Takara follows the release of reissue Command 1 & 2 with the long await Command 3 M17X type.   The Command 3 type was not reproduced by Romando during their brief Microman21 series.   The reason was probably because, unlike the Command1 & 2, the original mold for the Command3 was either destroy or lost.

Takara recast the mold from the vintage figures and has done an exceptional job.   The reissue Command 3 lost some of the fine details, common with the secondary mold process, but still is a very nice reproduction job.    With the high quality reissue Takara did with this set, one can expect a very good reproduction of  next type in the Command series - Lady Command, whose mold had also long disappeared.

Takara also plans to release a Special Edition of M17X which will be the clear versions of the Command3 series.   This set will not be limited but rather will have a wide distribution like the regular set via Toys R Us store in Japan.

For the year 2000, Takara release two more M17X type, including two new members - M170 Takeru and M175 Toshiya.   A special metallic version of M171 Takuya was released as part of Toys R Us Exclusive Complete Commands Set.
