The things that caught our eye dur­ing the pro­duc­tion of E291

PLAS­TIC FAN­TAS­TIC Vir­tua Fighter fig­mas www.bit.ly/vir­tu­afight­er­figma

Good Smile Com­pany’s lat­est slug of gam­ing nos­tal­gia is this set of pos­able Vir­tu­aFighter fig­ures. The de­signs are based on the orig­i­nal low-poly mod­els from the first game, and fea­ture Akira

and Sarah in fetch­ing black out­fits and ev­ery jar­ring an­gle you re­mem­ber. Both fig­ures come with in­ter­change­able hands to cover

the var­i­ous moves, and you can even swap out their stan­dard ex­pres­sions for a vic­tory-pose shout­ing mouth. Clear, ar­tic­u­lated stands are also in­cluded so you can pose the fig­ures in var­i­ous mid-com­bat (and, in­deed, mid-air) po­si­tions. The fig­ures can be pre­ordered now, while se­cond-player colour ver­sions – and a Vir­tua

Fighter ar­cade ma­chine – will be­come avail­able at a later date.

I hear that BILL COSBY IN­NO­CENT !!!!!!!!!! was ac­tu­ally just the orig­i­nal name of Kanye’s videogame. It was a PhoenixWright clone.
