Playmates Toys, Capcom, and Nickelodeon announced the upcoming Street Fighter vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles collection, timed with the game’s 35th anniversary this year with an unveiling of a pair of two-character sets during Licensing Expo. Following last years Cobra Kai vs. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles collection of two-character figure sets, this is the TMNT’s newest pop-culture collab mashup.
When the Street Fighter series leveled up the combat video game scene in 1987, its iconic characters — such as Chun-Li and Ryu — became household names. Now the team will face off against the sewer-dwelling, crime-fighting, pizza-loving TMNT for an epic ’80s matchup that will make you want to tease your hair up high.
Each 6-inch figure in the collection is highly poseable with multiple points of articulation – from ball joints at the head, shoulders, and hips to split joint elbows and knees, and more — to allow for epic “vs.” poses. The Street Fighter figures are authentically detailed to match the likeness of the characters in the Street Fighter II video game, and the two-character sets come in ‘80’s video game console-inspired, window box packaging.
Pairings includes, Ryu vs. Leonardo, Chun-Li vs. Michelangelo, Guile vs. Raphael, and Ken Masters vs. Donatello. The first two sets — Ryu vs. Leo and Chun-Li vs. Mikey — are set to arrive at retail stores later this fall. Cowabunga, dude!
