Romando Microman Rescue Set
was one of the harder set to find in the State. (The
set was released in very limited numbers in Japan) Rescue Set
contains three figures: M251 Robin, a reproduction of original Takara
M251, M254 Wayne a reproduction of original Takara unnamed figure that
was included with a vehicle (Rolling Thunder), and M255 Wilder (Clear
neon green/black), an original Microman21. M255 Wilder is
very unique not just because he is the only clear M25X but he is also
the only Microman release thus far to have clear cuffs
and hands. The set also comes with three reproductions of
Microman Rescue Capsule.
Romando M251 Robin & M254 Wayne
Microman Rescue was
introduced in 1979 by Takara. Although they look very
sophisticated and refined they did not have a very lasting impact
compare to other type of Microman. This may be have to do
with the fact that by this Microman popularity is on the decline as
their audience was getting much older and also because unlike other
Microman their origin was not clearly told by Takara. The catalog at this time focus mainly on the establishment of Microman
Secret Base and the division of Microman into separate division much
like a secret organization (a concept very popular in many manga at the
time in Japan).
