REVOLTECH: SEPTEMBER 2008 (The Red Spectacles & Enki)

REVOLTECH No.061 PROTECT GEAR (プロテクトギア)
KERBEROS: "紅い眼鏡" (The Red Spectacles)
SEPTEMBER 2008

This is going to make me scream with excitement! Imagine posing a dirty dozen of Kerberos as a section of fictional "Nazi" post-modern style soldiers! The PROTECT-GEAR (プロテクトギア) is a set of fictional armour used by Tokyo's Kerberos Panzer Cop Anti-Vicious Crime Division units in the Kerberos Saga. The Red Spectacles (紅い眼鏡) is one of the movie (not animation) from 1987. The PROTECT-GEAR was designed by Yutaka Izubuchi, who designed the mechanics in MOBILE POLICE PATLABOR. One notable feature of the PROTECT-GEAR worn by the KERBEROS is the Nazi-German-influenced style Stahlhelm helmet; another is the pair of striking bright red eyes. Weapons include German weapons Mauser MG34 machine gun, Fallschirmjägergewehr 42 (FG42) automatic rifle, and Mauser C96 semi-automatic pistol (used by Nazi-German Officers).
We can sure expect other versions of KERBEROS armour such as: Kerberos Panzer Cop ver., Jigoku no Banken ver., Jin-Roh ver., Akai Ashiato ver., Kerberos Panzer Jäger ver. and LIGHT-GEAR to be released soon.
Other KERBEROS related toys have been liscensed and released by Medicom Toys, Yamato, Dragon Models and Takara Tomy.
