Australian Retail Advertisement Includes Reptile in Mortal Kombat X?

As the April home console release of Mortal Kombat X draws near, fan mania is reaching new, fever pitched highs. The reveal of "a hell of a lot more" is on the horizon, but that won't stop the hysteria producing a few more bogies, along the way.

Australian retail chain JB Hi-Fi has fuelled speculation with the inclusion of Reptile into one of their banner house ads for the pre-order title [below]. This is a legitimate advertisement on an established major retailer, but not all is as it seems.

The cult favourite Mortal Kombat original appears in a line-up with official Mortal Kombat X render artwork for: Kotal Kahn, Raiden, D'Vorah & Kano. If you think the pose and quality is out of place - you're correct. It is.

Closer inspection quickly identifies the Reptile image as the work of UK fan artist: Ryan Crosby. The image was posted in 2012, and thanks to fan enthusiasm, appears in a mix of official and unofficial results in a quick google search for "Mortal Kombat Reptile".

While the fan created nature of the image eliminates its authenticity, the question remains: Why did JB-HiFI use it? Could a wayward Google search be indication of the character's ultimate inclusion - known to retailers? Or, is this simply an overzealous employee? JB were yet to respond at the time of this article. Join the speculation on the forum.

This isn't the first time unofficial character artwork has prompted premature celebrations. Bernard Beneteau's creations sparked rumors in June, when his Ermac Concept Art made the rounds.

Tiny Image On Twitter - Confirmed Fake Making Rounds

https://twitter.com/TheGuyverUnit/status/554491078896652288

Forgive me for not knowing how to embed tweets on here, but this guy is claiming to have seen this ad on a game site, shows what looks to be a new render but is completely tiny.

Thoughts? Real or fake?

It's suppose to be reptile.

I'm fairly sure I've seen that exact image before though, as fanart.

Also it's in a different pose than the rest of the characters.. Look at the third image for closeup

Figured out how to zoom in. While it looks like a penis behind a curtain when it's extremely tiny, it is indeed Reptile. Would be interesting if that were a leak.

They probably thought it was real. The fact is, that it's been posted on fanart sites for months. It isn't.

I gotta admit, I clicked on this thread thinking it was another fan reading too much into some small hint. I'm happy to have been wrong, and I'm liking what i see so far. EDIT: Fake, huh? That's disappointing.

Did you really need to make a new thread when it's already established fake?

RE: Reptile Confirmed - Leaked Ad From JB HI FI

Reptile didn't really seem to "fit in" with all the other characters shown. He was much more close up and posed differently, which makes me skeptical. If anyone has proof that this is fake, like a link to the actual image they ripped the Reptile from, that'll solidify it. It definitely wouldn't surprise me.

Edit: Here you go:

hey
