The article on the front page really has piqued my interest in the figure. Can't wait to get this one.

Agreed. I know he's taller than he is in the comics, but I'm still super-excited to get him. I think he looks great with the rest of the team.

I thought that might be a problem as well, but the tunic really smooths things out.

I'm SOOOO psyched for him. And it was a smart move on Mattels part to ship him, and the Platinum/Tin two pack in the same month. That just makes me smile. They need to think more like this for next year.

Huh, I didn't realize they were shipping together. That is going to be a good month.

Getting out of scale figures sight unseen is getting old fast. :evil:

Any chance you could re-shoot that scale pic but include the DCSH Darkseid and the CnC Kalibak? I'm looking for base figures to make Lead more inscale. I'm already lining up someone to shrink and cast the head a bit smaller, so just need to find a smaller wide body buck for the rest. I'll be using modded Mongul lower legs as they have the studs round the top of the boots.

Well, I guess I'm just an old goat because I'm not really happy with Lead being so oversized in comparison to the rest of the Metal Men. Considering he was short of stature in all his comic appearances, I find the use of the oversize buck a bit disheartening. And, to me, the tunic looks like some sort of odd apron/dress when you look at the back... I'll be glad to get him, but I'm not all that excited about it... :|
