Excerpts of Microman 2004 story from Neko Zero One Mook as translated by Mr. Tomoyoshi Araki.





Microman 2004


Time has flown by since the birth of Microman in 1974. Now, in 2004, he has returned to us in a new form. We entrust him to the care of those who have a child's heart in order to explore the unforeseeable future.

Takara official site for Microman 2004


With the success of Microman 2003 line, the series returned in 2004 as "Microman 2004". The year also marked the 30th Anniversary of Microman series and Takara returned Microman series back to its original root as a "micro" version of the Henshin Cyborg. The 2004 series, which used the same amazing new body pioneered with Micro Force series, extended Microman line to the next level with bigger accessories, well thought out designs and even a new Acroyear series called Acroyear X based on the King Walder (Cyborg enemy) designs.

Unlike the 2003 series which appeared to be just a test market series, Takara supported the new series with new website, CGI artworks and even a full background story booklet. Takara also promoted the new series with tie-in products and even a historical anniversary set with the Transformers line. Beside the standard Microman line-up, Takara also expanded 2003 Micro Size Action Figure Tatsunoko Fight into full line of costume hero figure called Micro Action Series. The 2004 series even more so than the limited 2003 line, really turned Microman line into its original intention as a miniature version of the 12" Henshin Cyborg. Also using their experience with Cy-Girls line, Takara also released female versions of Micro Force and, for the first time, true female versions of Acroyear called Acro Lady.

With the continue success of the new series, Takara followed up with Machine Force series which sold as figure & vehicle set. The second half of the year saw many more Microman series including deluxe version of Micro Action called Micro Action EX that came with cloth costume just like the old Cyborg but in 10cm size and Microman vehicle & figure set called Bio-Machines series. Takara also released few more exclusives most notably was the Neko Mook set which consisted of Microman 2004 Mook and one of the two exclusive Mission Force Microman figures. Takara also released for the first time exclusive Microman that were sold outside of Japan market. (They were sold at 2004 SDCC at Takara USA booth) For the remaining of 2004 look like it's going to be quite busy time for Microman. The line up including more Micro Action EX from the upcoming Godzilla movie, Microman Military Force, a series of low price Microman clone troopers and a follow up to Acroyear-X and Acro Lady series.
