Now for four more Nano Metals figures.
Here is some Killer Croc:
*GRIN*. Can’t say I’m a fan of the sculpt on this one, but it does amuse me so. The green doesn’t fit Killer Croc at all either. Shorts are roughly painted, and don’t look great either. The parts of his face that are painted are painted neatly but… well… it looks like that. Just look at it.
There’s some nice sculpt details here in the spiny knobbles, it’s nice they’ve given him pockets, but that right pocket sticks out so far, like he’s got a large lump of something in there. Left pocket would look better, if it didn’t melt into his back.
Overall, this one has amusement value only.
I’d say this guy is the least-known out of the heroes included in this set. Paint is a bit sloppy in this guy, though he can partly get away with it, being a guy made out of several elements. Wish they would’ve done his shorts in black, rather than lazing out and just doing them in brown. The figure already features black on his face, so not sure why they didn’t.
They’ve done a nice job of sculpting his mud leg, and the paints are a bit neater back here.
Overall, I think he’s a decent mini-figure.
This is based on his orange-and-purple outfit form, which wouldn’t be my first pick. However, they’ve done a decentish job of rendering him at a first glance – colours look bold, suit is sculpted well, and his face has both its halves. Main issues for me is they didn’t paint his tie black, and whilst they gave him a mouth, it does look rather odd. And on that point… where are his eyes?!
And is it me, or does he look like he’s trying to take a shit?
Back looks OK, but the paint doesn’t quite meet happily in the middle.
Overall, probably not one I’m going to prominently display.
Lastly, Mr Freeze:
I really like the colours and pose on this one. However, his head doesn’t hold up to close scrutiny – looks like they didn’t fully decide if they were going to do his head or his helmet, and melded the two… I think it would’ve been better if they went without the helmet, and made his head less elongated. This would make the figure look better, and give the owner the option to add a clear part, if they wished. The gun is nicely sculpted though.
Gun looks good back here, and his backpack looks decent. Helmet-head looks less silly from this angle, as there are no details on this side.
Overall, I think he’s one of the stronger figures in the set. But dammit… that head-thing. Wish they didn’t do that.
