Jazwares Acquires Mega Man and Street Fighter Licenses
Toy Fair 2011 Jazwares Street Fighter And Mortal Kombat
I am very surprised to see Jazwares pick Abel, El Fuerte, and Seth over C. Viper. Then again Jazwares does hate the female figures. Very fun two-packs however.
And with Jazwares making Seth I can finally make Gill and Urien customs.
As interesting as the line-up is, I think I will need to see pictures of the toys before deciding. However, I am still looking forward to the toys!
Ah, finally. I've been for news on this.
Okay, so these aren't the bestest looking SF figures ever. Their joints are very visible, the faces on some are predictably derpy and assuming the accessories are molded on, Guile's gonna be fighting with a comb while Fuerte's gonna fight with a frying pan.
That said, they ARE 4" figures. And there does seem to be a sense of scale. Sagat seems to be extra tall while Fuerte is a tad smaller.
Articulation seems okay. They have that swivel hinge style hips that don't look too good but are otherwise very good in terms of practicality (or at least I hope they're using those hips).
Sagat seems to look the best. Personally, I'll probably get them all, but I'm a crazy spendy person like that. I know I'm being easy on them, but hey, I knew they weren't going to be Hasbro G.I. Joe/Marvel Movies level. I'm just glad they're vaguely almost acceptable, as opposed to completely horrible.
What about the megaman line? Any news on that?
It's a rather subpar line for me.
I'll probably nab a few if they're cheap enough, like $8 or less for the 2 pack (so each fig is effectively $4), but they're definitely not at the "MUST HAVE/FIND!" level.
And I'm a guy who loves 1/18th scale and will buy figs just because it's in that scale.
Ryu and Abels faces, oh god
Just as bad as expected. Sagats the only decent one.
You know, aside from the joints being not skin toned, these look pretty good. Still, I have no real interest in Street Fighter. However, I would pick up an M. Bison if they did one though.
Well, uh... those look disappointing to say the least.
Can NECA challenge Jazwares to a street fight and take the license away from them?
Gonna pass. Just can't get over how they look.
I hope not. I have to say that as someone who has collected SF lines for many years now, NECA made some of the worst figure incarnations despite modern technology.
I think the truth is that the PAK line needs to take over, but re-do Akuma as a measure of good faith.
Or we just hand the license over to Kaiyodo entirely and be done with it. (though, they need to be Yamaguchi style this time)
I'm glad I didn't get excited for these based solely on being Jazzwares, these are just....
I'd rather give the line to Hasbro. They do some dang fine 1/18th scale figs.
These are horrible, I would rather collect the Kid Robot line of Street Fighter figures.
Since it's Jazwares I wasn't expecting much and my expectations have been met.
Ken and Ryu here are showing off more cleavage than the chicks in my artwork.
