Savagery is no match for skill
– Sub-Zero Mortal Kombat 11
Once out of the box, you really notice the quality of this PVC statue and the only setup you need to do is to install his right arm and once you pop that back into statue, Sub-Zero is ready for display!
The highlight of statue is definitely the high quality sculpt which really brings Sub-Zero to life, particularly his deadly stare as he summons his frost powers. While only his eyes are visible, the attention to detail is fantastic, including the muscular definition on his arms, the fabric of his costume and the realistic ice effects, not to mention perfect colouring.
Additionally there is a broken piece of rock that has been shattered by Sub Zero that again, looks quite realistic. All in all, this sculpt by Salvador Gomes really brings this Mortal Kombat character to life.
A lesson in failure.
Sub-Zero, Mortal Kombat 11
As you can see, the detail is fantastic and while the clothing is made from PVC it looks like real material.
