Voltes V Volt Machine #1 - Volt Crewzer (Special Packaging)
Model #: PB-04
Made In: Japan
Amount Paid: $700
This ship forms the head of Voltes V. It's called the Volt Machine #1 - Volt Crewzer, piloted by Steve Armstrong. This came in a very rare packaging, which is not the usual one you see in the blue/green box like most common Volt Crewzer toys. These were sold to the American buyers that docked Japan's piers. They would be tied to a push cart and would be hoisted up to an American ship. These toys were packed in transparent plastic bags so that the buyers could easily identify them.
