Takara - SCF (Super Collection Figures) Series (2000-2001)

In December of 2000 Takara formally entered into the immensely popular collectible segment in Japan of PVC gashapon (capsule) and candy toys with the new line call Super Collection Figures (SCF).   The first SCF series revolved around Takara Transformers Generation One property.   SCF: Transformers Generation One line was very popular with collectors and already in its fifth series.  In 2001, Takara expanded the SCF line to included non-Transformers properties such as Henshin Cyborg and Microman.  This new SCF line was call Takara SF Worlds (taking the cue from recent toys book "Takara SF Land").

SCF figurines came in small seal box with content hidden.  Each series (called ACT) consisted of twelve standard figurines and two chase (rare) figurines that were randomly inserted into a case of twelve boxes.  A case would normally contained all twelve of the standard figurines but some rare case would have one of the standard figure replaced with the rare chase figure.   Beside the fourteen figures, each ACT also came with two large Bonus Figures.  The Bonus Figures came in multiple parts, with each parts included inside one of the box.
