2004 came in beautifully done removable blister card
style packaging. The backing card had very nice picture
of the toy with all the accessories on display in the
blister window. As a nice touch, the blister had the
"O" design (in MICROMAN logo) molded on. While
the cylinder tube 2003 series was nice and compact, the
new blister was definitely more attractive looking.

the newer Microman figures and one for the vintage
figures with 5mm port.
MF2-04 Automaster Ryan was the fourth and last member of the Master Force
series. Ryan was the ground surface expert of the team. (Master Force
theme followed the four method of travel - air, underground, water and
surface). Microman Ryan shared the same new Microman core body with the
other figures in the series (The same body debuted with last year Micro
Force and Tatsunoko Fight! Microman 2003 line). He had clear green body with
white paint highlight. Clear green was another classic Microman color
scheme dated back to the first Titan series and look great on the new
Micro Force body. Ryan face was concealed behind a face mask that cover
most of his face. His chest had black emblem that resemble his armor
Automaster Ryan armor was
a futuristic bike with
beautiful chrome finished and clear green wheels. The bike transform
into armor for Ryan when not in vehicle mode. His armor probably had the
coolest alternate mode of the four Master Force design. The bike while a
little small was a very welcome addition to the new 2004 Microman
series. In armor mode, the cycle split in halves and formed the leg
armor for Ryan while the remaining parts formed his chest armor. The
design was nicely done though due to the used of PVC part there was some
slight fit problem in the armor mode on the this particular sample. The
clear green part that form front chest did not align properly with the
chrome parts, however, the armor do fit perfectly and snugly and there
was no problem with parts falling off or loose fitting section. As
with other Microman 2004 figures, Automaster Ryan had several small delicate
parts so the toy was clearly not meant for young children. In vehicle
mode, the armor form a small compact but functional light cycle-like
design. Bike and cycle toys had long been part of Microman line both old
and new so Ryan motorcycle design fit perfectly into the new line.
Automaster Ryan was probably the "coolest" looking of the four Microman Master Force
figures and one with the best armor accessory. Ryan had very nice clear
green and white color scheme (one of my favorite Microman color scheme).
The clear green was lighter and "brighter" than the early
prototype pictures. Ryan's armor had small delicate parts, and some fit
problem, but overall the design was very well done with most of his parts
fit securely on his body and the motorcycle form was an excellent
alternate mode for the figure.
