Wecker Signa Project
Microman core line was put into a brief
hiatus state in early 2007 after Takara and Tomy merger. In mid
2007, Takara-Tomy announced new series of core Microman line called
Wecker Signa Project. This new series is radically different than
the previous line and using the teen idols as a vehicle to co-promote
the line. Microman line is now market along with low budget
tokukatsu (live-action) show on DVD.
As expected, the new WS line is full of
merchandise and CD & DVD tie-in promotion with Teen Idol personalities.
The initial line up are four Microlady Wecker Signa figures (retool
from last year Microlady 2 series) sold with DVD set and the follow up
figures are also several repaints of Microman Force series figures.
New figures of Wecker Signa in first stage power-up (mini-skirt
costumes and human head instead of rubber suit and tight outfit) are plan for next year, all of the figures are available as
part of DVD or CD mail-in promotion (the figures are limited to 1000
