We’re back and we finally have a Funko Friday post just for you!!! Here is my third and final article on my Street Fighter Funko Pop collection featuring none other than the blonde bombshell himself Ken. He finally joins his pals Ryu and Chun-Li in my ever growing Funko collection. The Street Fighter Funko pop series has grown incredibly since the last article, with many being exclusives to the line. I’v also added one or two more to my collection but since I’m slightly behind with my Funko photo-taking you might not see them for a while.
Street Fighter Ken
Ken Masters is one of the main characters from the Street Fighter series of fighting games alongside with Ryu, having made appearances in all major incarnations of the main series. He has also appeared in various instalments of the Versus series.
In terms of appearance Ken concept is loosely based on American, martial artist Joe Lewis. He is most easily recognized by his sparring gloves (yellow in the Alpha Series, red or brown elsewhere) and bright red karate gi with the arms ripped off, similar to Ryu’s (Capcom has said that a red gi was chosen to stand out and to reflect his more flashy style of fighting). He has long blonde hair which many claim to be dyed since his eyebrows are brown.
In terms of personality while Ryu is the serious, nice and stoic of the two, Ken is the complete opposite. He is flashy, unorthodox, and unpredictable. He can also be very egotistical and short tempered at times. But he is actually a good person who tries to help people with problems and very easy going. He never backs down from a fight no matter how difficult it is (unless you lose of course). His appearance makes him appear to be the flashier one out of the two.
Funko Pop Ken
He had difficulty standing up. I found him quite wobbly so I had to be very careful when taking photos of him, especially with the other two next to him. The colours of his eyes are so vibrant and slightly distracting while his hair has this really weird green tint to it, but maybe that’s my eyesight playing tricks on me. He’s not my favourite out of all three but he does complete the collection. My first completed collection!! Which Funko’s are your favourite from the Street Fighter series.
