AKUMA (named as GOUKI in Japan) is one of my favourite character in Street Fighter series. He was first appearing in Super Street Fighter II Turbo as a hidden boss. His Shun Goku Satsu is also a famous Super Combo in the series.
“Hmph. So it’s you… (貴様か… Kisama ka…)” – Akuma in Street Fighter V
In Street Fighter V, he has a new transformation with longer hairstyle and his traditional dark blue Gi. The 神人 “shin” kanji is seen on his back of the Gi when performing the Shun Goku Satsu. Storm Collectibles has fully revealed Street Fighter V – Akuma 1/12 Scale Figure. The figure is based on the costume released in Street Fighter V. The figure set includes:
3 x Interchangeable Head Sculpts, 8 x Interchangeable Palm, 1 x Gohadoken Effect, 2 x V-Trigger Effect – Dohatsu Shoten, 1 x Stand with Street Fighter V Logo
*Bonus item: Additional Gi with 神人 “Shin” kanji at the back.
The New outlook is different from the past and like a Disney Character as Lion King. Some of my friends prefer the classic outlook, but I am fine with that. Especially I think putting him with ”Pon de Lion” of Mister Donut is perfect.
