Perfect Shining figures came in
bigger blister cards than the previous Shining Tector figures.
L-27 Perfect Shining Zett
L-28 Perfect Shining Solomon
L-29 Perfect Shining Shakunetsu
Each figure came with a complete set
of Tector armors and mini-comic book. Each comic book contains the
same basic story line with slight variations between them specific to
Perfect Shining comics/catalogs.
released the last three figures of LED Powers Series for the year 2000 on
December 27th. As expected the last three "Perfect
Shining" figures were repaint of the previously released
figures. L-27 Perfect Shining Zett is Master Laser Zett repainted with
brown trim instead of red and he came with complete set of Tector Armors
in purple. L-28 Perfect Shining Solomon is Master Laser Solomon with
metallic green trim instead of blue with blue Tector Armors.
L-29 Perfect Shining Shakunetsu is a clear orange Laser Shakunetsu with
gold trim and orange Tector Armors.
the previous Shining Tector figures (L-22 to L-25), Takara did not give
these figures new helmet and painted face or new pelvic with Shining
Powers Belt. These figures were simply repaints Laser figures with Tector Armors
added as accessories. With the new Microman series coming to an end
due to financial difficulty at Takara, Perfect Shining probably will be
the last series for the LED Powers line. Takara planed two more
Perfect Shining figures, both of which were exclusive premiums.
The first one was Perfect Shining Gold Arthur which will be prize giving
out as drawing for Shining Promotion. There were only 100 prizes
giving out to lucky winner. The second one was Perfect Shining Laser
Dark which will be Toys R Us exclusive.
also included mini-comic/catalog with each figures. While all three
comics contain similar story line, each comic has slight variation of the
story line arc for each of the three characters. Between
page 3 to page 9, the comics contain artworks and stories unique to each
figures. All three characters went out separately to find
Microman Arthur (who was being plummeted by Acroyer President Zenon) and
they each ran into one of the three mechanical clones of Zenon - Machine
Shadows. (So there were more than one Machine Shadow).
While Master Zett and Master Solomon made a quick work of Machine Shadows
after they transformed into Perfect Shining modes, Laser Shakunetsu took some
beating before taking out Machine Shadow. (Probably to imply that
Shakunetsu powers and skills were not yet at the "Master"
Microman level) Zett and Solomon saved Arthur from Zenon final
death blow and at that moment Shakunetsu crashed through the wall and gave
Arthur his Shining Belt. They then all transformed into Perfect
Shining mode and destroyed President Zenon....thus finally ended the LED
