Paper Model Series: SDE’s STREET DOG FIGHTER “GUILE (Sonic Bark)” by Willie Beren (VA Paper Toys)

Wow! I haven’t blogged since March. So sorry, folks. I am swamped with work, but I now have enough spare time to add to this blog.

Here is part three of Street Dog Evolution’s Street Dog Fighter Series…

Guile made his first appearance in Street Fighter II (1991) as one of the eight selectable characters featured in the first release of the game.

A Joint Terminal Attack Controller (JTAC) in the United States Air Force Tactical Air Control Party, he leaves his country and family to enter the World Warrior tournament to avenge the death of his friend Charlie, who was killed by M. Bison, the tournament’s sponsor, sometime before the events of the game.

Guile is quite tough, both physically and mentally. He has survived a lot, and is still standing, as well as still fighting. A stoic man at heart, Guile’s calm and emotionless exterior actually hides the rage he has after Charlie’s death. Although loyal to the military and the United States, Guile is extremely persistent. He is so driven to find out who betrayed him in the jungles of Thailand, and to try and get at M. Bison, that he would even put that over his duties. Despite this, he is a truly loving husband and father to his family.

In his ending, he defeats Bison, but is dissuaded from killing him by his wife and their daughter.

Guile’s two special moves are the Sonic Boom: a projectile-based attack and the Flash Kick. In the video game, both moves require charging.

The paper model here sports Guile’s trademark military haircut that is gravity-defying, he is wearing standard issue combat uniform, and he is sporting flame-colored energy projections on both his arms. I had a very easy time assembling this figure because I am now quite familiar with the SDE model.

If you want to try assembling this model, you may download it at the VA Paper Toys website. [click here]
