OK, this is my first post here and admittedly I haven’t been playing Street Fighter for years and years or anything remotely along these lines the only times I have really been into it was 1994 when was like 5 and 11 years later at the age of 16.
Although I’m sure nowhere needs to hear my life story I just like making somewhat of an introduction on forums. Anyway I’ve been really interested in more the world of Street Fighter lately with the Udon comics and the stories behind the games (although I am EXTREMELY fond of Alpha 2 & 3).
In addition to the story I’ve been really interested in lately is the merchandise and although not a big figure fan I have been getting into figures lately (more due to all the Sin Ciyt merchandising I buy) and anyway I think SOTA have been great doing what they’re doing with the Street Fighter line.
But I’ve always wanted other people’s opinions aside from a friend or two who can give somewhat informed suggestions. Anyway here I go:
Series 1 - Ryu, Sagat, Chun-Li, Bison, Sodom
Series 2 - Ken, Vega, Cammy, Blanka, T-Hawk
Series 3 - Guile, Adon, Sakura, Balrog, Gen
Series 4 - Fei Long, Akuma, Ibuki, Birdie, Remy
Series 5 - Guy, Rolento, Juni/Juli, Zangief, Dee Jay
Now thus far I think they’ve made some interesting choices with each series, all of which were based on votes. The first series clearly has the major characters by default (…and Sodom :xeye:), while the second series continued this, as did the third in ways and as can be seen each series got less themed and more obscure in ways.
I’m fond of completion and although unlikely I believe that SOTA should make every attempt to cover every Street Fighter characters even those completely in obscurity (Geki would make for a great figure :P). Although there are so many possibles I’d like to propose mine and if possible hear others…?
Series 6 - Dan, [Thin] Bison, Rose, Hugo, Oro
Series 7 - Dhalsim, Cody, R. Mika, Ehonda, Necro
Series 8 - Alex, Charlie, Karin, Urien, Twelve
Series 9 - Sean, Gill, Elena, Dudley, Yang
Series 10 - Makoto, Q, [Alpha] Chun-Li, Gouki, Yun
Though this doesn’t really coincide with my comment about obscure characters being included I wanted to have a realistic idea for this incuding some individual characters concepts:
- Each character with the typical extra hands and heads
- Yang and Yun with magnets in their skateboard and rollerblades respectively ala ‘Canon Spike’ Cammy.
- The [Thin] Bison and [Alpha] Chun-Li were not my ideas but being realistic SOTA had them as nominations and due to this will probably have their way in eventually having them produced.
- Charlie with sonic booms accessories, Dan with hadoken hand, [Thin] Bison same as Bison and Gill with his fire and ice hands.
This concludes my idea, though filled with flaws that can be accredited to many things:
A) I needed somewhere to vent some creativity.
B) It’s about 1am here.
C) It’s exam week and I’m procrastinating instead of studying.
D) I’m hoping this will encourage people to better my idea and thus write and post their own.
Thanks for reading and PLEASE make your own ideas and post them, I like writing my own only half as much as I like reading others.
