Commercial Promotional Items List

This section contains examples of promotional Patlabor related items. Most of these items aren't meant for the general public, but were produced for retailers, the media and to promote Patlabor to the public. It is by no means an exhaustive list, but instead I've tried to highlight some of the more interesting items I've come across.
