MicroBorg series was released in 1982 as
part of the New Microman Series. MicroBorg was equivalent of the
Titan Series from the Original Microman line. Like Titan
series, MicroBorg feature removable limbs, however instead of magnet
(Magnemo 8) system, Takara replaced it with simple peg system.
Takara also attempted to combine Microman toys with that of the new
emerging trend of plastic model kit toys. Each MicroBorg came
with model kit figure that can be painted for realistic look and can used
as "interchangeable" parts with the MicroBorg. The result
however was less than spectacular and there was no other follow up series.
MicroBorg "kits" for Cosmo
Plasma, Cosmo Inazuma and Cosmo Spark
Takara released three MicroBorg figures
which follow the "formula" of red, blue and green colors often
used in New Microman line for three members series. MicroBorg,
interestingly like the first series Titan, came with missiles firing
cannon backpack. Each figure also came with chrome gun.
MicroBorgs are about the same height as the Microman Punch and the later
Titans which are taller than the standard Microman. MicroBorg
used the same design hands as Microman Punch figures.
MicroBorg were once a normal Microman from MicroEarth but
they were confined in different dimension space by Acroyear using the Dimension Generator
they have stolen from Microman. MicroBorg altered themselves into new type of
cyborg by using the technology they acquired in the new dimension they were trapped
in. They managed to escape from the other dimension by using the triple warp beam to
bend space and crated the spatial distortion at sector MPK-193. The New Microman detected
the anomaly so they went to investigated and found the three MicroBorgs emerged from the
space warp. MicroBorgs then joined New Microman in their fight against
Cosmo Plasma - very
decisive, was the leader during the battle with Acroyear.
Cosmo Inazuma - good
mechanic and gifted in electronics.
Cosmo Spark - former
pilot of Micro Air Force.
