I'm more of a 'Street fighter' guy and by the time 'King of Fighters' released, I'm moving away from arcade gaming. Still, It's hard not to noticed the excellent character designs of this video game franchise. I added these pair of KOF loose 7" figures into my collection when I saw them selling at flea-market. Let's focus on Kyo Kusanagi first, he is the main protagonist in SNK's The King of Fighters video game series. He is inclined to using flame attacks and nicknamed 'Scion of the Flame'.
Kyo Kusanagi action figure by High Dream's is a limited release for Capcom vs SNK 2 series! I understand there are other more detailed figures of Kyo these days such as 'Storm Collectibles' but I have to give credits to the sculpt of this figure as it's more that decent based on the date of its released. Beside this action is within my budget and won't burn my wallet : )
Kyo comes in his trademark High School Gakuran uniform, unfortunately the print on the rear of the jacket is fading. The surface of the figure is also starting to get sticky. This figure features a 20-point-articulation and IMHO the signature pose which fire engulfed in his hand, looks the coolest. Not to mention the awesome flame accessory attached to his hand. Overall, the figure is very photographic and goes well with Bandai's flame effect parts. I did some photo editing to enhance the pics and I hope the figure is more pleasing to the eyes.
