    Acroyear Amazon = Microman + Vinyl
    After months of being buried in work I finally have time to dive back into photography. And I've managed to score some figures that were my faves when I was a kid: Acroyear Amazons.

    These are just the best damned figures never released in the U.S. The crystal heads. The spinning cutter wings with the crazy patterns. And the vinyl sidekick.

    Only showing the blue one that I have with his vinyl companion and the green one. Will post some other pics of the red one I have with his monster in the next week or so. Check out some other loose figures I posted in my Flickr stream.

    Thanks! They were Japanese only Microman releases. No way these would ever get released by Mego for the Micronauts since they are so elaborate, colorful in that way that Japanese color schemes are just “crazy” and they came with that vinyl figure.

    That's going to be tough with the Takara Tomy x Convex x Secret Base deal going on :( One day license could work though, possibly

    Yeah, but what does that collab have to do with Gargamel who has done vinyl Microman stuff before?

    As I said a one day license could still work. Gargamel has only ever produced Takara related vinyl with the show license, no regular releases. For regular released Takara Tomy is currently using Secret Base (previously Takara had only done regular releases on the vintage and newer robotman vinyls, I'm not sure who made those) making them using or allowing a regular vinyl release from a different company highly unlikely.
