With the first series of Diamond Select Toys’ Street Fighter® Minimates nearing completion, Diamond Select Toys is excited to announce two exclusive two-packs only available through Action Figure Xpress
The first twopack includes the beautiful yet deadly Chun-Li versus her incredibly powerful nemesis, M. Bison – each in their Player 2 outfits. In addition, the pink Chun-Li and the grey M. Bison will feature all-new faces to further distinguish them from their Player 1 counterparts!
“With so many different costumes available, the Player 2 versions are the most recognizable to fans,” says Michael Leavey, Diamond Select Toys’ Marketing and Sales Coordinator. “Anyone who has played the Street Fighter games against friends will recognize these exclusives.”
Not to be outdone, the second exclusive twopack features the immensely popular Ryu versus the unstoppable Akuma – also in their Player 2 clothes. The grey and blue Ryu is a noticeable departure from his classic white and red costume – the most recognized Street Fighter outfit from any of the video games. Akuma, dressed in red and black, is also quite the variation of his Player 1 coloring. Also featuring new faces, these popular Street Fighters are ready to fight!
Both exclusive twopacks will feature the usual Minimate articulation and stand two inches tall. Energy blasts are included with each character as well, to simulate their advanced fighting techniques. Scheduled for release this March, more details can be found at www.shopafx.com and www.diamondselecttoys.com
