The Micronauts Force Commander beget the Inter-changeables Captain Cosmo clone, and following the "silver" theme of the second series, the Captain got a nice new facelift that made it more distinguishable from it's two forefathers. Instead of being cast in white, the main figures body parts were cast in gray. The Captain had now gotten a stunning new identity.

The three figures were basically identical, but there were some minor changes.The small rubber tipped missiles (used in the original Emperor figure release) were used replacing the smaller bullet shaped belly missiles, similar to the original Mego release. Other than that, the Captains and the Commander shared all the same original features like magnetic joints and launching fists. Although very nice to look at, the cheaper plastic used led to loose fitting parts and the Captain's arms and leg sections are usually loose.


The Cosmo Steed (based on the basic magnetic-horse counterpart) also followed the "silver" series two color scheme. While Oberon was mostly white with red highlights, the "silver" Cosmo Steed was mostly gray with red highlights. The Captain and Steed also shared the same centaur configuration features the original magno-characters did.


A detail worth noting is that the horsetail used for the IC versions went back to the original "non-safety" pointed tail that was later changed in the Mego line to be more rounded. Also any kind of copyright or company info was removed from the figures body, and any kind of release date or year indication on the packaging was nonexistent…even further deepening the mystery of the exact origins of the toys altogether. Lastly, only Cosmo Steed - not Captain Cosmo- was released with an Inter-changeables version instruction sheet, which was basically an altered Micronauts sheet. While the Captian came packaged with an HourToy logo on the box, The Steed's packaging shows and M&D Toys sticker paced over the original logo.
