Graphic design from the exclusive M11X Series T-shirt by Sashida of Oriental Technology. These T-shirts were sold at Wonder Fest where Takara granted one day limited license for fans to produce Microman garage kits and merchandise to be sold at the show. (This particular T-shirt was a gift from Felix Lu of Fantasia Toyz)

Takara released Replica Microman M11X in April of 2000 and followed by the companion series M12X in May of the same year. The reissued M11X was the first "new" reproduction toys produced by Takara since the released of Spy Magician back in December of 1999. (Most of the Replica toys released in between were either exclusive recolor versions of the previously reissued Microman or special edition varieties. Both the M11X and M12X appeared to came from the new molds recast from the vintage figures. There were some small noticeable differences between the new version and the vintage 1970's series. The new figures also appeared to be a little shorter (artifact of the recast process). The figures overall however were very nice and unless one were to put the old and the new side by side, it would be very hard to discern the differences.

The M11X and the M12X were originally released back in 1975 as followed up series to the M10X (the first series Microman). These figures began the departure from the Henshin Cyborg heritage and Microman series began to come to its own design. M11X and M12X were more "mechanical-like" in designs than the M10X series and the initial version of these figures were shown with robotic head as these two types of Microman were suppose to be Android A version of Microman. Takara would later reissued M11X and M12X with these Prototype Head as M115 Ban and M125 Morgan. Beside these special set, Takara also reissued M110 Preton which was originally a Microman Gum Premium exclusive from 1976. Takara also released clear mode version of these two types as Toys R Us exclusive along with movie tie-in figure for Electric Dragon movie. In 2004, Takara released Tokyo Toy Fest commemorative Microman using the M11X. The Tokyo Toy Fest M11X was the first Replica Microman figures to be released by Takara since the line went on hiatus in 2003.
