Sideshow and Iron Studios present the Raiden 1:10 Art Scale Statue from Mortal Kombat Klassic.
Based on original references from the game, this hand-painted polystone statue is limited edition!
With his enigmatic face, half hidden by the shadows of a traditional Chinese straw hat, his bright white eyes refer to his supernatural status as an elderly deity, despite his human appearance. Wearing a white ninja kimono with a blue waistcoat, black bands wrapped around his wrists and a flowing black band around his waist, translucent electric lightning effects come out of his hands.
Inspired by the look presented in the Mortal Kombat II game on a rustic altar base from the kingdom of Outworld, Raiden is presented with bones and chains at his feet and skulls carved in small columns around him. The dragon symbol of the ancient tournament is displayed on the front. Raiden adds to the already revealed fearsome villains Goro and Shao Kahn in the Mortal Kombat collection from Iron Studios, which promises to bring in the future other legendary figures from the cult series of fighting games created by Ed Boon and John Tobias.
Mortal Kombat is a martial arts tournament that takes place between different kingdoms or dimensions from generation to generation, and needs to be won 10 times in a row to guarantee the winner the chance to dominate the competition’s realm. Raiden is the protector of the earth plane and one of the few to appear in every game in the franchise. He often leads the forces of good against evil and plays an essential role in the series’ history and games. Raiden has many abilities such as teleportation and lightning control and because he is an ancestral god, even if his human form is destroyed, he can re-materialize later.

After about one year of waiting this 1/10 version of MK‘s thunder god arrived in flawless condition.
Classy costume, high level of detail with a clean portrait, a windy belt, translucent sparks and last but not least a modest but impactful base featuring real metal chains plus loose bloody corps parts support Raiden’s iconic pose.
The 3D print‘s quality is excellent giving his clothes a very gritty and rough appeal, well balanced by the clear and bright black-white-blue color contrast. Body and head and hat are one piece, so he will not loose any of these, unless a worthy combatant claims to challenge him. His left hand attaches firm and easily to his arm, while his left foot connects him smoothly to the temple floor. The whole diorama weighing only about 1,4 kg floats elegantly on a small or medium sized shelf.
Overall an excellent entry into Iron Studios outstanding collection of limited 1/10 scale statues. Their great artists and sculpture concepts deserve to shine in premium format.
