Playmates Toys - CHUN-LI!

TMNT vs Street Fighter - Michelangelo & Chun-Li 2-Pack - Playmates Toys 2022

Playmates Toys has really been upping their game in the the last five years. Shortly before then, the Star Trek and TMNT movie toys left a lot to be desired. The likenesses were off, the articulation was stiff, and the overall appeal was a bit lackluster. But since then there have been several really great toy lines with impressive articulation and design. The Mysticons and Miraculous Playmates lines in particular have brought me much joy. But now they've improved even further with their recent two-pack assortments. I'm especially impressed with this Chun-Li figure from the TMNT vs Street Fighter series. Firstly, I feel like it's been a while since I've seen a Chun-Li figure at retail, and secondly, her sculpt and articulation are perfect. (And the new Star Trek figures are impressive as well so I know it's not a fluke). The only improvements I can suggest for this figure would be a ribcage cut and alternate hands. I'm excited to see what surprise properties they'll unveil next.  Let's check out Chun-Li below!

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here is Chun-Li with her pack-mate, Michelangelo. 
He has a pretty extreme deco meant to represent a pixelated video game.

Someone specifically asked me how she compares to Marvel Legends figures. 
So here she is with the recent Madame Hydra and Quake.
