I know I haven’t talked much about Mortal Kombat on ASM. Truth is, I loved the original few games. Kitana and Sub-Zero? Those were my jam in the MK2 middle of a sandwich with MK1 and Ultimate MK3 as the… horrible analogy gone even more wrong. Anyway, suffice it to say, I plunked many a quarter into those games back in the day, but I didn’t keep up after I left college and didn’t have easy access to arcade games, nor a home console powerful enough to play the later versions.
But when I saw these pics from Mezco, I instantly thought two things: 1) Holy cow, things sure look different in Mortal Kombat X than I remember and 2) I wonder if I could still kick butt with Kitana. (Answer: No.)
Still, I may have to start looking at these MK figures that Mezco is putting out. They look rather nice, and the scale is great. Read more about it in the press release after the jump.
Mezco Reveals Mortal Kombat X Series 2 Figures
New York- Mortal Kombat is one of the most successful and influential video game franchises ever created. Having celebrated over two decades of success and with nine games in its legacy and an all new next gen platform game being released on Tuesday 4/14, the Mortal Kombat brand is a top rated and earning game brand that is a fan favorite. With gamer anticipation at a record high, millions of units of the game have already been pre-sold.
Amidst this whirlwind of excitement and anticipation, Mezco reveals their Mortal Kombat X Series 2 action figures.
To ensure a game accurate likeness, correct to the finest detail, Mezco’s award-winning design team has digitally sculpted the figures using the digital files from the game developers themselves.
Mezco’s 6inch scale version features more than 17 points of articulation, many with ball joints, allowing them to recreate all the moves and poses that have made them part of gaming legend.
Series 2 features:
Kitana: 10,000 years old, but considered young in her realm of Edenia, she rose to great importance; first as the loyal stepdaughter of Shao Kahn, then as his enemy, tearing herself away from his grasp and freeing her home realm of Edenia. She also led an army into Outworld to combat any chance of Shao Kahn rising to power again. Kitana comes with game specific accessories.
Kotal Kahn: A new character in Mortal Kombat X. A general under Shao Kahn’s command, he is of the Osh-Tekk race. He then served under Empress Mileena after the death of Shao Kahn. Eventually Kotal seized control of the throne and Outworld. Now, he faces Mileena and Reiko in a civil war for Outworld. Kotal Kahn comes with game specific accessories.
Quan Chi: The most powerful sorcerer and necromancer in the Netherrealm. Quan Chi combines both cunning and brute force in his never-ending plots to overtake not only Earthrealm, but all of reality. He is an opportunist and will ally himself with anyone who can help him further his own goals. He is notable in particular for his ruthlessness and pragmatism. His manipulative and deceptive nature has earned him many enemies, including Sub-Zero and Scorpion, whose entire family and clan he destroyed. Quan Chi comes with game specific accessories.
Each figure comes in a sturdy package perfect for display.
Mezco’s Mortal Kombat X Series 2 Figures battle on store shelves beginning November 2015.
