The main figures in the Inter-changeables line were the larger sized 6 ˝" Magno characters. The evil enemy of the Micronauts was Baron Karza, so it's IC counterpart would be based on the same figure, this time called: Count Magno.

The two 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. Other than that, the Captain and the Commander shared all the same original features like magnetic joints and launching fists. One major difference was in the color schemes: where the Baron was black with reddish orange highlights, the Count was cast in gray with red highlights. The cheaper grade of plastic used led to loose fitting parts, a common feature in the IC line.


The Magna Steed (based on the basic magnetic-horse counterpart) was slightly different in color scheme than the original Andromeda horse. Andromeda was mostly black with gray and red highlights, and Magna Steed followed the Count's colors of gray with red highlights. The Count 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. These figures are also almost identical in both colors schemes and packaging to the Italian GiG company released Nuovi Micronauti ("New Micronaut") line, with the Italian Baron Karza figure also being gray but with dark blue highlights. As was a common occurrence with the Inter-changeables, some small parts were sometimes cast in different colors, thereby creating even more slight variants. In the case of the Magna Steed, the missile launchers came in both a solid gray color and a gray with red end cap. 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 non-existant…even further deepening the mystery of the exact origins of the toys altogether. Lastly, only Magna Steed - not Count Magno - was released with an Inter-changeables version instruction sheet, which was basically an altered Micronauts sheet.
