I just can not get enough Patlabor. Out of all the real type robots, I think the labors, Ingrams specifically, are some of the coolest because they are probably the closest to our current technology. They utilize electric and internal combustion motors, hydraulics and lots of tech we use right now. They do not shoot laser beams or have magical morphing abilities, but that's what makes' em so wonderful because labor type mechs are probably in our near future, possibly a reality in some top secret military location underground undergoing testing.

One thing we will not be seeing is a super deformed version on our streets fighting crime. However we can see one on our shelf thanks to Kotobukiya. They made the effort to release a deformed style of the AV-98 Ingram, hence the name D-Style.

Here is the box which is laden with cool box art. This is the type of box that you see as a kid and say "wow, this is awesome looking!" ...

... until you open the box and find out you have to build it and detail. I always got suckered into buying kits by their awesome box art only to find out that mine will never look as cool. Here are the contents.

Kotobukiya wants you to enjoy the kit as much as possible so they've pre-painted some of the details for you! That's right, no water transfer decals either. This kit is made to look good without paint. Lets take a look at the sprues. You will notice where parts of the kit have been pre-detailed.

That's not all. Check out the clear pieces. Yeah, they are colored also.

Did I mention this kit is poseable No Well, I am Here are the poly caps that make this possible

Of course Kotobukiya includes this full color instruction sheet to make things come together smoothly.

Here's a peep of the diagrams.

Ok, time to check out the completed model. Since this kit is my own, I've done some slight washing and weathering to bring out some panel lines using a standard Sharpie, silver marker and a fine point sharpie although a fine point Gundam marker would work best. Do not be afraid to experiment.

The green visor is crystal clear and really brings out the" eye "of the Ingram. Check out the shoulder pad tampo printing detail. Notice the neck area is unpainted. This could have easily been one of the pre-painted pieces but Kotobukiya for some reason left it unpainted.

You gotta love a robot with a simple pistol as a weapon.

How about some posing action? You have a ball jointed head, shoulder pads, hips, feet, articulated shoulders, elbows and hands. The knees however are fixed.

Bottom line is that this is a really fun kit to build. Minimum prep work, snap fit assembly, poly cap joints so you can actually play with it and it's affordable. At just over 3 "tall, it's not exactly tall but it looks just right alongside your robot collection. It has nice shelf presence. I can not wait for the rest of the line.

PS Griffon is a future release- HELLS YEAH!
