Pop Culture Shock Collectibles has announced a licensing agreement with Warner Bros. Consumer Products to bring 1/4-scale mixed media statues of characters from the most brutal fighting game of all time, the legendary Mortal Kombat, to die-hard collectors’ homes this year, and we’ve got a look at the first one for Scorpion right here.

From the Press Release: Pop Culture Shock has made a name for itself with its Darkstalkers and ThunderCats statue lines, distributed through Sideshow Collectibles and Diamond Distribution. The Mortal Kombat fighters are the perfect addition to this ever-growing collectibles universe, offering highly detailed sculpting and meticulous painting that captures every determined scowl and evil grin to perfection.

“Having spent many years bringing the world warriors of Street Fighter to sculptural life, I’m extremely excited to add the unstoppable Mortal Kombat fighters to the Pop Culture Shock Collectibles lineup,” stated Jerry Macaluso, President and Founder of Pop Culture Shock Collectibles. “The Mortal Kombat video game series presents the player with a diverse collection of complex warriors each as unique as they are deadly. It is every artist’s dream to tackle a license like this and create sculptures so real you think they might attack!”

Pop Culture Shock Collectibles’ first sculpture for their Mortal Kombat line will be SCORPION, a collectible so jam-packed with detail, a true fan’s only response will be “GET OVER HERE!” SCORPION makes his debut wearing his costume from the latest Mortal Kombat video game, developed by NetherRealm Studios and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, and is posed mid-action with his spear atop a glow-in-the-dark base riddled with the remains of fallen enemies. The Sideshow Collectibles exclusive version will come packed with a bonus piece – Scorpion’s true skeletal head!

Scorpion will make his first appearance in the Sideshow Collectibles Booth (#1929) at San Diego Comic-Con this July 20-24 and is available for pre-order at Sideshowtoy.com now!

Keep watching for more info as it develops at the official Pop Culture Shock Collectibles website.

NECA Announces Ashy Slashy Puppet Replica

Published

on

One of our favorite horror TV shows is Starz’s “Ash vs. Evil Dead,” and one of our favorite moments from the first two seasons is when Ash brings out his “Ashy Slashy” puppet.

If you’re like us and have been wondering when you could get your hands on an Ashy Slashy puppet of your own, today we have good news.

NECA has just announced its prop replica!

You can check out pics of the packaging reveal NECA did over on Facebook below, and then let us know if you’re going to be buying your very own Ash Slashy puppet.

We’ll let you know when the item becomes available for pre-order!

Rundown via NECA:
Every day can be demented play day with your very own Ashy Slashy puppet from Season 2 of Ash vs. Evil Dead! We’ve replicated Ash’s potty-mouthed little doppelganger from the asylum episodes for your (hopefully G-rated) entertainment.

This is a working puppet – insert your hand, and you can move the mouth; plus the arms are poseable thanks to inner articulation. 

Ashy Slashy is approximately 15” tall.

Freddy Krueger, Jason Voorhees, and the Xenomorph Getting Their Own 8-Bit Pop Vinyls

Published

on

Funko has released some delightful horror-themed products over the years, but this just takes the cake. They’ve announced a new line of 8-bit Pop Vinyl figures, which will feature pixelated versions of Freddy Krueger, Jason Voorhees, and the Xenomorph. I never thought I’d say it, but even Freddy Krueger looks cute.

Freddy and Jason will both come in standard editions, in addition to GameStop exclusives based on how they both appeared in their own NES video games. The Xenomorph will also have a Previews exclusive edition depicting it smeared with acid blood. Have a look at the images below to decide which versions you like best. Most of us would probably like to purchase all six!

These adorable (but still horrible) figures will be available in January, so make sure you don’t go bankrupt over Christmas.
