XADO & Assassins Story


One year has passed from the end of the war between Acroyear EXO and Micro-Humanoids. Micro-Humanoids and humans won the war and at last experience the freedom.

But now, they are under new hidden threat.  A new group has emerged after the war and slowly become the power center of Micro-humanoids. The group at first operate under the banner of "justice" and "order" but they slowly changes to "oppression" and "violent".

The mysterious leader of this power politics is Micro-humanoids named Hidou. He has two right hand persons that enforce his power a large Micro-humanoid named Muzan and a shaman lady named Setsuna.

Secretly, the three are actually Ancient Acroyear created by Emperor. They has ability to invade Micro-Humanoids body like a parasite and take over the body of Micro-Humanoids.

One outlaw team know the truth and are fighting back They called themselves...."The Assassins Force". This new Assassin Force is not an actual M.I.C.R. official Force team. While the Assassin Force in M.I.C.R. are out to eradicate the Resistance Microman that oppose the rule of Hidou and his gang. This new Assassins Force is a vigilante group that operate outside the law and they works only for the average Microman who are suffering under the violence, oppression of the new tyranny power that disguises as "justice". The Assassins Force are enforcers, judges and executioners.


Takara begin 2006 for the core Microman line with two new series in April. There are total of six new figures, three for Microman side and three for Acroyear side. Microman series are called the Assassins Force and are based on last year Microman Falcon Assassin Force concept. Acroyear series are called XADO (in keeping with the letter "x" theme). XADO is a pun on Japanese word "jado" which roughly translates to evil way or evil path. Both XADO and Assassins Force are the first Microman 200X to have all Japanese names and are heavily influenced by Japanese theme and designs.  




Acroyear XADO consist of AX-41 AcroHidou, AX-42 AcroMuzan and AL-41 AcroSuzetna. (Acrolady follow their own designation, unlike Microman side). All three Acroyears have Japanese motif with Japanese kana (letters) inscribed all over their bodies. The XADO, like the Assassin Force, follow the same design theme as last year 2-pack, Falcon & Manon where each figure only come with nominal amount of accessories.  However, while the accessories are limited in number, they are very well design and each set has numerous 3mm ports that allow for some nice interchangeable with either accessories from these series or from other Microman series.  This show that Microman figures do not need to be busy looking and loaded with accessories to be interesting.



Acroyear XADO AX-42 AcroMuzan is one of the right hand man of AcroHidou. He also disguise himself as "Microman" and comes with alternate humanoid head. AcroMuzan is a clear emerald green "Massive Type" Microman Full Action body. He is only the second figure in core Microman line to use the Massive Body Type. AcroMuzan's armor theme is medieval Japanese "kabuto" armor with centipede motif mixed in. Muzan is probably the most striking looking of the new series. His green and gold chromed trim armor along with his large saber are awesome designs. The armor fits well to the body, but the shoulder pieces make the articulations somewhat limited. The only problem is his large sword, which tend to not stay in place when mount on top of his helmet.  Overall, the figure is awesome and is highly recommended. It appears at least for these two series, Takara has finally address the recent quality control problems.
