I'm digging it. Just incredibly curious on what they're going to pack her with in regards to effect pieces. Given the Storm prices and her size, I would hope they just jam-pack it with accessories. And more than most, she needs to come with a flight stand seeing as how one of her most iconic attributes is being hoisted up by the eagle.

She looks good, but her face is a little weird, too much anime like. She doesn't even have nostrils. That's not how she looks like in the game.

Haohmaru's face was done way better.

This one rrrrrrrrrrrrrreally needed to come in at a slightly lower price point. Like $80 MSRP. I get that it comes with, you know, a bird and all, but a single thin slash effect and no flight stand? And it's $5 more than Haohmaru?

Much as I love Storm, the bang for the buck is steadily dwindling with only rare offerings like the skeletons bucking that trend.

I liked everything until I saw her crotch area. She will look awful in any pose that's not standing straight IMO.

Love the way this figure looks, but for $95 it’s an incredibly hard pass.*

She cost half a NECA Goliath more than Storm’s Kung Lao! Kung Lao would need to also include giant wings, a tail, and a jalapeña pepper to cost as much as little Nakaruru

She’s $15 less than Motaro and doesn’t include a poseable skeleton, so I assume this means her base figure cost as much as Motaro’s?!

If this is an across the board price hike, I’m going to be scaling my Storm purchases waaaaaaaay back (to *just* KoF, MK, and Darkstalkers.)

*hard pass unless she end up in BlueFin sale, for a better price this is a great figure

Sadly, despite the price I’m still in since this is a franchise that never gets figures and I doubt we will see another Nakoruru again in the next decade. Storm really got me here.

For anyone looking for Hoamaru, Amazon warehouse has a few for about 70 bucks. I just ordered one and should be here Monday.

Haohmaru down to $50-something on amazon right now for Prime Days. This is pretty much the bottom floor price, if you ever wanted it but were gun shy on the MSRP.
