"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

The second assortments were released in July of 1999 and consisted of brand new Microman figures called the Super Microman. The new figures featured a much improve articulations over the first series (the Magne Microman). Beside new Microman figures, the Acroyer also get new figures - the Magne Arden. Takara rounded out the figures with new vehicle kit called Microman Kit-Machines. The Kit-Machines were homage to the first Microman toys and came unassembled. Takara also released the last Micro Machines - Mr. Grey and Power Drink set which was a tie with Takara Mr. Grey toy line. The set came with exclusive figure Microman Cyber.

However, by this time Microman was not doing as well as Takara had hope for and rumor of line cancellation began to surface.  Takara suffered serious financial trouble, both Microman and Transformers Beast Wars anime had drain the company already small capital and the toys did not generate the return that they had hope for.  By the end of the summer, Takara released the last Magne Power Microman toys - the two Robotman (D & E) and the Giant Acroyer.  The new Robotman toys were combiner style robots using magnemo connector with chest cockpits much like the old Robotman.  The Giant Acroyer also magnemo-8 combiner toys that featured three small robot that combined to form the New Giant Acroyer.  The toys from the Super Microman series were selling briskly and they got some positive response from fans.  By fall of 1999, Takara decided to release follow-up series called Microman LED Powers. The new, much smaller series was to be supported only with Bom Bom comic.
