Replica Microman M14X was
sold in an individual window box. The box was also made to look
like the original 1976 packaging for the Spy Magician.

Takara reissue the M13X (first type SpyMagician). Unlike the
original, the insert tray inside the box are not color but rather clear
plastic. Takara included all the accessories that come with
the original - Spy bracelets, Magician wands and the L-type connector.

two are off-white. Takara however only included 2 sets of

train others Microman to become SpyMagician and give them the special
wand and bracelet when they complete the training to signify SpyMagician

time included color matching stands for these figures. They would
later do this for all the subsequence Replica Microman. (With the
exception of MicroKnight since their cases built in figure stand)
