Pistola Robot P38 (Black Version). Source: eBay

In 1984 alongside Takaras Diaclone Car Robot series, GiG also imported a good chunk of Takaras Micro Change toy line. Gone were the references to the Micro Change name and in its place was the Trasformer name on all the boxes. The figures however kept their MC designation numbers. Other than the Trasformer name ad the Italian text, the boxes were identical to the original Japanese counterparts.
