As far as video game historical artifacts go, this one has to be one of the most stately I’ve ever seen – a true trophy statue of Ryu, case in solid bronze. The story behind it is interesting – it’s one of two ever made (a third on a larger scale was made for a different purpose) and served three years in a row as a trophy for Street Fighter III “press tournaments” which took place at E3. The winner was awarded the trophy and was allowed it for one year, until the next competition and a new champion earned it for themselves. This particular trophy (and framed Street Fighter III t-shirt) was obtained from a Capcom employee.
