According to Raving Toy Maniac
, Infinite Concepts
is developing a set of action figures based on Mortal Kombat characters. Here is some information from RTM.
The latest innovation is the Center of Gravity Joint Integrity Technology, which enables these amazingly articulated figures to pose and balance like the human form. Mortal Kombat, with it's strong martial arts themes and colorful characters, was the perfect license to use with these new action figure body types.
The first assortment, consisting of Lui Kang, Shang Tsung, Mileena, Sonya Blade, SubZero and Scorpion, is expected to debut in late summer/early fall. The male characters are 8-1/2" high, and the females measure in at 7-1/2". The female figures will feature a revolutionary new design for the hip joint allowing for both realism and flexability unlike any seen in a female action figure to date.
Fans of Mortal Kombat can look forward to future figures in the line as well, possibly by years end or early 2000. Plans for the second series are tentative at this early stage but top contenders include Kitana, Jax, Rayden and the monstrous half-dragon, Goro!
