Victory Edition M10X 2nd released - Takara e-Hobby Exclusive (4/01)

The first Microman to be reproduced by Takara after 25 years were, appropriately, the much sought after M10X barefoot Microman.  The M10X type were the very first Microman figures to be released by Takara back in 1974.  Actually when they were first appeared, these Microman came without any names or designation numbers, they were simply call Clear Microman, Yellow Microman, Blue Microman and Orange Microman.  In 1975, during the second year of Microman toys, Takara revised the first Microman series and gave them names, designations along with new feet (shoes), longer cuffs and most important of all the 5mm port in their backs.   These first series Microman later became known as the M10X barefoot type or the four Founder Microman.

Takara also release several variations of M101-M104 including opaque version, chrome version along with some new members to the M10X series (taking cue from the popular but shot live Romando Microman Two-One).   In late 1999, Takara also released several Microman barefoot as "souvenir" or "commemorative" figures.  These figures are not part of M10X members but were just simply "souvenir" pieces.  These Microman Barefoot became known as the Souvenir Microman.   They also planned Microman jockeys but these were later cancel.  In 2000, Takara granted licensed to a small garage toys company call Altimet to produce new Souvenir Microman barefoot that was sold with fabric costumes.  These Souvenir Microman also known as Victory Series.

Along with the Replica Microman figures, Takara also licensed Microman for several merchandises such as the telephone straps, Zippo lighters, trading cards set and Microman watches.  (The Microman Watches Set was cancel for 1999 but Takara is again offering them for the year 2000.)

Original Microman Story
M10X were the first Microman to arrived on modern day Earth. They came from MicroEarth in hibernation capsules after MicroEarth was destroyed. When the capsules were ejected from the planet it reacted with the alpha H-7 radiation and covered the capsules in crystal structures.  Microman drifted through space for four billion years, when they were finally awoken by the ray of the sun.
Microman found that the alpha H-7 radiation when reacted with the sun light also reduced their body to small size. The alpha H-7 radiation also reacted with the environment in which the crystallized capsules resided and caused automatic evolution that altered their appearances. They decided to search for other Microman  by building the M115 Conning Tower. The M115 send out Spectrum MX Ray that would revive other Microman from their hibernation.
