Each figure of Wrecker Signa come with extra head so the figure can be swap and turn into full fledge Microman figure.

Microlady Signa 03 Sally

Using actual toys as prop, these Microlady toys actually appear in the live-action show.  (The show is either really low-budget or they just need to really sell the toys) These Microlady are the reason behind the girls' transformation powers.  The "Micro-nized" heads are in Microman chromed head style tradition but with the bug-like eyes in chrome colors.



Each figure comes with matching color Signa Saber.  Ruly figure comes with extra Signa Ribbon.

Each figure comes with two set of interchangeable hands (total of 10 extra pairs) along with Microlady 2.0 figure stand (sans the extra posts and mounting pieces).



TAKARA-TOMY, in 2007, announces new core Microman series.  This new series dubbed "Wrecker Signa Project" is a big departure from the previous Micro Force series.  Instead of using comics and CG story, the line is being combine with tokukatsu (Japanese live-action show) using young Japanese teen idol girls as a way to attract interest (the show is clearly gear toward young Japanese male.  The heroes and heroines in the show use Microman designs as inspirational and Microman toys even appear in the series as prop.  This new direction is most likely to reduce cost and hope to take Microman to main-stream audience.  With TAKARA division of TOMY in disarray after the merger and restructuring may be this is probably the best we can hope to get aside from the line being cancel completely.



MWS-01 is the first set in this new Wrecker Signa Project series.  The set includes two Microlady Signa figures 01 Ruly (pink) and 03 Sally (orange) along with the first introductory episode on DVD.  The figures are repaint versions of last year Microlady 2 Marl and Eriss. (Microlady Marl actually appears on the show).  The figure comes pack with alternate Microman head beside the Signa head.  The figures include two matching Signa Sabers and Ruly comes with extra Ribbon weapon.  The figure has nice paint job but suffer the same problem as previous Microlady 2 series with sometimes poor fitting armor pieces and loose joints.  While the 2.0 version of Microlady offers more "feminine" looking body, the head joint leave a lot to be desire not to mention even more fragile appearance due to smaller size.




Microman Wrecker Signa although appear to be more like Micro Action line is actually part of core Microman series and a sequel to Microman Force series.  The figures are essentially repaint versions of previous Microman toys, so unless you are really into color variants or hard-core collectors these Signa figures offer nothing new to the line aside from the added live-action show featuring young Japanese teen idols.
