Toy-Release: AKIRA's Tetsuo in 1/6 by Medicom Toy x Project BM!

First came the nigh-anticipated and welcomed announcement of a production 1/6th-scaled "Kaneda" (and his bike ~ tis mostly about the bike, innit? / blogged) from the revered anime-classic; AKIRA ... Now, Kaneda will have a "familiar friend" to display alongside with: "TETSUO"!


Scheduled for an October 2010-release, the 1/6th-scaled Tetsuo Shima comes courtesy of Medicom Toys x Project BM! and has a SRP of 18,690Yen (via / US$203). Tetsuo comes with duo interchangeable heads (with different facial expressions), and the RAH301-body form featuring a cyborg-right-arm (well, technically tis an arm made with loose mecha-orga and metal-bits, kept in place by Tetsuo's newly developed and heightened mental-powers...) ~ TetsuooOOOoooo!

TRE-TOY-WISH: Now all he needs to "complete" his (proposed) diorama is (1) an enlarged mutated limb in place of cyborg-arm, (2) a stone throne for the power-hungry brat to sit on, and (3) a row of glass jars containing the deceased-Akira's internal organs. Glorious! LOL ... aaahhhh don't mind my imagination, folks!

There's the signature RED jacket (shown above), and a black-version to choose from. 69,800 YEN (approx US$899) will get you the jacket (but not the pants, I'm afraid - or neither the bike - you wish! lol). And as well go here to see the excitement of the 30th Anniversary (in Japanese, I'm afraid) … Gosh I am so excited over a piece of geek-apparel! LO

"Blade Runner meets City of God": the movie is a GO!

Firstshowing reports that the AKIRA live-action movie has been given the official-GO, with 2 films planned (!) - with the first movie aiming for a summer 2009-launch (!!)

described as "Blade Runner meets City of God" - the film is primarily going to be adapted from anime artist Katsuhiro Otomo's graphic novel more than the original 1988 anime movie, with each movie based on 3 of the 6 volumes of Otomo's graphic novels.

Irish filmmaker Ruairi Robinson will helm the movies, while CBR reports that Leonardo DiCaprio "will produce the Warner Bros. film via his Appian Way company, with writer Gary Whitta (former Editor-in-Chief, PC Gamer) penning the screenplay." ... Greg Silverman is overseeing for Warners. Otomo is executive producing. Legendary Pictures is co-financing.

Hollywood Reporter mentions that the new story will take place in "New Manhattan," 'a city rebuilt by Japanese money', instead of the Neo-Tokyo we all lurved in the book.

and whi…
