Square-Enix's Play Arts Kai Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition Ibuki and Guile are now available for pre-order.
PAK Guile strikes me as looking a little better than he did in the actual game. He comes with an alternate head, set of hands, and a "Sonic Boom" projectile accessory. Even if this isn't the best Guile ever made, I'd certainly say that it's a very solid rendition.
However, the greater work may be the kunoichi Ibuki. The PAK Ibuki strikes me as being at least somewhat superior to the SOTA Toys version. This extremely poseable, beautifully sculpted figure comes an alternate head (both heads seem to make use of the same bangs and ponytail pieces), an alternate set of hands, as well as a hand holding three kunai.
I've long been a fan of the Street Fighter franchise and these two have always numbered among my favorite characters (even the Jean Claude version of Guile) despite being unable to play either well (I can't even get the hang of using Guile's specials...). All things considered, the Ibuki is certainly tempting. Both figures are slated to release in March, which is quickly shaping up to be a pretty full month. Anybody planning on picking up one (or both) of these figures?
