of 2002. The set offered via e-Hobby shop much like the reissued M26X
set, however, M271/M272 set were limited to just 1000 set. e-Hobby shipped
M271/M272 set October 2003 and M273/M274 set in December
2003. Since M27X Type had five members originally, Takara decided to
reissue the last member, M275, together with M254 in June of 2003. M27X type was the
third Rescue Microman series and had never been reissued until now.

Takara released e-Hobby
M271/M272 set in October of 2002. The set were limited to just
1000 pieces and sold as e-Hobby shop exclusive. M273/M274 set were
released in December of 2002. M273 and M274 were never sold
individually before and only came as a pack-in vehicle for the playset.
(M273 was sold with Microman Gyro and M274 was sold with Cosmo Roller)
e-Hobby reissued M274 was done in light yellow color (same as M282), if
Takara is correct (which is mostly likely the case) then yellow M009
(New Microman version of M27X) is then the M27X figure with darker yellow
(same yellow as M262). Since M27X series had a fifth member M275 (he was
originally sold with Rescue Bird 3-4-5), Takara decided to pair him up
with M254 and plan to release
them as a set in June 2003 as e-Hobby Rescue Microman.
