Mattel #2512 Collectors Shogun Warriors Combatra (Combattler V)


#2512 Combatra

The 3 1/5" tall Combatra has a colorfully painted (in red and blue) metal torso with plastic head, legs and arms and is typical of the rest of them. The Shogun Collectors Combatra is often confused with Voltes V because of the "V" on his forehead but his large bowl-shaped ears and antennae (which are usually missing on loose examples) are prominent identifiers. Note that Combatra is the Shogun Warriors name for Chōdenji Robo Combattler V.

For background information on this figure, there's much more information on Chōdenji Robo Combattler V here.


Combatra was initially released in a small box with a top-fold to hang from a peg. See Variations below.

John's Notes

This is a fairly common Collector Shogun figure. This figure is often found with a missing "antennae" or two so check it over thoroughly.
