Lucky Star Street Fighter Nendroid Petit
Konata, the star of the manga and anime series Lucky Star, is a huge video game fan so a Lucky Star/Street Fighter collaboration isn’t that surprising. It is, of course, absolutely adorable. The Good Smile Company is going to create a set of Nendroid Petit Lucky Star figurines dressed as Street Fighter characters in August, 2010.

The Nendroid Petit Lucky Star x Street Fighter set comes with four Nendroid Petit figurines of the four main characters of the Lucky Star series dressed as famous Street Fighter characters. Konata is Guile, Miyuki is C. Viper and the Hiiragi twins Kagami and Tsukasa are dressed as Ryu and Ken. Each figurine is between two and three inches tall and arrive as shown in the picture above.

Both Hobby Search and JBox are taking set preorders. I’d recommend ordering through Hobby Search, as that site is charging only ¥2,266 ($24). JBox is charging $38.

As The Banzai! Effect points out, this isn’t the first Lucky Star and Street Fighter cross-over. In the animated series, Konata had an interesting encounter with a Guile look-alike. Check the video below and see for yourself.

In case you’ve never heard of Lucky Star, it’s a slice of life series that’s quite popular around the world. (It’s sort of similar to Azumanga Daioh. It revolves around the adventures of otaku Konata and her friends Kagami, Tsukasa and Miyuki. Bandai’s publishing both the manga and anime series in North America.
