Stealth Heli and Microman Clark
Clark & Cain"
Magne Clark and Magne Cain had very interesting head designs and they
were the only two Microman released by Takara so far to sport facial
included the original gun accessories from the Micro Change version.
Chromed gun accessory was common parts for the New Microman and Diaclone
line which was carried over to the early Transformers toys.
Magne Power Microman
Powers Microman anime was exported to Korea between 2001-2002.
Licensed version of various Magne Power toys were produced and
sold in Korea. Korean version of Magne Power toys were nearly
identical to the Japanese versions with only minor differences
in some of the paint applications. Korean Microman toy came packaged in
box instead of blister card.
Sonic Bike was smoke clear cassette that can transformed into a bike for
Magne Microman. The toy like, Stealth Heli, came with exclusive Microman
Cain. Cain was a clear blue Magne Power Microman with brand new head
sculpt. Beside the color change (the original was solid black), Sonic Bike
was essentially the same toy as Micro Change version. Takara included the
gun accessory that was part of the original toy. The only two items that
got omitted were the backpack and the helmet. The backpack was used in the
original version as back support for Microman figure but was probably too
high for the much shorter Magne Power figure. Which bring us to the only
problem with reusing these two molds, the new figures were just way too
small for the vehicles that were originally designed for the bigger
original 10cm Microman figure. (They were made for Microman M011 Saram
(Command 2 Microman). However, these two toys were some of the best toys
from the Micro Change line-up and it was nice to see the toys get reissued
even if it was for the new Microman line.
