||Takara follows the release of reissue Command 1 & 2 with
the long await Command 3 M17X type. The Command 3 type was not reproduced by
Romando during their brief Microman21 series. The reason was probably because,
unlike the Command1 & 2, the original mold for the Command3 was either destroy or lost.
recast the mold from the vintage figures and has done an exceptional job. The
reissue Command 3 lost some of the fine details, common with the secondary mold process,
but still is a very nice reproduction job. With the high quality reissue
Takara did with this set, one can expect a very good reproduction of next type in the
Command series - Lady Command, whose mold had also long disappeared.
Takara also plans to release a Special Edition of M17X which will be the clear versions
of the Command3 series. This set will not be limited but rather will have a
wide distribution like the regular set via Toys R Us store in Japan.
For the year 2000, Takara release two more
M17X type, including two new members - M170 Takeru and M175
Toshiya. A special metallic version of M171 Takuya was
released as part of Toys R Us Exclusive Complete Commands Set.
