Nano- Metal Figures for Supers
« on: November 12, 2018, 06:40:21 PM »
I was in my local big box retailer and ran across these Nano Metal Super Hero figures.  They are metal and come pre-painted to a common toy standard.  They were about a $1 or so a model and about 35mm or so. 

I picked several up and decided to do some simple re-paints for games...

Pretty inexpensive and a wide assortment of designs and styles to make all sorts of Super archetypes.

I've seen them, and they are pretty nice.
Unfortunately, I don't game with "known heroes", and the ones I've seen are so distinctive that I couldn't use them for anything else.
Still, they are $1 metal figures...

I've also seen Harry Potter ones.  Which people would like for HP, but a few could easily be used as civilians or pulp characters.

Some GS and some re-painting helps out..... but the Batman ones in particular are pretty obvious without GS work. 

Too bad I was too lazy.  :)

I have a few of the streetfighter guys. The faces aren't very good and they each have a hefty mould line which would require far more effort to remove than it's worth. But for a $1 they are good enough to practice painting on.
