The character 'Brave Police J-Decker' was a part of the Yusha (Brave) series of anime shows that aired during the 1994-1995 TV season. 'Brave Police J-Decker' returns to a subtly lighter tone, focusing more on Might Gaine’s concept of 'robot as human-built AI construct.' Grade schooler Yuuta Tominaga stumbles upon Deckerd, a humanoid robot under construction by the Japanese police, built to fight advanced forms of crime. 'Brave Police J-Decker' is a 6' tall PVC/ABS/POM fully articulated figure and comes equipped with accessories/weapons.
