Following the news from earlier this week about Storm Collectibles releasing a Mortal Kombat 1:12 Scale Ermac figure as one of this year's San Diego Comic Con exclusives, we now have word of three more variant figures they will be offering at the event.

First they will be offering a Tekken 7 - Heihachi - Exclusive "Special Gift" edition figure which will feature his alternate color costume with a fun EXCLUSIVE "SPECIAL GIFT" available nowhere else in the world! He is one of the main and the most recognized characters in the Tekken series and includes: 
3 x Interchanging Head Sculpt
1 Exclusive "Special Gift"
8 x Interchanging Hands
1 x Electric Wind God Fist Effect

Next up is Street Fighter V video game – ALEX. His classic appearance is his "Nostalgia" costume in SFV. The San Diego Comic Con variant features Alex in his alternative grey and black outfit. The Figure Set includes:
3 x Interchanging Head Sculpts
8 x Interchanging Hands
1 x Flash Chop Effect
1 x Flash Elbow Effect
1 x Stand with SFV Logo

Finally they will be offering Street Fighter V Shin Akuma. This is the form Akuma takes when he becomes almost one with the Satsui no Hado. This San Diego Comic Con exclusive is newly developed with all new articulation in the lower body and featuring a new design for the upper chest. He can shrug off the gi top of his costume and go shirtless. The figure includes:

Storm Collectibles def knows how to reuse a figure mold with these video game figures. On the one hand I can't say at the cost of these figures I have a huge desire to purchase the same figure over and over with different paint apps or a different accessory, but I do agree with you guys as a con exclusive it makes more sense.

The thing though is most "Con" exclusives are in name only these days. Most if not all get sold online directly by the manufacture or some other 3rd party, these included. I feel like people think if they slap the words SDCC exclusive on it, it will make people want to buy it more, and to some extent they are probably right, but the more and more they do it how long is that going to last?

I totally agree, love how Hasbro has been doing variants these last few years, but I know a lot want the exclusives more than the regulars. I hate when a company brings out a main line character at a convention, that's a deal killer for me and will make me lose interest in a line real quick.

Seems like Storm has got the right idea, plus with SF...you got all the different player select options, that just begs convention variant, lol.

Again, this is what I am talking about.

Variants. All companies should do the same thing or at least focus more on that. Instead of offering some very cool figure that everybody wants and the scalpers will go asking ridiculous amounts of money on them, go for these.

Hasbro offers exclusives that will be later on released for the general public, but they still are a little different. Companies like Mezco, screw us up with figures that everybody wants.

Storm goes again the right way with the color variants and those that want to put a nice fighting scene display can buy them and be happy. The cost increase is minimum, they can milk as much as possible from their molds and everybody is happy.

Be cool, be like Storm Collectibles.
