She looks odd. The mask looks like milhouse glasses because the eye holes are more squared than rounded and a bit bigger. Her eyebrows should either not show or be blond. This is nitpicking as she def isnt the worst of the bunch. I think Laura might take that title

Dont think there are any. The chase figures are Sim and Mika.
After looking closely at the stock images there are apparent QC issues. Looks like much of the paint app isnt square with the mold. Curious to see if this actually carries over to the figures themselves or these stock images were still early on before final product

The case shows a '?' in what looks to be Necalli, but he's 3/40 where Mika's 1/80.

'16 NYCC GID Bison came in today and at first it was a let down. Profile is thin, hat doesn't come off, and the shoulder pads looked better in pictures. Then I remembered how fun the glow in the dark feature is. It's not as bright in person since the camera's pulling in all the light. Here are some pictures:

Nice! Thanks for sharing! How much did you pay? They're like $35 or something on eBay and I might bite soon. Anyone selling here?

Sweet! That's awesome creativity at work!

I've been wondering, there must be a different artist for Series 3, right? I wonder why certain characters like Ryu and Ken and Bison look significantly different from how they traditionally look and how they look in SFV.

Also, I've been on the kidrobot email list and I haven't seen any sales at all it seems, even like 10% off or more. I won't be able to afford a box of Series 3 at $200, but hopefully they have a sale sometime soon.

Lastly, any ideas on customs using Series 3 figures? I don't even know if any of the characters have a nice base for customs like Dhalsim did from Series 1-2.

If you played SF5, you would notice that most of the fighters have aged. Most obvious with bison and sim.

Id be curious too. A lot has changed about these figures. They look taller and slimmer in the profile. The ears look a lot larger and sculpt seems more generic. I think its a style change and not so much trying to portray that they are older. Cause this new bison looks younger than series 1 and is missing many features seen in the series 1 bison

Not sure if your post is in response to me, but I wasn't talking about age, I was talking about appearance. just from memory when I first saw the new figures, Ryu and Bison were standouts.

Great way to line them up by order of appearance! I could never figure out how to line them up:

I can't wait to buy each character individually when people start buying BB's and post on Ebay. That's how I collected the previous series... cost me a lot of money, but I couldn't be happier! I love Kidrobot and Street Fighter :)

The hunt for R Mika begins.

By the way, do any of you have defective Karins? She doesn't stand properly.

Got my box in on Saturday: both the Karin tips over.

Got all but two characters: Dhalsim and Mika.

These are my extras that came in the box: Karin, Necalli, Birdie, Fang, Ryu, Ken

Curious in seeing how everyone's box turned out.

The search begins.

The figures look pretty good quality. Are your figures in the picture placed in the order of where they were in the box? Do they come with sticker/character cards? Thanks!
