Each Robotman - Ace , Baron and
Cross came with their own unique signature weapon.
Robotman Ace came with
red launching Morning Star. Baron came with
black launching Jumbo Fist. Cross came with
blue launching Crossbow.
Each Robotman also came
with three additional weapon attachments which were common to all three
figure - a saber, cannon and claw.
Robo Robotman has two magnet ports in their back.
Along with the new
Microman, Takara also released new Robotman, three to be exact - Robotman Ace, Robotman
Baron, and Robotman Cross. Instead of Henshin
Cyborg 5mm connectors, the new Robotman design are based
on the Magnemo-11 toys (Geeg or Baron Karza magnetic joint type) The obvious difference is the size, the new Robotman is only 6"
tall and do not have chest cockpit like the original Robotman.
013 Robotman Ace
The new Robotman borrowed heavily from
many mecha designs from Evangelion organic look to the blocky Ranger Zord
design. Each of the new Robotman shared the same basic body but with
different heads and colors. Each Robotman came with four weapon attachments -
saber, claw hand, cannon and a special unique weapon. While
the overall design of these figures did not break any new ground they
however are very cool looking robots and probably some of the best toys
that came out of the Magne Power Series. Takara followed the
Robotman with two more magnemo-11 type toys - new Magne Titans and Magne
Animals. During the second half of 1999, Takara would later
released two larger Robotman - Dean and Endeavor and new Giant
Acroyear. It was unfortunate that these magnemo-11 toys did not
catch on since they are extremely interchangeable and they are probably
the most innovative play mechanics to ever came out from Takara design
house.(See Also - Robotman Dean,
Robotman Endeavor and New Giant Acroyear)

Robotman Story (translated from BomBom Magazine by
Takeyuchi Shoyechi - via Ray Miller)
"The Hope of the future, built by the science power of
MicroEarth. Super-Microsium cores brought from MicroEarth were merged with
materials to from three Magne Robo : the Robotman. They synchronize with Microman
via telepathy, and think by their own super AI"
Robotman Ace: made of silicon merged with
SuperMicrosium. Mainly operated with Microman Arthur. Good at acceleration and
Robotman Baron: made of heavy metals
merged with SuperMicrosium. Excellent durability
and power. Poor acceleration but have
the highest top speed of all three Robotman. Interact mainly with Odin or Edison.
Robotman Cross: made of liquid water merged with
SuperMicrosium. Have the largest energy storage among the three. Good at
sensing, scouting and sniper attack. Interact mainly with Izam or Walt.
