American.   Dr. Kohei (the boy Kohei has become a professor)  send Arthur and Walt to another dimension via the pyramid in S. America  in order to acquire information on new source of energy call LEDcium. Izam was then send to S. America to acquire LEDcium elements to power the new LEDcium technology but was intercept by Vampiser.  Arthur and Walt went to help and thus begin a new battle for LED power.


Takara also released yet another retooled Transformers toys called Micro Rocket Base. The base was repainted version of Transformers Micromaster line toy, Countdown.  Micro Rocket Base came packed with exclusive Shining Edison. Takara also released Shining version of Zett, Solomon and Shakunetsu as "Perfect Shining" Microman. These figures however did not come with new head sculpt and were pretty much repaint versions of the Master Microman and packaged with the full set of the new "Tector" armors. With the financial difficulty at Takara new Microman series was again put on indefinite hiatus. Takara also planned to reuse Beast Wars Transformers toys as Microman Beetle Troopers but these toys were never released by the time LED Microman series came to an end.


Shining Tector came with cut-out stand for the Tector armors.  A fully assemble version can be seen below (photo courtesy of Rik Ruff - Microman Megaplex)
