I went camping! And I took my giant Street Fighter Blanka action figure. I thought his monstrous looks would make sense out in the woods. It exceeded my expectations. He may be the most photogenic toy I’ve worked with. Here’s the pics!
Blanka doesn’t really need a giant knife, but he can hold one if need be.
Look at this happy camper!
I was trying to pose him in a way that made it seem like he was a wild animal and this was his natural surroundings. This is probably as close as I could get. He’s actually from the South American jungles, so he would blend in way better there.
If you’re wondering, yes, his pants are always undone. It’s a cool Blanka thing, you probably wouldn’t understand.
Blanka’s a little wild as he’s demonstrating here with his erotic pole dancing.
He also looks great with cars, specifically orange Elements. If you have an orange Element, you must get a Blanka doll.
Shot from behind. Not everyone knows, but Blanka has a tramp stamp! I love the way the sun is catching his hair, here. If you look closely, you can see a gaffe–the photographer’s reflection is in the mirror!
Later that day, it was time to hit the beach!
It was literally 106 degrees that day, so the water calmed his beastly spirit.
His hair always looks amazing, but especially after it’s gotten wet.
Then a little “drinkie-poo.”
Being buried in the sand is something all Street Fighters enjoy.
As well as relaxing on a floaty.
You know what makes ya hungry? Swimmin!
Time to get dolled up…
And head to the BIG LUAU!
You might be surprised to learn, but Blanka is really good with kids!
He’s also a great lookout, due to his jungle tree climbing skills.
One thing he’s not good at is controlling his alcoholism. He has a drinking problem. Here’s his friend Russell “The Man Muscle” enabling him.
It’s not easy being a monster due to scientific experimentation by a shadowy overlord. It does things to a fella…
People, and monsters, with emotional problems, often turn to food and liquor…
Then the night comes and….LOOK OUT!
NIGHTTIME PARTY BLANKA!!!
MUST RAGE! CAN NOT BE IN CAGE!
BUT CAN GET DRUNK AND GO ON STAGE!
OR GET BLASTED AND TALK TO THE TIKI SAGE!
THEN CALM DOWN AN TALK TO PRETTY GIRL, IF SHE IS RIGHT AGE.
Then the next day, you wake up and act like nothing weird happened.
And that’s “Camping With Blanka.”
