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!
