Re-Enact Yowamushi Pedal With Finger Puppets

posted on by Bamboo Dong

The current season of Yowamushi Pedal has been fraught with nail-biting race scenes and down-to-the-wire sprints, and soon, fans will be able to reenact those moments with a handful of finger puppets.

Toy companies around Japan have been showing off their wares at the 38th Prize Fair, and they've been giving the cycling anime plenty of love. Banpresto has a complete set of Sohoku and Hakone finger puppets, with six scheduled for release in April 2015, and six more scheduled for May 2015.

Those who need a place to store their puppets can stuff them inside Yowamushi Pedal totebags.

Notably, there's no glimpse of a Midousuji puppet yet, but we imagine it can't be far behind.

Fans who do want Midousuji right now can look forward to Furyu's lineup of Yowapeda plushes, which include all of the Sohoku and Hakone riders, and of course, Kyoto Fushimi's Midousuji. The plushes are scheduled for February 2015.

Other merch from Furyu includes mini figures, character face pouches, plush jersey keychains, tote bags, and more. For more photos, check out Hobby Maniax.
