Jada is pretty sparse with the news. I could have sworn they said by early 2023 we'd know who'd be in wave 2 and 3. So far we haven't even seen official finals of Chun Li and wave 2 is still early prototypes. I feel the team is running into a lot of challenging trying to get these out the way they want. I really hope pre-orders for Ryu and Fei Long have been good.

It has been mentioned that wave 3 will be announced over the summer, I believe they talked about SDCC specifically.

Any news on the third wave line up or are we still guessing? Hoping to see Sagat, Cammy, and Blanka next. Gotta save Guile to headline that fourth wave.
Juhn confirmed that SDCC will have all three waves, including 1 or maybe even 2 "one-offs".

That's still quiet a long wait. I think in his last video he said there would be an exclusive out by then, that it was something really cool.

I think Jada is falling into the weird limbo that basically every company is right now with new reveals. Normally New York Toy Fair has come and passed and companies have shown typically what their next 6 months of offerings are. Even during pandemic years with no NYTF, every company had their own stream for reveals. Now with no NYTF until the end of the year this year, almost no company outside of Hasbro/Mattel/Boss Fight Studios have done major reveals for their upcoming figures. If everyone is waiting until SDCC/NYTF, I can't see the first half of 2023 having many reveals from any company. The back half of 2023 and early 2024 will also get flooded with too much product from everyone.

Oof. SDCC does sound a ways away. I was hoping series one would one out a month or two sooner.

I'm thinking for wave three it would be good to show the fan base that they are still on track to do all the original SFII guys. With this in mind I would say they would get big props for being the first company to do Dee Jay, I would throw Cammy in as well and I think you need one of the big boys for the third slot to show that they are willing to do different body types so I imagine fans choice would be E Honda or Blanka.

If we want to play fourth round I like your Guile idea and think maybe Sagat would be good as a big boy and a bad guy then maybe have Vega as a middle of the road guy that nobody is hanging out for but we all want him to be done

I'm on a roll now so as we only have 6 characters left Blanka (guess i ended up using honda in wave two), Balrog(yawn), Dhalsim, T-Hawk, M Bison and Zangief. Of this lot 4 are big boys, so two in each wave, two are bad guys, so split them up. So wave 5 Balrog, Zangief and T-Hawk. This would be the most boring wave but if you have stuck around for four waves your probably sticking this out to the bitter end. Leaving Bison, Blanka and Dhalsim for our big finish.

Now you can see how wrong I am and why i'm not a product manager.

Bison and Dhalsim are wave 2 already

I think Guile and Cammy need to anchor at least 2 waves. I can see Violent Ken and Evil Ryu being fillers for future wave or in a wave where they release a big boy like Gief, T.Hawk, or Honda. Or the mid bigs like Balrog and Blanka.

Ok after sitting down with a piece of paper and scratching the old noggin a bit, Firstly it turns out 16 cant be evenly divided by 3 (who knew) so thats why in my plan a couple of fellows were getting two outings so anyway grab your credit cards because my crystal brain tells me this is the line up 100%

Wave 1 Ryu, Fei Long, Chun Li

Wave 2 Ken, Bison, Dhalsim

Wave 3 Dee-Jay, Cammy, E-Honda

Wave 4 Guile, Vega, Sagat

Wave 5 Blanka, T-Hawk, Balrog

Wave 6 Zangief, Akuma (I think he was in the first couple of SFii's), and cause its the internet I guess the third figure is your mum!

On the topic of character waves and SDCC I'm just going to quote myself here:
S.W.O.R.D. Agent wrote:

We're super slow at work, so I was thinking about this line and the 18 month timeline Juhn mentioned. At first it hit me as mildly unrealistic to complete this line in that timeframe, but after breaking it down visually (I'm a visual person), I think it's fairly doable.

Image

If you take out oversized / deluxe characters you're really only left with 5 characters to fill out the last two waves.

