Packaging & Instruction


Microman Military Force series came in the smaller packaging than the previous Microman 2004 series. The packaging was very nice with clam-shell design that can be reseal by snapping the locking taps. The card backing had clean design with gray and white background and simple letterings which help the figure stand out inside the blister pack. The accessories (on sprue) were packed on the back side of the blister tray and can be clearly view. Since the blister can be reseal this made perfect storage for any accessories that not being used.



Military Force came packaged with new Microman catalog - "Infomercial Vol.03". The latest catalog feature Military Force series with nice lay out of their accessories.Microman 2004 Series - Microman Military Force


Microman Military Force Story

Dr. Burns became concern and began his own Military Force project for Microman. However, Acroyear Military Force invaded M.I.C.R. Lab and was able to capture Lady Microman Shina.

Microman New Stand


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


Microman 2004 Military Force series was released in Japan on December 3rd, 2004. The set was delay slightly from the original November release date. Military Force were not true Microman but actually battle droids created for Acroyear and Microman armies. There were total of eight different figures in the series with four (MF401-04) belong to Microman side and four (MF405-08) belong to the Acroyear side. The Microman and Acroyear Military Force figure each had distinctively different head designs with Microman Military Force head look like those crash dummy with two round eyes and simple mouth (a bit like C3P0), while the Acroyear had slightly more elaborate look with more menacing look. All eight shared the same newly retooled body based on Micro Full Action Body but with added 3mm ports (total of 18 ports) for used with the numerous "weapon set" accessories that included with each figure. There were total of four weapon set designs; M-01 and M-02 for Microman side and A-01 and A-03 for Acroyear side. Each of the weapon set came with two color variants - Gun Metal (chrome) and Black for total of eight different weapon set. The new Military Force body resembled a lot of the Beta Midget figures even the similar color schemes.

MF4-04 Virtual Task was the 4th of the Microman Military Force set. He came with dark gray body (with silver speckles) and clear green joints. (He is probably my favorite on the Microman side - just can't resist those clear green color). The clear joints gave the figure the appearance of having clear green inner parts and gave it a nice futuristic look. MF4-04 came with Black Version of M-02 Weapon Set. There was no pre-set instruction for these accessories and it seem the designers intended for them to be used for "custom" looks. There were some sample guide on what could be done with the accessories but overall these Weapon Set were pretty much intended to be left to one own imagination. Takara had clearly meant for this particular Microman series to be used for army building and for custom works with the low price point (800 Yen each, about $5-$6) along with the background story  that set them up as mass produce droid troopers. While these Military Force might not have the elaborate design as the previous series, the simple design made them one of the more fun and more durable set to actually "play" with. The ability to custom the look of these Microman figure was definitely a big plus.
