Pre-order World Box 1/6 scale "Mortal Kombat " SUB-ZERO 12-inch ninja collectible figure

Mortal Kombat (commonly abbreviated "MK") is a series of fighting games created by Ed Boon and John Tobias. The first four renditions and their updates were developed by Midway Games and initially released on arcade machines, and later to home consoles. The development of the first game was originally based on idea of making a video game starring Jean-Claude Van Damme, but that idea fell through and Mortal Kombat was created instead and released in 1992.

Sub-Zero is a video game character from the Mortal Kombat series and one of the original characters in the first Mortal Kombat game in 1992. A mainstay of the series, the character has appeared in every Mortal Kombat fighting game and also appears in many other Mortal Kombat media works such as the Mortal Kombat live action film series and animated series.

According to Mortal Kombat co-creator John Tobias, Sub-Zero was originally conceived as a character named simply Ninja, a mysterious member of "the Lin Kuei, a legendary clan of Chinese ninja."

This is the soon-to-be-released World Box 1/6 scale "Mortal Kombat " SUB-ZERO 12-inch collectible figure. He will come with a 1/6 scale Head sculpt, 2.0 durable body, Scarf, Jacket, Ninja clothing, Ninja pants, Upper arm protectors, Arm protectors, Belt, Leg wrappings, Left hand x 2, Right hand x 2, Feet, Skull, Spine, broken neck, Ice Sword, Blood spray effect.

As a dear friend pointed out "the blood splatter wrap-around reminded me of the old 'arrow through the head' gag made popular by comics and kids." haha

You can also pose him next to Snake Eyes (check out Hot Toys 1/6th scale G.I. Joe Retaliation: Snake Eyes reviews HERE and HERE) and COBRA Firefly (Sideshow COBRA Firefly 1:6 Figure Review HERE, HERE and HERE) or even Storm Shadow (some pictures HERE) or with the whole ninja gang (group pictures HERE)

With this release I hope that they will make Scorpion, Rayden, Jonny Cage or someone from MK to go with it. I've pre-ordered this at BBTS a while ago because Im a huge MK fan, and I hope this isn't the only 1/6 scale MK figure we'll get. And since this figure has the MK9 (2011) look, and is one of the characters on the game cover (the other one being Scorpion,) I hope they continue with the characters from that game. If more figures are to come, I'll build myself a custom The Pit diorama :)
