as Raven, except without the rings, for summoning plants. Priscilla Rich's hands would probably work, too.
