Unless you’ve been living under an ancient temple for the last 30+ years, you’ve no doubt heard of Street Fighter. This legendary video game established many of the conventions in the one-on-one fighting genre that gamers take for granted today.
And while it is the highest-grossing media franchise of all time, a lot of the high-end collectibles associated with the property have been lacking. From cheap manufacturing resulting in broken limbs to bad paint jobs that don’t resemble the game characters, it was hard to find items that leveled up to the games themselves.
Who Is Squip Collectibles?
Squip is a newcomer to the fan-collector market, but they’ve quickly made a name for themselves creating incredible products. Instead of mass-producing items through a traditional factory creation and distribution process, they use high-resolution fabrication. That means each item is produced on-demand using company-approved computer models and premium detailing, then inspected and individually packaged before being shipped out.
Their attention to detail is so fine, they’ve already scored licenses with major brands, including Capcom’s Street Fighter and Mega Man games, as well as World of Warcraft, Resident Evil, and UFC.

(You won’t have Akuna or Cammy’s hair accidentally snapping off.)
