One of Kidrobot’s worst kept secrets was made official this week, the Kidrobot x Street Fighter Mini Figure Series is coming to a store near you soon! Capcom’s Street Fighter, now in its umpteenth iteration with over 29 million copies sold worldwide, teams up with Kidrobot to take you back to the arcade with the ones who kick-started it all: Ryu, Ken, Chun Li, and the wild man Blanka.
I know I said it before, but The Blot is so not excited about this release. It could have been really awesome, but these figures just look like every other 3” licensed blind box series KR has released the past 2 years. I may be a little too harsh on this release, but to be honest I’ve come to expect more from Kidrobot and these just didn’t deliver. I guess we’ll never know the reason these figures were produced, but they will make great fodder for customizers!
All 12 of the original World Warriors, including the Psycho-Powered chase, are blind boxed and stylized in 3” vinyl. Gaming’s best known fighters, each with their own unique fighting style, feature articulated arms just itching to deliver that final sonic boom. The Kidrobot x Street Fighter Mini Figure Series will go on sale beginning Thursday, July 7th, and will retail for $9.95 per blind box.
