Takara Replica Series Microman Command 1
Package. The package was the slide out blister card type with
beautiful card back. The figures were packed in action pose with
the wings in a small plastic bag.
Replica Series Command 1 and 2 shared the
same package design.
Takara included Command 1 Easter
Island capsule with each figure along with the gold Anti-Repulsion
Takara followed the release of Microman M10X barefoot
with re-issues of Microman Command 1 & 2 in March of 1999 for their
Replica Series. This was to be expected since Command 1 & 2 molds
were already refurbished by Romando and Romando Microman21 version were
getting really hard to find.
Takara re-issues of Microman Command 1
appeared to came one from the same mold as the one used by Romando for their
Microman 21 series. Because of this, both of the re-issues were
nearly identical to one another with the difference between them being some
minor color variations. The one that stood out the most was M153 Elder.
Takara Replica Microman version had slightly greenish tint and therefore
actually are more closely resembled the original 1977
version. The rest were nearly identical in colors with
Takara used more glossy plastic for the shoes and shin guards.
Takara also fixed the poor fitting body and legs connector, so the figures
now can stand without the twisting problem. However,
Takara regrettably did not fix the problem of the loose feet (usually the
left one) and they still spin like a pinwheel. This is too bad
since Takara could have easily fix this minor defect. (It seem
that the hole is too big for the peg).
