LED Powers Exclusive

Limited Editions

Takara continued with more exclusives and limited edition toys for the LED series but the list was much smaller than the previous year.

Takara followed the initial Magne Power launch line-up with much smaller 2nd series in spring of 1999.  The second series introduced the Titans and the Magne Animals.  The new Titans shared the same magnemo joints compatibility with the Magne Robotman series.  The figures however were quite different from the old Microman Titan line.  The Magne Animals rounded up the Titans line-up and were homage to the old line.

"Microman is Super Human 8 cm tall. He came to Earth, chasing the Acroyer.  Now save the Earth from the Acroyer! Use a table as base."

- from Magne Power Package


 By spring of 1999, Microman Anime series was in full swing.


Beside the Magne Titans and Magne Animals, Takara also re-released old Microman Micro Change cassette toys from 1983 as Cassette Machine toys. The redeco toys included two new Magne Power Microman figures - Microman Clark and Cain, both of whom came with new head sculpts. Takara would later used old molds to fill in the gap for the new Microman line, especially during the LED Powers series when the budget was very limited.
