San Diego Comic-Con 2011: Pop Culture Shock Collectibles Enters the Mortal Kombat Arena
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!
