It only took a year and a half, but I'm done!
Well, other than Fei Long. But he's not that interesting. And I wanted an even 16 - to match the number in a collectible minifig set.
I've submitted this to CUUSOO just to see what happens. If Portal and Minecraft are popular, Street Fighter has got to get some votes.. stay tuned as I wait for them to publish it.
Update: apparently CUUSOO has to review submissions, so it'll take a
couple of days before you can vote. The link will be hopefully be this
lego.cuusoo.com/ideas/view/21824 . I'll make a note here when it actually goes live.
Update 2: CUUSOO rejected my submission. Here's their text:

End of their text.
While I respect their decision - we are talking about a fighting game, after all - I can't help but think LEGO's applying their own rules about licensed property inconsistently. The Lord of the Rings movies are incredibly violent and involve a lot of on-screen death. The only thing that comes close to restricting Street Fighter 2 is "blood", and that got toned out completely in the home ports - Nintendo was notoriously uptight about it in the SNES version.
I wonder what Lego will think if I try to submit a Mortal Kombat project, complete with fatalities? :D
