McFarlane Mortal Kombat "Bloody" Variants of Spawn, Baraka, Raiden and Sub-Zero

The four new McFarlane Mortal Kombat "bloody" figure variants have gone up for pre-order on Amazon both in the US and here in the UK.


Each figure is a repaint of an existing release, representing variant skins in Mortal Kombat 11. They had all been previously announced during Comic Con @ Home week - except the Frozen Over Sub-Zero who had been found at numerous retailers in the US, but never confirmed until today.


Arriving first on the 30th of October will be Bloody Spawn in his Blood Feud Hunter Skin and Baraka in his Horkata Skin. They will be followed on the 20th of November by Bloody Raiden in his Merciless Guardian Skin and Sub-Zero in the Frozen Over Skin.

In the subsequent games, the younger brother of Sub-Zero, remained as Sub-Zero, while the older brother became the wraith Noob Saibot.

About Me : As a child of the 70's and 80's I grew up in a golden age for action figures and in my youth bought and sold myself through collections of Star Wars, G.I. Joe (Action Force) and M.A.S.K. while also dabbling in He-Man, Transformers and Ghostbusters. Roll forward and I am now reliving that Youth with the action figures of today and am a collector and fan of the larger 6-8 inch figures from my favourite movie and TV licences - including the ones mentioned above, but also the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Doctor Who and the Aliens. I launched The Mephitsu Archives in 2015 with a view of creating a UK focused site or these figures where fans can pick up the latest action figure news, read reviews and get information on where to buy their figures and what is currently on store shelves. I hope I am delivering that to you guys...
