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.  




The new Assassin Force Microman consist of AF-11 Shouma, AF-12 Kyoushiro and AF-13 Yume - a lone Microlady in the group. Unlike Acroyear side, Microlady use the same designation as the male team members. Assassins Force theme is darkness and light, the dual nature of these new Microman. On the surface they are just like any ordinary Microman, but secretly they are assassins that hunt down the Acroyears and oppose the XADO.

Microman Shouma

Shouma is a clear bluish-gray Microman Full Action Body type with silver and white trims. Like the other Assassin Force, Shouma comes with minimal armors and a single weapon - the double-necks guitar call "Dark Beat". Dark Beat has hidden sword inside the top part and a dagger tip claw-weapon in the lower neck. The guitar come attached to metal chain and is another "borrow" design from a popular anime. The armor and weapon set for Shouma fit well and the figure has nice joints and free of defects that plague many of the last year series.
