Street Fighter x Kidrobot

I've always been fond of Kidrobot and their toy lines, but never really made it my priority to purchase any of them. Call me a non risk taker or even a cheap skate, but I never found it my style to spend money on blind box vinyl figures. Not that I haven't ever done it, it was just never my thing - though I love the element of surprise. However, I lived vicariously through my friends for my Kidrobot fix, but have recently taken a deeper interest in them again. I'm not going to purchase a blind box every single day, but I do enjoy the art and the special series that Kidrobot has for their team-ups, like the Street Fighter collection. I went out on a whim and went to Kidrobot after work, having purchased 3 Street Fighter blind boxes (all of which I got unique figures - whew), and just so happen to be the uncommon ones. Since I was never really a Guile fan (couldn't do a sonic boom when I was a kid), he was put in the back. I find myself having a deeper appreciation for vinyl figures, more so than I ever had before. I guess working in the art industry does that to you. Kidrobot definitely capitalized on something here, and more power to them, just don't charge so much for blind box Dunnys. ^^;;
