As I was taking pics of 1/60 Brocken Labor See Type-7B/2B, I thought why not also take out my Patlabor Ingram 1 and 2 - CMS Chogokin again for a re-post now with a better camera and backdrop. The whole idea had inspired me to take another 30 pics for this post. This box set released in year 2007, came in a dimension of 28cm X 9cm X 21cm is quite the collector's item of Patlabor AV-98 Ingram 1 and 2 in Movie Version. 

Don't be mistaken that you would be getting 2 Ingrams in a single box as the box set only consist of 1 Ingram but having changable parts mainly for the head and shoulders to switch between Patlabor AV-98 Ingram 1 and 2. Nevertheless, what made the set so collectible is the it comes with a stand and a hangar which you can either put them together or separating depending your preferences. When I took the figure out from the styrofoam insert, I literally felt the weight of metal especially on the legs for stability. 

CMS had cleverly used cloth to cover the joints and the blinkers is battery operated. There are two pilot figures included so I deducted they are Noa Izumi and Isao Ota. These miniature figures can also be placed inside the mechanised cockpit on the chest. 

Other cool features to the toy would be the revolver compartment on the right leg with openable function and the right forearm could be extended to reach the revolver. The shield has really cool markings of the Police department and insignia. It could also store a nightstick on the underside. There are 2 nightsticks provided one retracted and another extended. 

Beside the revolver and nightstick, there's also Ota's favourite choice of weapon, the pump-gun. The brown locking handle of the pump-gun could slid for more realism. Some drawbacks would be the the sights of exposed metal screws especially on the forearm and the changable parts are unpainted and the tone of whiteness differ.

Wifee had subscribed to Latendo's electronic newsletter on occasions she tried to get some otaku stuffs as gifts for me, which she's hasn't ever since we had kiddos... Boo woo... It got worst when she happened to find that Bandai had recently released Sailor Moon Gashapon Compact Mirrors that could transform to lovely compact mirrors. These kawaii Sailor Moon Gashapon Compact Mirrors could also keep small items look rings, earrings and coins. 

Anyway, they are supposed to be cheap and could be bought right from capsule vending machine. However in my case, I could not even find a single gashapon vending machine catered to them and had a shock my life to know that they were almost sold out following the day, after the newsletter were sent out 0_0. How ridiculous! Have I underestimated the girls' power! ... It's atrocious ... Wifee just wanted any of the designs and since Latendo only had limited pieces left and was selling them as a complete set, I might as well paid a little bit more to collect'em all... I meant let her have'em all... Hoohoohoo (Too early for X'mas). 

I'm pretty certained that those compact mirrors in heart shape were the more desirable ones... True enough, wifee posted on her Facebook that she felt so blissful having received them and had then shared her happiness by giving two of them to our nine-year-old princess. In my opinion, those pouches like really photogenic but in actual the plastic look a bit cheap and I believed those chrome ain't going to last long. Nevertheless, it really about having fun, for the attachment to the anime and feeling great having those young sweet things ^_^
