FanHome is offering a new Street Fighter subscription service with highly detailed and painted figurines inspired from the Capcom video game/arcade franchise. Each box includes new PVC figures, magazines and brochures, and through the subscription you will receive free gifts of Street Fighter 4″ statues that you can also collect, and these differ from the 3 1/2″ – 5 1/2″ figurine series. The subscription starts at the introductory price of $1.99, which is for Ryu plus the magazine. Ken is the second figure and you also get the magazine for $7.00. The additional figurines plus magazine are also available through the subscription, so head on over to FanHome for all the details.
In the video, we have an in-depth look at the brochures and magazines that are included in this box, as well as the figurines. So go check that out.
Thank you to FanHome for providing their Street Fighter Subscription Box #1 for review.
The shipment comes in a standard subscription shipping box, with the FanHome logo on the front.
Once opened, you see the brochures on top, such as the introductory letter, and some details about the subscription (see the video above). The brochures give you information about all of the subscriptions being offered, along with images as a preview of what else is available. A poster is also inside showcasing many Street Fighters characters on one side, and advertisements on the other, such as a look at the free gifts for Street Fighter, and other information.
Ryu and Ken come with their own magazine, which are also numbered on the upper right hand corner. Inside the magazines, are origins about each character, a history of the franchise, and other tidbits of information that you might not have been aware of. Each magazine is designed similar, but each given different information about the franchise, including Capcom.
Ryu and Ken are both hand-painted and are sculpted in fighting poses that are inspired likely from Street Fighter II, as that is one of the most popular games and designs of the characters. Ryu comes in a light grey karate outfit, with a dark grey wash, a black belt with Chinese symbols, a red bandana on his head, and red gloves. Ryu has a blast effect attached to his hands, as he’s ready to fire it at his opponent. The blast effect is a light blue translucent plastic and cannot be removed from his hands. His facial details are nicely done, and he is in a scream pose. His hair is also sculpted and cast in black, and given brown eyes.
Ken comes in his red karate outfit, with a black belt tied around his waist. His right hand also has a orange flame effect piece made of a translucent plastic, and also cannot be removed. He is sculpted in an upper cut fighting pose, with the right leg up. His left wrist is also given a orange glove, and his facial details are nicely done, with blonde hair, blue eyes, and an open screaming mouth. Both figures are also barefoot, with sculpted toe nails that are not painted, and both stand on a base with their names on the bottom.
Overall, FanHome has done a fantastic job on these with the overall quality, attention to detail and overall likeness of the characters. This is a great inexpensive collectible that gamers and action figure collectors will surely love, and makes a great display piece with your games, consoles, and action figure collection. My recommendation would be to subscribe, especially if you are looking to enhance your display.
