I had a ll the metal men, but mine differed a bit from the catalog photos. My saucer was grey and not a shiny metallic blue or purple, and I also has a wedge shaped rocket ship with a clear canopy and the letters NASA in red on the sides. This came with an astronaut shaped metal man. The 4-pc UFO set was not part of the group, and the 2 gold metal men came later.I still have them all, though a couple suffer from metal fatigue with either loose joints or broken off limbs. One of my astronauts broke at the waste and was combined with a plastic tank to make him resemble somewhat that cyborg that joind up with Han, Chewbacca and the big green bunny in the early post movie adaptation Star Wars comics.
While I'm here, shoot me an email and let me know if you'll be participating in this year's Halloween Countdown. Thanks!
Hi, This is TR. Holy BEEP! I used to have that metal man with the spring-loaded wings! Thanks for the memories, Plaid Stallion!
My grandmother got me the set marked "18" in this catalog shot! I thought they were great toys, and should have been Micronauts! (I had no idea they were actually copied from Microman toys.)
I played with my Metal Men with the Micronauts. They just added to the multiverse.
