Kaiyodo and Yasuhiro Nightow's Toy Tribe have also developed Assemble Borg, a Revoltech original line. This line was presented at the First Revoltech Expo on December 1, 2007 at the Tokyo Anime Center in Japan but struggled to be released for more than a year.

Beyond the line's unique aesthetic synthesis of Microman/Micronauts and Nightow's unique style, Assemble Borg is designed to take full advantage of the interchangeability of the standardized pegs used by the revolver joint. The consumer is encouraged to "Assemble" the figures by interchanging parts and limbs to build their own Revoltech cyborgs. To facilitate this each figure comes with extra parts to replace at least one appendage with a mechanical version, as well as a variety of extra revolver joints and connector pegs. Additionally, all of the vehicles in the line can be broken down into smaller components and recombined with other products in a nearly unlimited number of combinations. As a starting point, Kaiyodo provides assembly "recipes" on the series' official site: http://assembleborg.com/.

It is also worth noting that the Assemble Borg series is generally harder to obtain outside of Japan than other Revoltech series, due to its primary mode of distribution being Kaiyodo's own "Museum Store" website, which only ships orders within Japan. This causes prospective buyers to either resort to importing via proxy services or buying through resellers, both of which greatly inflate what one would otherwise pay for the products. This situation had been somewhat alleviated in the US, with a limited release of the first four products at SDCC 2009 and then later when the official English site was opened (http://www.assembleborg.net/) to coincide with the first four products being made available via Amazon.com in December 2010. It is unclear at this time if further products will be released outside of Japan.

So far the series includes:
