Apparently, these Dai-X illustrations were published in Japan's 'Televi-kun' magazine in March 1981.
Here is, apparently, the other version of the Japanese X Bomber sketchbook that I have.
Unfortunately, with Rinkya, you can at least double the buyout price when you take into account commission, fees and international shipping.
And that's even before you get to import duty / VAT / UK shipping.
And people wonder why I never have any money... :D
I didn't know that there was an X Bomber raygun sold in Japan. :D
It's hardly an exact copy of the ones from the show but it looks quite a bit like it.
When I was rummaging, I found a little outline of what I guess was a ship based on the Shadow vessels from Babylon 5.
I sharpied and shaded it a bit, stuck it through the V750 Pro.
My idea for it is that, while the Shadow 'battlecrab' is the great all-rounder, this ship fires more accurately over great distances but is vulnerable at close-quarters, lacking much agility or short-range defence.
The blue-green bits presumably help the two weapons to charge, aim, regulate temperature ... or do some other thing.
This ship type may well have been mostly phased-out before the events of the TV series.
Had this outline of a Space Precinct / Bladerunner style weapon lying around for a long time and, after I did a re-watch of Space Precinct the other week, I finished it.

Found some images of the Star Fleet blu-ray,
Good how they used the aqua colour from X-Bomber the Game's default HUD for the menu.
Japanese twitter is a total goldmine for X Bomber fan art.
That is about twitter's only use.
