Enthusiast and reviewer BornFree has posted an interview with Jerry Macaluso -- founder and sculptor from Pop Culture Shock Collectibles.

Macaluso describes Mortal Kombat as the devil to fellow fighting game franchise Street Fighter's angel. Both series are represented in the Pop Culture Shock Collectibles line-up, brought to life as high quality statues, busts and dioramas.

The video interview includes a glimpse around the Pop Culture Shock studio, where works in progress offer teases of items to come. A life-size Scorpion bust represents the 'devil' analogy well, sure to compliment their recently released 1:1 Sub-Zero. Reptile and Scorpion also appear as much tinier heads, awaiting Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 inspired klassic bodies to sit upon.

The 1:4 scale Klassic Scorpion was previewed at this years San Diego Comic-Con International [images via StatueForum.com]. The retro inspired statue will be mirrored by Sub-Zero, with Reptile clearly in the works, as well. Retro items inspired by Mortal Kombat and Mortal Kombat II are also expected in future releases.
