There are two versions – blue and pink. I got this pink one from Urban Attic, where it is available for S$109. Each comes with a plain shiny black ABS base that has no attachment to the figure. She stands (crouches) at about 10 cm tall and is very petite.
I happened to be at Haw Par Villa yet again, this time with a Canon S3 and a large tripod. So I got Chunli to be framed by a bridge and those Chinese gate thingies to reflect her roots.
1. I’ve always hated the power, muscular appearance of the official Chun-Li designs, so this cute, mini and more anime-ish version is preferred. Her head and eyes are very large in proportion and her limbs are made thin.
2. The paintwork is pretty good especially on the dress. The pink and gold are pearlescent, so she’s all shiny.
3. The hair is cool. I like asymmetrical fringes and hers is very sharp.
4. Big earrings. I don’t really remember any figurine with earrings!
5. The eyes are the angular type, slightly catty and accentuates her pose well.
6. The pose is compact and easy to display. Not particularly imaginative but won’t lean.
1. The legs are ugly. I hate hate hate the brown colour.
2. Not exciting or interesting in anyway, this figure is. It relies a lot of it being "a different Chun-Li", rather than a good figure.
3. The upskirt sucks. What in the world is that?
Some people like the fresh design of this Chun-Li over the overdone power action look. Personally I think Chun-Li stinks so won’t go near this figure even with a long pole. But if you’re an avid video gamer, why not buy this figure and place her beside you for cheerleading when you do battle in the virtual world? I used to want a Saotome Jin trading figure so that I can pwn better at Marvel vs Capcom when using my favourite character. And when I win (which is all the time), I’ll grab Jin and wave him in the opponent’s face shouting "BLOODIA PUNCH! BLOODIA VULCAN!! SAOTOME DYNAMITE!!! WOOOO"
