Here comes yet another challenger! With Storm Collectibles first releases in their 1/12 scale Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat lines hitting stores this month, it’s time for more future reveals. Next up from the Street Fighter V roster is Zangief. The Russian grappler who once danced with Mikhail Gorbachev looks to finally be getting the figure he deserves. Storm Collectibles posted a pair of teaser images earlier today, and they look stunning!
The last Zangief action figure we got was many moons ago from SOTA. And if we’re being honest that thing broke if you looked at it the wrong way. This new one looks incredible and since his look hasn’t changed much (unlike Ken) between games, it will work well with a variety of displays. Zangief will hopefully be joining the other Storm Collectibles Street Fighter V figures like M. Bison, Ryu, Ken, and Alex.
Stay tuned, as I’m sure we’ll hear more about this with New York Toy Fair only a month away!
