Microman

Postby Bryce » Fri Jun 24, 2005 12:31 pm

Can anyone give me a brief overview of Microman? I know this kind of like giving a brief history of the rise and fall of the Roman Empoire but could someone try to go over the important parts? I know nothing about the subject but am really intreasted.

Well, apparently they used to make kinda wimpy articulated spacy looking figures. I have no idea what they are or what their story is but now the articulation ROCKS! Pretty much really small Marvel Legends, and they make great Ant-Man customs. That's about as helpful as I can be.

Here's a little more info. They appear to be imports from Japan that are being released by Diamond. Some of the names seem to be the same from the old Micronauts series that was released by Mego in the late 70's. I'm not sure what the connection is.

Here's some links with pics from Diamond's site:

We may eventually get them, but we don't deal in the newer toys.

Thanks that claifies a lot. Was anybody here around when the Micronauts first came out? I just missed this one. I was under the impression that the Micronauts was THE big thing back then.
