Instead of lumping Metal Men Platinum and Tin into the general DCUC Club Infinite Earths thread, wanted to make a separate discussion...

Discuss!

I really hope they tweak the color on Tin. They look way too similar.

Tin should have a slight blueish hue.

Thirded

I wish there was a way that Plat's skirt didn't take away so much articulation, but I know that the options aren't really there.

I am totally into these figures. I am just as totally disappointed by how little effort goes into each consecutive metal man. The first had 2 cast iron attachments. the second had 2 plastic attachments. the third had one plastic attachment. now the fourth and fifth have no attachments. is lead just going to be a flat cardboard cut-out?

What happened to Tin's size? Sure that can't be correct... :?

Sigh. Yeah, that's not right. Still, these two are a couple of my biggest wants from the sub that I didn't get. Luckily , I have some help from a subscriber. Tin should be a little taller though.

If thats the size he comes out at, then the fact he has only arm articulation means we can get a customizer to cast him and hydro-span it a bit bigger. BUT WE SHOULDN'T HAVE TO!!!! I really hope Mattel sort it out before they release it, how can scale be something they screw up so often!!!!

He is really small haha. What's annoying is that I keep telling myself I'm going to sell the Metal Men and every time I get a new one he's just too cool to do so.

I know. The Metal Men and the Doom Patrol were the whole reason I started collecting DC Universe Classics and I've had to wait it out through a subscription so they could make some 80's cartoon characters and lantern repaints. Grrr.

After seeing The Fwoosh's first look at Platinum and Tin of the final toys, I'm so disappointed that Tin is so small. I was willing to let it pass that Lead was so big. But somehow, his scale still worked. However, Tin is just so out of place.

Tin was always the lamest of the crew, so he'll be locked away in the accessory bin.

Team's never gonna be complete without the Doc and Copper, anyway. :?

I'm insanely excited to get these (thanks to a board member) even though Tin is too small and Lead is too big.

They copped out on Tin. He could have been a smallish figure like Penguin and Kid Flash but with the added value of some cool accessories. Imagine a bicycle that you could pop his head on and then have the other Metal Men ride him around. This could have been fun.

Or heck, even even redo the Plastic Man suitcase in tin color and pack it with him.

The second I saw Lead I said they should have used the body that they're using for their Dark Knight Returns figure or MOTU.

Oh well, I'm really happy to be finishing this team. This is my last DCUC team I finish. well....unless I get hooked into building Mattel's New 52 Justice league. but knowing Mattel , they'll quit before getting to Cyborg.
