Techno Police kits from Aoshima. WAT?
I remember way back in the day when Kaybee had these cheap kids videotapes in a bin in front of their store, and there were some real gems in there, including the infamous "Clash of the Bionoids" (a re-dubbed "Do You Remember Love", "Ninja Warrior", and this one called "Techno Police".
Techno Police was this slow, boring 80s anime about these three space cops, I think. I watched it a few times back in the day and promptly forgot about it, although I still have the tape.
I had all but forgotten about it until today, when I saw the listings for these - the three main robots from the 1982 OVA Techno Police 21C! I didn't even know they made kits for these, but I guess I shouldn't be surprised.
The kits are all reissues of classic Aoshima kits from the early 80s, a great bit of nostalgia for sure.
The first is a set of the three main robots: Blader, Scany and Vigolus. Each is 1/16 scale and will require paint and cement to complete. Due late April for 3,800 yen.
Next is the Roadranger vehicle that comes in at 1/48 scale and includes some human figures. This kit is also due late April and will retail for 2,600 yen.
Viva la 80's mecha!
So when is DAPDX going to do a podcast on Techno Police?
