    Patlabor: The Movie Noa Izumi and Alphonse Production Cel Setup with Painted Background (Studio Deen, 1989). From the thrilling final scenes of Patlabor: The Movie, this is a magnificent hand-painted original production cel setup featuring Noa piloting her Labor mech suit she calls "Alphonse". Patlabor: The Movie was famously directed by the celebrated director of Ghost in the Shell Mamoru Oshii. It tells the story of a future Japanese society in which industry and redevelopment thrives with the use of piloted humanoid giant robots called Labors, but trouble ensues when the machines start to go haywire. This spectacular piece can be seen at approximately the 1:31:55 mark of the film. It is presented on a painted background rendered in gouache, and the setup measures an overall 14" x 10". The piece shows minor handling and edge wear with the cel showing a small tear in the top edge, and the condition overall is Very Good.
