October 24, 2016 - SAN FRANCISCO, CA
Super7 is incredibly excited to launch a new line of Street Fighter II retro action figures to celebrate the iconic fighting game’s 25-year history. The new line of toys, featuring some of the game’s most celebrated characters, will culminate with a launch party on Friday, November 4, 2016 at the Super7 Mission Location.
"This is a line that we were really excited to make," said Brian Flynn, owner and founder of Super7. "Capcom's iconic characters set the bar for every fighting game that has come since. It has been great to reimagine them as classic action figures." Josh Herbolsheimer, the figures’ designer remarked, “Street Fighter II was one of those games that just destroyed everything before it. Suddenly every afternoon, every weekend was spent hanging out with friends at the arcade or around the TV, smack-talking and showing off our best moves. Being able to celebrate a quarter of a century of Street Fighter II is incredible for Super7.”
The limited edition run of toys features collectible action figures of Ken, Ryu, Chun-Li, Blanka, M. Bison and Zangief for wave I, with wave II expected sometime in 2017. Each 3.75” toy is created in the style of the classic Kenner Star Wars figures from the 70’s, featuring fantastic card art from legendary artist Ed Repka (Megadeth, The Worst). The full set of six Street Fighter II action figures allows endless opportunities to recreate your favorite match-ups.
The launch will be a celebration of Street Fighter II, inviting fans to come in and visit the store for a chance to check out and buy the brand new action figures, while also getting a chance to play an original arcade version of the game.
Celebrate 25 years of Street Fighter II at Super7 in San Francisco’s historic Mission District. The launch party will feature refreshments from Lagunitas Brewery, soft drinks and snacks, and will give gamers the chance to relive the arcade favorite by checking out toys of the game’s most recognizable characters.
The launch takes place on Friday, November 4, 2016 at 7:00pm. Super7 is located at 3253 16th St, San Francisco, CA 94103.
