An all-time favorite anime of mine...AKIRA. I ended up purchasing the McFarlaine versions of Kaneda & Tetsuo when they hit the store shelves. The detail on them were just incredible. So why create another Tetsuo? I new there was no way to match up to McFarlaine's skills, so I decided to get creative with Tetsuo's composition and give a more dramatic feel. Inspired by the part of the movie when Testuo loses control of his powers and his arm englufs the cop. Originally, the arm was to be 2 feet long...but ran out of Sculpey at the time. This was done when I was still attending AI in Seattle. Made of Sculpey, a Coca-Cola can for the cape, duct tape for his pants and an old remote control for his arm.
