In mid 2004, with Microman 2004 series enjoyed good success, Takara announced plan to add a new forth series in addition to the three regular line-up (Microman, Micro Action and Material Force). The latest series put an interesting spin on Microman and harkens the line back to its original root of the Henshin Cyborg costumed hero series. The series was called Kiguru which translated as "costumed actor" combined Microman figure with real costume outfit. What make the series even more interesting was the fact that the first Kiguru-Microman series was based on Toho Studio's venerable  Godzilla series (which reached 50th anniversary milestone in 2004). Instead of blank body, Takara cleverly included a full fledge Microman figure with each rubber monster costume suit. Takara has yet to announce any future series aside from the initial seven figures all of which were based on characters from the Godzilla property.
