Storm Collectibles may not be able to exhibit their wares at San Diego Comic-Con this year, but that hasn't stopped them turning arcade klassics into physical reality. Motaro breaks the mold with an authentic equine body and oversized proportions! Take a look:
Standing an impressive 9.4" tall; the 1/12th scale Motaro towers over other action figures with his original centaur body fully in tact in all its poseable four-legged glory! Multiple points of articulation allow for the recreation of his victory pose, back leg kick, or looming upright charge pose!
Motaro is available now for online pre-order with a premium price tag of $110.00US. That includes 2 interchangeable heads, 3 pairs of hands, and a bloodied skeleton for a display shelf fatality!
Its another Mortal Kombat 3 offering from the popular Hong Kong toymaker, who recently unveiled MK3 Sub-Zero designs, and have previously released the Lin Kuei cyber-assassins and MK3 final boss Shao Kahn.
It's not often we see Motaro in merchandise. The centaur was last seen as a non-playable story mode character killed in Mortal Kombat (2011), with a compromised two-legged centaur version making his last playable appearance in 2006's Mortal Kombat: Armageddon. Johnny Cage fought one of his people in the animated Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion's Revenge.
