Available now is the Tekken 7 – Heihachi Mishima Special Edition 1/12 Scale Action Figure by Storm Collectibles. This release is a color variant of the excellent, and previously released, Tekken 7 – Heihachi Mishima 1/12 Scale Action Figure. The Special Edition version of Heihachi features a white gi as opposed to the dark gray one in the initial release. The figure includes three interchangeable head sculpts, multiple interchangeable hands and two effects pieces.
Our friends at Bluefin sent the figure along for us to check out. After the jump you can see our full gallery of the figure.
Tekken 7 – Heihachi Mishima Special Edition 1/12 Scale Action Figure by Storm Collectibles
- Outstanding overall sculpt
- Three very good head sculpts
- Nice selection of interchangeable hands
- Removable uwagi is a nice touch
- Excellent articulation
- Paint work is handled nicely
- Only difference from original is the white gi
There’s almost no difference from this release and the original release. The Special Edition version sports a white gi, but the head sculpts, hands and effects pieces are all exactly the same. Even the packaging is identical to the original release. Unlike Street Fighter, where alternate colors area big part of the franchise dating back to Street Fighter 2 Champion Edition, Tekken 7 focused more on alternate outfits, but those outfits do have some alternate colors for fighter who chose the same look for the character.
This release is great for fans who may have missed out on the initial release, or is perfect for fans who want alternate color releases. I would have liked to see some alternate portraits or different interchangeable hands to separate it from the first version. The bottom line is that this is still a stellar figure with a great sculpt, excellent articulation and lots of interchangeable parts.
