"The Power Up of Robotman" was sold at Nagoya Matsusaka store during the Robot Station 2002 event on May 1st, 2002.

"The Power Up of Robotman" Set consisted of chrome plated Microman Spy Magician M13X Type and all white color Acroyear A30X Type. The set was a follow up to last year "Historical Series" - "Birth of Acroyear". The history behind the Robotman's Power-Up set was set around the time of Robotman getting the upgrade. Microman sense an imminent war with Acroyear, decided that they need to improve Robotman's speed and power so they can protect Earth. In order to do this they used Spy Magician's technology to improve Robotman's artificial brain. By using special chip and motherboard logic, they could increase Robotman's throughput of powers. However, the chip was very unstable and in order to install the chip the process has to be done in special field. Head of the project, Douglas decided to undertake the work of installing the chip. He devised special body coating that allowed him to safely work in the field. However, during that time the alarm was sound and an intruder appeared inside Microman's base. The intruder was Acroyear using special mode that allowed him to blend with the color of the lab base (white).

Both figures in this set were quite beautiful, especially the chrome M13X Douglas since he was reminiscence of the old premium gold plated M131.  The all white version of Acroyear was quite unusual and a big contrast from the normal black color.
