Ryu is the only character to appear in every Street Fighter game and every crossover. Capcom’s unofficial mascot and ambassador for other media. The irrefutable star of the #1 fighting game in history. Pop Culture Shock Collectibles is proud to present their very first 1:3 scale statue of Ryu, one of the most recognizable and beloved characters in all of gaming.
“In a franchise full of flashy, colorful characters, Ryu is simple and uncomplicated. White gi, red gloves and a red headband. That’s it. You can step into any dojo on the planet and find people dressed like Ryu,” said Jerry Macaluso, President of Pop Culture Shock. “And that’s what ranks him up there with icons like Superman and Captain America, characters that prove greatness comes to people because they are humble, kind and respectful, not despite it. By appearance he might look like any one of us, but by forbearance he represents the best of us.”
Included in the Ryu Evolution set is Ryu in his three most indelible looks. Classic Ryu, the attire that’s become identifiable worldwide over the last three decades. Battle Ryu, his hardened, more mature Street Fighter V variant. And Evil Ryu, infected by the Satsui no Hado in an attempt to master the darker aspects of the fighting arts. Each statue will measure a towering 29-inches tall.
This collectible comes with a signed certificate of authenticity and matching set numbers. Also include is an art print by Edwin Huang signed by Edwin Huang and Jerry Macaluso.
