    Shop around a bit and you can find it for around $180 :) 
    Sounds quite a bit more reasonable, right?

    Well, to be fair, the only reason I find anything interesting about anything on this forum at all is because of a childhood connection.

    But yeah, not interested. The same way I have zero interest in a Street Fighter figure repainted to look vaguely like a Transformer character. Would I buy a Ryu figure repainted in Optimus Prime colors? No. That doesn't even pass the laugh test.

    Hopefully Han Solo\'s head will be better sculpted. The last time he and Chewbacca formed a Millenium Falcon, his face looked so sad, like he was really depressed about his lot in life.

    Well Tamara doesn't have to include a base, which I'm thinking they added 50 dollars to the price.

    Some people just like things because there fun. Ryu Prime is ridiculous, but thats part of why it’s so fun. It’s also fun to see two of your favorite things together, regardless of how much logical sense it would make.

    Yeah exactly, I would love to see a crossover between transformers and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Will it ever happen? Ha ha ha probably not

    Still no sign of a 77 Bee Prime 1 statue... I love those things, but can't justify the price. I'd jump at a 77 Bee though.

    Same feeling here. I would have bought them, just for the SF feeling, but only if they would have been cheaper.

    Some people are just addicted to buying things, and when they run out of things to buy, anything will do. The act of hunting and buying becomes more important than the having.

    I like Transformers very much, and I like Street Fighter (and fighting games in general) very much. I own merchandise from both franchises. Lots. Too much, if I'm being honest. But there's still a lot of merchandise from either before I get to the point I've run out and need to start thinking about this Frankenstein stuff. I mean, just the mold they used for Ryu... I don't even own all the repaints/remolds that are of actual TF characters yet, some of which I'd really like. And if I wanted another representation of Ryu, there are so many options out there in terms of figures or statues that actually look like him. And what's the overlap? What's the connection? Ryu as a truck? Ryu doesn't even drive!

    If you want it, go for it. I never said it shouldn't be made or that no one should want it. Only why I didn't.
