Microman Micro Sister Orga

The Micro Sister series from Takara’s Microman line brings a new base body that is even smaller than the average Microman figure. This series contains female figures with many accessories which use a 3mm port to allow for mixing and matching of weapon combinations.

This is the second sale item I bought off HLJ. The blister package is packed with lots of chrome bits and pieces.

Here are the accessories that came with the figure. Unlike typical Microman toys, Micro Sister Orga comes with 3 extra pairs of hands. She also has a clear display base with a clip. Not photographed is a pamphlet.

This is the figure sans accessories. It’s roughly 8cm tall so I had to zoom my camera quite a bit. A combination of chrome, black and clear parts are used. There are clear pieces over the head and chest for a cyborg appearance, as the character backstory mentions something along the lines of her being repaired after switching sides from the bad guys.

This is a quick shot of the articulation range of the figure. As expected from the Microman line, she comes with a ridiculous number of joints. These include the standard neck ball joint, shoulder swivel joints, double elbow joints, wrist joints on some of the hands, torso and waist ball joints, hip ball joints, double knee joints, triple ankle joints and toe joints.

Unfortunately, due to the inconsistent quality of the toy, one of her knees is totally loose and cannot hold any pose at all. The hands are made of soft plastic and pop off very easily.

The purple chrome parts are add-on armour pieces. The leg pieces are attached by disconnecting the thighs and calves and slipping the pieces on. The wrist gauntlets were a pain as they did not fit well and I had to shave the connections to allow the hands to fit in. Then, with the pieces in the way, the hands came off even more easily. The purple waist piece was piled on by disconnecting the waist.

Some weapon combinations. There are possibly more, but I was frustrated with the figure’s floppiness to think of any more.

As I mentioned just now, the biggest complaint I have with the figure is the loose knee joint. Because of that, I could not put the figure in any action pose. What’s the point of an action figure if it can’t hold itself up?

And in another case of cruel reality, the huge accessories weigh more than the figure itself so it’s also practically impossible to pose the figure in action poses with weapons. However, it still looks decent if carefully posed.
