From Facebook profile for the Hong Kong toy shop Naughty Guy, we have an image taken from what looks to be the next issue of an action figure magazine (probably Figure King, but we will have full confirmation once the scans for it are available too), featuring some interesting Transformers crossover figures, using a range of molds from the past couple of years: Transformers X Street Fighter II!

The four figures shown in the image below are split into two two-pack VS sets: the first, with Deluxes, features Generation Arcee as Chun-Li (春麗 Chun-Ri) and Titan Returns Hot Rod as Ken Masters (ケン Ken, though the Titan Master is obscured by the watermark); the second has two triple-changers as Ryu (リュウ), using the Octane / Optimus Prime mold, and M. Bison (Vega in Japan, and in the writing on the image, ベガ Bega), which repurposes the Blitzwing mold for the main villain of the game and series. Check it out below, and let us know what you think of this bizarre combination, which may be a TakaraTomyMall from the looks of the blurb on the photo - but we'll keep you updated on that front!

I wonder how much of this idea originated from the Blitztron mold having such fitting boots for Bison, as well as being somewhat able to pull off a crossed arms position :lol:

First of, good call on acknowledging Vega as the Japanese original name of M.Bison. ;)^ (As an aside, JP M.Bison is the US Balrog, and JP Balrog is US Vega. 8-} )

And wow, never would have seen that coming. This may be the first time Transformers was crossed with a video game franchise.

It's headmaster I'm obliged to buy them regardless.


These are really cool though and I could use Ken's headmaster as pretender Bumblebee from that bot con idea.

Any transformers we can repurpose them As? If not I'll just make them original characters with similar personalities and names to the Street fighter characters.

Rarely have I ever been so eager to click a link and then be disappointed with what I saw. I love Transformers. I love Street Fighter. I don't love crummy repaints of toys I already sold or didn't want certainly not at all in a badly thought out paint gimmick.

Almost makes me like the GI Joe SF figures that came out when the cruddy live action Street Fighter film did.

Also Ken being much smaller than Ryu makes no sense since they're almost always the same size usually being palette swaps and such. Bison fine as that voyager but Ryu should be a deluxe with Ken as they would team up to take down Bison. Ryu could be white Hot Rod so he and Ken are...the sHOTo-Rods... yes i'm lame.

Hey, guess what? It's ok. Relax. Take some deep breaths or something.

These look like pointless, amazing fun. Here's hoping they don't involve insane campaign trickery to buy!

Ryu's headmaster and color pallet looks like a close approximation to unicorn trilogy Jetfire (a split between Energon and Cybertron). Ken's color scheme is reminiscent of Armada Hot Shot's powered up mode. Bison is too obscured by the watermark for me to guess at. No clue on the Arcee repaint either.

Of course I need these just because it's such a screwball mashup!

Definitely falls under the category of "things I didn't know I wanted". Sure it's cheesy, but they look like fun to me.

Now who else should them make? Some ideas:

Sagat - TR Astrotrain
Camy - TR Windblade
Sheng Long - TR Alpha Trion
Akuma - TR Tidal Wave
Vega (JP Balrog) - TR Wimdwipe (really just because of his sheild)
Balrog (JP M. Bison) - UW Nosecone (for HFG and drill fists)
Blanka - TR Wolfwire
Guile - TR Hardhead

File this under "Things I never saw coming".

Chun-Li should have been TR Windblade instead of T30 Arcee.

I think they went with Arcee because her Leia buns look similar to Chun Li's buns, plus Generations Arcee has the best gams.

and now I need one.

Let's not forget, G.I. Joe did the Street Fighter crossover first way back in the 90's

Sweet. Merciful. Cats!!

TRANSFORMERSxSTREET FIGHTER!!!!!

I'm gonna pass on all of them, as I don't need them. But they sure are nifty!

Paint me very intrigued. This could be a pricey and dangerous rabbit hole with such a large SF roster and the dagnabit vs 2 packs. Chun li and Bison are looking nice. Can't wait for better pics and the heartbreaking pre order prices.

I'd say Ryu could easily be a Titans return version of Beast wars Polar Claw.

Chun Li and M.Bison look great!
Ryu and Ken might need more photos to judge.
