Takara began new year and new millennium with a very small line up for new Microman series called the LED Powers. The Microman anime was not doing well and had been canceled which probably resulted in this much reduce line-up.  Takara moved to support Microman line with anime show prove to be too costly and by late Summer 1999 the sale of Microman toys had plummeted. By the end of fall 1999 Takara had greatly reduced the production of Super Microman series to avoid excess stock of toys.  Takara saw a rebounded in sale of Microman line after released of Super Microman and Magne Arden, they decided to continue Microman line but only in limited fashion.  Takara announced that the toy will still be support by the manga in Bom Bom comic.

- from Magne Power Package

Microman LED Powers appeared to be much more similar to their cousin the Henshin Cyborg. The figure now have LED light in their chest (much like recent Neo Henshin Cyborg) which can be activate by power backpack. The package was a lot smaller (2/3 the size of Magne Power blister card), but the blister card fold out to reveal bio information about the figure.  The most interesting of note about the new line,  is the new catalog.  The new catalog is now much larger in size and have more story background inside very much like the original Microman catalog from 1970's. Perhaps Takara want to move from the costly anime tie-in to the old style catalog story  driven toy line.



Fifteen years after the Big Battle of 2015,a strange phenomenon has occurred in S. American.   Dr. Kohei (the boy Kohei has become a professor)  send Arthur and Walt to another dimension via the pyramid in S. America  in order to acquire information on new source of energy call LEDcium.   Izam was then send to S. America to acquire LEDcium elements to power the new LEDcium technology but was intercept by Vampiser.  Arthur and Walt went to help and thus begin a new battle for LED power.   Microman incorporate LEDcium power in their new armor and transform into Microman LED Powers.   In the meantime, the President Acroyer who has also acquired LED Powers was attack by mysterious entity call Beetle Trooper and was split in half by it's power sword.  Because of the LEDcium power, each half of President Acroyer was transform into LED Powers Acroyer call Acroyer-Hyde (red) and Acroyer-Jekyll (blue). Each LED Acroyers come with Acro-Spears and Acro-Blades (Hyde-Blade and Jekyll-Blade), and bug-like energy backpack.
