The subject of this weeks Toy-Ventures is one of the coolest and most underrated action figure lines of the 1970s, the “Metal Man” series by Zee Toys (AKA Zylmex).
The Metal Man line had no TV advertising, no print campaign but thanks to its excellent design and timing (arriving at the same time as the Micronauts and Star Wars) it ran well into the 1980s and never added a single figure. We discuss the line’s charms and it’s ongoing popularity with collectors and look at my meager collection.
