Well, at least Mortal Kombat is my favorite fighting game series of all time. While I can admit that it may not be the greatest fighting game ever made, or even the most popular, none of that matters to me. Some of my best memories from childhood until now are of playing the various incarnations of the infamous series. I still remember getting the original for Christmas for SEGA from my grandmother and her being appalled when myself and my cousins were playing it and she walked by. Now I can finally add the characters to my Funko Pop displays.
Funko is excited to announce the popular video game
franchise Mortal Kombat is now receiving the Pop! vinyl treatment.
This series features the undead ninja specter
Scorpion, and his nemesis Sub-Zero.
In addition, the bicycle kicking Liu Kang, Kitana with her deadly fan,
and Raiden with his recognizable coolie hat!
Look for Sub-Zero chase piece!
A rarity of 1-in-6.
As to be expected, Sub-Zero, and Scorpion are well represented in various versions here. I am excited to see Kitana make an appearance in this first wave. She looks pretty awesome; I love the look. Liu Kang and Raiden are cool characters, but kinda boring to look at. Goro being a store exclusive sucks, but I am glad he is in scale and a six-inch Pop; that's the way it should be.
The coolest looking Pop is the Hot Topic exclusive Scorpion with his flaming skull head — man, is that badass. Hopefully the trend of Hot Topic getting a ton of their exclusives holds for the releases of this one as well. The only difference I can see between the regular Sub-Zero and the chase is that in the chase, he has ice blasts in his hands. Am I missing something here? For a chase, I was hoping for something a little bit more.
All of these will be in stores in November.
