Titan Command car came
in Gimca style box which is very similar to Microman Titan Command
box. These Titan cars were designated as FMB because they came
with Frame, Motor and Battery units. (Microman Titan Commands were
designated as FT since it came with a Frame and a Titan)
"sci-fi" style cars, Takara also produce real world style
Gimca slot cars. Along with cars, Takara also sold numerous slot
cars accessories under Gimca brand.
Each car came with
clear backing sticker sheet.
In 1977 Takara also sold Titan Command Cars
separately under Gimca FMB label. These Titan cars basically shared
the same body as the one that came with Microman Titan Command figures
however it came with wheel accessories for the slot car track.
It seems Takara sold these Gimca Titan
Command Cars as "prototype" or "first run" cars since
they all came in "bare metal" finished. .Each car also had
slot car type bottom (with two metal tabs for electrical contact), a motor
adjustable front wheels complete with real rubber tires. The rear
wheels also have battery compartment for small camera battery. Takara
also included with each car a dry cell battery compartment unit that can be
mount on top of these Titan Command Cars.
