The Bandai version - Akira

If there is one vehicle that is seen as the most "iconic" of the mangaworld, it has to be this one. This is not only an Otaku's dream, but the dream of many AKIRA readers as well. Lots of copies exist, and some people even tried building "the real thing" with more or less success (getting a ceramic engine into the wheels is nothing easy...) This is the Bandai metal (Soul of Chogokin) version, with detachable parts and finally the correct stickers applied (Mc Farlane made a previous plastic model but they had to change all the lettering on the bike due to copyright infringement.).

Kaneda's bike, Bandai, China,
