FREEing ex:ride American Bike
As seen previously in figma Racing Miku review, here is FREEing's ex:ride American bike.
I wanted to get a black one for my figma Black Rock Shooter originally, but could only find a gold one as other colours were sold out when I wanted to look for one. ^^;
The FREEing's ex:ride is a series of transportation accessories that mainly complements Max Factory's figma action figure line. However other 1/12 scale figures will go well with them too.
This is the 7th of the line - the American bike. Three colours are available: gold, red, and black.
There is not much stuff that comes in the box - just the bike and the stand (as well as a decal sheet).
4 views of the bike with the bike stand on the rear wheel. This is a cruiser, where some of its distinctive features include foot pedals at the front and the handles pretty high up compared to other types of motorbikes.
The handle can be raised or lowered, as well as rotated upwards or downwards to suit the rider's height
A kickstand can be swiveled out so that the bike can stand on its own

figma BRS with Rock Cannon. I personally think that she suits well with the appearance as a biker. The coat of her kind of gets in the way, so she can't sit too comfortably unfortunately.
Pass the finish line!
There is a hole at the bottom of the bike for you to plug a figma stand on it...
... So you can pull off a wheelie or any other fancy things with it
There is a sheet of water transfer decals for you to decorate the bike with. The most ideal place to stick them would be on the white spot on either sides of the bike.
For 1900 Yen, this is not bad for a big accessory to give to a figma or other similarly scaled action figures, such as Revoltechs. Some parts like handles and pedals are a bit fragile and may break if handled carelessly.
And last but not least, one extra picture to conclude the post:
FEAR THE BALL BIKER AND THE CANNON ON ITS HEAD!
