First 4 Figures is creating a sister series to its Mega Man statue line called Capcom All-Stars, giving the game company a chance to highlight even more characters it’s not doing enough with. First up: Viewtiful Joe.
With the $US210 light-up exclusive and $US190 normal version now up for preorder with a Q4 2015 release window, Capcom has plenty of time to remind fans why their cel-shaded hero was cool enough to get throne a cameo bone every once in a while.
It’s a beautiful stature, and that pose if just perfect, but seeing old Joe here just makes me wonder what other Capcom All Stars are in the pipe.
Let’s think. They could certainly do something with characters from the Breath of Fire series, as they have not done anything in ages. Ooo, how about Captain Commando, or maybe someone from Darkstalkers? Even better, just make figures of everyone on the “Capcom” side of Marvel Vs. Capcom 3. That would be a good start.
Oh, and maybe one of these while they’re at it.
The point here is most of my favourite Capcom franchises are either dead or stagnant or going mobile, so an immobile statue is an excellent way to remember them.
