Micronauts Action Figures & Toys history

Micronauts is the North American name for the Microman toy line created by Japanese toy company Takara (now part of TOMY). First released in Japan in 1974, Microman toys were imported to the USA by the Mego Corporation in 1976 and renamed "Micronauts." The line consisted of 3.75" action figures, vehicles, and robots that were known for their high poseability and innovative 5 mm interconnectivity.

Mego later produced their own original Micronauts toys called the Aliens series. The aliens basically shared 5mm compatibility with their Micronauts cousin but were design with glow in the dark brains instead of the chrome heads. Mego also produced several vehicles for the aliens. By the time Mego released the second series aliens the company was on the brink of bankruptcy. After Mego went bankrupt, the molds were sold to another company call Hourtoy which marketed the toy as The Inter-Changeables. Micronauts were also distributed with different packaging for Europe and Canada. The line was called 'I Micronauti' in Italy. The Italian 'I Micronauti' line had several toys that were never release in the States.

Takara produced small quantities of certain Series 1 & 2 products in Japan before all production was moved to Mego's facilities in Hong Kong. Takara also produced several Series 5 toys specifically for Italian distributer Gig's "i Micronauti" line after Mego collapsed.
