Beyond being the first professional wrestler in the Street Fighter franchise, the most important thing you need to know about Zangief is that the scars that mark his body came courtesy of the 10’ Siberian black grizzlies he trains against in the Russian wilderness.
Yes, Zangief wrestles bears. For practice.
The second most important thing you need to know about Zangief is that he has no respect for their fighting style. Those bears should feel shame.
Zangief is Hero. Zangief is Number One.
Arguably the brawniest character in the tournament, the Red Cyclone has been a fan favorite since his debut in 1991. While the other World Warriors fought for money, revenge or world domination, the Cossack champ used his body of steel to fight for his country and “the great power and dedication of muscle.” As far as Zangief is concerned, not even M. Bison’s Psycho Power is a threat to his Muscle Power.
“The beard, the mohawk, the muttonchops; it all pulls together into a package telling you that despite his imposing size, at heart he’s a big lovable lug with a great sense of humor. And it’s true, the way he taunts his opponents, mocking their lack of strength and muscle tone, has literally made me laugh out loud. It’s just impossible not to love Zangief. He’s the agitprop Hans and Franz.” - Jerry Macaluso, Founder of Pop Culture Shock.
Using the actual Street Fighter V 3D model for absolute accuracy, this high-quality collectible is a flawless specimen of polystone manliness, from trapezius to gastrocnemius. Our Pop Culture Shock comrades have demonstrated the power of their technique by rendering each perfectly-pumped muscle with the respect it deserves, greatly honoring their dignity. Measuring 27″ tall and 18″ wide, the result is both mighty and magnificent.
The result is Zangief.
