Toy Aisle Trolls is a feature highlighting acts of vandalism to in-store toy items. If you find a ruined package, a stolen figure, a swapped-out figure, or any other such acts, take a photo (cell phone photos are fine if they’re not blurry) and email them to poe AT poeghostal.com.
Poester HA sends along not one, not two, but three TATs found at two different TRUs in our friendly northern neighbor, Canada. Well, friendly except that they apparently also have douchebags who steal toys.
When Jazwares announced a new line of Mortal Kombat action figures to premiere alongside the new release, I was ecstatic. A lifetime fan of video games from the fighting genre, I love my SOTA Street Fighters to death and have always felt there was an unfilled hole in my collection where the Mortal Kombat fighters should be. With the recent revival of the fighting genre, beginning with the excellent Street Fighter, the news that Mortal Kombat was returning in a big way pleased me to no end.
When the game finally came out I was ever so pleased to find my expectations met: with a balanced and interesting new engine, sensational graphics, a fully realised story mode and some of the most despicable gore ever seen in a video game, Mortal Kombat was back! About the same time Jazwares revealed images from their first series of 6″ figures based on franchise favourites Sub Zero, Scorpion and Raiden, and subsequent images from a 3 3/4″ scale series. Fans were torn, prefering the look of the smaller figures to the seemingly less-detailed 1/12 scale toys. How do the final releases fare? Let’s find out!
Toys R Us has announced their SDCC exclusives for this year, and they’re kind of awesome.
Did I say kind of? I meant totally.
- Exclusive 8″ Classics Thundercasts Lion-O with metallic finish
- Bizarro vs. Faker MOTUC 2-pack
- Jazwares 6″ Mortal Kombat Dark Raiden
- Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Minimates
- And more that I care a bit less about, but you can see for yourself below.
Best of all, these figures will be available on TRU’s website as well as SDCC. Check out all the pics after the jump!
Jazwares’ Joe Amaro sends along this sneak peek at the 4″ Klassic Ninjas and 4″ Klassic Cyber Assassins.
With the exception of Reptile, I have no idea who these guys are. The Cyber Assassins have a kind of Tron-like vibe.
On a side note, Mortal Kombat Online had a recent interview with Joe regarding the MK lines.
