The watch is plastic Swatch type
wrist watch. The dial has picture of M103 from early Microman-zone
Interestingly, each figure came with
an all black New Microman style capsule. The solid black capsule
made them look a lot like a coffin. Takara probably used New
Microman type capsule to accommodate Acroyear figures.
Takara originally planed to release two set of
Microman Watches - one for the Acroyear and one for Microman back in
1999. The watches were planned to be sold in a tin collectible case
and each would be packaged with an exclusive figures - a smoke clear M10X
for Microman design watch and gray A30X for Acroyear design watch.
However due to insufficient orders and high cost, Takara canceled the
Takara revived the plan for Microman
Watch Set in 2000 and decided to change it from the original plan. The
plan now consisted of only one watch, a Microman design based on cheaper
Swatch type plastic watch. The set however came with two better
selection of exclusive figures - M110 Preton, a figure based on the Microman
gum premium from 1976 and A384 Iron Star, a burnt iron color A38X type
Acroyear. Takara offered the set as Takara e-Hobby (Takara's
on-line store) exclusive.
M110 Preton came with newly design sticker sheet so
he would match the rest of the M11X members. (Original figures did not have
sticker). A384 was done in burnt iron color with metallic gray limbs
instead of the usual black which made him slightly difference from the rest
of A38X members. A384 came with matching Acroyear accessories -
Acro-Wing, Bazooka, roller wheel, two roller
arms, and two missiles.
