BTW, adding to the Street Fighter excitement in 2011 (for me, at least): Street Fighter Heroclix

I'm glad they got the Mega Man license back.....this company has improved its QC greatly over the last few years....the Sonic the Hedgehog figures are fantastic (still need to pick up the Espio twopack), and It's cool that they get a second chance with Mega Man.

the early figures they did aren't wonderful by any stretch, but I hope the sculpt and articulation they use on the Sonic toys shines through.....Mega Man deserves it, and I really hope for a great 6" scale Mega Man for my Marvel displays.

SCORE!!

The Jazwares announcement reminded me that I hadn't yet picked up Super Street Fighter IV for the XBOX360. It's 39.99 pretty much everywhere I've seen. Between my daughter's bday and Christmas looming...it just wasn't in the cards...

BUT...I just found it at Target on clearance for $9.98!!

I'm stoked!!

I'm with you on SOTA. That is a heck of a line. They came so close to finishing out the most popular characters. Dee-Jay is the most glaring omission, but at least they got to Honda before the line went under.

SOTA's line is my SFII line. Jaz will really have to blow my socks off before I spend anymore money on those characters.

Now, if SOTA ever gets the Mortal Kombat line . . . :wink:


Honda's great. Just don't drop him on your foot if you're not wearing shoes. That's one seriously heavy piece of plastic. Dee-Jay -- *sigh* -- would that it had been.

SOTA doing Mortal Kombat figures. Torture me, why don't you? Imagine what they could do with Goro!

Eh. I think they look okay. Certainly better than the old Gi Joe versions. I'll probably pick them up if they aren't priced out of this world.

I think they look good. I'm still very excited about this line. And the fact that my three face characters (Blanka, Ken & Guile) are in this first wave means it's all gravy from here on out.

The only thing that really "bothers" me is that guile looks like he's getting ready to pimp slap somebody. But I actually find it kind of funny so it won't stop me from getting it. :) Now bring on E Honda and Chun Li.

I like the subtle differences in the packaging between the "classic" packouts and the "SUPER IV" packouts. You can tell the differences yet they will still display nicely and uniformly across the line.

Well done on that mates.

Well they look better than POTC or Green lantern-- So I guess thats a plus-- only ones I might consider are Blanka and Guile (and of course that depends on the price point)

Spotted the street fighter 3.75" figure 2packs (3 of each) for $14.99, and the Mortal Kombat 6" figures too at my local TRU. Across the aisle from DCUC with all the other Collector figures.

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?
