"Any news on SOTA SF figures?" , posted Fri 7 Oct 01:22post reply

Any news? I'm figuring that wave 3 Sota SF toys will be released this month since this is "Street Fighter" month with the comic book coming back and SF Alpha Generations also being released. But I'm wondering if Sota or if anyone else has mentioned what extras will be packed in with each figure.

I think its annoying that wave 5 has already been revealed but we're still waiting on wave 3. At least SOTA is still churning them out. I really want every single SF character in toy form.

Now I just need a series 1 white Ryu...

Round 3 has been out at Hot Topic stores for the last month and a half. Although I ordered a set online I broke down and got Guile and Balrog. I think the rest are supposed to be arriving on the 20th of this month.

Other than that there hasn't been much news. But I am not too bothered as the newest marvel legends just came out and are keeping me busy.

*Edit*

BTW, I know a place you can get White Ryu for $20 + shipping, which is probably the best deal out there, but I don't have the link on hand at the moment. I will post it when I get home.

Well, what I know. I had two sets on order from Voyager Toys. In the bizarre curse like status Voyager Toys seemed to just disappear. That is twice I had to reorder. The first time was with Southern Island when they decided they wanted to switch businesses. Right now I have 2 sets of wave 3, an Adon variant, and a case of wave 4 on order from cornerstone comics. Their web site has round 3 arriving in stores about Oct 10th. As mentioned earlier, HT has had them in stock for like 6 weeks now. Last I read from Jerry was they were experiencing the absurdity with shipping on the boat and customs. He should have info about that very soon. I think the variants are supposed to be Oct 20th. These dated continue to get pushed back though.

Even more annoying, Round 6 voting is going to start soon unless plans have changed.

http://www.cosmicclutter.com/store/Street-Fighter-c-1158.html

Sorry, forgot yesterday. Although Chunli and Sodom are WAY more expensive then they should be $20 for Ryu, Sagat or Bison isn't a bad deal.

I am thinking of getting Bison from there to complete my round 1 MOC collection.



BTW, I was wondering if anyone here was around a store that still sells those X-Men Marvel Legends boxsets with the exclusive Rogue figure. I know it is as ugly as sin(like every other female in ML except Storm and Phoenix), but it would appear that is the only incarnation of Rogue we will probably be getting. It is $30 on ebay + $10 shipping on average.

Thanks for the link GekigangerV but that store looks slapped together. Have you ordered from them before?

Sorry I can't help you out on ML X-Men set. I saw it a few times when it was out in retail. Long time ago. :(

I have that figure. Do you want it MoC? If not, we might make a deal and exchange figures.

Sure, let's try to work something out. I e-mailed you at the address listed on your website.

I just ordered a Bison, so I will let you know how that turns out. If they turn out to be the real deal, it appears they have ML3 Ghost Rider and ML5 Blade still for order so I will try and get those too.

Damn, does that website still exist? It's been in limbo since forever. Anyway, I mailed you back.

"Hey Shin" , posted Fri 14 Oct 06:55post reply

Just to let you know Shin, these guys are legit. I got my Bison in the mail today. So if you are still interested in that Ryu I am sure they could provide it for you.

But beware, as certain SF Round 1 figures were prone to break. So be extra careful while opening the figure and moving the joints for the first time. My original Bison figure's arm fell off, but lucky for me SOTA replaced the figure. However, they have since run out of replacement figures.

"Re(1):Hey Shin" , posted Fri 14 Oct 07:44post reply

Thanks for the heads up Geki. I think I will order him. He's the only figure I'm missing. I actually got a "player 2" grey Ryu just in case I couldn't find the white one. In some ways, the grey one is more fitting cause Ryu's gi is always dirty. But the grey ryu is missing the red hand guards and headband. (They're blue.) I gotta get me an honest to goodness white Ryu!

The round 4 figures are going to get a crazy amount of repaints though. Remy's my favorite character of all time, I think I might get like 8 versions of him. SHIT!

"Varients at SOTA site minus a couple" , posted Fri 28 Oct 03:18post reply

http://sotatoys.com/prod_excl.htm

Most of the series 3 variants are there, but they don't have Sunburned Sakura or Black Gen up yet. And no, the exclusive Black Sakura isn't Sunburned Sakura.

Oh and Shin, did you get your Ryu yet?

"Corner Store Comics and Suncoast have them" , posted Fri 28 Oct 13:55post reply

I got an e-mail from Corner Store Comics saying my order was shipped yesterday, and when I took my friend to the mall to pick up her copy of Nintendgos with the teal DS I noticed several boxes of SF3 at Suncoast...

So they're finally out at non-Hot Topic stores people! Now we just gotta wait for 'March' for Darkstalkers! (yeah, I know SF4 comes out before then, but I'm looking forward to DS more... gonna make me a Pirate Queen Shark figure)
