Got this beast a while back. I was so impatient for this. All those who saw this statue were talking about huge he is, and it didn't disappoint.
Goro came in a huge box..
Now that the other pics are out of the way, let's look at the statue itself.
But before that.. I would like you to click on the 'play' button and let it play as background music, as you scroll through the pics..
I wasn't one of those lucky kids who played the classic Mortal Kombat games in the arcade or on the home consoles. My first experience with Mortal Kombat was the first movie.. which is why, everytime I see Goro, this theme plays in the back of my head.
So, I hope you enjoy the pics with the theme music as well.
The muscular body and veins have been done very realistically.
Check out the spotted back and wrinkles on his back. Gives that human-dragon hybrid look that the description at the back of the box describes.
A brilliant statue. It's huge, almost like a 1/3 statue. Goro is a lot taller than an average human and it shows.. I'll get some pics with the rest of the Ninjas once I move this over but pics online have showed that the Goro statue stands a head taller than the Ninjas.
Great to see PCS not discounting on the scale and putting him in scale with the rest. Having the entire line on the same shelf will be amazing, while showing off the different heights of the fighters.
I am getting the EX versions for all the Klassic statues, so here I'll show you the alternate head that came with the Goro EX..
The alternate head comes with a more angry expression. Gives me options for the type of expression that I want to portray Goro on display.
Not a lot to choose from, between the two heads but I just wanted to be consistent with the Klassic line where I have all the EX versions. Might just choose the EX head for display for the sole reason of it being the EX..
An amazing piece that will look good on it's own or with the rest of the Klassic line.
Just 1 more pic to show you the size of this statue.. It's not the best choice to compare it with, considering the difference in scale, but I know a lot of you, readers are Assassin's Creed fans. So, just a preview..
