From popular mecha like Patlabor and Shinkalion, to whimsical Maruttoys robots and more, we’ve got some fun new kits this week. Preorders are open now, so be sure to grab a spot in line sooner rather than later to make sure you get one when they’re released!
Give a warm welcome to the newest Patlabor plastic model kit from Aoshima with the addition of their AV-98 Ingram 2!

In addition to the revolver canon and stun stick, a new Liat gun with deployable stock is also included. The leg hatches and cockpit hatch can be deployed without replacement, and the cockpit seat can be raised and lowered to allow the pilot, Isao Ohta, to be positioned in a seated position.
