I went standard. I can't really afford that so be saving a few months.I also felt it has a better base.

Neither. Too much money and I don't really see the appeal in collecting figures. If I still owned/played Shenmue I would of jumped on it about 5 years ago..

Am I the only one that thinks it looks tacky as fuck? If Shenmue was a popular, well-known franchise this'd be the kinda shit you'd find at Blackpool n Skeg Ness. But yeah, I won't be buying. The only things that'd get my attention are perfect mirror replicas, or possibly a Ryo that looks like Ryo. Being officially licensed doesn't make it look any less like some cheap arse knock off that the ebay guy slapped a high price tag on to scam some sorry suckers.

I prefer the design of the Standard but I got the exclusive.

I wonder if we will see a flood of these on ebay when they come out ...

Personally I think this is a poor figure, what happened to Ryo's neck?

Personally with the horribly shit figures we got in the past with Shenhua and Ryo on the Forklift. I think this will be the best we ever get.

I think it's a good looking statue. There is something about his face that doesn't look quite like Ryo, but of the few figures and statues released this one blows away the others by a wide margin.

I feel the same way when looking at Ryo's face. At certain angles his face looks a bit off. Not a big fan of the fight posture, as he looks like a hunchback. I would prefer the actual fight posture he uses in the games, or even him just standing straight.

This is what the figure reminds me of.

Africa was the best Lynx, I got one of those cheap gift sets with it last Christmas and I wasn't even mad.

It's a nifty pong... when you're 14. Only betas wear Lynx in adulthood.
