Patlabor - 1/60 Scale MPL97S Python Labor (Built & Painted)

A glimpse of MPL97S Python Labor during the first episode of  Patlabor TV series ...

Emblem of Special Vehicle Divisional 1

The kit stands approximately 15cm, almost the same size as CMS labor

If you ask me, I would say the MPL97S Python Labor is a GM in the universal of Patlabor and shared  similar ill fate of outdated, replaced and outclassed. Don't worry Python, your design is loved by me and I hope we are comrades around who share the same sentiments. Anyway, there is no shame to be overtaken by Shinohara’s Ingram! Python was assigned to Special Vehicle Divisional 1 and see little action either caught in traffic jam or on standby. Beside the visor head, I do like the Python labor as it has a design that resemble the riot Police. 

Till date, I have only come across this labor as a toy under the 'Cloth Gear System' and this 1/60 scale soft vinyl kit. Took me long enough to finally own a finished product of this kit. The kit stands approximately 15cm  (almost the same size as CMS labor) when completed with limited articulation (mainly the swivel arms, head and slight movement to the legs). Still, I prefer this kit over the 'Cloth Gear System' toy as the kit looks less bulky and seemingly more proportional and anime accurate. 

This kit is close to 30-year-old therefore the posability is seriously limited. Its major shortcomings is  those stiff hands that hardly holds anything. I managed to savage the Police shield from 'Cloth Gear System' toy for this kit and I'm still on a look out for a Police baton of the right size.
