Future figure waves will have a similar formula with a Previews Exclusive, and convention exclusive figures.
Availability: July 2015
Sculpt & Paint:
Sub-Zer0 – Includes multiple layers of paint with a blue, black, brown, and silver deco. He has one of the best constructed sculpts with non-removable accessories hidden his outfit including knives with sheaths to hold them in. All joints are solid and the plastic used is top notch. He features interchangeable hands, and includes an ice hammer, and an ice sword.
Raiden – A highly detailed and painted figure, Raiden includes a complex paint scheme with patterns on his blue and gold robe, gauntlets, and boots, while leaving the white robe untouched but still very well detailed. He features interchangeable hands, one set with a lightning effect, and the second set can hold the lightning bolt in one hand. He also includes a removable round hat.
Scorpion – The best feature that comes with this figure is the chains. That accessory is something never done to a Scorpion figure before (to our knowledge) and the fact that he can hold these chains to fighting poses is superb. He also includes a highly detailed paint deco and sculpt with a yellow, black, and brown. He has some more articulation compared to Sub-Zero as his waist twist is above the belt. He features a removable mask, and includes chains, 2x swords, and interchangeable hands.
Mezco is doing a stellar job on their Mortal Kombat X figures and we cannot get over the great sculpt, paint, and detail that come with these figures. From what we’ve seen so far, this is the best Mortal Kombat line ever offered and we look forward to future offerings.
