Collectibles dealer Pop Culture Shock Collectibles set up a display at New York Comic Con this year, and they presented an impressive display of busts from Mortal Kombat, Street Fighter, the H.P Lovecraft mythos, and Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers.
From Power Rangers, we have the original Green Ranger, Tommy Oliver, in full uniform. From the works of Lovecraft, there is the ever-classic and my personal favorite from the selection, Cthulhu himself. From the Mortal Kombat series, we have Kintaro, Quan Chi, and Kotal Khan. From the Street Fighter franchise, there is Akuma, Ibuki, and Dhalsim.
The sculpting on these statues are immaculate and stunning. I’m not event that familiar with fighting games, and the Kotal Khan is still pretty tempting to my poor wallet. The Cthulhu looks worth burning incense in front of and chanting in tongues.
They have plenty of other characters available on their website, including other Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat characters, Conan the Barbarian in his full Schwarzenegger glory, He-Man and She-Ra characters, thge ever-present Batman, John Rambo, and some of the mains from Sons of Anarchy.
Most importantly, they have E. Honda. That’s important because I can remember his name off the top of my head, and he’s a badass sumo wrestler. Also there’s Blanka, who I mostly know from a Chris D’elia bit and some comparisons to Wolverine.
If you want a look at all the characters they had set up at NYCC today, take a browse through the gallery below. I just figured out how to set one of those up today, so you better appreciate it. The alternative is just inserting them all in this post and forcing you to scroll to the bottom of the page, and that would just look atrocious. I’m a good internet man, so we couldn’t have that.
