They've set a standard for high-quality action figure merchandise -- and now McFarlane Toys are teasing their next big license: Mortal Kombat! A blood spattered social media post only has two words to note, but they tell us everything we need to know:
The teaser was posted to the McFarlane Toys Gaming page, where the toymaker already caters to fans of Fortnite, Borderlands, Cuphead, and more. It follows recent news of a partnership with fellow Warner Brothers brand, DC Comics, which will see a line of 6-12 inch action figures coming in 2020. Another, more oblique teaser image was posted to McFarlane Toys Gaming late last week, possibly alluding to the spear weapon used by Scorpion.
It isn't the first time prolific founder Todd McFarlane has discussed business with a NetherRealm Studios property. In 2015 he revealed a licensing agreement with Warner Bros that allowed his comic book creation Spawn to be used in Mortal Kombat X for a limited time. He has since expressed the belief that Spawn will soon feature as a guest fighter in Mortal Kombat 11. This is as yet unverified.
