Voltes V Model Kit
Manufacturer: Bandai
Made In: Japan
Year: 1983
Amount Paid: $450

I'm starting to collect vintage model kits, and this is my first one. The packaging for the plastic parts inside is unopened, and it's a really cool box with great artwork in front. This was made in 1983, during the height of the Voltes V craze in Manila.
