Charlie or Nash is one of my favourite ‘Street Fighter’ characters although I’m not exactly good using him as a player in ‘Street Fighter Alpha’. The reason I love playing prequel like ‘Street Fighter Alpha’ very much contribute to Charlie and Dan being playable characters. Charlie's moves are similar to Guile.
I got this figure from Ebay that arrived in blistered card and ripped off rear paperboard. But who cares about the card when I’m interested only interested in the figurine. However, the big disappointment came when I noticed the figurine having 2 right feet. It’s awful and couldn’t even stand on its own. I don’t think it’s fair to blame the seller so I presumed it’s bad QC by the manufacturer ‘Jazwares’. Anyway, I didn’t make a big fuss and didn’t give up on the toy either. I applied my Gunpla skill by carefully trimming the error foot and had used plastic putty to mold out the left foot. It took me two days to savage this toy. It’s never perfect but I still treasure it. At the end of the day, I still rated the seller positive and full stars rating.
This Charlie figurine by ‘Jazwares’ released in 2005 is a repackaged toy of what was previously released by ‘ReSaurus’. ReSaurus did a better job using better quality plastic and comes with a mini dog-tag for Charlie. As for mine, I managed to get a dog-tag for my Charlie with the help of Desmond 'Thanx a lot bro'. The colour scheme was more accurate to the game. Unfortunately, ‘ReSaurus’ version of Charlie was limited.
Going back to ‘Jazwares’, in my opinion, their quality could not match up to ‘Sota’ and ‘ReSaurus’. Articulation is serious lacking without joint on elbow, wrist and ankle. What I had received, explained all, still this figurine of Charlie is one that’s not so easy to obtain and it took me a while to get it so having it is still comforting.
Not to dwell onto further flaws, I still think the figurine is still pretty all right due to the nice head sculpt and well toned body of Charlie. There’s a slit at the back of the jacket so you could actually removed it for a bare-bodied Charile.
