Jazwares is making new a toyline of Mortal Kombat and Street Fighter

http://www.figures.com/forums/news/12547-tf2011-mortal-kombat-street-fighter.html

Jazwares revealed their upcoming Mortal Kombat and Street Fighter toy lines at the New Yor Toy Fair this week. The company behind such great toy lines as Sonic and the awesome Robot Chicken figures, will be producing 3.75" and 6" scaled figures of the upcoming Mortal Kombat video game which is set to release this April. While prototypes of the upcoming figures were not avaialable at the time of the show, package samples were on display and reveal what looks to be a very promising toy line. Here are the assortment details so far (release dates to be determined):

Mortal Kombat 6" Modern Figures
- Raiden
- Johnny Cage
- Scorpion
- Sub Zero

Mortal Kombat 3.75" Classic Figures
- Sub Zero
- Smoke
- Scorpion
- Reptile

Mortal Kombat 3.75" Robot Cyborg Box Set
- Smoke
- Cyrax
- Sektor

But that's not all... Jazwares is also working on a series of 3.75' figure 2-packs based on Super Street Fighter IV and Street Fighter II. The figures were be in accurate to one another so the bigger guys like Bison and Sagat will tower over other smaller characters in the line. The first two-pack assortments will consist of:

Super Street Fighter IV 2 pack- Modern Figures
- Abel VS Guile
- El Fuerte VS Seth

Street Fighter 2 pack- Classic Figures
- M Bison VS Akuma
- Ryu VS Sagat

I'm totally going for the 3.75"-ers. Marvel vs. Capcom and Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe for the win.

I thought it was going to be new news not the same stuff we've known since Sunday.. Anyways those were just mock-ups and doesn't necessarily means we're getting those characters or in those scales necessarily, we just know its 3.75 with some 6".

Anyways I have hope for the line, while Jazwares earlier MK figures were terrible, their Sonic ones are great and they seem to be listening to fans. They also had some terrible SF figures but they just used the sculpts of the awesome SOTA SF figures and took off articulation/paint to make them cheap instead of the collectors prices that SOTA sold theirs for. This isn't the first time SF and MK have 3.75 figures and by the same company, GI Joe had those terrible toylines in the mid/early 90s. I was a huge fan of both games and I could never get myself to buy them.

Anyways counting collectors prefer the classic versions I don't get why those are the 6" scale which fans would prefer. I prefer the newer versions and 3.75 scale but oh well we'll see when they actually show off prototypes, maybe at SDCC.

Wow nice paint swap job. I also love how the promo pics show awesome artwork from the game. Then you see the things and they look no better then the MK figures from the 90s.

Only saw these yesterday and I agree with everyone here. This is probably the most dissapointed I have been in a toyline since... well probably ever.

When I heard these were coming out I was willing to shell out some good money for a decent sub zero made to modern collecting standards and possibly for a few of the MK3 characters.... but this is just one big huge let down.

Hopefully NECA or Sideshow release a decent statue at the very least. I have been itching for more Mortal-Kombatal goodness since I layed hands on MK9.

I can see the hate for the six-inchers, but what's the problem with the classic figs? They pretty much are identical to their MK3 era incarnations.

They look terrible, the fact that they're better than the GI Joe figures does not make them good. ugh, I really thought Jazzwares was going to get it right. The six inchers are beyond terrible and no better than the crap they released in the mid 2000's when they had the license, and the 3.75" ones look "ok" but thats about it, they are far from something that jumped at me... which is sad counting they only needed two molds and the rest are all repaints... I don't even want to know what their Street Fighter figures look like, looks like I'll be keeping my SOTA figures.

Well to be honest the cyber ninjas aren't that bad. But the biggest problem is with Scorpion, Reptile and Ermac who in my opinion have disproportionate and awkward looking shoulders. And I'm not a fan of the closed fists or choice of paint either... but that's just me.

The ninjas alone kill this line for me since these were the figures I was wanting to get the most, and others to supplement them.

I saw the unpainted, unarticulated sculpts of the SF figures (7 in total) at Toy Fair this year. I had to double check that they were Jazwares, as the detail level was close to or even better than SOTA's figures (although a different, more realistic style). The only nitpick I had were Ryu & Ken's heads were a little large, and didn't really fit with the look of the line (although they weren't final sculpts). There seemed to be good scale within the line - Chun Li was around 3.5", Sagat was around 4.5". They seemed, stylewise, to be a mixture of the classic SFII looks and SFIV.

Jazwares has a habit of having decent-to-good sculpts/mock-ups, but the problem comes when they start final production. They cut corners and knock down the quality seen in their sculpts.

Just got an e-mail from Big Bad Toy Store saying that 4 inch Raiden has been canceled.

Brodie

Fantastic. Jazwares hits another one out of the park. Fantastic that they cancel the character who was essentially the main character in MK9.

The robots in MK are the worst characters of all, so i don't get they're making them into toys. The Ninjas on the other hand are the best characters.

Is anyone really a fan of Cyrax/Sektor/robot Smoke?

Brodie
07-09-2011, 11:48 AM
I really liked the Sub-Zero Cyborg. I think they relate best to toys, being more intricate/toy-like. But these designs suck.

As far as canceling the Raiden...Isn't Raiden the SDCC exclusive? Is that cancelled too?

Ninjinister
07-09-2011, 12:17 PM
It's just the 4 inch Raiden that's canceled. The 6 inch (+ SDCC exclusive) are still on track.

I'll be honest, when I say that I don't really like them... don't get me wrong, I love MK. I guess I've been spoiled with wonderfully detailed figures by companies like NECA, McFarlane, etc, so much so that it disappoints me when I see figures that just aren't as great as they could've & should've been. :ohwell:

Brodie

I saw the 6 inch ones in a store today. They aren't terrible, Sub-Zero and Scorpion look pretty good (and different). But not to the level that I imagine Neca could have done.

Jester

Is Jazwares good at releasing more than a wave or 2 before they throw in the towel like NECA seems to? It's kinda a "6 on one hand 1/2 a dozen on the other" deal.

Brodie
07-09-2011, 10:54 PM
I'd say they're worse.

Wow...that's not good.

I'm wondering what the Street Fighter figs will look like. They can't be worse than the Hasbro ones. My Chun-Li is a man.

Brodie

Have you seen their previous Street Fighter figures? Not good.

Considering that figure's 17 years old... But yeah, I hated it when it came out. Still, considering I got most of those GI Joe SFII figures for nothing courtesy of Hasbro, I don't think I have grounds for complaint.

The JW Chunners looked pretty good - not as thick as her SFIV look, but not as skinny as the SOTA figure. She had a lot of sculpted detail too, although that'll probably get smoothed out in the manufacturing process.

It's my understanding that the 3 3/4" Raiden figure's just been pushed back, rather than being totally cancelled...

I saw them too. I couldn't help laughing at the "15 points of Articulation!" sticker on the package.

As if that's something to brag about.

Maybe they look better in person? They look terrible though, I had faith in Jazzwwarez I didn't think the previous stuff they had done with Megaman was as bad as people said but the MK figures were terrible and these look really bad. I guess we haven't seen the MK 3 3/4 figures yet but I hold no hope. I really wanted 3 3/4 SF and MK figures but at t this point I think I rather buy the GI Joe MK/SF figures... At least I still have my SOTA SF figures, I regret not getting more of them more, I could have had the whole collection but I didn't because not all the characters were P1 colors, apparently they all go for a lot now...

Brodie

UGH, on second look I hadn't initially noticed the awful ab joint on some of them, specifically ryu and ken. It goes through the shirt? Come the **** on. What year is it?
