Toward the end of the Micronauts run, Mego began creating its own vehicles as well as figures, in addition to licencing the newer and existing ones from Takara. The Solarion was one of these. Released in 1979 in a box, This vehicles design would be used many times over throughout different Mego lines. Molded in red, yellow, and white plastic, Solarion was an odd looking mode of transportation.

The main body has a clear snap-on canopy, and 5mm holes held a horizontal control wing fitted with 2 vertical control wings on the top, while a wind up motor fit underneath in the back. This chrome motor would be used again in numerous Micronaut vehicles, due to its adapability with the 5mm peg/hole system. When holding the wheels (fitted with rubber tires) you could turn the white nob in a clockwise direction. When released, the wheels would spin propelling the vehicle forward. A surplus of these motors would later be released mainly in the Canadian markets as a 3 pack carded set.
The stranger addition was that of a double ski pod brace fitted with 2 skis, which plugged into a 5mm hole in the front top of the body, and a single ski leg which went underneath. The Solarion design was used again with the Micronauts Star Defender as side cars, molded in different colors. Mego also used it again in the Pocket Super Heroes line: twice for Spider Man almost idetically as the Shuttle Glider, and again recolored as the Spider Mobile, and for Batman recolored as the Bat Shuttle. Solarion was packaged with instructions and a sticker sheet.
