I thought I would continue with Akira’s last post and feature some more standees which are never seen on eBay. The first standee is no other than the Original Mortal Kombat Goro Standee! This standee is not only awesome, it’s freakin’ HUGE! Check out the comparison with the CD at the bottom! What’s really cool about this auction is that this standee was sold on eBay a while back by the guy who played “Kano, Baraka, Kabal and Quan Chi”! The dudes name is Richard Divizio and we featured his auctions when he was doing his eBay run. I forgot if the auctions were for charity, or basically to help the guy out with his current situation, but he has some pretty cool items. Also attached with the auction is a letter from Richard outlining the history of the standee which is really cool! He also signed the paper so this is a real cool collectors piece, especially if you’re into MK.
“For sale is a over 7 foot tall store display for the original launch of Mortal Kombat on the SNES and Sega Genesis. Not only is this an incredibly rare piece, it was also owned by John Tobias, the creator of the series! I purchased this display from Richard Divizio, the original motion capture actor for Kano, Baraka, and many others characters. Included is a signed card from him explaining the origins of the display. Please note that I included a CD in the picture just to show how insanely big the display is. The display is quite heavy, so shipping will be somewhat pricey.”
