Mortal Kombat 1/12 Scale Pre-Painted Action Figure: Reptile (ASIA) sold

MORTAL KOMBAT!!

A familiar war cry to anyone who's ever even heard of a fighting game! Releasing in October 1992, this particular arcade fighting game garnered a lot of attention due to its mocapped characters, bloody fisticuffs, and gruesome FATALITIES! So gory was the game  (for the time), it sparked major debate on the controversies of "Video Game Violence". In fact, it's one of the two games, the other being Night Trap, that lead to the creation of the ESRB. Despite the toning down of violent elements in future releases of the franchise, it has remained as popular as ever with it's over the top characters and bloody finishes. Of course, it's managed to retain it's M for Mature rating.

The character that today's figure is based on carries a very special distinction. Not only was he the first every secret character in the Mortal Kombat series, but in all Versus Fighting Games ever! He would appear before fights leaving clues on how to find him. One had to play on a specific stage, "The Pit" in this case, while on single player, then earn a Double Flawless Victory without blocking, and finish with a Fatality. Sound tough huh? But that wasn't all, on The Pit stage you had to be lucky enough for something to fly past the moon, which is completely random. Only after you've met all those requirements will you face him at the Pit Bottom, and defeat him to unlock him. They really made you work for those unlockables back then, didn't they? If it was released now he'd probably be a timed store-exclusive Pre-Order Bonus to be later sold as an on-disc DLC character. 

Reptile himself was sort of color palette swap fusion of series mainstays Scorpion (the yellow ninja) and Sub-Zero (the blue ninja). From that we got the acid spitting humanoid lizard man Reptile (the green one, also just realized why he's green). The figure takes cues from his appearance in MKII. It's got a lot of detail put into the green costume with its scale-like appearance as well as his shin guards. It comes with several head parts including one based on his look in the original Mortal Kombat, a head based on MKII, and his reptilian head. It even has a long reptile tongue for his Fatality. Several hand parts are included, a pair have acid effects on them. Speaking of acid effects, this figure also comes with an effects part for his Force Ball attack!

For fans of the series, this is one Kool figure and would be a great addition to your Kollection. It'll be released in the third quarter of 2017 but pre-orders end on May 30, 2017.
