Why Isn’t There Official Akira Lego?
Because, damn, there really should be. This do-it-yourself LEGO take on Kaneda’s bike from Akira was spotted by Hobby Media‘s Francesco Fondi and it’s fantastic.
The bike is the work of Ghimuretto San, a famed Japanese LEGO builder. Hobby Media‘s Fondi discovered it at the recent Treasure Festa.
This year, an official one-to-one scale Akira bike raced across Japan, and it went on display in Tokyo this past April.
First serialised in 1982 as a manga, Akira became an iconic feature film anime in 1988.
