  • Micro Change Robot
  • MC-10 Cassette Man with all parts and accessories
  • Taiwan Takara c.1983

MicroForever! says:

Takara released MC-10 as part of the New Microman Micro Change Series in 1983. Micro Change were a series of Microman robots and vehicles that can disguise themselves as ordinary household items. In the case of MC-10 he was a Micro Change Robot disguised as a “Walkman” style portable cassette player. It came with clear plate that can be opened so the Micro Change Mini-Cassette can be placed inside

Cassette Man was the second largest robot in the Micro Change series that were released by Takara. It was also probably the most recognizable one next to the MC-13 UNCLE Gun Robo since this toy would eventually became one of the more popular Transformer toy – the Decepticon: Soundwave. (MC-13 became the infamous Megatron) The Deception symbol was base on Soundwave head. Soundwave version of the toy has “Cassette Man” and the “MC-10” designation removed from the chest
