Found a random single Ken at Target today. No other case mates, if he had any. I did not get a chance to open and review him yet, but he seems pretty similar to Ryu. Maybe a little more consistent in quality. 

EDIT: opened the figure. No quality issues in my copy. The skin tone seems more evenly shaded and the hair seems less likely to have paint come off than the Ryu figure. I paid full price, and I am 100% satisfied with this purchase. No notes.

As everyone else has said, other companies could stand to learn from what Jada is doing. I’m anticipating this Street Fighter line is toyline of the year for 2024.

I also got a Ken yesterday.  First time I've seen any sign of SF restocks in my area of CT since before Christmas.

This was the same for me, today I found one Ken in Target where the collectibles are shelved. I decided to go ahead and cancel my BBTS pre-order.

🍻 to everyone finding Ken. After months, weeks of looking for him, finally found one too!

Is the belt on Ken sculpted in black, or is it white and then painted like Ryu's belt?

M. Bison and Dhalsim up for pre order on Amazon.

Really like the look of Bison.

We're they actually available and (temporarily) sold out?  Or are these just placeholders?

I have a Pile of Loot which is approaching ready to ship status (c'mon NECA Elkhorn...arrive!).  I have a Ken on preorder which I assume will be fulfilled at some point, but I'm not holding up my Pile for him.

Dhalsim is not there at all,  though I found M. Bison.    Don't care about the big red guy... just want my stretchy mystic fighting guru.

I've not seen Ken available at normal price from Amazon yet either and been checking daily.

Did they actually go live on Amazon at all?  BBTS and EE haven’t put any preorders up for them either.

I found a purchase-now listing on Amazon UK for Dhalsim that says “ships in 3-7 months”… I think I’ll wait a little while and try to nab all three of wave 2 when there are reliable “in stock” listings though

Got a link for that Dhalsim? I can see a ‘currently unavailable’ but nothing I could order.

I did put an order in for Bison yesterday that’s months off, as I suspect this series is going to be hard to find in the UK. I regret missing all the £22 listings on Star Action Figures.

@rob-w 

The listing was there when I did a general search for Jade Street Fighter but I just tried it again and couldn’t find it, I’m suspecting somebody tried to purchase it and they flagged it as an erroneous placeholder that shouldn’t have gone live so suppressed it again. I had a similar thing happen when they had ML Retro card Kingpin go to “in stock” once, I purchased and got charged and then it went to limbo for months because it was a mistake and I had to cancel and get a refund because the stock didn’t exist, I’m assuming this happens more than we realise as they organise listings.

But seeing that all of wave 1 is in stock at 24.99 makes me think wave 2 will be available eventually and not so hard to get, just a bit behind on when US retail have it.

I had a pretty complete set of the Sota figures back in the day, and regret selling it all but the engineering on these Jada figures really fixes a lot of the problems that line had in the ugly feet joints and broken hip balls, as well as adding in new better butterfly shoulders and ball jointed torsos so it’s great to be starting collecting these characters again.

@kailryu Yeah, I bought most of the SOTAs (though never Ken, so be good to fix that) and never felt like replacing them in the interim, but these are too good to pass up.

I now need to sell the old guard on - kinda regretting not doing so a while back, as I bet the bottom has dropped out of the market.
