Interesting Mortal Kombat stuff at Retro World Expo (Oct 15-16, 2016)
10/19/2016 03:08 PM EDT
So many cool, wonderful, and interesting things happened over the weekend! Where shall I start?

Outside, waiting in line, spotting Daniel Pesina:



Seeing official merchandise for sale like these MK hats:



Seeing unofficial creations for sale like these MK masks:



Or these MK magnets:









Or background stuff like the Goro standee from MK1:



They had an MKII (SNES) tournament there... but unfortunately there was a schedule conflict as Dan Pesina's panel on MK was at the same.





There were some MK Cosplayers there (Sektor and Cyrax):



There was also an MK cosplay contest scheduled, though it got cancelled:



I also got to meet Josh Tsui, the former Midway employee and MK team member who is shooting the Insert Coin documentary:



I also got to attend the Insert Coin panel he hosted:



Also, Dan Pesina was there signing autographs and even T-shirts. He brought with him this amazing behind the scenes footage of the original Mortal Kombat, as a complete DVD boxed set:





Finally, I managed to record Dan Pesina's panel in its entirety!



Let me know if you have any questions.

For the most in-depth, in-detail, Mortal Kombat lore analysis vids, there's only one source:

I see daniel pesina has gained weight. That behind the scenes dvd set isn't available for sale somewhere is it? I think I'd buy it if it were.

Im am very happy to have seen this interview. It explains alot how Mortal kombat's story and origin started. I love the part where Pesina said how he came up with scorpions iconic "get over here" move. I really thought it was Ed's idea. Fortunatly Ed's idea was not implemented. Im not wonder woman lol.

How can we take a look at the footage that's on the dvd's? I would defenitly buy the box set.

Daniel Pesina is active on facebook. Perhaps you could buy it from him. I think he's the one that released it.

Damn, I need those Nintendo magnets!

I used to collect fridge magnets. Most were from old local businesses, some were food items/other objects, and a couple butterflies.

True story, it happened to a friend of a friend of mine... EVERYBODY!
