I am pretty sure this will be a much better Con exclusive than the Sub Zero I picked up from Jazwares many years ago. I remember opening that sucker up right on the show floor, only for its head to fall off. I put it back in the box and never opened it again. That one hurt.
But that’s another era and another licensor – I’ve liked what I’ve seen from Mezco on this line thus far. But what I’m really waiting for is for some One:12 Collective goodness to be announced. It has begun!
When we posted about the pre-order deal for Mezco’s Mortal Kombat X Series 2, we just had teaser images for Quan Chi, Kitana, and Kotal Kahn. With the official pre-order pages for Mortal Kombat X figures going up on the Mezco website today, now we’ve got the full looks at each of the three 6-inch figures.
As of early this morning, the three were still discounted to $19.80 as a special pre-order. The three figures for series 1, Sub-Zero, Scorpion, and Raiden, are still available to pre-order at the regular price $22 a piece. Series 1 is due to ship in June, while series 2 is due in November. It has begun!
Sale coincides with launch of Mortal Kombat X video game
To celebrate the release today of the new Mortal Kombat X video game, Mezco is offering 10% off on pre-orders of their newly-announced Mortal Kombat X Series 2 6-inch action figure sets. The second series of Mortal Kombat X figures includes fan-favorite (haha!) Kitana, the malevolent Quan Chi, and newcomer Kotal Kahn.
Mezco will be making the figures available for pre-order starting at 10AM EST at the Mezco Toyz website, and for today only, they’ll be 10% off the regular price! If you haven’t already, you’ll also be able to pre-order Sub-Zero, Scorpion, and Raiden from Mortal Kombat X Series 1.

No offense to Living Dead Doll collectors, but when that was the bulk of what Mezco was making, it was a far cry from those heady days when Hellboy comic and movie figures were dominating my shelves. But with their recent license acquisitions, coupled with setting a new bar for mixed media action figures in the 6-inch scale, Mezco is back, baby!
Today I got a closer look at the One:12 scale Batman and Judge Dredd, the Mortal Kombat X figures, and some upcoming figures for Breaking Bad.
I still remember that San Diego Comic-Con years ago when Jazwares had first acquired the Mortal Kombat license – I got the Sub-Zero exclusive and was so let down. I often think about customizing some figures, but that time has passed for me. Here’s a set of Mortal Kombat ninjas from Jinzin, using DC Universe Classics as base figures.
Mortal Kombat Sub Zero by Jinzin – one of the original ninjas, this look is based on Sub-Zero’s appearance in the first Mortal Kombat game – ends Apr 12, 2014 17:47:30 PDT
Mortal Kombat Scorpion by Jinzin – also from the first Mortal Kombat, Scorpion was just a palette change from Sub-Zero, but still had the awesome GET OVER HERE spear attack – ends Apr 12, 2014 17:43:56 PDT
Mortal Kombat Smoke by Jinzin – one of the additions after Boon and Tobias realized people loved ninjas – Smoke is in his Shaolin Monks look – ends Apr 12, 2014 17:52:44 PDT
