Virtua Fighter 5: Ultimate Showdown Akira Yuki Storm Collectibles Figure Pre-orders Open


Back in October 2021, Storm Collectibles first announced the addition of Virtua Fighter to their action figure line which already includes a long list of fan-favorite characters from the likes of TEKKEN, Mortal Kombat, Street Fighter, and SNK fighting games. Akira Yuki is the first Virtua Fighter character figure announced by Storm Collectibles and the Bajiquan master is now officially available for pre-order (link below)! Based on his latest appearance in Virtua Fighter 5: Ultimate Showdown, Storm's high-articulating Akira figure features 3 interchanging head sculpts, 5 pairs of hands, 1 punching effect accessory and is priced at $87.00 + shipping. Storm Collectibles will begin shipping the figure in Q3 2022.



AKIRA YUKI - VIRTUA FIGHTER 5: Ultimate Showdown 

After losing to Kage-Maru in the Fourth World Fighting Tournament, Akira returned to the mountains to train harder than ever before. He began to doubt his previous training and could not understand how he had been defeated. One day he caught sight of a leaf floating downstream and he held his breath as it spun easily around a boulder, avoiding it neatly, and continuing on in the flow. He suddenly understood that he had been resisting the flow and he resumed his training with renewed confidence. Soon after, he decided to join the Fifth World Fighting Tournament.


  • 3 x Interchanging Head Sculpt  

  • 5 x Pair of Hands 

  • 1 x Punching Effect


Once again, Storm Collectibles' Akira Figure retails for $87.00 USD and will begin shipping in Q3 2022. You can pre-order Akira Yuki over at Stormco.com.
