Storm Collectibles have been killing it with the fighting figures over the last year and change, and SDCC 2018 saw 3 awesome releases from them. Heihachi from Tekken along with Alex and Shin Akuma from Street Fighter. Today we are taking a quick look at Akuma! This figure features new articulation in the legs and upper body as he rocks his classic hair style – no lion’s mane here. He has a reddish tint, white hair, and veins showing on all skinned areas. The accessories include an alternate gi with his kanji lettering on the back, 3 heads, 4 sets of hands, a Gohadouken blast, stand for the blast, and two flaming effect pieces for the arms. Oh and of course he has his signature prayer beads around the neck.
All in all it’s a really sharp release. I personally prefer this version of Akuma to the standard SFV version and the alternate color scheme on the skin makes him stand out on the shelf. If you dig the line, he’s definitely worth a pick up!
