About MicroVolts

Now, toy figures around the world are engaged in an all-out war for valuable battery resources and supremacy of the Micro World.? All we can do now is stay out of their way and wait for a champion to be declared!? Featuring a ton of weapons, fresh character designs, and a huge list of customization features,
