Mode Hoodman came in a flap panel window box.
Mode H70X came in smoke clear capsule. (Same as the Glitter Mode Micro
Clear Mode Micro Hoodman H70X
set was proposed in late 2001 just as Replica Microman line was winding
down. It was assumed that the set would be yet another Toys R Us store
exclusive since they had been doing all the "Clear Mode".
However, Replica Microman line was doing poorly by late 2001 and with many
of the Toys R Us Clear Mode set still glutting many of the stores in Japan
the plan for Clear Mode Hoodman was shelved.
Mode Hoodman L-R H701, H702 & H703
2002, Replica Microman series was reduced to just one wide-release series -
the much delay MD60X Type Micro Devilman. The rest of the releases
were limited to either toys show exclusive or Takara own e-Hobby
store. Toys R Us decided to release the Clear Mode Hoodman H70X
as their on-line store exclusive in August of 2002. The original
plan to release a new member H704 was scrap and only three Clear Mode
Hoodman H701, H702 and H703 were released as part of the box set.
Mode version of H70X came with clear Hood (instead of clear yellow) and the
heads were chrome instead of painted. The small wing was also done in
clear plastic. Interestingly, Takara followed the original normal mode
color schemes and produced Clear Mode H701 and H703 with different shade of
colors between their bodies and their arms.
