    Identify a 80's/90's Space Anime Film- 'Truckers' (?)
    Haha, OK I remember seeing this back in the arly 90's say between 92-95, it was on VHS cassete (obviously) and I'm 99% sure it was a one off film not a series.

    The plot synopsis as far as I can remember was a renegade army (?) had captured a princess and one of the first scenes was her naked body (in some kind of immobile stasis) being transported in a glass coffin-like object in a cargo vehicle. There were mechsuits, not on the scale of Gundam, more 'personal' sized and there were also large army spaceships.

    The final scene was the slightly atypically effeminate 'hero' driving a hover- sports car on earth down a long twisting highway. I remember that the heroes were a crew of intergalactic haulage/delivery guys and girls. One of the main characters was a dead-ringer for Barrett from Final Fantasy VII, as he was black (I think), beefy, and had a gun-hand hidden under a glove.

    I could swear that it was called 'Space Truckers' and although it unfortunately shares that name with a similar albeit unconnected live-action movie (starring Dennis Hopper) I cannot locate it under that name . I never even knew about the Hopper film until well after 95 (it was made in 96) and I have never seen it.

    So 'Space Truckers' or 'Truckers' anyone?
