Version 2.0


Bandai released Version 2.0 of Beta Midget around April of 2003. 2.0 consisted of five Midget figures and three Jackets. The figures were new version of Salamander (dubbed Type 2), a new character named Undine who represent the water elemental and three Beta Midgets in their "Early Types" designs. Salamander Type 2 featured red and orange color Midget figure with new mold of Salamander's head and Undine was a new Beta Midget with white and blue colors scheme. The three Early Types used the same basic body as the standard Midgets but with different arms, hands and heads.  The striking parts about the Early Types were the facts that these Midgets were all wearing helmets and came with translucent chest pieces. The two Jackets, Alahabaki  and Thrust II were made for Salamander Type 2 and Orb Jacket was for Undine.