Maybe Blanka, Sagat, or Balrog fight into that last free spot. After that it's just one off releases and alternate costumes. I threw Dan in there as he's easy reuse, but ultimately it's 4 waves and 5 deluxe releases.

And guessing a $35 price point for the deluxe guys that would get you a full SFII collection for about $500.

A stage or two, some barrels, and a car to beat up would be icing on the cake.


To add to this, all 9 figures will be shown at SDCC 2023, but Juhn also said that there would be more shown that are releases outside of the waves of three. Also mentioned that accessory packs are a possibility, but we could see alt heads, hands, and effects included as P2 releases. Nothing confirmed. Also, larger figures will be a higher price point, but appropriately sized.

Just spitballing, but I'm guessing it's the extra shown at SDCC is some sort of stage dio / backdrop. Alternatively, some sort of crossover figures amongst the Capcom licenses. Stryder Ryu, Captain Commando, or MvC Megaman or Zero.

Also, one thing I hadn't considered is that the SFII roster has repeatedly been mentioned as a 16 character roster, but that does not include Akuma or the Evil variants. Both those were mentioned in the stream and acknowledged that it would be cool to get, but the focus on the 16 character roster might mean we don't see him as soon as we could (or I would expect based on parts resuse and popularity).

Some figures will be deluxe releases though, and I'd wager Zangief, T-Hawk, and E. Honda are almost absolutely deluxe releases. And Juhn has stated that every wave would be two anchors and a wild card.

I'd move Vega up to wave 3, for a second anchor and because him and Cammy would be a fun pairing for a wave. If they're in waves, Violent Ken will be in wave 4 and Evil Ken in wave 5. Akuma stays in wave 6 as a lead-in to SF Alpha, which the rest of his wave would be focused on.

Some MVC one-offs would rule.

I can definitely see a shoto filling each wave to cut down cost. So with 3 left, it can be expected that there would be a total of 5 waves. With wave 3 bigs sandwiched between the 5.

Ryu, Chun Li, Fei Long
Ken, Bison, Dhalsim
Zangief

Sagat, Evil Ryu, Deejay
Cammy, Violent Ken, Vega
T.Hawk

Guile, Blanka, Akuma
E.Honda

In between I imagine there will be P2 repaints and exclusives like a disco Bison or glow in the dark Blanka or something

Because everyone else is sharing their predictions and mine got buried back on page 18 before my account got approved:

This is my prediction for the releases (not counting 2P variant waves which will most likely be sprinkled in between if not released simultaneously with 1P like SOTA did)
Keep in mind, Ultra Street Fighter 2's roster is actually 20 as opposed to SSF2T's 17 if you include Evil Ryu, Violent Ken, and the secret character Shin Akuma (purple gi)

Series 1
(Confirmed; 2 World Warriors + 1 New Challenger)

Ryu
Chun Li
Fei Long

Series 2
(Confirmed; 2 World Warriors + 1 Boss)

Ken
M. Bison
Dhalsim

Series 3
(Prediction; 2 World Warriors + 1 New Challenger)

Guile
Blanka
Dee Jay

Series 4
(Prediction; remainder of non-deluxe SSF2 roster)

Cammy
Sagat
Balrog

Series 5
(Prediction; remainder of SSF2T & base USF2 roster)

Akuma
Evil Ryu
Violent Ken

Deluxe figures
(Predictions; waves of two or individual releases)

Zangief
E. Honda
(Somewhere between wave 2 and 3 to finish the World Warriors)

Vega
T. Hawk
(Somewhere between wave 4 and 5 to finish the bosses and New Challengers)

Exclusive (Assuming he is acknowledged)

Shin Akuma
(To officially complete USF2's roster and as a sort of commemorative piece to celebrate the line's official completion; would love for this to have translucent hair and eyes like Resaurus Akuma!)

REALLY hope we don't get that version of Cammy's costume for the first one, but I like this rollout if it happens that way.
