2004 came in beautifully done removable blister card
style packaging. The backing card had very nice picture
of the toy with all the accessories on display in the
blister window. As a nice touch, the blister had the
"O" design (in MICROMAN logo) molded on. While
the cylinder tube 2003 series was nice and compact, the
new blister was definitely more attractive looking.
was the most vicious and destructive of the Acroyears. The body
possessed the most poisonous venom from snakes and very fatal to
those that get struck by him. His head can be separated
and function as independent entity.

2004 came with new style figure stand. The stand
features Microman "Da Vinci" style logo emboss
on clear plastic with two styles of pegs - one for
the newer Microman figures and one for the vintage
figures with 5mm port.
2004 AX-14 AcroBiom was the fourth and last member of the Acroyear X series.
(Acroyear X was the evil counterpart to the Microman Master Force). The designs of the new
Acroyears followed the King Walder designs (enemy of Henshin Cyborg)
rather than that of the Acroyears from the original 1970's Microman
line. Because of this design concept, the new Acroyear-X might take some getting used to, but
since the new Microman designs were more akin to the Henshin Cyborgs,
having the bad guy followed the same design philosophy made a lot more sense
than turning these villains into the mechanical beings from vintage
as in Microman Master Force series, Acroyear-X had plenty of design
were direct homage to both Microman and Henshin Cyborg villains.
AcroBiom was probably the most unconventional looking of the four
Acroyears. He had a large monster head with long "pony
tail"-like tail that sprout out from the top of his head. His monster
head, shield and spear could be seen as a take on Microman Amazon
Acroyear but of the four Biom probably had the least design elements
from the old series and the most organic looking.
