This Month On Edge
When we weren’t doing everything else, we were thinking about stuff like this
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.
