    If you're asking me, only Sagat had the sticker over barcode. My Bison had the sticker too. Not Ryu though. But they all seemed legit enough to keep. Didn't look cheap quality like the Jazwares line. But when you say sticker, it's a upc barcode sticker over another upc barcode right? Cause that's what mine looks like.

    They're bootlegs then.
    For the bootlegs they only printed 1 card back, Ryu's, and stuck stickers on the back for the barcodes of Sagat and Bison.

    Yeah, I agree the quality of the KOs are as good as the originals…I’ve seen them in person when one of my import shops brought them in. Reason being that the factory used the original moulds and materials as the official ones.

    They skipped a few paint applications on the bootlegs, but other than that they're good.

    I don't like the bootlegs since that factory is the reason round 4 was delayed and had lower quality. And with them keeping the molds, they're also the reason Dan used Akuma's body rather than Ken/Ryu's.

    Yeah, I neglected to mention the paint applications because IMO they're pretty minor IMO. With regards to the factory situation that SOTA faced...not only was Round 4 delayed but the series had a number of QC problems such as loose joints, bad paint applications etc.

    I recieved it today, and it's pretty funny how high the quality is since it's an unlicensed factory extra. I think I'm going to go ahead and get more, since they are only a dollar.

    A bootleg has better paint and detail then Hasbro's figures, lol.

    Got the SDCC dan figure recently... It's perfect.

    This is one of my very favorite SF figures to date. I have to say I'm a big fan of Dan.

    Now for Zangief!

    Please everyone pre-order the Darkstalker figures on SOTA's site, otherwise we will never see a super articulated Morrigan and Felicia.

    I want Dan but only in pink. So far I can only find tortoise Dan which I am not interested in.

    Picked up SDCC Gouken today recently, and I do like the sculpt however the joints seem super loose compared to any of my other Street Fighter figures. His ankles and shoulders flop around sometimes and aren't very tight... anyone have any ideas how to tighten them up a litttle? If it were a TF ball joint I'd just pop it off and put some clear nail polish on the joint, however, these kinds of figures don't have removable joints... so I'm kind of at a loss at how to fix him.

    Kind of dissapointed that I'm having these problems with such an otherwise cool figure too...

    Good question. My M. Bison's arm fell off right out of the package, and it doesn't go back on.

    Most of the joints on the SF figures are easy to take apart with boiling water. For pegs like the bicep, heat the joint in boiling water and pull and it will pop up off. For joints like the ankles, knees, elbows, etc. you can boil them then use something to push the pin through to take the joint apart. But if by the shoulder you mean the part where it connects to the torso then it might be a bit tougher.

    Mine did that, the left arm feel off right out of the package. but I was able to get it back on. try heating it in hot water or with a blow dryer before you try and re-attach it

    I'll give that a try.

    Hey, has anybody heard anything about the Microman street fighter line? The local shops are still getting solicitations for Sakura and Chun-Li, but there's nothing past that.
