Yesterday I reviewed the excellent Mortal Kombat – Sub-Zero 1/12 Scale Figure by Storm Collectibles. The figure was a great kick off to the new Mortal Kombat line by Storm. With a great sculpt and top notch articulation, I felt it was a must own figure for fans of the game series. Today I continue our reviews with a look at Sub-Zero’s arch-enemy; the Netherrealm demon known as Scorpion. Much like the early games in the franchise, Scorpion shares the same sculpt as Sub-Zero, but includes his own set of unique accessories. I picked up the figure courtesy of Toyark sponsor Entertainment Earth. Read on for my thoughts on the figure as well as a full gallery.
Mortal Kombat, the long running video game franchise that has spanned multiple gaming generations, has always seemed like a perfect license for action figures. The characters were a mix of iconic martial arts movie as well as sci-fi and fantasy designs. As the series grew, more unique characters entered the fray, however, the license has sometimes seemed to have a rocky relationship with action figure collectors. Over the years, a number of companies have attempted to bring these characters to fans of the series. Companies ranging from Palisades Toys, Toy Island, Jazwares and Mezco (among others) have all attempted their own lines from different eras of the franchise. While some had decent runs (such as the Jazwares releases), many of these lines, unfortunately, rarely went on for more than a few waves, leaving fans without some of the most iconic characters that make up the rosters. Storm Collectibles is looking to change the game with their line up. Instead of focusing on mass market retail, they are taking the classic designs and creating fully packed collector level action figures.
Their first two Storm Collectibles Mortal Kombat Figures are now available in North America (they were released a couple months ago overseas). Today we take a look at Sub-Zero! Toyark sponsor Entertainment Earth sent along the figure. Read on to check out my review ad full gallery for the figure.
Storm Collectibles have captured the holy trinity of fighting game licenses with Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat and Tekken. All 3 will be done in the same scale and style, eventually giving collectors the ability to battle between the franchises on their shelves! A lot of figures and variants have been shown so far, but only a couple are out States side. Ryu was their first Street Fighter figure to drop, and joining him now is M. Bison. We’ve run him through a match with Ryu after the break, read on to check it out courtesy of site sponsor Entertainment Earth! FIGHT!
Hadouken! Today we are taking a look at another Ryu that recently dropped State side, Storm Collectibles Street Fighter V Ryu. This is a faithful interpretation of Ryu from the current Street Fighter. It’s a large 1:12(ish) scale line that keeps the exaggerated bulk seen in game. Question is – who’s Ryu is the best: S.H. Figuarts or Storm? Read on to check 60+ images and find out courtesy of Entertainment Earth!
