M28X Type was released during the second
half of 1979 for the Rescue Microman series along with M27X
type. M28X Type shared the same basic body parts as the two
earlier Rescue types - M25X & M26X.
M281 Clark and M282 Ryan were the only two
members of M28X type to be sold individually in the Rescue Case.
The cases were the same as M25X and M26X type, however, M281 came with
tan color case and M282 came with green color case. (All
individual sale M25X came in a white color case and all individual sale
M26X came in either white or blue case). The rest of the
members - M283 & M284 were sold as part of the playset or a vehicle.
M283 was sold with Rescue Command Gyro and M284 was sold
with Cosmo Roller playset. After the release of M27X and M28X during
the second half of 1979, Takara used the idea of "exclusive"
pack-in figure as a way to sell more playset and vehicles.
This tactic of offering special color figure as an exclusive pack-in
would continued through Microman Punch year and eventually on to New
M27X Variants Checklist
*Note : M283
sold with black/orange Rescue Gyro, and M284 sold with blue Cosmo Roller.
In 1981, Takara released M28X type as
New Microman M010
