Capo Toys Street Fighter Banner

The Street Fighter Ryu Kickstarter has ended. With pledges just over $8,000, the project, unfortunately, fell below the goal of $85,000. The first wave was to consist of Ryu, Sagat, Chun-Li, Blanka and Guile. The figures were meant to be in a 7″ scale, with Sagat coming in the largest at roughly 9″.

With the Kickstarter funding for Ryu unsuccessful, what this means for the status of the line? I’m not sure. I am sure, however, that the crew at Capo Toys have something up their sleeve. I’ll be sure to keep you all up to date of any new info.

Funko ReAction Figures

It looks like the folks at NECA have started an action figure revolution when they introduced NES style recolors. Those NES themed ideas have been “borrowed” by more than few companies. Now, it looks like Funko is getting in on the act. They recently posted up a photo that shows off a bunch of the upcoming ReAction Figures.

Within the picture, we see a few new, previously unannounced, figures. These include a Jason Voorhees NES Version, a Freddy Krueger NES Version and a Glow-In-The-Dark Creature From The Black Lagoon (not NES themed, but new). This is the first evidence that they are doing NES style figures. Also in the picture we get a look at additional Horror Series ReAction Figures and the Firefly ReAction Figures.

UPDATE:
Apparently, the NES variants are exclusive to Toy Tokyo.

Starcraft II Kerrigan Queen of Blades Statue 002

Starcraft fans don’t get much in the way of high end collectibles these days. That looks to change with a new statue coming from Sideshow Collectibles. Today they have fully revealed their Starcraft II – Kerrigan Queen of Blades Statue. We did snap a few photos of the statue at San Diego Comic-Con 2014, but now we have much more info on the upcoming statue. From Sideshow:

A creature consumed by pure rage, Kerrigan has been infested, tortured, and hunted. Now, measuring over 25 inches tall, the once-terran ghost of Sarah Kerrigan emerges from her chrysalis, reborn as a vengeful new agent of the Zerg Overmind with the fate of the universe in her hands. Capturing Kerrigan’s feminine yet alien characteristics with extraordinary handcrafted detail, the Kerrigan Queen of Blades Statue will be a must-have for StarCraft fans.

Standing at over 2 foot tall, the Kerrigan Statue is a thing of grotesque beauty that you’ll need to clear some serious shelf space to display. Priced at $379.99, the statue goes on pre-order starting Thursday, August 21. Read on to check out a few photos.

Ryu Press Release

There’s less than 24 hours remaining for the Capo Toy Street Fighter Ryu Kickstarter. Right now, things aren’t looking too hot, but I’ve seen some stranger things happen. If you’re holding out on pledging, now’s the time to jump in. As of this writing, the pledges stand at just over $7,800. Best of luck to Rocco and the Capo Toys crew on the last day.

We’ll update after the Kickstarter ends as well. If there are any major updates between now and then, I’ll try and post them up here. For now, you can check out the Kickstarter by Clicking Here. Also, don’t miss our previous photo gallery showcasing, what would be, the 7″ Scale Street Fighter Series 1 Figures.
