Jerry Macaluso describes the piece as
The greatest challenge with Chun Li is capturing this amazing balance of strength and femininity that Capcom’s designers have given her since the beginning. As Street Fighter fans know, she is the ‘Strongest Woman in the World,’ which means she needs muscle, yet she also has to be, well…hot! So the sculpture itself went through many revisions over 12 months of development while I tried to find that perfect balance.’
We began with Chun Li’s most recognizable look, Classic Qipao, which is the blue outfit she’s worn since Street Fighter II,” continues Macaluso. “Re-creating that dress was no small feat, but we are lucky to have some of the most talented costumers in the business working with us for months, and it really shows in the amazing details on this piece, such as the embroidery.
Pre-orders for the Chun Li statue open on Monday, 29th May 2017 at 3pm Pacific.
