I picked up three of the four 2-packs the other day; I apparently dropped out of SF games before they introduced Purple Man and Mexican Wrestler.

But I'm keeping them in the package for a little while, partly waiting to find some good reviews online, and partly because I'm still feeling burned by NECA's six-characters-then-stop line.

I've seen these at the TRU near me -- not bad, really. My only real concern is the company at this point. I remember when Jazwares (I think it was Jazwares) made some Mortal Kombat figures a number of years ago -- 6" scale. Not the ones they're doing right now.
Figures LOOKED great, but take them out of the package and they were basically fragile garbage.
Anybody got these new Street Fighters yet? How's the quality beyond the visual?



I think we may be in for the same thing-- was going to pick some up as I saw them at a TRU this weekend-- however 4 of each set-- and every Blankas right hand had fallen off and was rattling in the package-- One pack it happens-- every pack in the case not a good sign-- And although they look okay-- they also do look fragile-- (like Superhero Showdown Fragile)

I was reading through about 5 pages of a thread about this line on another forum. I was interested, but leery, since I didn't know anything about the company. I'm glad I read up. QC issues abound, with figures just falling apart right out of the package.

I still had to see them up close for myself, and I got a chance to this past weekend. Out of 10 different 2-packs I picked up at TRU, 3 of them had legs and/or feet broken off IN the package. Two more had hip joints that looked precariously close to breakage. I think I can safely pass on these. :roll:
