Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)
I am a complete indoor person… I haven’t even rode on a bike in ages!
But anyway, today I’m going to be taking a look at a Max Factory figure that was shipped out yesterday…
figma Sakamichi Onoda!
Oooooh! Onoda-kun!!! (*´Д｀)=з
From the popular manga, anime and game series ‘Yowamushi Pedal’ comes a figma of the high-cadence climber, Sakamichi Onoda!
The yellow jersey of Souhoku High is so bright and noticeable! Plus those round glasses are simply fantastic! ♡
This is how the blister pack looks! (｀・ω・´)ゞ
Alternate head parts to display him with his helmet are also included!!
But more importantly…
what is the strange plastic model like thing I can see behind him…?
Parts to put a bike together!!
Let’s see if someone as clumsy as myself can put it together! ♥︎
First compare the unattached parts to the handling instructions and make sure that everything is there!
Hmm… is this really going to build into a bicycle…? (； ・`д・´)
Let’s start off by cutting out each part from the runner! ♪
If you read through the instructions carefully, you should easily be able to cut at the right areas!
Just be sure to check where to cut for each new piece! (/ω＼)
I prefer cutting out all the parts before getting to work, but you can also cut them out as they are needed! ♥︎
Here we have all the parts separated!
I just cut them out and left them as is, but you can also sand the cut edges to get them smooth if you want a cleaner attachment! ★
But hold on a second… there are no wheels here!
How will my bike work without wheels?! (´□｀｡)
Oh right! There were some parts in the front as well! Thanks Onoda-kun!
*I actually honestly thought the parts were missing at first. I was just about to ask Max Factory about them when I realized…
Right then, let’s start putting the bike together!
The explanation is very clear, and even I was able to progress rather quickly!
Putting the parts together took around 10 minutes! (Including a quick break!)
Finally Onoda-kun has a bike to ride on! ヽ(*・ω・)人(・ω・*)ノ
Even though the bike is a model kit, it still has nice detail all over! The handles and front wheel can also be turned left and right to create slightly different poses. ☆
Just look at how happy Onoda-kun looks with his complete bike! ♪
I still can’t believe that those parts managed to come together into such a convincing bike! I never thought the parts I cut out would transform into the bike so easily!
But what is this part that Onoda-kun is looking at so intently…?
A drink bottle holder!!
That can only mean that… a drink bottle must also be included!! (●´ω｀●)
“Need a drink? I’ve got some Aquari.”
Not only does Onoda-kun come with parts that allow him to hold the bottle, you can also insert it into the bottle holder on the bike! (｡･ω･)ﾉﾞ
Ready and hydrated, time to start riding!! ♡♡
The start looks like quite a climb!
After getting to the top of the hill, it’s time for a break! ♪
I can’t wait to display him together with Yusuke!
Onoda stands about 135mm tall, which isn’t too different to other figma, but the tight feeling of the cycling jersey gives him a rather small looking appearance!
He fits quite comfortably into the top of a Gacha cup!
Be sure to display him in all sorts of fun situations when your’s arrives! (σ・ ∀・)σ
figma Sakamichi Onoda!
He is on sale now!
