Review by JoshB
This is one of 3 different colors of the regular release of Demon Acroyer. There was a wide release of a red and blue version, as well as five more (White, Black, Pink, Purple and Yellow) as exclusive toys given out at the 1999 Tokyo Toy Festival. I picked this guy up from a street cart vendor in Tokyo in 2003 for 300 yen. My guess is that they didn't sell well.
Demon Acroyer stands 9 cm tall and comes with a BB launching ball fist, as well as several magnetic points of attachment. He can attach to any metal surface, as well as to other Microman Magne Power figures.
Demon Acroyer uses a ball joint method for articulation. the result is an extremely poseable figure. It even has a waist joint. One glaring error though is the ankles. The prototype Demon Acroyer's had jointed ankles but due to production costs these were molded into one piece. The resulting ankle is awkward and fragile.
