Toy Treasures: Vintage Voltes V Volt Crewzer (Special Packaging)

Nostalgia Manila in cooperation with www.kimcastro.com proudly presents, Kim Castro's Toy Treasures! Showcasing collection photos of top Vintage Japanese Robot Toy collector Kim Castro. Tune in every other Thursday to view Kim Castro's amazing collection of Rare Vintage Japanese Robot Toys!


Voltes V Volt Machine #1 - Volt Crewzer (Special Packaging)
Model #: PB-04
Manufacturer: Popy
Made In: Japan
Year: 1977
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.

Kim Castro's Toy Trasures is made possible through the kindness of our good friend, and top Filipino vintage toy collector Kim Castro. Visit Kim Castro's site at: http://www.kimcastro.com.
