Special Thanks to my friend Jay P. for these Korean Edition of Magne Power
In 2001, Korean company licensed
Magne Power Microman toys and anime for import to Korea. The line up
included all the toys from the Magne Power series. The toys were
marketed in conjunction with the TV show. Korean version of
Magne Power toys were fully licensed products but the toys were produced by
Korean factory instead of China. I only have the five Microman figures
and these did have some minor differences from the Takara
version. The plastic colors came in slightly different shades
and the paint job was much better than Takara version. The chrome parts were
also much thicker with more luster but had some excess chrome flash.
The back of the figure was fully painted unlike the Takara version where the
5mm port and the panels were left clear. The butt also had TAKRA'98
with "KOREA" stamp instead of "CHINA". The shoulder
rivets were changed from the rounded top to flat rivet.
Edition of Magne Power Microman Arthur
toys came package in cardboard box instead of the blister pack.
The line-up was divided into M Series for the small figures and DX series
for the larger figures (Robotman) and the vehicle play-sets.
Magne Microman Kit-Machines had separate KIT designation.
far it appeared that the Korean versions were limited to just some of the
early Magne series and the magnemo toys. Also the Acroyer were all missing
from the line-up. It was uncertain if the Super series and the later
LED series would be produced as follow-up line for 2002. This
would be great for those who missed out on the Super and many LED figures
which were produced in very limited quantities by Takara.
the figure came package with Microman catalog similar to the vintage
Microman series catalog. Each figure also came with two trading
cards. They appeared to be randomly inserted.
