Street Fighter / Lucky Star figures cuter than puppies playing with kittens

As connoisseurs of all things cute, we have to give it up for these adorable Street Fighter / Lucky Star figurines, which are now available for preorder. If you’re not familiar with Lucky Star, it’s sort of like Japan’s answer to Penny Arcade.

The anime series started off as a four-panel manga that ran in the Japanese computer game magazine Comptiq. It’s one of those “slice of life” series that focuses on the daily dilemmas of its four main characters and is loaded with inside jokes and references for gamers, anime, and manga fans.

The figurines have been constructed with care by Good Smile Company. We love how the joints are movable, which will allow you to strike the perfect Street Fighter pose. The box set with all four figurines can be preordered for about 2,220 yen (about $25 or £17) at retailers, like Hobby Link JapanAmiAmi, and Hobby Search.

Above: Guile (played by Konata). We love this Sonic Boom pose

Above: Ryu (played by Kagami). We think this is more of a Ken-like pose. But the joints are adjustable, so you can give her a more serious stance

Above: Ken (played by Tsukasa). Shoryukens are what Kens do best!

Above: Viper (played by Miyuki). She looks ready to deliver some serious beat downs (extra smiles included)
