Product Pre-order Launches March 11th Variant Light-Up Version Also Available


LOS ANGELES, Feb 25th, 2013 (BUSINESS WIRE)— Two masters of combat stare each other down…suddenly, they launch into an attack, splitting atoms as their strikes connect! Pop Culture Shock Collectibles is proud to depict the famous scene of Gouken vs Akuma as it’s next diorama offering. As a companion piece, a variant of featuring light-up energy effect will also be available for those lucky enough to snag it.

“There are a couple vivid moments in Street Fighter lore that really stick in the mind’s of fans.” stated Jerry Macaluso, President and Founder of Pop Culture Shock Collectibles. “This battle between Ken and Ryu’s sensei and the demon Akuma is arguably the best of those moments. The whole idea of Brother versus Brother creates huge drama and stakes.”

With a price of  $330 USD, and a limited run of 300 pcs, this piece will follow other PCSC and sell-out quickly. Shipping is expected in August/ September 2013.


The light-up variant sports the same specs as the above, with a limited run of 200 pcs, and features illuminated “energy” feature that simulates these two titans colliding. Price is $350 USD.


Both items are available ONLY via PCSC’s Direct-to-collector service!

Daniel Pickett
Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Time.com, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post, CNN.com, AssociatedPress.com Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
