Another catch up gallery today, this round for S.H. Figuarts Street Fighter Ken and Sakura. Both continue the smaller 6 inch scale line of more classic looking Street Fighter figures by Tamashii Nations. Ken comes packed with 3 faces, 2 sets of hands +1 for his signature pose and a Shoryuken energy effect. Sakura has 3 faces, 2 sets of hands, a Hadoken blast and stand for it. Ken is particularly sharp, pairing well with the previously released Ryu. Both could easily stand by themselves as a representation of the series on a mixed shelf. Sakura is faithful to the character and will of course also pair well with her hero Ryu.
These are currently the last 2 SF figures to be revealed by Tamashii Nations. No word on if the line will continue or when after this. While I personally love the Storm figures, these are also well done, featuring more of a classic look. I’d be happy for them to continue with a focus on SFII era characters, let it build slowly over time. For now, I’m happy with Ken and Ryu to battle in scale with my DBZ and other SHF figs!
