These figures are being previewed at New York Toy Fair, February 18-21, at Cryptozoic’s booth (#5350) on Level 1 of the Jacob K.

Capcom’s Street Fighter video game franchise launched in arcades in 1987 and immediately made its mark, as players took on the challenge of battling through an international martial arts tournament. The second game in the series, 1991’s Street Fighter® II, became a worldwide phenomenon, with gameplay and design elements that revolutionized the fighting game genre. Chief among these was the ability of players to choose from a diverse group of characters, each with a unique fighting style and a different country of origin. The numerous updates and sequels in the series have continued to be hugely popular, including the most recent release, 2016’s Street Fighter® V.

The various new lines of Street Fighter collectibles from Cryptozoic and Capcom can be viewed at New York Toy Fair this week and will be released in stores worldwide later in 2017.
