Previews Exclusive Mortal Kombat Figures Include the Bloodiest Scorpion EVAH!



When I think of all the subpar Mortal Kombat figures I collected over the years because they were the only option, and then I look at these Mezco versions, I curse myself for being as impatient as my namesake in The Empire Strikes Back. These are what we should have been getting all along. And at just under $60 for all three of these variants – a frosty Sub-Zero, a blood-drenched Scorpion and a phasing Raiden/Rayden (seriously, dude, pick a spelling) – they’re somewhat reasonable by today’s standards.

Now, if they’d only “Get over here!” into my toy room, I’d have a Geekgality.
