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.



Acrolady Setsuna is Hidou's right hand person. Setsuna armor and motif are based on Japanese traditional outfit. She is suppose to be some kind of shaman that practice the dark arts. (The XADO are suppose to be some type of shadow conjurers and illusionists) Setsuna armors fit well but the joints on her are a little loose. She comes with parasol that can be used as weapon or convert into a fans (also use as weapons). Her chest armor fit very snugly but the clear "magic-flame" parts are a bit intrusive and easily get in the way when trying to put her in various pose. (Though the magic flames do look very cool on her). On my sample, the stave pointy part was screwed in crooked and was impossible to take apart so it was left as is. Her hairs also get in the way when she has her armor on.  Despite the minor problem with her accessories, Setsuna is a very beautiful figure in her "naked mode" her legs are adorn with gold Japanese kana (it's a poem) and her black and gold color scheme gives her very nice oriental design look.
