Zangief Figure (repost)

The second capsule ball toy I picked up is Zangief, from the Street Fighter video game. Zangief is featured fairly heavily in the High Score Girl manga, and I wanted to get one of this series to go along with the manga (for whenever the next volume comes out).

The flier says there are 8 figures in the series, but there are only 4 poses pictured above. 200 yen ($1.80 USD) each. I got the pile driver one. He's kind of big, at about 2" high in his sitting pose. The close-up photo brings out the imperfections in the molding process more, but he really doesn't look that bad normally.

He is a hairy guy. These are part of the desktop accessories style, so you can use them for holding rubber bands, MP3 player earbuds, or business cards.

Best suited for that pencil pusher in your life.
