Titan Space Knight Story
The Titans searched the Titan moon
for the possibility of more Microman still trap in their hibernation
crystal prism. They soon discovered fossilized crystal prism of
Titan Microman in the tail dust of Micro-Comet that had crashed on the
surface. The life-support system inside had already stop but
Titans using advance technology revived the new companions from the
crystal prism that were still confined in the meteorite. The new
Titan became known as Titan Space Knight. (May be Takara was
implying that these guys were revived using the android technology of
Takara released Titan Space Knight Series in
1978. Titan Space Knight would became the last of the Titan Series for
the original Microman line. Titan Space Knight Series consisted of
only four different toys - two new Titan figures Space Knight T531 Adonis & T532
Antarus, and repaint of Titan Dober and Magne Condor which were given new
designation as T541 Space Dober and T551 Space Condor.
Titan Space Knight T531 Adonis
Titan Space Knight design was a big change from the
previous year series - the Titan Commands. Titan Space Knight no
longer had the robot-like blocky design and the figure even came with
Microman style hands much like the first two Titan series. The most
significant change however was the lack of Magnemo-8 ball for the legs,
instead the waist and pelvic were joined together via Magnemo-8 joint.
Titan Space Knight actually looked a lot like a Titan version of
Arden. The figure even came with 5mm port in the chest much like the
Arden. Titan Space Knight was also very tall (just like the
Arden) and stood almost 14 cm tall. The head also changed from the square
robotic look to more of a humanoid cyborg head. The head actually appear to
be very similar in design to Timanic series that was also produced by Takara
around the same time.
Takara released two Titan Space Knights - T531 Adonis
(shown here) in white and blue color scheme and T532 Antarus in yellow and
black. Another interesting feature was the fact that the two Titans
came with chrome finished lower legs and feet.

Titan Space Knight, liked all the previous Titan
toys, came with several of the accessories for the figure. The first
set of accessories used Magnemo-8 ball joint and can be used to replaced
Titan limbs and turn him into a plane. The second set of accessories
used the 5mm connectors and turn Titan into flying human-missile launcher.
