Full Size PATLABOR Mecha Spotted En Route To Live-Action Filming
A full-scale replica of the Patlabor mecha has been spotted by fans in Tokyo as it travels from its construction facility to the film's set. It's surprising to see a giant robot film use a full-scale model as opposed to going 100% CGI.
Onlookers have managed to capture several snaps of the full-scale replica of the Patlabor mecha being used in the live-action film from Tohokushinsha Film Corporation. The film is currently slated for a 2014 release and has secured the involvement of the anime's original director, Mamoru Oshii (Ghost in the Shell). The giant robot was spotted in Yokohama City, which is a little south of Tokyo.
