Spy Leaders Story


M130 and M140 are leaders of Microman Spy Magicians who travel around the world to instruct other Microman in the arts of Spy Magicians. 


Microman Spy Magicians were the specially train Microman in the art of spy and espionages. They underwent rigorous training and only those who passed the test were allowed to wear the bracelet and use the spy teleport wand.


M130 and M140 were revived near the beach where Acroyear first emerged.  They designed and establish the bracelet and wand system to communicate with one another.  They became the leaders of the Spy Magicians.  However, the two soon discovered the Acroyear's plan of world domination and their growing numbers so they establish MCIA (Microman Central Intelligence Agency) to train other Microman.


Takara released special Metallic Mode version of Microman Spy Leaders as Japan Robot Laboratory store exclusives. Unlike the standard versions of M130 and M140 Spy Leaders, the metallic versions were sold separately instead as a set.  (The standard mode were sold as e-Hobby exclusive). The figures were sold to commemorate the opening of the new Japan Robot Laboratory hobby store on April 28th 2001.  Along with these two figures, Japan Robot Laboratory also sold special editions of Choro Q buses with Microman, Robotman and Henshin Cyborg artwork designs.

M130 Duke had metallic red body with metallic black legs. The chest part and head remained silver chromed. M140 came in a striking metallic green body with gold plated abdominal piece. The legs were also metallic just like the M130 Duke.  M130 and M140 each came with two sets of Spy Magician wands and bracelets. The figure also included a black Replica Microman stand.These two figures were actually two very striking Microman figures but the rapid the releases of exclusives in 2000-2001 somewhat diminished the coolness of the set considering the standard Spy Leaders set came out just a month prior.
