Each Microman Kit-Machine was sold
in a small box. The boxes were unique to each particular kit. (Shown
above is 049 Crab Dozer box) The toy came in kit-form and must be assemble.
Each Kit-Machine can transform into
"bug" mode. Beside these transformation modes, the five
Kit-Machines can be combine to form a giant power-suit. The
combination is pretty basic and involves attaching each kit together.

Takara released series of vehicles called
Microman Kit-Machines as a tribute to the first Microman toys from
1974. Magne Power Micro Kit-Machines were series of vehicle that came
in kit form and must be assemble. The assembly process were pretty
easy but time consuming especially when tried to apply all the delicate and
thin chrome stickers.

There were five kits, one for each of the
Magne Power main characters. The first kit was call Galac Hopper which
was clear red grass-hopper that transform into motorcycle. The second
kit was call Earth Jetter which was purple dragonfly that transform into
jet. The third one was call Micro Escargot which was clear blue snail
that transform into hover-craft. The fourth one was call Bulk Lifter
which was smoke clear beetle that can transform into a forklift. The
fifth one was call Crab Dozer which was a clear green crab that can
transform into a bulldozer. Takara gave each Kit-Machines names that
were very similar or the same as Microman vehicles from the old series.
Beside the simple self-transformation, the Kit-Machines can be combine
together to form a giant power suit walker for a Microman figure.
Microman Kit-Machines were very beautiful and were also highly details,
however because of their plastic kit aspect many collectors were not very
fond of them.
