TAKARA-TOMY, in 2007, announces new core Microman series.  This new series dubbed "Wrecker Signa Project" is a big departure from the previous Micro Force series.  Instead of using comics and CG story, the line is being combine with tokukatsu (Japanese live-action show) using young Japanese teen idol girls as a way to attract interest (the show is clearly gear toward young Japanese male.  The heroes and heroines in the show use Microman designs as inspirational and Microman toys even appear in the series as prop.  This new direction is most likely to reduce cost and hope to take Microman to main-stream audience.  With TAKARA division of TOMY in disarray after the merger and restructuring may be this is probably the best we can hope to get aside from the line being cancel completely.



MWS-03 is the third set in this new Wrecker Signa Project series.  The set includes two Microman figures this time instead of Microlady.  The figures are the male Wrecker Signa Microman Orion and the bad guy "Acro" Origamu. Both figures are repaint of previously released Microman Assassin Force and XADO series from 2006. Orion reused Microman Shouma armors and Origamu has repaint version of AcroHidou.  Orion like Microlady W-Signa has the similar design as live action show like Ultraman and Power Ranger.


Wrecker Signa Origamu is the first bad guy (probably the only one) for the Signa series.  Origamu is essentially repaint version of Hidou with painted armors. The body is just plain black Microman Material Force body with painted feet. The new paint job is actually pretty nice looking but strangely instead of having a matching accessories, Takara-Tomy decided to have chrome weapon instead.




Microman Wrecker Signa although appear to be more like Micro Action line is actually part of core Microman series and a sequel to Microman Force series.  The figures are essentially repaint versions of previous Microman toys, so unless you are really into color variants or hard-core collectors these Signa figures offer nothing new to the line aside from the added live-action show featuring young Japanese teen idols.
