To celebrate the first opportunity for fans to buy the 7-inch and 2.75-inch collectibles based on the classic Street Fighter® video game franchise, Yoshinori Ono—the renowned producer of several games in the series—will be signing and giving away figures at Cryptozoic’s booth (#115) on Friday, July 21 from 3 to 4 p.m.
“We are excited that the fans at Comic-Con will be the first ones to get their hands on Street Fighter Knockouts and Lil Knockouts and are very honored that the great Yoshinori Ono will be joining us,” said Jeff Parker, Creative Director of Merchandise at Cryptozoic. “We think Street Fighter fans—and you can count all of us at Cryptozoic among them—are going to love these new lines of figures. We worked closely with our friends at Capcom to make sure the designs remained true to the legendary video games.”
Street Fighter Knockouts are 7-inch vinyl figures that feature the powerful women from the video game series. Packaged in display-worthy window boxes, Series 1 includes Chun-Li, Cammy, and Sakura. The figures were designed by Pedro Astudillo and sculpted by Anders Ehrenborg.
