Has this company released anything before? Do they have a decent track record? I could go for a nice 1/6 scale Ryu and Ken.
No, they haven't released anything, they revealed a Patrick Bateman a few months ago.
I came across this on Instagram, apparently it was announced 2 weeks ago. Never heard of Iconiq Studios before, so it could be another Molecule 8 situation. It's going to be fully licensed and comes with two headsculpts. Thoughts?
I'm not sure who's all responsible for what, but if the base body is a TBLeague that should be pretty reliable, as they are about the only seamless body that doesn't have breakage issues. They've been consistently releasing figures over past year or so. There was some drama about a split between them and Phicen, but it seems like TBLeague were the actual ones behind the bodies and Phicen was just a brand name, as Phicen seem to have dropped off the face of the earth.
The promo pic shows the logo for Eleven, which I think are responsible for production, overseeing the work in the factory, and I assume Iconiq are simply 'creative director' on this project, i.e. coordinating the efforts of parties involved.
The only worry is that the paint on one of the Bateman heads looked rough, but the bloody head looked great. It seems like the pieces are in place for a good figure, but Street Fighter is pretty cursed, so time will tell ...
