Street Fighter V has one ugly collector’s edition in the works

2 min read


Collector’s editions! Higher-priced versions of that damn game that you want, but with superfluous extras that’ll be gathering dust quicker than a short-sighted investment in mint-on-card Jar Jar Binks toys from 1999’s Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace. Damn you George Lucas, damn your gravy-necked hide!

Anyway, Street Fighter V is joining in on the collector’s edition party, with a package whose prime hook is a statue of Ryu trying to hide his underarm body odour. Here’s what the prototype looks like so far, with details from Capcom:


Going on sale for MSRP $99.99 in North America, the Street Fighter V Collector’s Edition is the ultimate package for fans of the series! Check out all the contents below (and please note that above image is stll work in progress):

SFV game disc – The standard SFV game disc and case is included in every Collector’s Edition.

10 inch, fully painted Ryu statue  – Meticulously articulated and commanding in stature, the sculpture depicts Ryu preparing for his next battle. The Collector’s Edition packaging is specially windowed as well so that you can see the top half of the statue from the outside.

48p hardcover artbook  – Jam-packed with design sketches and other behind-the-scenes materials that shed light behind the development process of the game.

Code Cards for additional downloadable content:

  • Udon Digital Street Fighter Comics – A collection of some of Udon’s finest work with the Street Fighter comic series.

  • SFV Soundtrack Sampler – Curated selection of some of the best tunes from the game.

  • Twitch One-Month Subscription to Capcom Fighters channel – This bonus is actually included with every standard copy of SFV, and gives a free one-month subscription to the Capcom Fighters channel on Twitch, which grants exclusive access to special Street Fighter chat emoticons, as well as video archive access.

Now I’m not saying that the statue is bad, but it is one that could do with a better pose than the mock-up presented above. Hell, give fans a Ryu who is in the middle of a Hadouken or Shoryuken. Give fans something that sparks off energy. Or better yet, give me an M Bison option, because today is Tuesday.

In addition to all that, there’ll be pre-order costumes available, which don’t really apply to us locally. They’re all tied to various chain stores in the US of A, and include such alternate ring attire such as Rambo: First Blood Ryu and Judge Dredd Hefner M Bison:

I can’t wait for all of that content to be bundled into Street Fighter V: Pokémon Platinum Edition

  1. Ryu. Meh. People who like him probably choose vanilla as their favourite ice cream flavour.

        Personally I’m quite happy not to taste of steak. 😉

            The resemblance is uncanny

            You mean I have to try tasting like steak before knowing for sure?

      Vanilla is my favourite ice cream flavour. Because it is the best ice cream. The proper stuff though; not Dairy Maid nonsense. It needs to be rich and creamy, made with eggs and butter and cream, and real vanilla pods. Also, it’ll kill you.
      I prefer Ken though. 😛

        Lemon sorbet is the best flavour, unless you’re being technical about sorbet not being ice cream. In which case Honey & Hazelnut flavour rules my world. Either way, you’re wrong. ;P

    They could have just put him in a type of guard cancel stance. that would have been far better than this one.

    Too much plastic crap! :/ I like the odd figurine, like the next man, but I wish they’d start to think out of the box on this one…
