Mortal Kombat is getting a new line of action figures from Funko. Standing at 5.5 inches tall, these seem to be modeled after the figures they did for the short-lived show Son of Zorn, and follow the successful Rick and Morty wave from earlier this year. Five figures in all will be available in the first wave: Scorpion, Sub Zero, Kitana, Raiden, and Liu Kang.
Funko Mortal Kombat Figures
The popular video game franchise Mortal Kombat
is the latest to join Funko Action Figures!
These fully articulated figures stand roughly 5 ½ inches tall,
many of which hold deadly weapon accessories!
The series includes Scorpion, Sub-Zero, Raiden, Kitana, and Liu Kang!
Well, one thing I will say is that the cardback is… okay?
Man, these just do not do anything for me. The male figures look like scaled-up mystery minis. The sculpts look pretty good, but the bent-knees look is not flattering at all. They look a little too bulky. The best-looking figure is Kitana, and even that one has some weird proportions. Accessories look to be character-accurate, but after getting the Rick and Morty ones, that doesn't excite me too much. They were flimsy and too small. Things snapped easily and were lost, and these look similar. Hopefully they use a different material for them.
I guess I just do not know who these are for. There is no shortage of Mortal Kombat figures — both high-end and affordable options. And most of these are the same characters that have been done before. What would interest me would be if they started doing characters like Baraka, Jax, and Smoke — ones that usually don't see release. Until then, I will be skipping these.
If you are so inclined, however, they will be in stores in January. You can preorder them right here.
