Street Fighter fans, the king of muay Thai is coming for your money. Pop Culture Shock Collectibles recently unveiled its third-scale statue of Sagat, and it looks awesome. The extremely detailed statue is 36.5″ tall and comes in three variants.
I remember playing lots of Street Fighter back in the day. Chun-Li was maybe the hottest character to ever be in a fighting game. While she wasn’t quite this exaggerated in the games, she sure is here, complete with that itty bitty waist and that round thang in yo face, to quote Sir Mix-a-Lot.
Fro Design Company turned the stages in Street Fighter II into a series of beautiful 18″x 24″ travel posters. The illustrations don’t copy the entire stage, but show just enough that you’ll recognize which one it is.
Milestone reminds us how far Street Fighter‘s art has come with these terribad 2″ busts. They’re 3D versions of the character portraits that appear in Street Fighter II after you’re defeated.
Seeing Ryu and the gang beat up makes the “Continue?”
Earlier this year, BigBoysToys launched its Street Fighter The New Challenger line with a kick ass Ryu figure. The toy maker has stayed busy and has since released a Ken figure and a Chun-li figure. Like Ryu, both collectibles have light up effects integrated into their respective diorama stands.
Add a legendary projectile to your pillow fights with Multiverse Studios’ officially licensed Street Fighter Hadoken Plush Ball. The 9″x 14″ plush is based on Ryu’s version of the Hadoken. Or a yeti’s poop.
Finally, a Hadoken weaker than Dan’s Gadoken.
Capcom and 3D printing licensing platform Source3 unveiled the first officially licensed 3D printed Street Fighter character at the San Diego Comic-Con. It’s a portrait of Ryu based on the cover art of the PS4 exclusive Street Fighter V, his tree trunk arms and head-sized fists popping out of the frame.
Back in 2013 we saw an old piano that was turned into a controller for Doom. The Sound Fighter project had a similar goal – play Street Fighter Alpha 3 on pianos. But whereas the Doom hack simply mapped controller buttons to piano keys, Sound Fighter mapped certain moves to chords.
Hong Kong-based toymaker BigBoysToys is working on the next best thing to Street Fighter Amiibo. Its Street Fighter TNC line feature miniature figurines of the World Warriors, with a diorama stand as well as lights and sound effects.
I don’t know about you, but to me Christmas is all about Street Fighter. Maybe that’s because I celebrate Festivus, and we perform feats of strength all through the day. So Street Fighter is a big part of the holiday, naturally.
I guess this is a thing now. After seeing the hilariously boring Fish Plays Pokémon, software developer Andrew Hill wondered if he could make the same setup but for a fighting game. The result is Fish Play Street Fighter.
Unlike many of its predecessors, Street Fighter IV and its updated versions change the in-game camera’s perspective when characters perform their finishing moves. This is of course done to take advantage of the games’ awesome visuals.
To raise awareness about unhealthy eating, illustrator Alex Solis started Famous Chunkies. It’s a series of caricatures of superheroes, villains and other popular characters that illustrate what they would be like if they were fat.
I’d totally be down with becoming chunky Ryu if it meant I could conjure burgers.
French artist Gauvain Manhattan bought six old paintings from flea markets and then painstakingly wove replicas of each painting. He didn’t replicate them perfectly though. Instead he turned the real world subjects into virtual ones by adding characters and other elements from video games.
Alain Wildgen converts scenes from old video games to 3D artworks by hand. For each game, Alain looks for a good screenshot online and prints that on paper. He then adds depth to the scene by cutting the print into several pieces and using foam rubber to raise some of the pieces above the others.
When cats fight, it’s best that you steer clear and let them resolve the issue themselves. I don’t know about you, but I’m not too eager to step in between a cat fight, especially when the claws are out.
