Here si a custom that I created using a Microman military force figure and a Henshin Cyborg gashapon figure. I wanted to do this one because Microman started off as a version of Henshin Cyborg that was resized to 10 cm tall.
Here it is from another view. I actually painted the inside of the Microman figure to get the chest effect.
Here is the figure with the outer head taken off. To see more about Henshin Cyborg, please see the link below:

Here is a simple custom that I made from using a Microman material force figure and combining it with a repro Lady Command figure.
I wish that Takara had decided to reproduce the old figures from the 70's and 80's and then added on designs that were compatible with the older figures.
The reason I did this one is because it would also have been great if they had released the older figure designs and updated them with the material force bodies.

I found these toys on clearance at Toys R Us over a year ago. This one was probably about $5 and it seemd to be the same scale as the Microman figures I collect. Since I have always liked the Microchange series (many of which became the first Transformers) I decided to customize one similar to the Microriders of old.
Here it is transformed into bike mode. I think it looks good in both modes. While I like Transformers, it is important to me that they look good in both modes. If not, I just won't purchase it.
Here is the view from the front. I used some paint and some foil decals to change up the Raptor. I used an existing Microman head, foild decals and some Microman material force figures to create the Rider.
