(aka Casshan) was an anime character created by Tatsunoko studio back in the
early 1970's. Casshan got remade (like many of other classic
Tatsunoko anime) in 1990's. Casshan was a cyborg being with the mission to save the world from the evil
robot - Black King. A big
budget live action movie version of Casshern (with reworked
story line) was released on April 24, 2004 and this version of
Microman Casshern was based on the movie character design.

on clear plastic with two styles of pegs - one for

released Microman MA-06 Casshern in April of 2004. The figure was
released along with the two Microman Batman figures (MA-07 & MA-08
in the now expanded Micro Action Series. This version of Casshern was
based on the new live action movie character. While Casshern was not new
to the Micro Action line, this was the first figure in the series to be
based on the live action show. (All the other characters in Micro Action
series were based on either anime or comic designs.) The new costume
design for Casshern movie made him more like a white ninja and
being a cyborg, I guess the character do fit well into this new
"costume" series of Microman 2004.
head gear option, the figure also came with a sword and two hilt that
attached to the back pelvic section. The figure also included extra set
of hands (molded in matching color). Like the other recent releases, the
hands now came on a holding "tree" to keep them in place while
not being used. Casshern was probably the most
"basic" of the three new Micro Action Series addition but the
figure was pretty fun to play with. The simplistic design allowed for
some very cool poses in various positions. Overall not a bad
action-figure and first Microman figure to be based on live action show
made for a cool addition to any Microman collection.
