Power-Up Attachments for Microman by Factory M (Media Factory) (c.1999)
Microman property for various merchandised, but the most interesting one
to most Microman collectors was the U-Borg Series produced by a company
call Media Factory. The U-Borg were school stationary
supplies (pen, ruler etc) that double as power-up attachments for
Microman. Can you imagine being a kid and able to take a Microman
to school along with all his power-up units disguise as your school
supplies in case Acroyers launch a surprise attack on your school.
U-Borg is probably one of the best accessory licensed by Takara.
The name U-Borg came from the old Microman toys the Uniquer which were
magnetic toys that functioned as school supplies.
According to the
package and BomBom comic book, the U-Borgs are supposed to be power-up
weapons and equipment develop for Microman by a secret U-Borg Laboratory
code name Factory M (stand for Media Factory if you didn't get it).
What make U-Borg really cool is that, they have many 5mm connectors and
ports as a mean to attach the power-up unit to Microman. By using 5mm
ports and connectors U-Borg can be used with the old Microman toys, not
only the vintage Microman action-figures but also the vehicles and bases
and they are fully customizable. There were 21 U-Borg
power-up units originally plan by Media Factory plus a few variations. Each U-Borg came package
in a very nicely design small cardboard box, and also includes a
card about each U-Borg. Media Factory canceled the remaining unreleased
M-007, M-009, M-011 and M-013 to M-021) in 2000.
At the end of 1999,
Media Factory produced a special limited edition U-Borg Starter Kit call
Parallel Junction M-2000.
This box set contains 18 of the various U-Borg units plus special gold
version of M-004 UnitShell Laser along with 2 U-Borg schematic drawing
and U-Borg Lab Secret File containing U-Borgs Combination units by U-Borg
