Reissue M12X come on a removable
blister card. The card backing design is the same as the reissue
Each figure come with a color
capsule unfortunately they are not the same color as the original
versions but rather the same set of capsule from the previously reissue
M11X. The only figure that happen to come with correct color
capsule is M124 Max.
Each figure comes with smoke clear
As a bonus Takara includes with each
M12X a pair of guns.
Takara did an excellent job with M12X
reproduction series. The figure is very close to the original
vintage version with only very slight different in the details which is
almost unnoticeable even when one put the them side by side. The
head, fortunately, is a brand new replica and is much better than the
one that came with Romando M13X Spy Magician. (M12X & M13X
share the same head design).
Takara also include a set of sticker
which is a good facsimile of the original sticker sheet.
Unfortunate, Takara decides to cut cost and give the Reissue M12X the
same set of capsules as the one that came with Reissue M11X.
This is a little upsetting since the original M122 come with a nice pink
capsule and M121 come with blue color. Aside from this minor
gripe, the M12X Reissues are solid replicas and Takara even included two
guns as accessories. The guns is a replica of the weapons from
Rescue Power-Up set.
Below is a close up picture of reissue
M122 and vintage M122. The reissue head is a little smaller than
the original and the details around the eyes are not quite as sharp,
however, Takara give the reissue hair even more details than the
vintage! The vintage heads were also done in dark chrome.
Another notable difference, is that the
vintage figures came with chest number stickers pre-applied. These
chest stickers are oval in shape and not trapezoid like the one that
came on the sticker sheet.
