Micronauts is the North American name for the Microman toy line created by Japanese toy company Takara (later absorbed by TOMY). First released in Japan in 1974, Microman toys were imported to the United States by the Mego Corporation in 1976, under the "Micronauts" name. The line consisted of 3.75-inch-tall (9.5 cm) action figures, vehicles, robots, playsets, and accessories which used a universal, 5-millimetre (0.20 in) inter-connective design. Although the line was commercially successful, Mego cancelled it in 1980.
