Micronauts from Wards 1978 Catalog

I haven’t posted anything on Micronauts in ages. I loved these toys, but the only time I got to play with them was at my cousin’s house.

My cousin had the Micronaut Battle Cruiser. That was very cool. He also something similar to the Giant Acroyear but they were called Shogun Warriors.

I have been looking at purchasing some of these on Ebay. I want to have a collection of 70s toys for a display, but these toys always seem so costly now.

Micronauts were small (sometimes large) plastic figures that had interchangeable parts. They had holes in their body that various pieces could plug into. You could literally take the wings off of a vehicle and plug them into one of the people. I think the whole concept was ingenious and lead to endless possibilities of combinations.

I did not have any of these but my cousin did. He probably had every single Micronaut vehicle and figure that was produced.  His parents even built him and entire Micronaut city one year for Christmas. The city was so big it was probably the size of two ping pong tables. It even used different household items like a two liter plastic bottle transformed into a lite rail system.

They were a lot of fun to play with.
