Bluefin, the leading North American distributor of toys, collectibles, and hobby merchandise from Japan and Asia, accents the holidays this year with highlights of a variety of unique collectibles that will make ideal gifts for that special fan or collection.
Bluefin will preview new Storm Collectibles figures from Mortal Combat (Noob Saibot) and Street Fight V (Hot Ryu) at San Diego Comic-Con 2017.
Inspired by two of video gaming’s most popular fighting titles, these new figures will be offered as Limited Edition 2017 Comic-Con Exclusives and will be available only from Bluefin during the convention. Each poseable figure stands 7 inches tall and features more than 30 points of articulation.
San Diego Comic-Con 2017 takes place at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, California, during the weekend of July 19 – July 23.
Mortal Kombat was one of the very few movie adaptations of a videogame to actually work. No surprise then, that the franchise is making a comeback – the surprise is that it will be a web series starring Michael Jai White [Spawn, Black Dynamite] and Jeri Ryan [Star Trek Voyager, Dark Skies], according to a report by ew.com’s Darren Franich.
An even bigger surprise is that White and Ryan will be reprising the roles they played in the above video – a kind of unofficial test reel written and directed by Kevin Tancharoen, who will be working on the series.
Shooting for Mortal Kombat is underway for a premiere somewhere around the time of the new Mortal Kombat game.
