Crusher Joe Minerva by Wave

I'll admit, I havent seen Crusher Joe in 15 years. I have it on a VHS tape, bootlegged from Laserdisc, not subtitled. Still, It was very cool to watch, and I loved the design in it.

The Minerva is the ship of the Crusher team led by Crusher Joe. Wave is also releasing a figurine of navigator Alfin to coincide with this release.

The ship is made of abs and diecast and measures 23cm long. It will retail for 18,800 yen and is due out 10/2009

Great Fun Anime

One of my favorites as a kid, I have the model kit of the Minerva that I build as a kid that I need to build up again one of these days as I still have most all the parts. All the ships and tanks were well done and the art design still holds up after all these years,

Cool Item!

Will we get the pirate fighters?

I'd really like to get a "Harpy" toy without having to pay $95 on eBay for a four-inch-long unassembled plastic model kit...

A sci-fi classic

It's programs like "Crusher Joe" that define the golden age of anime. I'm definitely picking up an Alfin.
