Starting with Noob Saibot!
Great to see some love for Noob Saibot!
But then again, I was a bit disappointed to see yet another palette swap ninja. We already have Scorpion & Sub-Zero released and Reptile is up for PO.. Where is Goro and Shao Kahn? No sign of them after being shown at several conventions..
Notice how I said "was"..
Just today, Storm Collectibles posted another teaser image on their page..
Hmm.. don't see it?
How about now?
That's Shao Kahn, Kitana, Liu Kang and Baraka! Holy shit!! There goes my complaint about palette swaps! If we can get these figures, the collection would be amazing! Of course, not hoping that they will stop there but go on to do the rest of the Kombatants!
Also hoping to get some news about the Bloody Variants soon..
In my previous post, I found these bloody versions up for PO..
On closer look, did that gif reveal the Scorpion Bloody Variant? Initially, I thought the blood effects were photoshopped in.. but let's take a look at the images again..
Looks like some blood effects painted on the Scorpion figure..
The blood splatter on the right must be photoshopped but the blood effects on Scorpion is consistent with the first pic.. and that is definitely an accessory at the neck to provide the Fatality effect.
That's great! I was worried the Bloody Variant would come with just some blood splatter on the clothes but if accessories are included, count me in! Hoping there will be more unique accessories included..
Are you excited for these?!
