Late, but I wouldn't overthink the inclusion of a red fireball with Ken. Ultimately it's just a "well, we included blue with Ryu, let's put the red with Ken just to have the variant out there for those who care". I absolutely would have preferred a shoryuken, but I'm sure we'll get those Eventually™

Have many of you gotten your Evil Ryu figures yet?  I first saw reviews on them a few months ago and thought they'd be rolling out back then, but still no word on mine.

Yes, had mine a few weeks now.

I've still never seen a single one of these at Target. Ordered a Ryu because I was getting a bit concerned about not finding him, but am still holding out to find the others in stores.

That's a rough looking knockoff. Seems like a weird line to try and undercut with cheap copies.

Yeah especially when these are already so cheap and easily available.  Make some Storm Collectable knockoffs and I'd be interested.

In the comments, 5Ktoys said the KOs are 40CNY (about $5.50 USD).  I guess he was implying this was an inexpensive option in Asia where Jada is more expensive.

Got my Chun-Li a little while ago and forgot to post about her.

She's such a great figure and I love the expressions on both heads, especially the yelling one!

The articulation is just fantastic and leaves me so excited for the rest of this line.

I got that email too.  Sucks, Ken's my favorite character so I was really excited to get him in hand.. even though I know he'll pose pretty much the same as Ryu.

Oh boy, there was one more Ryu and Fei in the collector's section without clearance tags.  I bought one Fei and left the rest.  I now have Ryu x3, Fei x3, and Chun Li x4.

Yeah, Jada Toys are easily available in the US but they're not being sold to China and other east asian countries, at least to my knowledge. It makes sense that there's knockoffs, especially for a property so big in China.

I'd definitely buy a few more if they were being clearanced out near me. What are they being marked down to?

@red_ogre They were $12.50.  I was tempted to pick up more and was standing there trying to come up with a good reason to do so.  I decided not to since I already have boxed extras and I couldn't think of good reuse for customs.  Also, $12.50 is a great find in store, but adding sales tax and shipping would cut into any significant savings if I were to buy them for others.  Probably only a few bucks cheaper than Amazon.  I suppose they could be good figures to buy cheap and hold onto for later when supply dries up.
