    Wow, his hand is like two times the size of his arm. Did Rob Liefeld sculpt him?

    That aside, I wish that was the Vega I had as a kid.

    I am sure most know this by now, but let me explain for those that don't. Yes, this is Vega as we know him in the states. In Japan he was known as Barlog/Balrog, M.Bison was Vega, and Balrog was M. Bison (which was short for Mike Bison, a Mike Tyson parody). Due to confusion they are now just called Claw, Dictator, and Boxer in tournament scene, and that is to help with the language and localization differences.

    The proportions of Street Fighter anatomy always did take a few liberties, especially when IV rolled around and continued into V. These SHF figures are kind of an amalgam of those games plus classic II with some of the beefiness toned down.

    Maybe it's just the pictures here but I'm not a fan of how uniformly black the suit is. I guess the same is true for the actual film but at least there were charcoal and gunmetal variations there. Here he looks like he joined the X-Men circa 2002.

    Me too. Their “make more characters exclusives” kick is getting slightly annoying

    Got my IW Hulk yesterday (took forever for TCP to get him in). I’m a little underwhelmed. Normally I’m pretty good about knowing whether I’ll like something before it arrives, but compared to the glowing reviews his is just good. I thought he could work as a generic hulk for me, but I’m not as in love with the headsculpts in hand and while he can strike some nice poses and has good heft, he is more dull and a bit more finicky than I expected. The long wait for him and reveal of the new ML hulk may have blunted things too. Don’t get me wrong, he isn’t bad - dang expectations.

    “Reality is often disappointing”

    In all seriousness though, that sucks. In what ways is he finicky? Seemed really awesome in pictures to me, but those are my expectations, not experience

    Nice quote! This is a little tricky. I expected to open him up and instantly put him in some dynamic poses that look amazing and found that it was a little harder to actually do. His torso movement is great (waist and mid-torso), but his legs only come up so far forward, his head is a little limited in how much it tilts and looks up, and his arms move lots of ways, but I found them hard to pose “well” (maybe I just need to try more). I like his feet though. Once you get him in a pose, he is terrific, but the ease and variety are a little off from what I thought they’d be. Miles better than the first SHF and the figma though.

    Gotcha. I was about to jump on it, but as I’ve alluded to in previous posts here, once I saw Banner was going to become a version of Professor Hulk in Endgame (assuming the concept art is true), I decided to wait and see how they could pull off a figure for that design.
    Lucky for you though, with that amazing looking ML two pack with Wolverine, you could definitely use that version instead, despite the head not looking like MCU Hulk
