Storm Collectibles "Ryu" Ultra Street Fighter II Pt.2

Continued from my previous review, the likeness of the four head sculpts is great and they represent Ryu's different expressions in the video game. The Japanese characters "風林火山" are clearly printed on the plastic belt.

Ryu's white karate pants are well sculpted and its top is removable which is made of soft plastic.

The red headband which was original worn by Ken has become a signature symbol of Ryu's appearance in Street Fighter II video game.

Storm has done a good job on the paint application as the skin colour of all body parts looks the same.

Although the articulation of the upper body is better than the lower body, the figure still can hold a lot of great poses.

Now, it's Ryu to perform his Tatsumaki Senpukyaku aka Hurricane Kick "竜巻旋風脚" which will be followed by...

Ryu's famous technique Hadouken aka Surge Fist "波動拳" to his opponent...

Next to Ryu's air attack or counter attack technique Shoryuken aka Rising Dragon Fist "昇龍拳"...

HADOUKEN!! As the figure has tight joints, no support stand is required here.

Suddenly, a fireball hits Ryu in no's from someone he knows...To be continued...

Neca "Aliens: UD-4L Cheyenne Dropship" CineMachines Series

Nothing much to talk about the packaging. It's very basic and has a clear window in front to reveal the content within.

The white paint besides the cockpit is to replicate the "headlight" and the rotary cannon is mounted on the nose of the Dropship.

There are four weapon bays in total. Two are mounted on the top and two are mounted on the side of the fuselage. Each weapon bay folds out a station to carry missiles or rockets.

I am impressed the Dropship comes with a M577 Armored Personnel Carrier (APC). You can take out the APC from the Dropship by unlocking the plastic piece under the fuselage.

The Dropship is mainly made of metal but some parts are made of plastic. Overall, the paint job is good with right amount of weathering.

The APC is made of plastic and surprisingly, its wheels are functional and they rolls very well.
