Toy Tuesday The Best Street Fighter Toys

first_imgStay on target Mattel Unveils Fashionable ‘Star Wars’ x Barbie DollsToy Tuesday: Yo! It’s The Best ‘G.I. Joe’ Toys Fighting games are one of the essential pillars of the industry — from Street Fighter II reviving the arcade industry in the early 1990s to the thousands of competitors and spectators at EVO every year in Las Vegas, the one-on-one game of human chess just keeps getting better. And the one franchise most responsible for that is Capcom’s flagship. Ryu, Ken, and the rest of the World Warriors have become iconic characters through their decades of battles, and of course they’ve made the jump into the toy shelf. Here are our picks for the Street Fighter toys you need to own.Tamashii Nations Ryu FigureLet’s start off with the iconic protagonist of every single Street Fighter game. Ryu laid the groundwork for what a fighting game character should be, and he’s appeared in dozens of games laying down fireballs and rising uppercuts to anybody who challenges him. This ultra-detailed Tamashii Nations figure is exceptionally poseable, meaning you can recreate pretty much every one of his iconic moves on your shelf. He even comes with a backdrop and plastic Hadouken with stand. If you’re building a Street Fighter toy collection, this should be your first player.Get it at Amazon.comDhalsim PVC FigureIt may seem bizarre to buy a figure of the India-born fighter that doesn’t move, but how would any normal action figure ever manage to match his stretchy limbs? I mean, aside from a “Stretch Armstrong”-style rubber thing. You might not be able to pull this one around like taffy, but as a PVC model it’s super dope. Dhalsim is puffed up and releasing his signature Yoga Inferno attack, ready to incinerate any foolish jump-ins who didn’t notice that he had a full bar of super meter. Really nice paint job and comes with a backdrop that mimics his SFII stage.Get it at Amazon.comFunko Savage World Blanka FigureAs a real 80s kid, Funko’s “Savage World” line really scratches a nostalgic itch for me. The general body shape is basically a rip of the classic He-Man musculature, but the company then goes the extra mile and grafts designs from a wide variety of pop culture franchises on top. They’ve done a handful of Street Fighter figures in the line, but for the money you can’t beat Brazilian electrical wildman Blanka, ready to shock you and somersault into your face.Get it at Amazon.comStreet Fighter Transformers Ken Vs. Chun LiOne of the absolute weirdest crossover toys of all time, in 2017 Takara Tomy teamed with Capcom to create a line of figures that used traditional Transformers molds and then gave them Street Fighter-themed paint jobs and accessories. This two-figure set takes Ken and Chun-Li and reimagines them as heroic Autobots Hot Rod and Arcee, changing from futuristic cars to humanoid warriors and back in the blink of an eye. It’s so bizarre it goes all the way around the other side to awesome.Get it at Amazon.comPlay Arts Kai Ibuki FigureIntroduced in Street Fighter 3, Ibuki brought the arts of ninjitsu to the fighting franchise. She had radically different mobility options powering her tricky mixups, capable of tossing kunai blades from her jumps and dashing through foes while mixing them up on wakeup. She’s pretty cool and has been a staple of the series ever since. This Play Arts Kai figure from Square Enix is both stylish and detailed, depicting the schoolgirl ninja ready to spring into action with alternate hands and faceplates.Get it at Amazon.comStorm Collectibles Zangief FigureWhen Street Fighter II dropped, everybody was flabbergasted by the Red Cyclone’s special move, the Spinning Pile Driver. Do a complete circle with the joystick before pressing a punch button? How was that even possible? The burly grappler single-handedly created a character archetype for fighting games, struggling to get in close before unleashing high-damaging command throws and mixups. This Storm Collectibles figure gives you Zangief in all his well-muscled glory, with three interchangeable heads, multiple hands and a typhoon effect for his spinning double lariat.Get it at Amazon.comPlush HadoukenSay you want to fling energy blasts at your foes but you don’t have the self-control to train for years to develop your body and mind to the peak of human perfection. We’ve got you covered. Well, at least sort of. The stuffed plush Hadouken from Multiverse Studio is a life-size recreation of Ryu’s trademark projectile attack, ready for you to unleash upon friends, family or co-workers whenever they piss you off. And it’s so soft and squishy that even a direct hit won’t knock your target out. That’s a good thing in this context.Get it at Amazon.comStreet Fighter Deck Building GameLooking to cut down on your screen time? Nursing a case of joystick thumb? But still want the thrill of defeating your foes in hand-to-hand combat with the use of some of the Street Fighter series’s most iconic characters and moves? We’ve got you handled, good buddy. Cryptozoic’s Street Fighter deck building game allows you to square off against your friends in duels with Ryu, Ken, Chun-Li and the rest of the crew, traveling the world to battle bosses and learn new fighting techniques.Get it at Amazon.comPlay Arts Kai Guile FigureThe flat-topped ex-soldier with the Sonic Booms is another one of Street Fighter II‘s veterans, and Guile stood out from the pack both with his charge-based special moves and his completely bangin’ theme song, which has been remixed and repurposed hundreds of times but still slaps. This wickedly cool action figure from Square Enix’s Play Arts Kai line captures every muscle and vein on his meaty arms and comes with an alternate head, a pair of hands and a Sonic Boom plastic attachment so you can zone out your foes with ease.Get it at Amazon.comKotobukiya Juri StatueIntroduced in Street Fighter IV, the long-legged tae kwon do fighter works for the criminal organization S.I.N. to punish anybody who tries to interfere with their operations. She’s a vicious and brutal opponent capable of inflicting massive damage with her Feng Shui Engine, implanted in her eye socket and covered by a patch. This sleek, sexy statue from Kotobukiya depicts Juri poised and ready to strike, with incredible detail in the fabric sculpt and paint job. Based on a drawing by illustrator Shunya Yamashita, she’ll bring intrigue and glamour to your toy shelf.Get it at Amazon.comTamashii Nations Ken FigureIf we start with Ryu, we must end with Ken. Originally intended as nothing more than a palette swap of the original fighter, a glitch in the code of Street Fighter II made Ken Masters’ uppercut have more invincibility than his counterparts. That subtle distinction went on to inform all future incarnations of both characters. While Ryu is a lonely wanderer, Ken is a family man, returning home after each tournament to his wife and kids. This detailed, very poseable figure comes with two facial expressions, extra hands and a flame effect for his Shoryuken uppercut.Get it at Amazon.comMore on Epic ‘Lord of the Rings’ ToysBest Funko PopsMost Incredible ‘Transformers’ Toyslast_img read more
