The paper reports computations for Mg@C 74, Ca@C 74, Sr@C 74, Ba@C 74, and all lanthanoids, based on encapsulation into the only C 74 IPR (isolated pentagon rule) cage, and for Al@C 82, Sc@C 82, Y@C 82 and La@C 82 based on encapsulation into the IPR C 2v C 82 cage. Their structural and energetic characteristics are used for evaluations of the relative production yields, employing the encapsulation Gibbs-energy terms and saturated metal pressures. It is moreover shown that the encapsulation potential-energy changes in such series can be well related to the mere ionization potentials of the free metal atoms.
