These Adorable Mortal Kombat Pop Figures Need to “Get Over Here!”
NetherRealm Studios’ Mortal Kombat series is mostly known for its violent and often gory fighting games. Outside the occasional Babality, one would not associate the long-running franchise with the cute imagery of Funko’s Pop! line of vinyl figures. Well now, as announced on the company’s blog, Mortal Kombat Pop figures will be making their way into fans and collectors hands this coming November. Alongside the announcement was a look at some of the most adorable bringers of brutality we’ve ever seen.
The first line-up of Mortal Kombat Pop vinyls includes the “undead ninja specter” Scorpion as well as his icy rival ninja Sub-Zero. Filling out the rest of the set is “the bicycle kicking Liu Kang, Kitana with her deadly fan, and Raiden with his recognizable coolie hat!” There’s also a Sub-Zero chase piece on the loose that has “a rarity of 1-in-6,” for those who don’t mind a little Pop! hunting.
For those that are looking for those variants, a maskless, flame-headed Scorpion is being sold exclusively at Hot Topic. Be also on the lookout for two alternative versions of Sub-Zero, Kitana, Raiden, and an exclusive Scorpion / Sub-Zero double-pack with the two standing side by side. The biggest of the limited variants is Goro, who towers over the other fighters at an appropriate 6″ tall. The two-pack and Goro are available only at GameStop.
While a new Mortal Kombat game hasn’t dropped since XL back in 2015, NetherRealm has kept the battle alive with a few guest appearances in Injustice 2. Sub-Zero was introduced back in the Fighter Pack 1 DLC and Raiden is to join the roster soon as part of the second Fighter Pack.
