Each week we look for a cool comic book collectible and take a close look at it. This week's features Metron the New God. This figure is part of Matty Collector's line of Signature Series figures. They are part of the Club Infinite subscription package (where you're automatically billed and shipped a new figure each month). Metron was exclusive for subscribers. The figures often end up going on sale as well on the site but you have to be quick before they sell out. There have been times in the past when sold out figures have gone back up for sale. You just have to keep a close eye on the site. Metron may not become available later. You might have to search elsewhere. This should also make you think about considering committing to the subscription for next year.
The first thing you should notice is how big this figure is. Rather than just Metron, he also comes with his Mobius Chair. While the chair is pretty simple, he wouldn't be as cool if he didn't have it.
The packaging is similar to the others in this line. There's a nice display in the front to get a look at the figure with some new art and a description on the back. Unfortunately my figure had a paint smudge on his nose. I'll have to try to touch that up.
I still love how the figures come in a plain white box. Makes it look classy.
Metron is similar to the other Mattel DC figures, in terms of articulation. That means he should fit right in with the others if you decide to display or play with them together. The chair is a snap to put together.
It's not really Metron's deal but you know he's totally going to be judging your other action figures as he sits around in his fancy Mobius Chair.
Having a chair is important for your action figures. Now they can take turns sitting around, provided Metron lets them.
