Japanese pop culture icons as Street Fighter IV cast

I love this collection of Japanese pop culture icons as Street Fighter IV characters. Artist Kei Suwabe did a killer job in nailing Capcom's style for these portraits, and you can see them all in one collection over at The Errant Cluster, and a few more can be found on the artist's series page. I'm with them -- I'd play the sh*t out of this game.

You may not recognize all of the people in the individual portraits, but there's plenty you'll be able to pick out from games, television and the product mascot world. I'd kill to see a match between the Michelin Man and Bob Ross. Who is with me on the feeling that Waldo and the Boss Coffee guy would make a great team. If you know your Japanese sh*t, you probably laughed as hard as I did at Pon de Lion. As I write this blog post I am still bubbling with laughter over Colonel Sanders' pose. Fantastic stuff.
