figma Akira Yuki & figma Sarah Bryant

Today’s main feature…!

Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

Today I’m going to be taking a look at FREEing’s Virtua Fighter figmas, starting off with…

From ‘Virtua Fighter’, the world’s first 3D fighting game released back in 1993, comes a figma of Akira Yuki! The figma is designed to recreate the look of Akira from the original Virtual Fighter game! You can pose him in various classic attacks including his ‘Tetsuzankou’. Keep this figma by your side and remember the good old days at the arcade!

  • Using the smooth yet posable joints of figma, you can act out a variety of different scenes.
  • A flexible plastic is used for important areas, allowing proportions to be kept without compromising posability.
  • He comes with both a standard expression as well as a shouting expression for his victory pose.
  • A large variety of interchangeable hand parts are included to recreate various moves.
  • An articulated figma stand is included, which allows various poses to be taken.
  • A 2P Color version is planned to be announced at a later date.

“You’re ten years too early!”

figmas made to faithfully recreate the original 3DCG graphics of the original Virtua Fighter! How can something so retro still be such a fresh idea?!

This first figma is Akira Yuki from SEGA’s masterpiece ‘Virtua Fighter’! Even the blocky appearance of his back has been faithfully preserved!

△ The rounding of his heels and upper arm are perfect!

You can even see a photo of him performing his classic ‘Tetsuzankou’ move over on the product page!

The body has been made slightly larger than most figma, and just a quick little movement of the arms and legs allows for a quick change in his pose!

Now he looks ready for combat! (∩`ω´)⊃)) 

The knees and hips are also nicely articulated allowing you to pose various different moves from the game! ♪

△ Poses like this make you want to pose him with an opponent!

He also of course comes with more than just the calm expression above!

You can also pose him shouting!! (*´Д`)=з


WINNER!

But… it’s not a fighting game with just one character…

So let’s give him an opponent! ★

figma Sarah Bryant

From ‘Virtua Fighter’, the world’s first 3D fighting game released back in 1993, comes a figma of Sarah Bryant! The figma is designed to recreate the look of Sarah from the original Virtual Fighter game! You can pose her in various classic attacks including her ‘Somersault Kick’. Keep this figma by your side and remember the good old days at the arcade!

  • Using the smooth yet posable joints of figma, you can act out a variety of different scenes.
  • A flexible plastic is used for important areas, allowing proportions to be kept without compromising posability.
  • She comes with both a standard expression as well as a shouting expression for her victory pose.
  • A large variety of interchangeable hand parts are included to recreate various moves.
  • An articulated figma stand is included, which allows various poses to be taken.
  • A 2P Color version is planned to be announced at a later date.

She is… rather sexy!!

Even with a block old-school appearance like this you can still easily tell the difference between the bodies of male and female characters!

Just look at the curves of her bottom!

It’s quite the dynamite body!! (੭ु ›ω‹ )੭ु⁾⁾♡

While modern day 3DCG looks incredibly realistic, there is definitely something about this retro CG that really captures the hearts of gamers!

Sarah also comes with a shouting expression to display her in the heat of a battle! (`・ω・´)

This expression really makes her look ready for a fight! ♪ 

They both have such blocky faces, which means that taking photos from different angles really makes for quite a different impression!

A figma stand is included to keep them nice and stable, which means you can also pose them preforming a kick with ease! ★

The ponytail also is fitted with a joint for slightly different nuances in your poses! Enjoy all sorts of classic poses from the game and make your very own original poses as well! (๑•̀ㅂ•́)و✧

YOU WIN

Display them both together for double the fun!
