1/6 scale Kaneda and bike from AKIRA

i can't beleive we havent covered this here yet, but here it is. Bandai and Medicom are teaming up under their Project BM! label to produce a 1/6 scale Kaneda and Bike.

The Bike is being handled by Bandai, under strict supervision of Katsuhiro Otomo. The vehicle contains overwhelming precision and weight, with special attention to real-world materials. Metal frame, rubber tires. SIX different light up LED, two sound effects (right trigger makes accellerating sound, left brake makes brake squeal).

"from Katsuhiro Otomo's acclaimed manga, AKIRA, and created under Otomo's direct supervision. This die-cast metal vehicle replica is complete with LED light-up features, including front and back wheels, headlights, taillights, blinker, and dashboard, as well as sound effects, including engine start, rev, tires, drift and drive. The headlights can be adjusted to move up and down, and the front can be raised and lowered to simulate park and drive modes. The model has three power levels - off, lights only, and lights with sound, and has full, workable suspension created under cowling. (Requires 4 AAA batteries, not included.) The fully detailed Kaneda's Bike Die-cast Model is the perfect companion to the Shotaro Kaneda 12-inch Figure (available separately), an outstanding pair for any collection."

38,000 yen, due March 2010

The Kaneda figure is being handled by Medicom.

As a long time fan of this

As a long time fan of this bikes design & Akira being the first animated manga film I ever saw. I would love this in my collection, but for around $400 + $200 for Kaneda + shipping. I might have to just make due with the photos...

I wonder if it is going to be properly decaled?

Cost is a bit much for me to consider though.
