Hey, I love Patlabor! It sounds like you are where I am in the series, Tape
6 of the english translation. BTW, I aways thought that patlabor would be
the best show to take into the live-action/CG realm. The environment is
contemporary, not many sets to build, just use a old warehouse, that's easy
enough. You can funnel most of the budget toward getting the mecha right.
Plus, the labors aren't so big that you couldn't build a mockup just for
static work. (unlike a 20m mobile suit). Bandai should have gone this route
instead of G-savior.
