After the first Mortal Kombat game became a cultural phenomenon, Midway knew they had to up the ante for it’s eagerly anticipated follow-up. The mythology they created had resulted in many dynamic characters, but none intrigued gamers more than their Blue and Yellow Ninjas.
One thing was clear. Mortal Kombat II needed more where Scorpion and Sub-Zero came from.
And so it was that in 1993 millions of swooning fans were introduced to the their female counterparts, Kitana, Princess of Edenia, and Mileena, her evil twin.
John Tobias and Ed Boon had done it again.
Relying on her trademark Steel Fans in battle, Kitana’s deadly combos were quickly mastered by top tournament players, her airborne moves and melee throws establishing her as one of the top kombatants in the game.
At 10,000 years old, Princess Kitana looks at least 1/500 her age, but she’s much more than just her beauty. As Shao Kahn’s stepdaughter, she has been a key figure in Netherrealm’s overarching storyline from her debut, a leader charismatic enough to sway both Goro and Sindel to her cause and an army to follow her through the hell of Outworld.
PCS is proud to present it’s 1:3 scale mixed media statues of Princess Kitana
No expense is spared on the PCS third scale line, and this is no exception.
Based on her appearance in 2011’s Mortal Kombat 9, Kitana’s cerulean-colored cropped bustier is laced together with real cross strings, hand-stiched and fitted like her long flowing loincloth, with a choice of masked and unmasked heads, each with dangling earrings. Holding her distinct deadly blue steel fans, her royal countenance lords over a display base modeled on her lush, idyllic Edenian homeworld, complete with translucent water.
She will only be available for purchase through popcultureshocktoys.com, with no regular retail edition.

Daniel Pickett
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.
