Street Fighter II x Transformers Crossover Toys Revealed in Figure King. Yes, Really
ExVee - Monday, November 20, 2017


We have an early look inside the pages of this month's Figure King magazine, and while we once thought all it would have to show us was Masterpiece Dinobot, it seems we were quite mistaken. The feature seems to be the reveal of an upcoming pair of exclusives from TakaraTomy, redecoing select Transformers molds as characters from Street Fighter II. The individual who apparently took the original photo was evidently so worried about being credited that he obscured a large portion of the contents of the page with his name stamp, but we can see enough to know who's in the lineup. Keep reading to find out more!


Indications from the text on the page are that these will be TakaraTomy Mall exclusives, to be delivered next summer, in either May or June, as the release date text is difficult to make out. The sets consist of Ken vs Chun-Li, using the Legends Series Deluxe Hot Rod and Arcee molds respectively in character-specific deco. Hot Rod's Headmaster similarly seems to be decoed to resemble Ken in its individual robot form.

The second set is Ryu vs Vega - Vega being the original Japanese name of the character western audiences know as M. Bison. This uses the Titans Return Voyager Optimus and Megatron figures decoed as the Street Fighter characters, marking the first availability of the Megatron tooling in a Japanese release of the mold.

The smaller set appears to be priced around ¥8000, while the larger appears to be in the neighborhood of ¥13000, though we can't read that text clearly. Unfortunately because of the highly intrusive watermark we can't see much detail on either M. Bison or Ken, but we should be getting better quality scans of the magazine soon, and we'll bring them to you as soon as they're available so we can all have a good, hard look at this inexplicable madness.

Because for you, the day Bison graced Transformers was the most important day of your life. For Bison, it was Tuesday.

More Legends News
Since we heard about TakaraTomy's "Power of Prime" line, we've been speculating that the reduced prices (relative to Legends series) indicate straight repacks of the US toys. While nothing is 100% certain until we have them in hand... those sure are US toys in the Dengeki Hobby photo gallery we've mirrored here. In particular, Jazz's markings are all 100% identical to the US release in these photos - even if these are entirely the US-release toys, whether the promised running change will apply to the TakaraTomy release is currently unknown. Good photos though - keep reading to see more!
The ever reliable Tagoal has posted new in-hand images of LG-EX God Ginrai! The figure is a re-release of the individual TakaraTomy Godbomber and Super Ginrai, and... basically, what you get for this fancy boxset is clear windows on Ginrai, chrome on Godbomber, and two new Headmasters. Is that worth buying this set twice? Probably not, but we think it'll probably come down to how much you like Minerva and Cab. Keep reading!
We've reported previously on the retool of Cerebros and Emissary - or if you prefer, Fortress - to feature likenesses of the "Downtown" comedy duo. Tonight we have an official page for the mailaway exclusive item, complete with clearer stock images of the larger figure and its Titan Master/Headmasters, showing both of the faces as well as the face that will adorn whatever Fortress or Grand Maximus one may eventually dock this item to. We're still waiting to find out what exactly might go on the sound chip for this edition. Click through to see the photos.
The opening alone is worth the price of admission. TakaraTomy has posted a new 100-second ad for their Street Fighter II x Transformers toys to YouTube, and it's a nice little thing with a great adaptation of the Super Street Fighter II Turbo intro. Keep reading to have a look!
Singapore fangroup Planet Iacon broke the news - and site sponsor BigBadToyStore has just confirmed - that TakaraTomy's version of Power of the Primes begins in May! Titled very similarly as Power of Prime, the figures listed are being released in a format seemingly identical to their US releases. But, what's interesting is what's not listed from Wave 1.
