1999 Replica Microman Series

Re-issue Microman Command 1 M151 East, M152 Eric, M153 Elder & M154 Evan (3/1999)


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 (anti-gravity) wings.

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).
