Though he will never back down from a fight, by the events of Street Fighter V, Ken is a married family man, and has traded in his trademark red gi for the first time in franchise history. Having learned humility and found inner peace, he is even ready to become the sensei and take on a disciple of his own. But for his premiere in the 1:4 Ultra Statue line, Pop Culture Shock Collectibles has chosen to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Ken Masters by putting him back in his trademark togs and offering limited edition variants of all his pre-SFV looks.
For the first time ever, we have the long-awaited Violent Ken. This exclusive cult favorite from Ultra Street Fighter II is a ruthless, cutthroat Ken Masters like we’ve never seen, brainwashed by M. Bison’s Psycho Power! With bleached hair, darker skin, and aggressive, violet eyes, this very limited piece also comes with a translucent purple Dragon Flame.
“Our Street Fighter V Ken in his new costume was an immediate sell out last year, and we wanted to revisit him again for his 30th birthday,” says Pop Culture Shock Founder Jerry Macaluso. “The problem is that his looks throughout the years were so popular we didn’t know which to choose. So, because they demanded it, we’re letting the fans choose whichever one they want.”
This is a preorder for an upcoming product.
