Seeing that there's no thread specifically for Storm Collectibles Action Figure line, I decided to make one. I love the Tekken game on Playstation and for some reasons, the only great action figures that came from this game are the PlayArts Kai of Kazuya and Jun which I didn't have since they're too glossy for my taste. There were numbers of old Bandai figure released from Tekken3, but it didn't grab my attention. When Heihachi was announced last year, I preordered one with hopes that Kazuya or Jin will come next. If not, atleast, I can get Ryu or Akuma from this line as well to go along with Heihachi -- to mimic Street Fighter X Tekken. But after doing some research the other day, I found out that they will indeed do Kazuya next. So I guess, it's just appropriate to create this thread dedicated to their Action Figure line. I know they have a 1/6th scale line, but let's post that on the respective 1/6 thread that we already have.

From what I've seen based on reviews at YouTube, everyone seemed to like it. Looks like they're doing a great job. ;) :good:

I noticed that they somehow market these figs as 1/12, but when I try to search online Ryu's character height for example, it seems that he's in the 1/10th scale rather than 1/12th. The Figuarts counterpart however is near the 1/12 range somehow. I'm sure at the end of the day, it's nice to have some of our favorite fighting game character in scale with each other so that we can do our own cross-over matches. ^_^

Anyways, I will just post here photos taken from their Facebook page during this year's Toy Fair in New York. I will add more info down the line such as video reviews from YouTube and any tid and bits found somewhere. Just browse their main site if you want to learn more of what they've already produced. Most are still available at BBTS. And please, if you find any info or upcoming news, and if you have yourself some Storm's Action Figure, please feel free to post it here.

And to be honest, I really don't want to start another line, but how can I resist TEKKEN now since they already announced my favorite evil dude -- Kazuya. ;)

Man they need some diversity in that MK line up, it's ninjas as far as the eye can see. I get it, easy repaints, but still, two unique molds and a mess of ninjas is the quickest way to kill the line.

I have their Sub-Zero and it is amazing. If they somehow miraculously do any incarnation of Robert Garcia from KOF, then I can't buy that quickly enough. I can also say the same for Charlie/Nash from Street Fighter. I agree with the Samurai Shodown sentiment - I would pick up almost all of those characters. They'd go wonderfully with my NEO*GEO MVS!

Wow. How much do these go for?

Basically, they're in the same price range as S.H.Figuarts. But Storm Collectible ones are bigger and solid.

I posted some links within my text content on the first post. But here's the direct links from what I have posted:

Storm Collectible
https://www.stormco.com.hk/collections/1-12-scale

Big Bad Toy Store
https://www.bigbadtoystore.com/Search?Company=396

Though I'm not sure how much the shipping directly from Storm Collectibles so I added BBTS here since they're cheaper from our favorite Japanese stores.

Here's a video review and comparison from EightySixed Reviews for Street Fighter V Ryu between S.H.Figuarts and Storm Collectibles.

Where are the fight pics?

I’m planning on doing some. I just need to plan out first which moves I’m going to use. ;)

MK3 Sub-Zero and Smoke are definitely on my want list now. I just can't believe that after all these years there are finally high quality figures from the game.

I'm gonna root for these guys just so the Bogard brothers (and Joe) get killer figures.

Don't act like you aren't waiting for the Mai figure to emerge...

Yes, yes, how can I forget Ms. Bouncy.  I actually would have reservations on a Mai figure from Storm though.  They seem to get the "mean and muscular" look down down but "cute and busty" might not be their forte.  I don't know, we'll see I guess.  But in the meantime, AMAKUNI already has my money for the Mai I want.

Evil Ryu and Violent Ken are now available for pre-order at HLJ for JPY 9,500 each

Evil Ryu: https://hlj.com/product/nau10136

Violent Ken: https://hlj.com/product/nau10137

As a long time Street Fighter fan, I couldn't resist pre-ordering these! I do hope Storm considers releasing the regular Ryu and Ken using these molds, as they are the classic looks that I've grown up with.  Their hair, facial features, gi and gloves are really spot on to the original SF2 look. A regular Ryu and Ken would be instabuys for me. :wub:

Hey Brouken. I feel bad you're not in the US. Here it's cheaper to get it via BBTS. Both are just $74.99.

Hi Noel! Thanks for the tip! I cancelled my order in HLJ and placed an order with BBTS instead. Even with shipping, I think I'm getting it for cheaper. Shipping from either Japan or the US comes out roughly the same going to Saudi Arabia. This is my first time buying from BBTS though, so I hope my experience with them will be good. :)
