Multiverse Studio Reveals The World Warriors With The ‘Street Fighter’ Mini-Figures
So hey, do me a favor real quick. If you happen to be sitting at a desk right now, look around and check to see if there's a tiny little Street Fighter figure sitting on there anywhere. If there is, great, please continue going about your business. If there's not, well, I think you just realized that your desk setup is tragically incomplete.
Fortunately, there is a solution. Multiverse Studio is set to release a set of Street Fighter minifigures this fall, with designs by artist Miguel Wilson that translate the distinct designs of the World Warriors into three extremely stylized dimensions.
But while the figures themselves are pretty neat -- and as weird as this is for me to say -- it's the packaging that makes them truly fantastic. Each figure -- which, depending on character, will stand between 4" and 5" and retail for around $14 -- will be packaged in a window box designed to look like a coin-op arcade machine. The only way this could be better is if it was actually life-sized, and if Blanka was inside and wanted to be my best friend.
The lineup of the first series includes Guile (with extremely aerodynamic flat top), Ryu, Chun-Li and Blanka, all characters drawn from the lineup of the original Street Figher II. One hopes, though that if they do a second line, they'll eventually get to the real hero of the Street Fighter franchise, Dan Hibiki.
The lineup of Street Fighter mini figures is set to hit shelves this fall. For more information, head over to the Multiverse Studio website, where you can also pick up a plush hadouken for all your throwing-at-people needs.
