MICROMAN 2006 - MICROLADY PART 2
Takara release follow up series to
Microlady in September of 2006 as Microlady 2. The second series of all
female Microman follow the same format as the first by splitting the
series into two sides, Microman side and Acroyear side. Microman side
consist of two new characters ML2-01 Marl and ML2-02 Eriss and Acroyear
side consist of two new Acroyears AL-51 AcroGarula and AL-52 AcroSpira.
This is the only second core Microman series to be released by Takara
for 2006 which have seen a big slow down compare to the previous years.
MICROLADY FULL ACTION
BODY VERSION 2
Microlady 2 series also for the first
used the new Microlady Full Action Body Version 2 (Anime Body) for the
core line. (The body has been used for Micro Action Series). The new
body look great for Microlady and Acrolady figure and give the figure a
much more feminine looks. The new body is slightly slender than the old
Microlady Full Action Body and has the anime style and feel. Ver. 2 body
come with even more interchangeable hands including several new
un-articulated style hands which not only looks better on the figure,
they also provide a much more steady hands for holding weapons and
accessories. However, if you prefer the old articulated hands Takara
also include them with the new body for total of 10 style hands.
MRZ1200 Needle Cumber
Mind Capture Mode
Medical Mover Mode
MicroLady Eriss is clear green figure
with white painted shoulder arms and legs. The body utilize the new
Microlady Ver. 2 Body. Eriss come with very minimal armors with only
shoulder and ankle armor pieces. The main accessory for her is her
weapon the MRZ1200 Needle Cumber (yes you read it correctly) that also
double as vehicle. Needle Cumber is a metallic green syringe (hence the
name Needle Cucumber) that can be unfolded and transform into weapon or
vehicle for the Microlady. It is interesting that Takara start to make
Microman weapon that resemble object in human world. The green cucumber
1200 has three separate modes, the first one is Mind Capture mode, this
mode is used for capturing Psycho Acroyears that are hiding inside human
mind. The second mode is MW Mode or Medical Weapon Mode. In this mode
the Needle Cumber is hold up against the body as a giant bazooka, the
a homage to the old Microman Hand Bazooka M22X from 1970's series
(Micronauts Galactic Warrior). The third mode is vehicle mode dubbed
Medical Mover. The clear parts unfold and turn into propellers and the figure
can ride on Needle Cumber as hover bike.
Medical Weapon Mode
MicroLady Eriss is a very nice figure and
the accessory despite the corny name is actually very cool. The figure
has nice articulations with all the armors fit well to the body. I
always prefer Microman figure that is not busy looking and this figure
and her companion Marl certainly fit the minimalist design. It is nice
to see Takara try to sneak in a weapon accessory that can be double as vehicle for the figure
since there seems to be a big lack of vehicle for the modern series.
