Ken and Ryu face off in stop motion

Evo 2011 is finally over, but that doesn’t mean that Ken and Ryu are done fighting. To the contrary, the duo can be found going head-to-head in Counter656’s newest stop-motion video. Not only have these two toys been painstakingly posed for an entire three-round fight, they’ve gone ahead and added some stellar special effects in what amounts to a solid month of work.

The battle gets as heated as you’d expect and, for the most part, sticks fairly close to Street Fighter‘s actual fight styles; it’s an impressive undertaking. The group has also covered Mega Man, Final Fantasty VII, Toy Story, Gundam, and Transformers and, while not as well done as this one, they’re all pretty great.
