Below is a listing of Patlabor merchandise which doesn't fit into any other category. This list is by no means comprehensive, but I've tried to make it complete as possible and have deliberately included the most unusual items I could find. If you know of any more items or have additional information on the ones listed, please email me.
Notes: Unlike most western movie tickets, Japanese ones are colour printed and are highly collectable. On the left we have two different types of tickets for "Patlabor the movie", with the second one obviously aimed at Gundam fans who came to see the SD Gundam short that played with the movie. On the right are tickets for the second and third films which came in pre-release CD single and DVD packs respectively (called Tickemaga or Ticket Magazines).
Notes: A badge to promote the Early Days OVA series. Unsure if this was just a promotional item or was available for retail sale.

Laserdisc Case for Original OVA Series
Notes: A hard plastic case laserdisc storage/carry case to hold all six OVAs of the Early Days series. It was released in early 1989 and came with the mini calendar pictured.
Kaiyodo 1989 Catalogue
Notes: Kaiydo's 1989 model kit catalogue which features a diorama of the SV2 hanger on the cover. Naturally the catalogue contains a number of Patlabor resin kits as well as kits from other anime and manga such as "Sonic Solider Borgman" and "Five Star Stories".
Shonen Sunday Clock
Notes: I think this clock may have only been available through mail order via Shonen Sunday, but I'm not sure.
Notes: Very similarly designed key rings for the first two Patlabor films.
AV-98 Ingram Papercraft Model Kit
Notes: This is an odd one. You may have heard of papercraft models which are models made from thin cardboard or paper. Usually these are fan made things, but there are some commercial ones. This one is for the AV-98 Ingram Alphonse made by a company called Mubicc. The kit contains 28 B5 sized colour printed sheets and instructions. It was released in May 1990.
Notes: Yes a fan. Well, why not? Just about everything else was made into Patlabor merchandise.
Notes: There's more that one version of these handkerchiefs. Somehow I acquired a yellow and purple one with the Griffin and Alphonse fighting on one side, and SV2 members on the other.
Shogakukan Heat Pack
Notes: As I understand it, I believe you break something inside by bending the pack to get the chemicals to react to make produce heat. I suppose if you're going to go to a winter manga fair, this would be useful. As you can see Ichiro Tanaka from Masami Yuuki's "Ultimate Superman R" manga is on the reverse of the pack. Released in 1991.
Notes: Unsure of the purpose for this one, but it looks rather good.
Notes: Honestly, they just stuck Patlabor on anything and sold it in the early 1990's... This is an "etiquette brush", which is designed to brush lint or fluff that may have acuminated on your suit or whatever clothing you might be wearing. Made by Movic and released in 1991.
Bento (Lunch) Box
Notes: What everyone needs; a bento box. Made by Movic and released in 1991.
Bento (Lunch) Box Strap
Notes: And naturally your Patlabor bento box will need a strap so it doesn't open up with your lunch spilling everywhere. Made by Movic and released in 1991.
