At New York Comic-Con 2018, Storm Collectibles and Bluefin released two new Ninja exclusives in Rain and Smoke. Then, last month they unleashed the Storm Collectibles Goro figure on US collectors. We’ve had these in hand for a bit, and have finally been able to set time to do a proper photo shoot. Bluefin sent the three figure along, and we have over 75 high resolution images to check out. After the jump, you can see my thoughts on the figures as well as the new gallery.

For San Diego Comic-Con 2018, Storm Collectibles and Bluefin teamed up to offer a new variant of the Mortal Kombat 1/12 Scale Ninja Figure. The new figure is a Mortal Kombat 1 & 2 styled Ermac. A fusion of many souls, Ermac is initially under the control of Shao Kahn. With the death of Shao Kahn in Mortal Kombat (2011), Ermac is freed from his control and aligns himself with Kotal Kahn, the new ruler of Outworld. Due to the overwhelming number of souls at his disposal, Ermac has mastered telekinesis and teleportation. As with all of their Ninja figures, Ermac includes interchangeable masks, swap out hands and character themed effects pieces.
Our friends at Bluefin sent along an Ermac for us to check out. After the jump you can see our thoughts and a full photo gallery.
Storm Collectibles have been killing it with the fighting figures over the last year and change, and SDCC 2018 saw 3 awesome releases from them. Heihachi from Tekken along with Alex and Shin Akuma from Street Fighter. Today we are taking a quick look at Akuma! This figure features new articulation in the legs and upper body as he rocks his classic hair style – no lion’s mane here. He has a reddish tint, white hair, and veins showing on all skinned areas. The accessories include an alternate gi with his kanji lettering on the back, 3 heads, 4 sets of hands, a Gohadouken blast, stand for the blast, and two flaming effect pieces for the arms. Oh and of course he has his signature prayer beads around the neck.
All in all it’s a really sharp release. I personally prefer this version of Akuma to the standard SFV version and the alternate color scheme on the skin makes him stand out on the shelf. If you dig the line, he’s definitely worth a pick up!

In 1993, Mortal Kombat II introduced the supreme ruler of Outworld; the emperor Shao Kahn. Since then, he has remained one of the Mortal Kombat series’ primary antagonists, often serving as the final boss. Shao Kahn is a ruthless conqueror who sets his sites on Earthrealm, hoping to rule it alongside Outworld. Prevented from taking the realm by force, Shao Kahn is required to earn 10 consecutive victories in the Mortal Kombat tournament by the Elder Gods. Only then will Earthrealm be his for the taking. After 9 consecutive victories, his champions are ultimately defeated by Liu Kang and the Earthrealm warriors. After the crushing defeat, he lures their champions to Outworld, laying the seeds to invade Earth regardless of the outcome.
Shao Kahn is a massive warrior, sporting a warlord style outfit. He rarely removes his Warlord Helmet, and features spiked shoulder pads, all while wielding his oversized Wrath Hammer. His appearance is captured perfectly in a new 1/12 scale action figure by Storm Collectibles. Our friends at Bluefin have sent along the figure for us to check out. Read on for my thoughts and a full gallery of the figure.
Disguised as an Earthrealm ninja, the cunning Reptile is a loyal assassin and warrior for Shao Kahn. The last of his kind, Reptile once hid his true form, revealing himself only to those who would fall at his hands. First appearing in the original Mortal Kombat as a hidden opponent, Reptile has evolved greatly throughout the Mortal Kombat series, starting as a color swapped Ninja, and eventually becoming a completely unique character design. His most memorable appearances, though, are from the original two games.
Storm Collectibles has taken their excellent ninja sculpt and reworked it to become Reptile. The figure joins Sub-Zero, Scorpion and Noob Saibot in the growing line, which will see Shao Kahn released next! Our friends at Bluefin have sent along the figure for us to check out. Read on for a full write up and over 60 photos of the excellent figure.
Today we are catching up with Storm Collectibles Street Fighter figures with a look at the recently released Zangief! He’s the latest State-side release so far. Towering over all the other Street Fighter 5 figures, he comes in at 8.5 inches. Storm’s fighter figures are bulky by default and Zangief keeps that going at the taller height. He is a big dense brick of plastic, and that’s a good thing. He feels great in hand. Articulation is still there though, and sculpting, especially on the face, is on point. We’ve done up over 45 HD images so read on to check him out!
Double header today! Next up is Storm Collectibles Street Fighter V “Hot Ryu”. This is Ryu’s alternate look in the game, shirtless, bearded and scarred. He was originally a SDCC 2017 exclusive, but has trickled out to retailers online since. I can’t comment on the hotness, but as a figure he’s fire. The stance is great, and he moves and poses better than the original Storm Ryu. Sculpting is sharp throughout capturing the scars and tattered pants. While not an original look, he’s a welcome addition to the Street Fighter display. Read on to check out over 40 HD images!
Time to run some catch up and take a look at Storm Collectibles Street Fighter V Ken Masters. Ken dropped earlier in the year featuring his new SFV look complete with athletic shirt, gi on the waist and new hairdo. For those looking to swap these Storm pieces in for a classic SF look line up, Ken won’t do it. That being said, he is a true to game representation of 5’s Ken. As with all the Storm Collectibles 1/12 fighters so far, he has a bulky frame with a wide range of articulation and great accessories. Let’s take a look at him and what he can do after the break!
Last month, I took a look at the first two Storm Collectibles Mortal Kombat Figures; Sub-Zero and Scorpion. Today, I’m continuing with the latest release, the San Diego Comic-Con 2017 Exclusive Noob Saibot. In the game series, Noob Saibot is Bi-Han, the Sub-Zero from the original Mortal Kombat, killed by Scorpion in the tournament. He is resurrected as Netherrealm wraith by the sorcerer Quan-Chi. Originally the character was merely a shadowy version of the Sub-Zero sprites, the character was eventually fleshed out in the story, and given a proper, unique look. The figure, a repaint of the same mold used for Sub Zero and Scorpion, includes many of the same interchangeable parts and accessories as Scorpion. Two new blood effects pieces were added to this release. The figure stands nearly 7″ tall.
Bluefin, the North American distributor of the Storm Collectibles figures, has sent along the Noob Saibot 1/12 Scale Figure for us to check out. After the jump, find my thoughts on the release as well as a full gallery.
