Bigboystoys Launching Street Fighter Figures of Ryu and Ken
When you see this Ryu figure and the background set he comes with, you're going to feel all sorts of nostalgia for Street Fighter II.
Shoryuken reports that pre-orders started at ToyGarden for Bigboystoys' debut Street Fighter figure, Ryu. T.N.C.-01 Ryu is rendered in an adorable chibi style as Akuma's could-be son is seen doing his iconic move, the Hadouken. You know what's even better? Ryu comes with LED lighting inside the fireball that activates when you push a button on his display stand. When you push the button, one of gaming's most iconic sound bites can be heard. That's right -- it plays Ryu's fireball yell from Street Fighter II. This figure also comes with a diorama background that sets into Ryu's base, which provides his unforgettable Japanese dojo setting behind him, with health bars and a timer included.
You can pre-order T.N.C.-01 Ryu now at ToyGarden for roughly $78. While Ryu's figure is launching in just a few weeks, T.N.C.-02 is already being teased by Bigboystoys. Let's just say, Ryu knows this guy quite well...
