Hi everyone..This is a for a friend who the majority of the time ask me to do him custom figures of rare characters.Who remember in the early 90's when one day you purchased EGM magazine and read the famous article & the April fools joke that rocked the video game world of Street Fighter Sheng Long? As stated in the article,in order to fight him.One had to reach Bison without taking a single hit in the game.A ridiculous feat that many in the arcades tried and failed.lol. Well here what I did to put this famous fake Street Fighter character together.I used Sota preview akuma torso & head,combined it with Neca Akuma arms & legs.Used SNK Akuma Gi.I then sand down akuma hair & sculpted a bandana, fine hair & a little male pattern baldness with a pony tail,goa-tee,bushy eyebrows & left eye scar.Next sculpted hand guards and painted hair and outfit to look old & worn out faded.Finally he was done. For over 20 years,the name Sheng Long still ring a bell for many street fighter fans.I dont think it will ever leave ours minds. Hope you like
thanks for watching

Vic Veins

Hahaha I remember that article, glad you posted a picture, that's great! He looks awesome! I'm always impressed by your pictures! I think I need to spruce mine up but it's hard when I am trying to keep my five year old from playing with the figures!!!!

I can imagine how difficult it could be.I sometimes have trouble just holding a pose on these figures.You can see it this way,maybe your 5 yr old inherited it dad craft talents. thanks Supa
