From the auction:
Capcom originally manufactured 3 bronze statues to use at E3 as part of the Street Fighter 2 Tournament. There was a large identical statue given to the winner of the competition who got to keep it for 1 year until the following tournament. These were the other 2 statues which were smaller in size but still identical.
How did I get these?
I got these directly from a former Capcom employee. I have several items from here and these are the 2 pieces I am not that fond of. The former employee gave me all of the following info to the best of their knowledge and is deemed as credible
These are the only 2 Bronze statues of this size. The only other one is the larger one which was given to the winner to hold for a period of one year until the next tournament. at E3. These were manufactured in 1997+- and use for about 3 years. It is not sure if these were manufactured for sample or pre-production units. The larger one was giving to a magazine “Tips and Tricks” or “Video Game Magazine” (to the best of their knowledge).
