Capo Toys launches Street Fighter Kickstarter

Capo Toys has finally provided some release details for its Street Fighter line and... (wait for it...) it's going through Kickstarter. Ryu, the first figure in the line, now has an active Kickstarter campaign which, at the t...

Next challenger for Kotobukiya Bishoujo is Street Fighter's Sakura

Perhaps you're watching a stream of EVO right now and you're in the mood for some more fighting. While we've seen the release Bishoujo Chun Li and are awaiting Cammy and Juri, how about one more fighter to add to the mix? Kot...

Build a team of Ryus with Pop Culture Shock's latest
by Brian Szabelski

Pop Culture Shock's polystone Ryu is coming next year in not one, but three different versions. All three are planned for the first quarter of 2015, are 1/4-scale to fit with their other Street Fighter figures, are up for pre-order on May 19 starting at 3 p.m. Pacific (6 p.m. Eastern, 10 p.m. GMT), and generally make me interested in buying a statue of my least favorite World Warrior.

For a quick breakdown on the three variants:

  • The regular edition is a run of a to-be-determined size at a price of US$325
  • The Ansatuken edition includes two alternate heads: one is the gritting teeth head you see in the gallery, and the other is a surprise, it seems. 
  • The battle-damaged Tatakai Kouka edition is a similar sculpt but with a worn and weathered look. It's probably my favorite look of the three, coming with an alternate head. A total of 250 are being made at US$350 a piece.

Any one of these catching your eye?

WonderCon 2014: Kotobukiya's Spring Preview panel, Part 1 photo
WonderCon 2014: Kotobukiya's Spring Preview panel, Part 1
by Natalie Kipper

For a toy collector, if you only attended one panel at last weekend's WonderCon, it was Kotobukiya's Spring Preview. They had licensing announcements. They had prototypes. They had concept art a plenty. Heck, they even had a very generous raffle! So much awesomeness is impossible to contain within a mere one post and thus this panel's summary has been split into two posts. The anime, Star Wars, and gaming news can be found here and the rest will be in part two. For now, don't worry so much about that. Just read on and take in the excitement.

WonderCon 2014: Pop Culture Shock

If I told you that Pop Culture Shock's painted RoboCop statue was the first thing that caught my eye from WonderCon, would you be surprised? Or better yet, can you blame me? From the metallic finish to the tiniest details on ...

WonderCon 2014: Kotobukiya

Kotobukiya didn't bring much (if anything) new to WonderCon, which is understandable as it's not a tentpole convention in the US. However our determined editor Natalie covered their booth all the same despite being sick as a ...

Toy Fair 2014: Kotobukiya

Kotobukiya is always fun to see at conventions because you never know what new stuff they’ll have. Their recently revealed DC Bishoujo Starfire was on full display, and actually looks better in person than those promo ...

Wonder Festival 2014 Winter: Kotobukiya Bishoujo Roundup

Most of Kotobukiya's newer Bishoujo figures were up at WonFes, included a painted Starfire sculpt for DC fans! I think she looks great; her green eyes really stand out, and the sculpting on her hair is awesome. We've seen the...

New 7-inch Street Fighter action figure line on way photo
New 7-inch Street Fighter action figure line on way
by Scarecroodle

CapoToys has a boss new line of Street Fighter figures on the way. The first four figures in this 7-inch scale line will be Ryu, Sagat, Chun Li, and Guile.

The company recently gave Figures.com a first look at the prototypes for these figures, which will be on display next month at Toy Fair in New York  (Booth #5042), as well as an interview. The figures are listed as being almost entirely ball-jointed and will feature 19-points of articulation.

The Street Fighter franchise has had a somewhat rocky time with action figures in recent years, but CapoToys looks like it may do right by the venerable fighting game franchise. The sculpting on all of these looks really good, seemingly even better than what Square-Enix has been doing.

Expect to see more news about CapoToys and its new line come Toy Fair.

Bishoujo Cammy throws down against Chun Li in review
by Scarecroodle

AmiAmi's English blog has released a review for Kotobukiya's upcoming Street Fighter Bishoujo Cammy White and, in the process, revealed how naturally Cammy fits together with the Bishoujo Chun Li. Apparently there's at least *some* method to Shunya's madness.

Thoughts (and gallery) after the jump.
