Microman BuildBase is the largest of all the Microman
bases. The BuildBase used the same building piece design as the Micronauts
City Series. A recent research by Micronauts collectors show the patent on the
Micronauts city actually belonging to Takara. Interestingly, in many
prototype pictures and early design, the BuildBase incorporate much of the Micronauts City
section such as the MegaCity parts which were shown connected to the main section of the
BuildBase. Perhaps Takara intended to release add-on sets for the Build Base
but the project was most likely cancel due to poor sale.. (We know how well the City
series did in the US). The prototype design also show a much more elaborate
base with details interior and elevator lift similar to Surveryor-3 base. The
mock up prototype however was shown using the elevator part from Road-Station
(Stratrastation) this was later replaced by the rubber band pulleys in the production
model. Takara did released several add-on toys for the BuildBase call PlayBuild
which consisted of BuildLancer, Build Bazooka and Build
Crane. By combining the BuildBase with Micronauts City parts
one can really make a big and elaborate Microman base or even a Microman Metropolis!

bunch of Microman upstarts. MagneArthur try to assure him that future of Micro
is in good hands.
Build Base comes equip with a big crane unit. (the
crane is fairly strong and lift up even a big part like the SpeedJumper ejection seat.)
