SUB-ZERO

Lifesize Bust

“This fight will be your last!”

In 2013, Pop Culture Shock Collectibles released their very first 1:1 scale bust, the award-winning Sub-Zero, as he appeared in Mortal Kombat (2011).
Three years later, we will up the stakes yet again with our next generation of life-sized pieces, and who better to slide-kick things off than Kuai Liang, as he now appears in Mortal Kombat X !
Freed of Quan Chi’s manipulations, Sub-Zero has ended his epic feud with Scorpion and become Grandmaster of the Lin Kuei, leading his warriors into battle against the forces of Outworld with a functional new look that reflects his restored humanity.
“Going into that first meeting at Warner Bros, I was a little apprehensive,” Jerry Macaluso, President of Pop Culture Shock, tells us. “Sub-Zero’s design in Mortal Kombat 9 was just about perfect, and I wasn’t sure it could be improved upon. It took all of 5 minutes to assuage any doubts, and I think I was already envisioning this piece in the elevator back down to the car. He had some big 1:1 scale boots to fill.”

Standing 30″ (76cm) tall , the Mortal Kombat X SUB-ZERO Lifesize Bust is created using both traditional hand sculpting as well as the actual 3D in-game files. This towering collectible comes on a museum-style pedestal base, giving Sub-Zero a frosty translucent iceberg to rest upon.

The PCS ‘Cryomancer’ Exclusive features glowing LED eyes and mask elements. This incredible collectibles LEDs,  accurately matches the frost blue of his game model.

Individually painted and finished with PCS’ handcrafted quality and attention to detail, all eyes will be drawn to him, the instant centerpiece of any collection. No mere Sub-Zero piece, he can only be called the Absolute Sub-Zero.

Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Time.com, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post, CNN.com, AssociatedPress.com Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
