Yay! Originally, Medicom released two Kubrick figures featuring Morrigan from Darkstalkers and Chun Li from Street Fighter. As with all Medicom merchandise, these items were a limited release and difficult to obtain. Everything's possible with eBay, as long as you're willing to pay inflated prices of course.
Now, thankfully, you can purchase a variety of Capcom characters from a new Minimates line, slated for release in January 2006. Can't wait! I have already pre-ordered mine via Previews and Diamond Select at my local comic book shop. I suggest you do the same because solid support will ensure a Series 2 and possibly Series 3 - think of all the adorable Capcom characters they could release! Personally, I'd love to see more Darkstalkers fighters, but Devilot from Cyberbots or Strider would make nice Minimates as well.
The Series 1 set consists of 7 molds: Ryu, Akuma, Demitri, Morrigan, Lilith, Chun Li and Bison. With several color variants, which include a repainted Lilith, Chun Li, Bison, Ryu and Akuma. Of course, nothing is set in stone, considering there are several months between now and the release date. Anything's possible. But I'm excited just the same.
