Kaiyodo is going to release the Revoltech SFO Zangief ( ザンギエフ ) action figure (produced by GSC) from the online PC game “Street Fighter Online: Mouse Generation” ( ストリートファイターオンライン マウスジェネレーション ). Will be released in December 2008. Around 105mm tall, 1,680 yen.

You can per-order him here

Oh why it has to be Zangief? Why not Ken or Guile? Oh well, that means the month after gonna be Ken or Guile since it has to be “1 popular character + 1 garbage character”. If you go check out the SFO site, you will see that they have 2 new characters!!! And if you scroll down a bit, you will see Dan!!! Wow! I love Dan. Let’s hope that Kaiyodo will make a SFO Dan too. =D

As for this Zangief, um… the body looks great but his face looks funing… And how come he is so short? Only 105mm tall? Same as Ryo? What the heck. He should be so much taller than that!! =(
