Black Tiger Tank features flashing
light and can seat two Microman figures one on extendable missile
launcher seat and another in driver seat. The tank is fully
motorized with spinning turret and recoil action on the barrels.
During the last year of the original Microman
series, Takara released two remnants of the Rescue Microman vehicles - the
Black Tiger Tank and the Rolling Thunder.
Black Tiger Tank
Black Tiger Tank was very design with
different purpose than the previous Rescue Command vehicles. Last year Rescue
vehicles were built as search and rescue type vehicle, Black Tiger tank
however was obviously design for one purpose alone - destroy the Death
Marcks & Death King. Like most play-sets released during the
second half of Rescue Series and Punch Series, it came with exclusive
Microman figure. The figure that included with Black Tiger was a
dark olive green color M26X type. The figure was not named nor
designated by Takara. The dark green color make him look a lot like
army tank commander than a Rescue Crew.
The tank is motorized and it has two modes
of operation. The first one is stationary firing mode - when
activate the light flashes, turret spins and twin barrel recoils.
The second mode is activated by lifting up the side wheels which causes
the vehicle to move with bump-and-go mechanism. Black Tiger
also comes with a missile launcher mount on extendable seat locates next
to driver seat. The tank also has an add-on figure stands part that
can be add to the back of the tank which along with numerous 5mm pegs on
the tank turns it into a personnel carrier.
