Metallic Mode M10X-S
came in black capsules.
The second released of Metallic Edition
M10X-S came with red capsules. The figures and package were
to the first released.
Metallic Edition M10X-S came in
mailer box. Takara gave the designation a -S suffix.
The packaging were the same for both 1st and 2nd releases.
Takara released special edition M10X barefoot
done in metallic colors for TV program "Trouble Chocolete" on TV
Asahi on November 5th 1999. The 25th Anniversary Metallic Sets
were offered for sale during the TV program and were limited to just 300 sets. Most of the collectors missed out
on the offer and many of the sets ended up in the hands of the dealers.
Next day Microman BBS was flooded with complain from many Microman
collectors that fond out after the fact about this particular offer.
Takara decided to offer Metallic Edition M10X-S for the second time during another
TV Asahi program on February 4th 2000 to appease the upset core collectors.
The second set was offered in the same manner but was now widely publicized.
The only difference between the first and second release was the color of
the capsule that the figure came in. The first set each Microman came in black capsule while the second set
each one came in red capsule. It was very nice to see Takara response to
customers request and made the set available for the second time. The
25th Anniversary Set Metallic Edition of Microman Founders was very
beautiful and probably the best of all the barefoot M10X
variants released by Takara.
