    MMM - From Pixels To Plastic's Rare Goro Statue

    After a few weeks off, Mortal Movie Monday (MMM) returns this week with a great new feature. This week our own forum member itobandito submitted a video he created. Ito works with Retroware TV and hosts this week's episode of their show From Pixels To Plastic where he discusses his ultra rare Goro statue that he found on eBay.

    The origins of the statue are unknown, but appears that it only was released to retail in Japan back in the early 1990s. There is no known place to get these easily, but there are likely some sitting around in someone's storage room right now. Yet you can find the very similar, yet unpainted, resin kit for around $65 on eBay. Check out the video below for more information.



    Thanks again goes out to itobandito for another great MMM submission. We at TRMK are always looking for great clips to showcase, so don't forget to suggest us a future video to be featured. Come back next Mortal Movie Monday for another Kompelling video.

    Re: MMM - From Pixels To Plastic's Rare Goro Statue

    they were over $300

    I went up to $175, because I do think the statue is worth it. Its totally bad ass.

    I'd pay up to $200 for the painted one, otherwise may get the model one and make it a project.

    175? Well if you're a fan of Goro I suppose. But I've never really liked him. Now if I could get an awesome MK3 or MKD Shao Kahn statuette...now that I'd pay 200 for.

    Re: MMM - From Pixels To Plastic's Rare Goro Statue

    For me its Scorpion or Raiden I'd fork bucks out over.
    Sig in reconstruction...


    Seriously, national sterotypes suck badly....

    Then again, being "emo" wasn't originally about being depressed all the time or wearing black, since "depression" isn't the only emotion. And nto all gays sound 'camp'. >_<

    But never mind that crap, my vampire dragon is awesome isn't it?

    Re: MMM - From Pixels To Plastic's Rare Goro Statue

    Well I've already got 3 great Scorpion and Sub-Zero figures. The MKSM ones were the best as far as I'm concerned, but I also have the old tiny looks-nothing-like-them MK1 versions and the MK3/annihilation movie versions.

    So I'd rather have Shao Kahn.
