International Intrigue: If you order a Blu-Ray set for delivery to Canada, our Shipping Ninjas will cleverly redirect your order to a Toronto fulfillment warehouse, which means no Customs duty or processing fees! One caveat, however: your order can't also contain items that have to be shipped from the USA. We can also handle our other Blu-rays this way as well.

Available as: DVD - $7.99, Basic Blu-Ray disc - $30.00, Premium Blu-Ray set - $60.00, Supreme Blu-Ray set - $75.00.

Think of it as "Lethaler Weapon"

In Chicago, ace courier Bean Bandit rules the road, and operates on both sides of the Law. 

"When it absolutely, positively, has to be there NOW," Bean Bandit is your man -- if you can afford his rates. 

"Worried about the getaway from your next heist?" Leave the driving to Bean! 

Unfortunately for Bean, and even more unfortunately for the Chicago P.D.'s insurance company, he's about to have to demonstrate why he's so expensive. 

The plot begins to thicken when Bean drives getaway from a robbery (score: 6 police cruisers and 1 18-wheeler). The crooks are a little ticked off to find out that Bean's flat rate fee accounts for almost all of the proceeds, but business is business. Curiously, as soon as Bean leaves, their annoyance disappears. 

The next day, Bean and his heavily-armed assistant, Rally Vincent (deadly with both gun and frying pan), receive a visitor with a young girl in tow. 

The visitor barely has time to beseech them to return the girl to her father before a hit-team swiss-cheeses Bean's apartment. Unfortunately for him, he doesn't have Bean's taste in clothes (all Kevlar, including his underwear!) 

Bean and Rally bundle little Chelsea into the car and make tracks. Alas, what they don't know is that the kidnappers have already made off with the $2,000,000 ransom, leaving them to take the rap. 

Will Bean discover the ruse in time and get the money for himself? Will he be able to evade the relentless pursuit of Inspector Percy? Will the Chicago P.D.'s insurance company raise their rates? Find out by watching RIDING BEAN, one very high-octane action-adventure! 

  • Set in Chicago with lots of details of the city.

  • "Gunsmith Cats" is the alternate-universe side-story of Riding Bean.

We had a lot of fun making our special garage kit of Buff the Roadbuster, and you can read more about the process here.

We also commissioned Andrew Mayer of Rollinallones to paint some Buffs and create a painting tutorial so you can get the most out of your Buff model. Andrew is also accepting commissions to custom paint a Buff for $150 + shipping.

Our special limited-edition BluRay release includes a new HD transfer, multiple subtitle tracks, 3 commentary tracks, color and line-art galleries, 2 poster inserts, translated background manga, new full-color 8-page manga story by Ken'ichi Sonoda, and more. It even comes with a custom embroidered patch!

The Premium Set includes the Blu-Ray, the patch, and a .45 caliber Artbook (that's how thick it is!) with new color art and translated settei in a handsome chipboard case.

The Supreme Set includes everything in the Premium set plus a Riding Bean keychain custom-designed by Ken'ichi Sonoda!

The Nitrous-Injected Set includes everything in the Supreme set plus a 1:43 scale Garage Kit of Buff the Roadbuster. Currently out-of-stock as the Buff assembly line is running a little slow.


Additional Riding Bean embroidered patches are available as an add-on if you are ordering the Blu-Ray (or have previously purchased it). As they are a sign that you own the set, they are not available to non-set owners.

The price includes shipping.
