Micro Collection 4-up Hardcopies
All micro figures were sculped at 4x their produced size in order to achieve all the detail possible. These 4-ups were then reduced using special equitment and castings made for production. Note the green color of the urethane which was the color actually used back then. Reproductions of these 4-ups have now appeared and are cast in blue. All original 4-ups were cast in green (or found detailed like the 4-up FX-7). These 3 are shown alongside their unpainted production counterparts. They are called hard copies because of the heavy material they are made of.
