The toy came with white rip-cord and
a hand held base.
Despite the toy cheap status, it was
featured in Microman manga when Akira send Microman Jesse to look for
Toward the end of 1975, Takara released a rip-cord
toy call Microman Spy-Heli. Spy-Heli was a low cost toy that used
rip-cord to power the helicopter blade. The helicopter was constructed
from cheap lightweight styrene plastic and must be assemble together.
Takara included a rip cord and a hand held base unit plus a colorful sticker
Spy Heli toy was probably the forerunner to Takara
upcoming Spy Magician Series. The toy sticker had the early version of
Spy Magician bird emblem, and the toy was also package in light green color
box, the same color that Takara would used for 1976 Spy Magician series
While Spy-Heli was a cheap looking toy, it actually
worked pretty well. The rip-cord was very powerful and can really send
Spy-Heli high up in the air. The vehicle came with seat for a Microman
figure complete with handle bars and 5mm peg to hold the figure in place
while Spy-Heli flew through the air.
