Tamashii Nations has posted the product page for their upcoming Street Fighter V – S.H. Figuarts Classic Costume M. Bison (Vega in Japan). In Japan, the names of a few of the Street Fighter 2 era bosses were a bit different than they were in North America and Europe. In Japan M. Bison was known as Vega, Balrog was M. Bison, and Vega was known as Balrog. The general consensus was that Capcom feared that Mike Bison too closely resembled real life boxer Mike Tyson in name and appearance, and also felt that the final boss needed a stronger name than “Vega”.
The figure includes interchangeable hands, swap out face parts, a set of folded arms, and a display stand. It’s not listed what the display stands is used for, but it can possibly be used for his Psycho Crusher special move. M. Bison stands at 6.5″ tall. For the figures release in Japan, it is a Bandai Premium Web Exclusive. Pre-orders go live on august 2nd, with a release set for January 2020. The figure is priced at 7,480 Yen (about $68 USD).
