Microman 2004 Acroyear X-2 Series was released on Jan. 27th, 2005. The series was delayed from the original December release date and one of the last Microman series for the 2004 line-up as the line moved on to the 2005 Magne Force series to be debuted in April. Acroyear X-2 as the name suggested was the followed up series to the Acroyear X. However instead of four Acroyear, the series was split into two Acroyear figures (AX-21 AcroPhantom and AX-22 AcroMedalg) and two Acro Lady figures (AL-21 AcroElsa and AL-22 AcroPlana). Acroyear X-2 followed the same sci-fi / fantasy theme of the Acroyear X and Acro Lady series with elements from many of the recent popular Japanese anime and manga.

AX-21 AcroPhantom was the only figure in the X-2 series that did not have some kind of new tooling for the body. However, Phantom was not without a new material, his armor instead of the chrome parts was made with rubber PVC. The use of rubber suit gave the designer more flexibility but as with most soft materials there always problem with fit. The suit overall was very well made and fit well to body with little or no trouble, the problem came in when one try to connect the chrome accessories like his weapon and his necklace piece to the suit. AcroPhantom had clear body (this is the third clear body for the Acroyear side) with blue "tattoos" flame design. The decision for the clear body was probably to match his "phantom" name. His head design was very interesting with clear piece that fit atop his head (to give him some reference to AcroScorl, but he remind me of Hakaider). The decoration on his body was a bit too light and doesn't show up well which was too bad since he has such a nice design motif. Phantom came with only one accessory his hammer called Death-Grave. The weapon was an obvious reference to a certain popular anime. Death-Grave can be reconfigured into a "wheelchair" trike for Phantom but it look rather goofy than menacing. Overall AcroPhantom probably has the coolest design but he is rather bland and not as interesting as the other three Acroyear X-2 figures.
