figure came with clear capsule.
The set came packaged in
the same style small window box as the Toys R Us Solid Mode M10X
set. The box was, however, changed to B&W scheme
Takara released special versions of M10X

in special colors as a tribute to Henshin Cyborg line from which Microman
originated from. M101 George was done in flesh tone color to
represent Combat Joe (GI Joe), which the original Henshin Cyborg body was based
on. M102 Microman was done in semi-clear white to represent the first
Cyborg. M103 was done in clear purple to represent the villain King
Walder. ,and M104 was done in smoke color to represent the last of the
original Henshin Cyborg series - Android A.

The set was sold during Microman Toys
Exhibits at Misukoshi Store between 12/26/1999 to 1/9/2000. While there
were already too many variants of the M10X, this set
however had special historical significance for the Microman line which
made them very cool. It was really too bad that this set received
with very little interest among Microman collectors. Microman
Founders in Takara Historical Colors Set was rumored to be limited to just
around 1000 sets.
