Replica M181 Ann

The return of the Microman angels had been much anticipated by all Microman collectors.   Takara did an excellent job at the reproductions of these much sought after Microman figures.  The newly recast molds were very closely resembled the original that one can only tell the difference by putting the them side by side.   Like the reissued Command 3, the body details was very good but still had slightly differences from the original such as some of the engrave lines were wider or shaped differently.  The reissued Lady Command's head was much better than the reissued Command 3's head.   Lady Command head retain much of the details of the original only suffered only slightly from the smooth out effect on top section.  The capsule was very nicely done and were very close to the original version.  It seem that Takara used thinner plastic for the skirt section which made the green (Annie) and the blue (Alice) to had somewhat semi-translucent skirts.  The only flaw was the poor fitting parts.  The feet were a little too loose, the arm sockets recess too deep, and the wings did not fit too well into the legs.

Vintage Lady Command figures were some the rarest of all the regular issued Microman figures. They were the only female Microman figure in the entire Microman line up from 1974 to present.  Back in 1977, it was quite a bold move for Takara to produce girl action-figure for a boy toys line.  Takara like many other companies were probably trying to get girls to interest in their best selling toys line and increased the sale. Lady Command was originally introduced as Microman who had came to earth long ago and appeared to human as angels.  They remained hidden inside the Statue of Liberty until they were discovered by Microman Commands.
