produced two exclusive version of Real Microman Bio-Mechanic Suits BS-1
and BS-2 for sale at Wonder Festival. The set were rumored to be limited
to just around 200 pieces each. BS-1 was released in clear purple
plastic (Night Operation Mission Type) and BS-2 (High Temperature
Nuclear Hyper Type) was released in clear red plastic. Both came with
chrome plated version of Hyper Microman figure kit.
set however was not newly created colors by Romando but these two Bio
Mechanic suit set were actually "reproduction" of the two exclusives
that Takara were planning as part of the mail-away promotion back in
1980's. It was unclear if Takara actually produced and mailed out these
exclusives back in the days since the Real Microman concept was canceled
when Microman Micro Change series gained popularity. So this set also
unique in the sense that it reproduced the very rare and may be even
un-produced Microman toys.
two Bio-Mechanic suit sets were relative rare items from ROMANDO
Microman 21 line and one of the very last toys released by them before
TAKARA took back the license. These kits while they are not in the same
tradition as your regular Microman toy play vital role at the both the
beginning and the end of original Microman line . Microman model kit
type toys have long been part of Microman line-up since the day of the
Kit-Machines and the Bio Suit set represented the emergence of the "Pla-mo"
(plastic kit) period that would later became permanent fixture of toys
and hobby scene in Japan. The Bio Suit while short live demonstrated the
direction for Microman that TAKARA was considering if not for the
success of the Micro
Change and Diaclone line that would later gave rise to the Transformers series.
Exclusive Bio Mechanics Suits were sold in the same packaging as the
regular version which was essentially a reproduction of the old Real
Microman boxes. The small strip of stickers along the bottom on the
box front denoted the exclusive versions along with Takara licensed
logo and Romando logo. Aside from these there was no other marking
that would distinguish this set from the standard set.
