These figures are pretty awesome. They always knock the sculpt out of the park, and this one looks to be no different. The articulation is always top notch as well. While I do not own any of their Street Fighter offerings (yet), I have held them in my hands and they are as good as advertised. I do own their Hollywood Hogan Ringsdie Collectibles exclusive and am extremely happy with it. Akuma is one of my go-to plays in the series, so this will probably be the one that finally gets me to purchase one of these.
Street Fighter Akuma is up for preorder now. You can order one of these for yourself and see more info here.
