Vintage Combattra Combattler DX Super Robot System
Made In: Japan
Year: 1976 / 1984 (Box)
Amount Paid: $1,800
This is Combattra (U.S. name) also known as Combattler (Japanese name). This robot is a year older than Voltes V. Just like Voltes, this robot has five vehicles that combine into one giant robot. Made of diecast, which is very heavy when all vehicles have been combined. I purchased this toy from a collector in America. It is very difficult to find this particular toy in this condition, and especially when all the parts are complete, and as you can see the toy set is complete. The toy was made in 1978 and the U.S. Bandai company repackaged it in 1984 using a different box design and packaging.
