Can we expect a Premium Format Shao Kahn and Goro? Will they be larger than the current premium formats since Kahn and Goro are larger?

As it stands, both are suitable candidates for the Premium Format treatment. Whilst we have nothing to announce right now, they are both possibilities. Regarding the scale, they will be to proportion against the other characters and would be a few inchers higher/wider.

Two things:


First.. it was mentioned there could be a sneak of Motaro here, or at least it was alluded to, should it be asked? Can't believe no1 has taken that up yet.. SNEAK OF MOTARO PLZ :).. the good people of MKO deserve a sneak of Motaro given that you guys were the one to give birth to him (put the statue being made in motion)

Second.. Just a bit of feedback. The Shao Kahn bust is amazing, your best yet IMO. As perfect as it is, the only thing I would suggest or add to this bust is add a curve or an angle to the helmet guarding at the back. That has always been an iconic feature of shao kahn to me:

http://img819.imageshack.us/img819/879/kahnpic2.jpg

It is sort of like a lion's maine or a lizard's frill - it has always been large and deserving of an emperor.. the guarding also reminded me of a warlord's, wearing it proudly - which is suited to Shao Kahn, and just a feature that always stood out to me.

Of course you have my purchase either way on this, it looks insane, but if we are aiming for perfection.. ;)

Hello.

Thanks for the feedback. The Kahn bust is not finished yet, there are still a few more details and finishing touches to be added. This is something I've noted and will be bringing up with the sculptors. Expect some more images soon of the Emperor.

Regarding Motaro, he is still on the sculpting table and there isn't an awful lot to show of him right now. Rest assured though we will be providing MKO with exclusive coverage of his development and you shall also receive some MKO-centric benefits. You'll be the first to know when the centaur is camera-ready!

Hey.

Johnny is coming along nicely. Just a few more details to his sculpt need adjusting and some general overall polish. He is set to be submitted to WB for approval in the next couple weeks. So once he comes back with the green light from them we shall be able to unveil him for you.

Kano and Nightwolf are awesome characters and I wouldn't rule them out. Neither are in line for the next 3-4 statues we have in production right now, but they may come afterwards. You may be seeing Kano sooner than you think. Cameo appearance, anyone? grin

Hey. At the rate we are progessing right now, it's quite possible that he could be created by the year's end. This is subject to change however but this does allocate a fair amount of time to produce some more characters. Thanks for your question!

How's Skarlet coming along? I've received my Kitana statue, and I love her. I'm gonna place my order for Mileena tomorrow and Jade soon to follow. I was debating whether or not to get Skarlet, so I guess it'll depend on the final product. Anyway, I'm excited to get my next two.

Hey LucaTurilli, Skarlet's pose for the statue was ultimately decided by all of you here at MKO. She is currently still on the drawing board, basically just finalising everything for her sculpt and overall aesthetic. She shall enter the sculpting process over the next month or two and we will have some images of her development along with details as soon as they are readily available. She won't dissapoint you. wink

My question is also regarding Shao Kahn.
Will you produce the standard statue as opposed to(or along with) the premium format?
The price point is better and there are more regular statues than premium scale.
Also, could he have red LED eyes and a removable helmet?

Thanks for your question.

Currently, Shao Kahn is only scheduled as a 1:2 Scale Bust. The Emperor may see a transition into the 10" and 18" lines, but there is currently no news or information I can give to you right now. Though, given his stature and popularity; the fans will ultimately dictate which other mediums Shao Kahn might appear in. wink

Hi there,

What are the chances that you may get to all the Ninja's in the 18" format as you have done 4 fantastic versions already. They would look in complete if they didn't have their buddy's or enemy's. Also would it be possible for Syco to develop an ice ball or something to fit into the Sub Zero's 18" hand at some point in time. I know I would buy one.

Keep up the great work guys.

It's a possibility, but essentially most characters will just appear in one format. In saying that however, a few characters have platformed from one format to the other and this could continue if the demand is there. Thanks for your question!

Hello there. These are the characters we have currently announced.

10" Line: Noob Saibot, Sindel, Skarlet, Johnny Cage, Motaro

18" Line: Rain, Scorpion

We still have plenty more to announce and reveal though. So if your favourite character hasn't been announced yet, don't sweat it as they could still be on the cards! -D

We don't have Baraka and Reptile on the sculpting table just yet, but they are both definitely possibilities; we don't have anything to announce on them right now.

Hello,

I haven't been on the forum much since the game's release, but I have been aware of this discount on the Syco products.

I was looking on Syco's page, and it says the Kitana statue is in stock. However, when I click the discount link on this very thread, it says that the item is still on preorder.

Can the discount link still be used, or is it now invalid? If I use the discount link, will they send one of the in stock statues, or will I be put on some sort of waiting list?

I just want to be sure that this discount still works. I really want the statue, and this money off of it would be a huge help.

Thanks, guys!

There has been a considerable amount. Remember when we told you guys that we could produce the DLC characters? Nothing to announce right now. But Kenshi and his subsequent demand haven't been forgotten. wink

Our discount links received an update. I'm unsure if that reflects here at MKO. If you can, please send me an e-mail at - tony@sycoconsumerproducts.com - I'll be able to discuss things further with you and work something out. Thanks!

Admin Edit: Links [Kitana] are as provided by Syco, order status subject to their updates. Cheers.
