Fans of the long-running “Mortal Kombat” series of fighting/violent disembowelment games are about to experience a 3-D recreation of the undead warrior Scorpion that’s guaranteed to rock them in a manner not unlike that of, say, a hurricane.
Pop Culture Shock is now taking preorders for this limited life-size bust of the harpoon-hurling Scorpion, allowing fans to safely experience his mindless vengeance in the comfort of their own homes.
In addition to looking fierce as mess, the statue includes shoulder pads and light-up eyes to convey the fierce power behind that ninja-hood.
Because we know you were thinking it: No, you cannot remove the hood to reveal a terrifying skull-face that will breathe fire upon you and reduce you to a charred husk. It’s for the best.
The bust is limited to 100 pieces, and will be available in the fourth quarter of 2013. Pre-orders are $600, so this is for only THE MOST HARDORE…EST “Mortal Kombat” fans.
UPDATE: Pop Culture Shock has now posted a pic of a statue based on Scorpion’s arch-rival Sub-Zero, complete with iced-up fists, that will be available for order on May 20! Now you can have these bad dudes face off, if you have the scratch! Here’s a pic:
