Motto: "Winners never look backwards."
VOLTAR was an extremely successful mercenary commander. In fact, he was too successful for his continued presence to be tolerated by the provisional governments, revolutionary councils, and military dictatorships that employed him. He could pluck victory from seemingly imminent defeat in complete defiance of the odds, always just one step ahead of disaster, never looking back. DESTRO does not fear the challenge of any officer, especially one so capable of bringing him victory.
VOLTAR's battlefield strategies are nothing short of uncanny. His knowledge of geography, weather conditions, troop dispostion, vehicles, weapons, armaments and supply lines are all vast. Yet it is his ability to calculate their effects on each other, change strategies during battle, and see the long term results of these interactions, that brings him victory again and again. DESTRO hopes that this superior tactical ability will be enough to defeat the OKTOBER GUARD General they have almost no record of, let alone experience engaging.
Voltar (v2) was available both boxed and bagged.
The reissued box set came with a different certificate of authenticity, and the tacks on the pin are set higher. In addition, the reissued Voltar lacks the red detail on the left leg.
