Presented is a rare, first release factory sealed Wind Raider from Series One.  This vehicle was released alongside the test market 8-back figures, Battle Cat, Castle Grayskull, and the Battle Ram vehicle as part of the initial offering and debut of the Masters of the Universe toyline.  Similar to a canvas in texture, the box quality on this piece is simply amazing.  Outstanding display value from all sides.  Even the flap crease on the reverse is atypically light.  Seasoned collectors know there is quite a difference not only in rarity, but in box features between this early release 8-back and the more common 12-back.  First, rarity: the 8-Backs make up only approximately 10% of the Wind Raider supply.  Second, the nuanced differences that veteran collectors love are present: the bottom of the box is completely black in color, there is only one Masters logo on the front, and the reverse displays only eight characters.  We expect lots of action on this lot and our other 8-back MOTU items as many 12-back owners will see a rare opportunity to upgrade to early releases.  Encapsulated by CAS (75), #10193647
