A couple of months ago, Julian Fong, aka levork, posted images of his custom LEGO Street Fighter minifigures on his Flickr account as well on LEGO CUUSOO. Unfortunately, LEGO quickly rejected the project due to the content not being appropriate for children, but now you can own these same minifigures as he is selling them. Julian has put the minifigures on eBay and all the proceeds will be going to the Child’s Play Charity. If you’ve wanted these Street Fighter minifigs, bid on them to help a great charity, which is a win-win situation. There is about 4 days 12 hours left on the listing as of this posting so please help out Julian and Child’s Play. Below is a brief description of the listing:
For sale is a full set of custom Street Fighter 2 Lego minifigs, entirely created by me. These are non-official, customized minifigs representing the entire cast of Capcom’s video game Super Street Fighter 2. That’s a grand total of seventeen minifigs: Ryu, Ken, Chun Li, Akuma, M. Bison, E. Honda, T. Hawk, Fei Long, Dee Jay, Guile, Blanka, Zangief, Vega, Balrog, Sagat, Dhalsim, and Cammy. Water-slide decals were designed and printed by me and applied to new Lego parts, then sealed with polyurethane for a durable finish. Custom hair elements were fashioned either from a combination of other Lego parts, and/or incorporate epoxy sculpts or paper elements. These figures are meant for display or very light play: the decals are fairly durable, but some of the epoxy sculpts are fragile (Dee Jay’s hair in particular, although that model is reinforced with wire armature).
