M111 Keychain wing (front view)
M113 Keychain wing (back view)
Microman figure stand (smoke clear)
Each figure come with white
Each member come with specific color
capsule just like the original vintage version of the M11X, however the
Capsule stickers are generic and not character specific like the
original and Takara switch the M111 & M112 capsules. (M111 suppose
to have orange capsule while M112 should be red. Also note the
same error was made on the Microman Trading Cards)
Reissue M11X come with replica of the
original sticker sheet. The sticker sheet come with sticker for all
the members of the M11X type. This is a great added bonus since many of
the vintage M11X do missing the sticker sheet. (Note the vintage
version come with the extra chest sticker already applied to the figure
plus the sticker sheet)
Takara reissues the reproduction
version of M11X Capsule Microman in April of 2000. M11X reissue
come on a very nice Microman-Zone style removable blister card.
The card back also show the upcoming M12X reissue.
Reissue M11Xs are very closed to the
original vintage toys. The head of M11X is the same as the one
from the recently reissue M14X (since they share the same head design). The head lost some details and
appears to be slightly smaller than the original vintage version.
The body is a very closed reproduction of the original with just some
slight difference in the details. The color is almost exact
replica of the original figures. It's must be note that back in 1970's Takara revised
M111 Bobson and gave him a lighter blue color for the subsequence
released. The version Takara pick to reproduce however is the
original first run version from 1975 which is a dark blue tone. Also the shoes on M11X was
also revised in 1976 to be longer and this is the version Takara
reissues. The shoes were probably lengthen to add stability to the
Here is a comparison between the
vintage M111 (first version) and the reissue M111. Note the
slightly different in the width of the chest & torso section.
Takara also included all the original
accessories for M11X series, the capsules and the "L"
connector. The capsules are reproduced with the same specific
color of the vintage version. Takara even reproduce the sticker
from the vintage M11X capsule but without the specific name &
designation. The "L" connectors however comes only
in white, while the original come in color matching the figure pelvic (i.e.
M114 Blacky would have yellow "L" connector).
Besides the original accessories,
Takara also included two "extra" bonus accessories, the first
is a smoke clear stand (Takara seems to start a new trend since the M14X
Reissue by including a Reissue Series stand with each figure), the
second bonus which also the one that Takara count on to get collector to
buy the M11X Reissue even if they already own the original is the
exclusive key-chain wing. The wing came in a matching color with the
figure. The key-chain wing is a reproduction of the original
1976-77 premium promotion.
