There's that terrifying Akuma bust I've always wanted
Connoisseurs of gigantic figures, this part of NYCC is for you! Pop Culture Shock is all about going big. For starters you can see their life size Akuma bust. It's cool but also a bit creepy thanks to the stylized face. Upon reflection, I think I prefer a smaller scale when it comes to Akuma.
Street Fighter III is represented by Alex. Pop Culture Shock's range consists of many shirtless muscular dudes, and Alex isn't my favorite as I'm not a big SFIII fan. I am fond of the Akuma vs. Gouken figure, which made another appearance (will be out later this year for $330). The dynamic pose and epic story behind the battle make it very appealing.
Mortal Kombat fans have some tasty morsels to nibble on. First up is an enormous figure of Goro, who looks quite intimidating! Even at 1/4 scale it looks like he could beat me to a pulp. He's set for a Q2 2014 release for $450. Two other iconic MK characters got the polystone treatment: Sub-Zero in his Ultimate MK3 garb, and Shao Kahn.
Masters of the Universe has shown enduring popularity, and Pop Culture Shock is getting in on the action. You've seen the He-Man figure and Skeletor bust. They also had a Beastman figure on display, set for Q2 2014.
The last few items on display are from Bravest Warriors and Judge Death. Bravest Warriors is an online cartoon from the creator of Adventure Time, and the figures here show off the cute style well. The 1/4-scale Judge Death figure is still looking good - very morbid and creepy.
All of these figures are impressive, but I think only the little Bravest Warriors ones are in my price range. When you mix large scales with polystone, the inevitable results are sky-high prices.
