A Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike Collection

I’ve turned truly obsessive compulsive this year by starting a collection of sorts. I’ve seen people collect for systems or regions etc etc and that all seemed like too much hard work and effort and then find space for. I do like people who look to collect for a particular game or franchise though and I’ve seen a great Mega Man collection recently for instance.
So I thought to myself I’d quite like to collect but I think it’s going to have to be for a game or series I really like and I’d get a lot of satisfaction from. So I’ve decided to go for a Street Fighter III collection but mostly for 3rd Strike.

I think the difference between a normal game collection and what I want is that I’m going for pretty much anything related or about 3rd/SFIII, so books and tournament DVDs for example and hopefully art too.

I’ve a limited budget so it’ll be slow going and there’s a lot of really obtainable stuff I’m glaringly missing, but since January 2009 when I made a realistic New Years Resolution for this collection, I’ve managed to get a lot of good stuff I thought would take years!

So on to what I’ve been able to collect so far and if you want to see any photo’s go here

I’ve also bought a slim line JPN PS2 so I can play the best port of this game. I’m still looking for Tournament DVDs and pretty much anything related to SFIII or 3rd Strike as well as the usual ports, arcade boards and all the different regional releases!

  1. Yun’s Hat
  2. Posters for all titles.
  3. Any toys/models of the characters.

If you’ve got anything 3rd Strike related, like anything in the same vein as the above then give us a shout as I’d be interested in buying it! :tup:

Hey where did you find Volume 1 at???

Good luck, if your done post up some pics would like to see it!

This very forum :wgrin:

Great stuff. It’s old news but maybe you haven’t noticed this yet:

Yes it’s him playing Urien :o

Do want!1!

Any chance of seeing the Kuroda DVDs (primarily the Ryu and Ken editions) on Youtube? Or is there a way to order them online?

Sadly no, not on my channel at any rate unless circumstances change.

As for ordering online: http://forums.shoryuken.com/showthread.php?t=171175

Also managed to get hold of a flawless copy of the JPN PS2 Ltd Ed, in transit at the mo but pics when it arrives.

Not even the jigsaw has been opened o_0


I have the ken one and am looking to sell it. PM me if interested.

oh man where did you get that All About: Street Fighter III: The Characters book? that seems like a must get

Ebay for that one :slight_smile:

Behold, my Limited Edition version of Street Fighter III: 3rd Strike for the PS2 finally came! I bought if off a guy I used to play on LIVE back-in-the-day™ but doesn’t play it much anymore so he agreed to sell it on to me:tup: He also threw in the US Brady Games’ strategy guide for SFAC too. What a guy!

Nice, phat box :wub:


The largest of it’s contents is the Gamest Mook Guide No. 196, which is a recompiling of Gamest Mook Guides 184 and 194. (I’ve bought No. 184 off ebay in the past week :slight_smile: )
Its thick and contains so much detailed information (albeit in Japanese) along with and a whole host of random jazz, the pages are ram packed. Not all of it is in colour but the majority is. The paper quality is gorgeous too.





Also included is the actual game itself plus a DVD containing exhibition matches and help on character strategies I think.


The last aspect of the Limited Edition package is a…puzzle! The guy hasn’t even opened it as the plastic wrapping is still intact! I think the image itself is a fan-art piece rather than anything from an official artist?


The guy also threw in the US Strategy Guide book which is what the above book is like but in English. It also covers Hyper Street Fighter II: Anniversary Edition along with 3rd Strike.


At the back is the official sound track for 3rd Strike as well.


It’s a very useful guide and gives very detailed breakdowns on characters, their strengths, weaknesses, frame information for their moves, specials, supers, colour guide, general strategy, advanced tactics e.g. Charge Partitioning for Remy and Urien, best match up, worst match up and how to use them effectively. You couldn’t ask for more.



I love collecting 3rd Strike stuff :wub:

have there been any recent co-op cup dvds?

I might have to make a post on here. Show you what a real collection looks like :wgrin:

Btw, you interested in Gamest 3rd Strike VHS? I believe I have an extra one to sell.

Where should i get the Babanpaku 2008 DVD?
I mean, it would be great to see all thouse monsters facing each other
on this unbeliveble tounament. Not mentioning that RX was there.
I really want to order it but unfortunil unfortunately the web its closed
or thats what i think and when it was open i didnt knew how to order
because of the Japanese text in the web.

can you burn me a copy of sbo 3s 03, 05, 06. willing to give you a decent amount of cash for each (being totally serious).

Man, I only have the SFIII:3S for PS2 [NTSC-J] and a SBO '07 DVD of 3S and that’s it XD Nice collection there TheShend!

So, I went to the gas station the other day to get some condoms, and as soon as I enter I recognized Necro’s stage music… I thought it was probably an electronic song with that necro music being sampled but it wasn’t. Then as I was leaving, Dudley’s theme started. Ever since that day I want my 3rd Strike music CD.

thats fucking dope. ^^^
