    Plaid Stallions Metal Man and UFO Adventure Sets




    The Metal Man figures actually predate Star Wars but they couldn't have found a better time to exist. I remember being really fascinated with these characters and even buying the DC "Metal Men" comic as a kid thinking they were somehow related. I was disappointed...

    I remember having one. I think he was green. Or maybe the blue guy.

    I had the gold guy with the jet pack. He was an all-purpose robot for my Pocket Heroes to fight. And when I discovered the Doom Patrol, he was Robotman!

    Hey! I still have Questar! I had no idea his name was Questar!

    I used to really dig these guys. For some reason, I was a Metal Man guy and my brother was a Micronauts guy.

    I have Questar as well and he survived fairly well over all of these years.

    This is one of the many toy lines I "re-discovered" thanks to the Museum. My brother got them around that time when he was getting "too old for toys" but still not ready to give them up. So I got to play with them. I didn't know the name of the line but I was fascinated by the figures being metal. I'd benefit again from this phase in my brother's life when Micronauts were released. The phase lasted through high school

    I had the saucer from this line and used it with my Micronauts. It was gray exterior with orange interior. I had an astronaut from this line, as well, but I don't see him in the ad. Seems like he was named "Major Mercury". The toys I had from this line were a lot of fun.

    I was more of a Metal Men Astronaut guy, but I remember these UFO Metal Men at Kay-Bee.

    I love the Metal Man line, especially my favorite, Major Mercury. Went and found a post I made back in 2011. This was before Photobucket was despicable.

    You are transparent; I see many things... I see plans within plans.
