Latest posts by Caroline Lambert (see all)

Are you ready to go when you hear “fight,” or will it end with an “oh, no!” Don’t worry, I’ll show you the 10 Ultimate Mortal Kombat Toys to help you defeat any toy or MK obsession. Mortal Kombat toys are abundant, collectible, and incredible to display. Each one has something good and bad about it.

Mortal Kombat toys are themed merchandise any fan of action figures, fighting, or the MK brand must-own. Playing with them is one way to go, but displaying them in battles is the ultimate glory for fans. Mortal Kombat toys aren’t suitable for kids, and they’re certainly not for the faint-hearted. Let’s find some big boy toys now.

First Kick’s First

I’m a massive fan of Mortal Kombat, and I love all things toys, action figures, and collectibles. Mortal Kombat was one of the first legendary arcade games I genuinely wasted all my allowance on in the 1990s. I was a girl who showed the boys how to end every opponent in my way.

After 13 years in the collectible business, I suppose I have a reason to be so passionate about brand toys like Mortal Kombat. It’s just that there are so many available. I found a simple reason to narrow my options. My chosen toys must be action figures representing my favorite fighters in attack positions.

I wouldn’t say I like displaying toys in a boring way. I have favorites from the first arcade game to the latest Mortal Kombat version. I also include villains because it helps my unique displays. I’ll even share my weird and wonderful display idea, and you can judge whether I’m as mad as a hatter or not.

If you want to knock your Mortal Kombat merch opponents down, take a look at my top ten picks from the evolving versions since 1992. You might love the battle scenes you can create as much as I do. Mine starts with the best fighter to grace MK with the Funko Pop Mortal Kombat Raiden Action Figure.

Knock-Out Advice for Mortal Kombat Toys

Mortal Kombat was an arcade game intended to end the likes of Street Fighter in 1992. I remember pushing that button so hard that it nearly broke to get my combos in before my opponent could touch me. Honestly, I was pretty good at Mortal Kombat in the arcades. It’s also evolved so much over the last three decades.

Mortal Kombat toys have an advantage over many other toys because they’re action figures. Articulated action figures can strike different attack positions. You can create a lively display of your MK action figures if you choose the right ones. I love figures with high-end articulation to create battle scenes.

Allow your action figures to tell a story, one that reminds you of your favorite battles, fighters, or villains. I create unusual displays with my MK merchandise because boring isn’t my middle name. Stack cascading shelves against a wall with enough space on each frame for two fighters.

You can have a lot of fun with Mortal Kombat toys or action figures because of what they represent. Place your favorite fighters against each other in a battle royale. Step it up a notch by collecting action figures from different game versions. Cascade the battle scenes by descending the game versions.

Choosing the Best Mortal Kombat Toys

I’m as crazy as Jax from the original Mortal Kombat arcade game. My mind can sway side to side as much as he did on the battlefield. It’s why I must limit myself to only a few Mortal Kombat toys. Otherwise, I’d go wild and buy everything. I’ve narrowed my Mortal Kombat toy wishlist with three factors:

  1. I want action figures or figure toys because it’s a fighting game, after all.
  2. I also want the figures to be in action positions similar to their game poses.
  3. I want the most popular and memorable characters from the old arcade game to the newest versions.

The third factor is subjective. You might have characters you love more than mine, and that’s okay. I’ll try to cover the best of the best characters through the decades.

Ultimate Mortal Kombat Toys: The Best Fighters

I promised ten notable fighters, and I’ll deliver them! Some fighters classically connect to the theme. You can never replace the originals from the arcade games, and you don’t want to omit the legends of the new games. Anyway, let me share my must-own Mortal Kombat action figures before getting knocked out.

The Funko Pop Mortal Kombat Raiden Action Figure strikes fear into anyone who sees this gorgeous figure. Even the eyes show the electric power of my ultimate fighter from the game.

Best Mortal Kombat Kitana Action Figure

There are fantastic female fighters from the Mortal Kombat range. The Funko Pop Kitana Mortal Kombat Figure is a feminine entry to my list. I love Kitana because she’s a royal from Edenia, who won’t allow her status to deter her passion for seeking blood. I also love her weapons, a pair of steel fans. It’s so Eastern like Kitana.

Mortal Kombat Quan Chi Action Figure

The Mortal Kombat Quan Chi Action Figure is necromancing hypnosis for any MK figure collector. I have a thing for magic, necromancy, and everything unexplained.

Best Mortal Kombat Kabal Action Figure

Mortal Kombat Kabal Action Figure

The Mortal Kombat Kabal Action Figure looks like the kind of fighter you’d see if you woke up in an alley.

Best Mortal Kombat Shao Kahn Figure

Mortal Kombat Shao Kahn Figure

The Mortal Kombat Shao Kahn Figure wraps up the villains of my MK favorites. He’s a mighty beast who’s also the god of thunder, almost complementing the god of lightning, Raiden.

Best Mortal Kombat Mileena Figure

Funko Pop Mortal Kombat Mileena Action Figure

I love Mortal Kombat toy collections because every fighter character has an incredible back story. The Funko Pop Mortal Kombat Mileena Action Figure is a must-have if you buy the Kitana action figure. She’s the clone of Princess Kitana, created with the blood of the Tarkatan species.

Best Mortal Kombat The Joker Action Figure

The Mortal Kombat 11 The Joker Action Figure wraps my favorites up perfectly because it combines MK with Batman, two of my fave collectible toy brands. There’s no joke about how fabulous the action figure looks. The Joker also has a crazy look in his eyes, which suits the fighting spirit of the best characters in MK.
