Grapple Set VP01-VP03
Microman Founders in Combat Joe
color. Look like naked Micromen.
The outfits came in small plastic
baggie with Takara logo (sticker).
||The first set in the Victory
Project is the Grapple Set. The set is basically three
Microman barefoot figure done in GI Joe color (flesh tone) with Cyborg
color head (gold, copper and blue chrome). VP0X series are based
on Microman original concept which is a miniature Henshin
Cyborg. The first three are supposed to represent copper,
gold and blue cyborg. The set was made by small company call
Altimet and they were for sale at the Winter 2000 Super Fest toy show.
The body come inside regular M10X type Microman
capsules - copper in white, gold in black and blue in red.
Each also come with karate outfits - copper with red outfit, gold with
black outfit and blue with white outfit.
The hand cuffs on VP barefoot fit very snug unlike the
reissued M10X barefoot which tend to fall off. The costume fit
very nicely though take some adjustment to fit properly. It
seems Takara have reengineer the body parts a little so they have less
tendency to fall into pieces when one trying to outfit them with
Here is blue one in his white Karate
outfit. My wife starts to give me a funny look so I stop with just
one (also they are quite difficult to put on).
