I think you guys talking about “waist” and “hips” are nuts! Possibly fishing for reasons to talk yourself out of an extremely expensive piece?

It’s absolutely massive. And the sculpt of Kahn is 100% on point! The armor is also perfect.

The throne itself is very close to perfection. I would just like to see the footprint be extended a few inches so that his feet do not protrude off the side of the base.

Furthermore, given the measurements Jerry provided in the booth tour video, I stand corrected on my comparison to TOT in terms of size.

For Kahn fans it’s truly a magnificent day.

Bison should be so lucky!

I've come to the conclusion that convincing yourself not to buy a statue is at least 35% of statue collecting.

This would be an instant buy for me if I had the room for him. Space for all these 1/3 is becoming a huge problem.

I bought every MK 1/3 statue except for Goro. If I had room, I wouldn't definitely get them as well. The 1/4 versions of the bosses are good though too.

This came out of nowhere! It looks great, but I think they really release characters at odd times like this Kahn and the action Ken going up for PO right as the other versions are released in hand. I know different styles/scales blah blah but I think it would be better to space them out.

2 more mk coming in that raiden style fully sculpted. Wonder what will happen to classic?

I hope this guy is sold out people have been going on and on about him for years. Only 100 Es time for your Wallets to do the talking.

Also hope the kung Lao Choir is ready if he comes up for po.

Me I just want my classic Kitana black base to finish my female trilogy that would be amazing.

I just don't believe that Klassic style will catch attention in today's market. They have to make statues that appeal to a base
broader than those who still have the Klassics and are willing to continue the collection. Just not enough of those folks around.

The Raiden style with the black base swaps a la the SF Ultimates are likely the way forward

The last pure Klassics were the cyborgs so I think it's fairly self evident what happened to the Klassics.

'Reboot in more of an XM style' has been tossed around, so I would presume it IS the klassic line, moving forward.
