By now, you've probably stumbled upon the social media sensation that is the new Chun-Li statue from Premium Collectibles Studio. This eye-catching masterpiece has been making the rounds online, with images of Chun-Li mid-squat while weightlifting. It seems that people are thirsting for a taste of Chun-Li's power, but be warned, quenching that thirst comes at a price.
For those who are ready to add a weightlifting Chun-Li to their collection, pre-orders for this gem are already available. There are three designs to choose from, although only two of them seem to be live at Big Bad Toy Store at the moment. The classic version depicts Chun-Li in her most iconic attire—blue and white with those signature buns in her hair. If you want to make this statue your own, prepare to shell out a whopping $664.99.
These Premium Collectibles Chun-Li statues are official Street Fighter merchandise, created in collaboration with Capcom. Each statue showcases Chun-Li weightlifting, but they come with different attires, shakes, and weights, giving fans options to suit their tastes.
At Big Bad Toy Store, you can also find the alpha version of the statue, priced the same as the classic version but with a fresh look. In this edition, Chun-Li has ditched her usual battle attire in favor of a training outfit—a striking blue ensemble with yellow accents and ribbons adorning her hair. And that's not all! The third figure features Chun-Li in black, gold, and red, with her luscious hair flowing free. All three statues come with a shake placed next to Chun-Li on the platform, and the color of the shake and weights change depending on the version you choose.
There's no denying that there's a market for video game statues that cater to specific groups of gamers. In addition to the weightlifting Chun-Li, you can even find a statuette of Geralt in the bath. Yes, you read that right—Geralt of Rivia from The Witcher 3, chilling in his tub. This iconic gaming moment has been transformed into a collectible that you can proudly display on your shelf. And the best part? You could buy ten of these bathtub Geralt statues for the same price as a powerful Chun-Li. In defense of the Street Fighter statue, let's just say that Tub Geralt is far more compact.
So, my fellow collectors, if you're willing to part with your hard-earned cash for the chance to immortalize Chun-Li's strength and beauty, these statues are waiting for you. They'll bring a touch of pixelated perfection to your collection, and who knows, they might just inspire you to strengthen your own resolve. Just remember, when it comes to video game statues, it's not just about the aesthetics—it's also about the price tag that comes with them. But hey, who needs extra money in the bank when you can have a weightlifting Chun-Li gracing your home? Happy collecting!
