Microman Mission Force MFX-01Sword Warrior Jin and MFX-02 Shield Warrior Xiang-ni Exclusive was yet another collaboration project, this time it was between Takara and Neko (publisher of Quanto and Zero One magazine). Jin and Xiang-ni were the winning designs pick from Zero One Magazine contest. (Zero One was a subscription-base magazine about video games and toys). The figure was sold with special magazine book (known as "Mook" in Japan) called Microman 2004 Perfect Book Magazine Zero One. There were two versions of the books; Side Sword came with Sword Warrior "Jin" and Side Shield came with Shield Healer Xiang-ni. The book contained CG Photo Story of Microman 2004 and short story (a novella) about Jin & Xiang-ni Mission Force Team. The book also included special Microman comic and catalog checklist for Microman 2004 series. The book unfortunately was produced in very limited numbers (probably because the project was plan back before 2004 line became so popular) and they were quickly sold out in Japan.

Microman Jin and Xiang-ni were probably two of the more better though out and design exclusive figures for 2004 line. Microman Sword Warrior "Jin" and Shield Healer "Xiang-ni" were members of Microman Mission Force Team - a Rapid Response Force design to deal with Acroyear and spread of Acro-Virus. Side Shield of the team was Shield Healer "Xiang-ni". She was semi-translucent white Lady Microman with orange color trims and highlights. Her left arm has numerical "068" and her left leg has "Shield Healer" emblem along with M.I.C.R. logo. (She also has some slogan or team motto like "Jin" but they are too small of a print to read). Xiang-ni came only with small numbers of accessories but they work well for the figure. Her armor was basically a halter top called Angel Amulet with small button on the left side to activate the shield projector that filter out the deadly Acro-Virus. She also came with a small Notepad computer called Microm505 which allowed her to connect directly into M.I.C.R. Main Computer to access data on the Acro-Virus. The "angel" and "shield" were clearly the references to the Lady Command Microman from 1970's series. Xiang-ni also came with Microman stand and six extra pairs of hands just like other Lady Microman figure.
