Why Aren'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 serialized in 1982 as a manga, Akira became an iconic feature film anime in 1988.
