    I posted this over at VI but I thought there might be some interest here too as well (prepare for some load time on this one):



    Next Microman Power Up Set. I shot a ton of pics of this because there is incredibly little coverage of this set anywhere online. Actually until I opened the box today I had only see pretty small pics of it and nothing really detailing the insides with the exception of one or two of the suits pictured in Takara SF Land book for example. At one point I had entertained the idea of being able to build this set piece by piece but roughly 15 years into that attempt I had 2 capes and one figure. Enjoy!

    :shock: :shock: Holy crap, thank you for posting this! I've never seen it either, and it is gorgeous! You should make sure Microforever gets at least a couple shots for their archive. Now I finally know where the loose blue and silver armor part on YJA came from! You really need a set of loose guys to go with this so you can kit out a whole team of super dudes.

    Thanks all. It's already been offered to loan out to microforever.com. Yeah it is sort of looks like a Centaurion Ancestor set. Centaurions use 5mm pegs like most Takara SF Land toys too incidentally .

    Thank you Carl! Hi Fusaki , no there was no paperwork included in the box. To the best of my knowledge there wasn't any packed in. Doesn't look like there is a space for it unless it was just slid in the back.

    Really stellar Adam. Been wanting that one for a while... but too much a cheap skate. I finally got the uniquer gift set... up next work on the acro navy set... Would be cool to see all three of these stacked up on top of each other. Wonder if the boxes are the same size?

    I missed this thread. Those clip on armors are epic, as is the clear green and silver dude. I can see why they didn't do more capes, lol!

    Hahaha I'm with you on the cheap skate angle. It took me forever and it was actually a good friend that found it and bought it for me as it saw it for crazy cheap and knew I was after it for so long. I'd love to have the navy and uniquers too. I don't have those to stack up though sadly haha.

    More capes would have been awesome! At least the New Acroyear and Cosmo Satan Ardens had capes!

    Haha...I'm actually quite grateful they reserved the capes mainly for Acroyears and Ardens!

    I missed this post the first time around, too. DAMN, hard to imagine a more bad ass set. If you must step outside of sofubi, and we all must from time to time, this is the way to do it!

    Congrats.
