The memorable characters from Street Fighter II are greeting another cult icon of the 1980s, M.U.S.C.L.E. toys.
The first wave includes four three-packs of figures with Ryu, M. Bison, Vega, Ken, Dhalsim, Balrog, Blanka, Guile, Sagat, Chun-Li, Zangief and E. Honda.
These toys, which are available from Super7, aren’t the lone new M.U.S.C.L.E. creations available, either.
The aliens are going electronic on Wednesday.
