In 2013, PCS’ massive 2013 Mortal Kombat 9 Scorpion Life-Sized bust was as imposing to people’s homes as it was the industry itself. With it’s light-up eyes and shoulder armor, it shouted, “I have arrived and the rules are different now.”
Four years later it is happening again, as the long-awaited PCS Exclusive Mortal Kombat X Scorpion 1:1 Scale Bust will finally be available for Pre-Order.
“The original 1:1 Scorpion was one of our best-selling lifesize busts” recounts PCS President Jerry Macaluso. “So this one is not just a companion piece to our MKX Sub-Zero bust released a few months ago, but a follow-up to something people were demanding.” His spiky shadow loomed large, but fortunately Netherrealm’s new design for the character is just as visually striking as the previous game’s, unique to itself yet still unmistakably Scorpion. If people loved the last one, just wait til they see what we’ve learned in the last 4 years.”
“Realistic” is an odd word to use for eyes without pupils, but it’s no less appropriate here, as somehow PCS has made Hanzo Hasashi’s revenant stare look eerily natural. And with their updated LED techniques, they once again glow brightly, even from underneath his battleworn hood.
This time, however, the Hapkido master rests on a pedestal of molten lava, resplendent in his majesty, juxtaposed by the iconic face mask you’ll swear must have been treated by the 1,000 swordsman PCS obviously has on payroll. “This man is a Warrior,” you instinctively understand. “This man has seen some things.”
Individually painted and finished to PCS’ highest standard of quality and attention to detail, all eyes will be drawn to him, pupils or otherwise, stung by the excellence of what will rightly take it’s place as the centerpiece of your collection.
