It was just months ago when I’ve unboxed the S.H.Figuarts Ryu and Chun-li Figures and now it’s time to unbox the second batch release of the S.H.Figuarts Street Fighter V figures, the Cammy and Rashid figure.
“Here comes a new challenger…again!”
When Bandai and Tamashii Nations announced that they will be doing a Cammy figure, I kinda knew that they will be doing it anyway. What surprised me was their announcement on the Rashid figure – mainly because he was a new figure that was introduced on a very controversial date when they were doing the character reveal for the Street Fighter V game. When I saw the cut scenes and story mode of Rashid, I can’t help but be an instant fan of his character. I really liked how his character has too much personality and he actually was a very fun character to play on the game.
Since CAPCOM just announce the final character for the Season 3 game, I think the hype is back again for the entire Street Fighter V – what better way to keep the hype than to unbox the latest S.H.Figuarts figure for Rashid and Cammy.
I’ll start by unboxing Rashid of the Turbulent Wind!
First of what I really like about both figures is that it’s very consistent, box wise, with the other Street Fighter SHF releases.
The thing I like most about the Rashid figure is that Bandai managed to really keep its personality in the figure.
The figure comes with 3 interchangeable heads (including the default face), 3 pairs of interchangeable hands, a set of wind effects and the additional bag attached to his back.
The head can be changed by removing the top of his head gear and you can just switch over the next head part to it. You’ll notice that the eye-piece of his gear is connected to the entire head gear.
If you notice as well, the figure has distinct paint apps on the muscle parts and on the feet – it seems that they were aiming for the “sunburn” effect or shade for Rashid’s skin tone.
I really like how they carefully added the details on it’s clothing, how they managed to make the layers of clothes very realistic and close to the video game design.
The joints are similar to the Ryu figure, they’ve added extra joints to make it mode durable and more sturdy – which is very fitting because the figures are of the same “Fighting Body” version similar to the first Street Fighter V SHF figures.
Figure joints are also designed very seamless so you won’t see any knee joints on the figure, the pegs are noticeable at the back of the figure instead.
Now we move on to the Cammy figure, at first glance it really looks very nice and very sexy to say the least. My only problem with the figure is that the face plates lacks solid expressions – by solid I mean more intense feel on what Cammy really is portraying. You’ll notice that the expression is kinda blank when you start posing her in different scenarios.
The Cammy figure comes with 3 interchangeable face plates (again this includes the default face), 3 pairs of interchangeable hands and 2 effects – the kicking and impact effect. Also, the beret on her can be removed so you can get a Cammy figure without her signature beret.
Another thing that you’ll notice in this figure is the way they tried doing the joints and paint around the groin area – the pain goes all the way to the body mold while the paint (in green) just covers a certain part of the groin – which I personally find very weird. My figure has a missing green paint on the suit.
I really like how they added small details on this figure such as the weapon holsters on the thighs, the gloves even the buckles around her.
Cammy’s pigtails has articulations too! So you can change them based on what pose you want Cammy to do.
Overall, I really like the Rashid and Cammy figures. Despite some of the design concerns for Cammy, she is surprisingly a good figure to have especially if your into collecting Street Fighter figures. These figures would be a great addition to your Street Fighter V figures, Ryu and Cammy. I can’t wait to get my hands on the R. Mika and Akuma (alternative costume) SHF figures which were announced during the San Diego Comin Con.
You can get these figures from specialty toy stores online and in Facebook selling groups. See more toy reviews in my blog! Stay tuned for more reviews – I’ll be doing an unboxing review for the S.H.Figuarts Dr. Strange and The Spider-man Homecoming figures!
