    A few Motaro photos of the actual prop used in the old school Mortal Kombat games were posted recently on the official Mortal Kombat Facebook page. Now, you either have 1 of 2 reactions when seeing this thing... 1 being "cool" and the 2nd being "I want it!". For those that went with #2, you should know that there is a good chance of Syco Collectibles creating this figure in a statue form(yes, really!), but for now, enjoy the pictures!

    I'd hate to tell you...
    But I think it's what's left of Kratos' lone MK appearance.

  10. My favoutire boss in MK. Choke punch ftw
  11. I think the most amazing thing about this statue is the fact that it has survived and resurfaced now. You'd think stuff like this would have been lost over the years but obviously someone was dedicated enough to keep it and keep it in good condition aswell.

    Motaro is my favorite sub boss and the most memorable of Mortal Kombat, there were tons of Onis, Fire Elementals and Shokans, but there is only one Centaur general, who breaks all rules and you truly cannot fight they way you fight everyone else.

    Yeah, actually always thought Motaro was really crap, honestly. I preferred MK2 kintaro, was so intimidating and hard as fuck to beat at that. Motaro was a walk over and just annoying. Upper cut through the ceiling > choke punch
