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.

That is pretty dang cool. Dat Bison :x The more of these I see, the more I want them. I'm equal parts upset and glad there hasn't been any more characters announced. If they were being sold individually packed I might be in the troubles, so far the 2 pack price :shock: has kept me at bay 8-)

Saw that video on their Twitter account. They also posted this still from the video that gets me all kinds of excited:

Never saw Blanka as a large character from the way he was always huddled/scrunched up but I figure beast wars Retrax/powerhug could work for his cannon ball attack o.O :P
& if not fatimus prime for E Honda, alternators/binaltech skids or blaster would work. My wallet is hoping this line is limited to the four figures.

Wait wait wait... I thought Ken was Hot Rod, not Rodimus Convoy. :???:

I'm sticking with Quillfire because he also has a hunched posture,plus a beastly head with pointy teeth, and the quills sticking out of his back give a similar effect to Blanka's hair.

Am I crazy, or would this basically be perfect?

Not crazy. That's what I've been thinking, too.

It would if either toy looked like his animation model. Unfortunately, Quillfire is less than accurate to his onscreen model.

I also doubt they'd dip into RID molds for this line.

Yeah, that's the part that I'll admit actually kills this idea. (that and the unlikeliness of them making more of these things in the first place.) Non-g1 stuff does generally seem to be regarded as disposable filler by the current powers-that-be.

So apparently "Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection" game comes out in May as well so I guess the release date makes sense. The collection looks amazing, too. Going to be spending a lot on SF in May.

Thanks to site sponsor Robot Kingdom over on their official Facebook page, we have a series of packaging images of the Takara Tomy Transformers Transformers X Street Fighter II Figures, for both the Ken vs Chun Li set and the Ryu vs Vega set, respectively using the Titans Return Hot Rod and Generations Arcee figures as base mold, and the Titans Return G2 Optimus Prime and Megatron Voyager molds.

Check them out below, and let us know your thoughts on this bizarre crossover in the Energon Pub discussion boards!

God these still look so much like bad knock offs. I can see what they were trying to do but it just looks a total mess.

It's nice to see them boxed in action poses but Bison(Vega/Megatron/Blitzwing....) feels like it should have been a different pose rather than exposing hollow arms. Mine are definitely being opened and on display, not sure if I'll keep the boxes or bin them to free up space yet.

Human heads on robot figures? They're doing a better job than Star Wars Transformers that's for sure!
