Pop Culture Shock Collectibles has done its fair share of premium Street Fighter statues over the past couple of years. From their original Cammy statue, to their recent Juri piece, their statues have generally been some of the most amazing representations of Street Fighter characters ever cast. However, their latest statue seems to want to eclipse their previous work both in size and in price.

The recently announced 1:3 Chun-Li statue from Pop Culture Shock is both their largest and most expensive one yet. Set to release sometime next year, this statue comes in three distinct variants. The base “Classic Qipao” version featuring her original outfit costs a whopping $925. If that’s a bit too expensive, then there are the “Street Fighter Alpha” and “Battle Dress” variants that go for a slightly less wallet-wrecking $900.

The cost, of course, isn’t just because of the size–with each statue standing at 30″ (76 cm) tall–but also because of the amount of detail. The clothing on each statue is made from actual cloth and comes packed with little details, such as the embroidery on the white fabric on the waist of her qipao, or the ribbons on her hair.

These statues are set to be released in the fourth quarter of 2018. This should give prospective buyers enough time to save up (or sell some organs) before pre-orders for it open sometime in the near future. In the meantime: feel free to salivate over these images of the upcoming statues.
