PCS Collectibles Challenges You To Take On Their 1/3 Scale Street Fighter M. Bison StatueJose Lopez
Street Fighter is one of those franchises that has transcended its origin as one thing, in this case a video game, and spread to become whatever it needs to be in several other media. This time around, its a collectible statue that the Street Fighter characters have manifested as and what an awesome statue it is. M. Bison, the granddaddy of fighting game Big Bads, is getting the PCS Collectible treatment, so let’s take a brief look.
I remember the halcyon days of taking a bus with my friends to the closest arcade, which was located in the back of a Nathan’s hot dog restaurant. This was back in the early mid-90s, so it was prime time for fighting games like Street Fighter II and Mortal Kombat. The character of M. Bison was, in a lot of ways, pretty intimidating to me, since only the better players would choose him. Even after all of this time, Bison still has a weight for me that allows him to maintain a scary, badass vibe.
This PCS Collectibles take on the bad guy does an excellent job conveying everything I still feel for M. Bison. He’s massive, he’s powerful and he’s quite scary. The mixed media route they’ve chosen to go here with the fabric outfit is a great touch that I always love in larger scale statues like this. The light-up option on Bison’s hand and his eyes is also a nice addition that probably wasn’t necessary, but is extremely welcome.
Video game and pop culture fans are going to love this M. Bison statue and I can’t wait to get this massive baddie on my shelf.
The PCS Collectibles Street Fighter M. Bison 1:3 Scale Statue is available for pre-order now and is slated to release Q3, 2021.
