Quick question: with the toys having both names, are they the Transformers characters, or the SF characters? Or both?

I'm imagining this being Prime, Megs, Hot Rod, and Arcee all cosplaying at a convention on Cybertron during a ceasefire. :lol:

We'll have to wait and see what their bios say.

The way they were labelled as still being Convoy/Megatron/Hot Rod/Arcee...




... it looks like it's some kind of partnership, presumably through the Titanmaster partnership, however, using the Gen Arcee mold rather than TR Arcee messes up that notion.

Which then begs the further question of what is the

I'm slightly disappointed in the mold choices just based on color schemes.

M.Bison/Vega looks a lot like Megatron in jet mode. They at least look different in tank and robot modes but they both share the same color scheme. I would've went with Galvatron instead. You'd still have the boots and have the shoulder pads now too. Plus Galvatron in those colors would be amazing.

Ryu looks a lot like a cross between Octane and an unpainted Optimus Prime prototype. Again, somewhat similar in colors but at least different enough. If he had to be the voyager, maybe Broadside or Alpha Trion instead. He'd look too similar to Astrotrain or Megatron if those molds were used. Any deluxe would've worked except Getaway.

Ken looks too close to Hot Rod. Way too similar. Both are red with yellow spoilers. Blurr could've worked just as well. Maybe he could've been the voyager instead. Alpha Trion, Megatron, Broadside all could've worked maybe even Sentinel Prime. Maybe switch Ken and Ryu? With that deco, he might be different enough from Optimus to not be so bad. A white Hot Rod would've looked good too.

Chun-Li makes so much sense being Generations Arcee but as others have pointed out, it ruins the theme. Titans Return Arcee wouldn't work other than the face though. Does Takara even have access to the TR Arcee parts? You'd think yes but who knows for sure. Maybe TR Windblade could've worked. She has the puffy shoulder pads and the thunder thighs with a feminine torso and arms. Plus the faceplate could kinda work even if Arcee's would be better. A blue Windblade would be amazing as well.

I'll get them all anyway though as they do look good, especially Chun-Li. It's just a shame that they're TTMall exclusives since that makes them a little more expensive than I'd like.

Time for me to weigh in...

When I read the title I was like "OMG GREATEST THING TO EVER HAPPEN IN MY LIFE".
Then I saw the pics and said "oh".

Now though, after some thought and additional (and much nicer pics) I've warmed up. I'm a huge fan of SF so I'm in, but my two biggest problems are:
-Would it have killed them to give these guys some new faces?
-The price.
I don't usually complain about price, but for what they are they seem kinda exorbitant. Ultimately what sold me was the pics of them in their signature fighting poses 8-)

It's the 30th anniversary of Street Fighter, and not the 20th anniversary of Street Fighter II.

It's the 25th anniversary of the SNES port tho, and 2018 is the 25th anniversary of Super Street Fighter II. ;)

That said, I don't think it's meant to celebrate anything.

I was going by the information given to us, but that is clearly not correct. Will edit, thanks!

Don't really need these, though they do look interesting.

I could totally see them doing:

Sagat from Astro Train,
Zangief from Broadside
Guile from Hardhead
Dhalsim from Triggerhappy
E. Honda from TopSpin
Vega / Balrog from Mindwipe
Blanka from Wolfwire
Balrog / M.Bison from Galvatron maybe?


The New Challengers:

Fei-Long from Blurr
Cammy from Windblade
D.J. from Chromedome
T. Hawk from Blaster

With this being the 30th anniversary of Street Fighter 2, Takara has teamed up with Capcom to bring us a Transformers Street Fighter II crossover. This crossover is two sets of straight redecos (meaning no mold changes). These figures were shown at the 2017 Tokyo Comic Con, and we have images below, coming from Twitter user 7777_diver.

Below we can see Ken from Takara Tomy Legends Hot Rod paired with Chun-Li from generations Arcee and M.Bison (Vega) from Titans Return Megatron with Ryu from Titans Return Optimus Prime. These are Takara Tomy Mall exclusives set to be released in May 2018 and are priced at 8640 Yen for the pair of deluxe toys and 12960 Yen for the pair of voyager toys.

There is a pre-order campaign goal as well. If 3000 are ordered through Takara Tomy Mall, the figure stands (seen below on the show floor) will be included with the sets.

The lighting is always tricky in these conventions so if you want another look at these figures, we posted their official images here. If you are interested, you can see where you can preorder these figures here, and check out the official announcement trailer below.

The best is Chun-Li, by far.

I'm cool with the crossover concept. It's a wacky, ultimately fun crossover. But damn... the size class choices are way off for Ryu & M Bison (Vega), they should be in Deluxe class. Big guys likes of Honda, Blanka & Zangrief should be Voyagers if they decide to do it. If they don't need to stick to TR, Honda can use the Bulkhead mold from TF:Prime. Blanka can use Generations Rhinox's mold? TF: Prime's FE Starscream is almost perfect for Dhalsim.

So much possibilities... just thinking which mold through the ages best fits for which SFII character can be a ton of fun.

Too bad this crossover line probably won't last more than a year this it's an anniversary celebration special. Thus, not much more than these 4 characters.

I still cant decide if the bison figure would make a good flywheels because they keep putting him in dorky poses...

Just want to "nicely" point out that it is not the 30th anniversary of Street Fighter II as that game came out in 1991, it is the 30th anniversary of the franchise itself, as the first game just titled Street Fighter came out in 1987. In that game the player can only be either Ryu or Ken.

That's not what the campaign was. The campaign was that the first 3,000 orders would get the stand if they could reach it by 11/27.



The campaign ended on 11/26 when they reached the goal. All orders placed after that don't come with the stand as it now states on the order pages. "This product "Dedicated display stand" is not included."

I'd have to disagree on Blanka. Screw the size classes, at least in this case, I can't help but feel like Quillfire's mold would be PERFECT for Blanka.
