Reptile is a green garbed, humanoid reptilian creature that embodies the archetype of the unhappy underling. Said to be physically hideous and repulsive, he is renowned for his great stealth and unquestioning loyalty. Unlike many other henchmen, Reptile does not strive for power. He is caught in a delusional state of mind, obsessed with finding the last remaining member of his race, or freeing his homeworld of Zaterra from Outworld's grasp. Thus, he always remains loyal to Shao Kahn, only obeying other masters to survive and reach his goal of returning Zaterra to its former glory. While well-meaning and sincere, his obsession is so important to him that it causes him temporary fits of insanity.
Storm has been putting out high quality Mortal Kombat figures for a while now. One of the newer ones is Reptile which I picked up from Big Bad Toy Store. Side note Big Bad stocks the entire line, as well as every other toy you could imagine.
Reptile comes with a wide variety of I interchangeable body parts. As you can see in the photo he has 6 different hands. A long green acid blob, 2 green acids you can place in his hand, a blood soaked mask, a Reptile head, and yes, even a giant long tongue.
It's quiet the display piece. I popped for the blood soaked version which runs 54.99 so it definitely has the Mortal Kombat spirit going to it. I have to say it's the spitting (no pun intended) image of Reptile fro. The games
The one issue I have is the interchangeable hands. Most collector figures have the extra hand with simply an opening to put on the arm. This one is a bit odd. The arm peg comes off as well. So you have to pry the other hand out to place the new one in to then again place the peg back in the hand. It sure why, but it makes the item a little less durable.
However this is a display piece. So parents if your thinking of buying this for your kids to play with you will be disappointed. The arms and legs fall off easily, so any rough housing with other figures will cause it to simply fall apart.
Now this is definitely a piece for collectors. It's sculpted to perfection and it has so many extra limbs you can set it up in a variety of ways. It's fully articulated so the display possibilities are endless.
If your a toy collector or a Mortal Kombat fan this is a great piece to display next to your PS4 or Xbox one. It looks great on mine. And while your at it visit Big Bad Toy Store to check out all the items they have to offer. Fast shipping and great prices make it a one stop shop for collectors.
Overall 3.5 out of 5 Stars
