Can pigs fly? According to Porco Rosso, the lead character of the 1992 Hayao Miyazaki film of the same name, they can, provided they have a Savoia S.21 seaplane just like the one Porco had in the anime. And like the one you too can have on your Studio Ghibli memorabilia shelf with the Porco Rosso Porco Gocco Savoia S.21 Toy Airplane, one of the best versions of the plane you can find in the Japanese market. And which comes with some great extras!
Let's start with the plane itself: though just 214 x 75 x 175 mm (8.4 x 3 x 6.9"), the Porco Rosso Porco Gocco Savoia S.21 Toy Airplane features a lot of detail, from the engine to the moving propeller and the flash on the tail. Then comes the man (well, the pig) himself: a figurine of Porco Rosso sitting in the cockpit with his scarf flying as he's soaring through the skies. And then there's the engine: powered by two LR44 batteries, the engine makes four different sounds depending on which angle you are holding the plane – five sounds if you include the machine gun as Porco is fighting the Mamma Aiuto pirates!
