Hobby Link Japan had this free shipping dealy going on a couple weeks ago, and I took advantage of it to pick up Cammy. This version of Cammy comes from the Street Fighter Zero/Alpha games, as does my other Cammy. I like her Delta Red costume more, and it’s a bit curious that figure manufacturers seem to prefer depicting her in her Shadaloo uniform.
Cammy comes in 1/6 scale from Yamato. The original sculpt comes from REFLECT, which I assume is an alias for Mitsumasa Yoshizawa. He’s collaborated extensively with Yamato, primarily on Shunya Yamashita-inspired figures. It appears he also sculpted the other Cammy figure I own, although that one was manufactured by Kaiyodo.
Cammy is posed in a straightforward manner, standing at attention with her hand raised in a salute. Workmanship is pretty solid; the sculpt looks good and the paint is fine. In particular, there’s a nice wash effect which highlights the ribbing on her uniform, which is a nice touch. Her backside is a bit flatter than I like, which is a shame but not a surprise.
The base is a very small circle labelled with her name. It gives her a very small form factor, which I appreciate since I’m running desperately short on shelf space.
The art style in Street Fighter has varied over the years; Street Fighter IV features relatively realistic (albeit heavily-muscled) character designs, while the designs in the Street Fighter Zero games were more strongly influenced by anime. Obviously, this Cammy evinces a realistic styling.
Her face is expressionless, which is understandable given her status as an amnesiac Shadaloo assassin. Her pinpoint pupils give her stare a disturbingly vacant look, particularly in dark lighting.
I’ll admit it’s not easy to say a lot about this figure. I like it, but there’s not much that stands out. Cammy fans will probably be interested, but I don’t think there’s much here that will appeal to people who aren’t Street Fighter fans.
