First look! Today we are taking a look at the next wave of S.H. Figuarts Street Fighter V characters – Cammy and Rashid. Neither are out yet, but they are due for an August release in Japan, the States soon after. Produced by Tamashii Nations, they grow the SFV line up from the first two Ryu and Chun-Li. Read on to check out over 95 HD images of them, FIGHT!
First off, both of these were sample copies, so they weren’t structurally what will be available at retail. I won’t go into mechanics specifics due to that. Generally, they have the great range of movement and articulation found in S.H. Figuarts figures, both the initial Street Fighter ones and overall. Rashid is a bit bulky with his baggy pants but overall he was way more fun to pose up and play around with than I was expecting. The face sculpts are great on him. Cammy is also pretty bad ass, but no pun intended, her ass is a bit weird. Functionally she works as a fighter. All moves and positions can be achieved. However, to get there, they went with a weird method for her thong based cheeks. It’s basically connected to her upper and painted to her skin color, so the result is flesh colored ass armor. I am no engineer so I can’t say I know how to do it better while keeping the full range of articulation. From the front, and as a poseable action figure she’s great. When in stance mode on the shelf from behind, ass armor. Take it for what you will.
Bottom line, as fighting action figures these two are superb and go well with the first two. We already have 2 more teased with Akuma and Mika at SDCC so hopefully the SHF roster will go deep.
