MA-11 Chun-Li vs G. I. Joe Chun-Li

I recently received a Microman Chun-Li. She is from the 2004 series under the Micro Action label which is Microman's licensed figure line. Since Microman is nearly in scale with G.I.Joe and that line had a brief run of Street fighter figures I thought a comparison was in order. The difference is night and day. The G. I. Joe figure is saddled with an unfortunate kicking action feature which really screws up both leg articulation and the shape of the hips. The face sculpt is pretty nice given that it is meant to be a realistic interpretation of the character (as opposed to anime looking). The Microman figure on the other hand looks pretty cartoony but still very nice.

Edit: here is a picture:
