 Micro Action Series MA-10 Catwoman came on the same style re-sealable blister card as the previous Micro Action releases. The card feature Catwoman logo along with comic book drawing of recent rendition of Catwoman. There was a Batman logo on the corner to denote that the character belong to Batman series.


Catwoman was a spin-off character from Batman comic book. Like many of the old comic character, Catwoman recently got a complete revamp with new look. 


Microman 2004 came with new style figure stand. The stand features Microman "Da Vinci" style logo emboss on clear plastic with two styles of pegs  - one for the newer Microman 2004 figures and one for the vintage figures with 5mm port.

Takara followed up the successful Microman Micro Action Batman series with three more figures from the Dark Knight comic license. The first was repaint of the previously released Batman figure and the other two were entirely new molds using the Microman female core body source. The first female character was, of course, Bat-Girl (which sold as a two-pack along with Batman repaint) and the other was Catwoman. Catwoman took the cancel Spiderman slot and was designated MA-10. (So it appeared all Micro Action will get MA designation regardless if they were male or female). Batman and Bat-Girl two-pack set was designated as MA-SP01 (while the Devilman & Sileen Manga versions two-packs got SP-02 numbering). Catwoman along with Batman & Bat-Girl were released on September 30th, 2004 together with Microman Biomachine series and Micro Action series Devilman & Sileen set. DC Direct had announced that they will be bringing Takara Microman Batman line to the US.

Takara Micro Action Series depicted the new modern version of Catwoman with black leather outfit and a goggle. (I have to admit that I am not a DC comic books fan and I know very little when it come to DC universe.) The body was based on the new Female Microman Full Action body. Takara had molded several new pieces just of this figure including new torso, and new feet. The female body source, while very nice, was never seem to be as refine as the male body. Overall, the figure was a decent rendition of the current Catwoman. Takara for some reason had decided to change the way the female body get assemble and the pelvic piece on all the female figures since Lady Microman Xiang-ni, were left loose and wiggle about. Although, this do not detract from the figure look, it can be quite distracting when posing the figure as the pelvic section got rattle around. Microman Catwoman came with special "cat claws" hands, but Takara also included standard Microman body hands (six pairs on the tree, and two on blister pack itself, since female Microman body came with one more pair than the male body). The figure also came with wipe, interchangeable feet with dagger shoes, and extra head so you can display her with or without the goggle.
