    Crap, I've had that for years! :lolol 

    Didn't think he was worth that much.

    I also have Cyrax. He kicks ass, but has useless articulation.

    YOU WILL SELL ME THAT CYRAX!!!! lol Yeah Toy Island made also made a 12" version with the exact same articulation. Even more rare is the 12" red remold of Cyrax as Sektor. He comes with a missile like he shoots out in MK3, UMK3, and MK3.

    If anyone has some of the Jazawares figures that they have been thinking of parting with please contact me...

    You don't want mine. The crappy plastic they used turns dull and makes him look like a discolored, miss-matched banana. Also, his "skirt" is easily tear-able just by moving his hips forward. The upside is that he can actually hold his weapons.

    If I come across a carded one in my toy hunting travels, I'll pick it up for you.

    Also, that Shao Khan has a sculpted and painted face under his helmet, but the helmet is glued on so you can only catch a glimpse of it. His cape is removable. Also, the horns on his helmet(they are made of thin, flexible plastic) and his "skirt" can also be susceptible to tearing when moving his hips forward, so be careful with him.

    Really cool beans, I know the feeling! I'm actually a bit shocked that's the only Shao Kahn.

    I thought he had a fully sculpted face. I actually owned this once before, but it was tossed in the mass High School exodus... I wish I could have stopped my self from tossing certain things.

    Were you ever able to successfully remove his helmet without damaging either figure or helmet?

    When I said helmet, I was referring to Shao Khan, not Cyrax.

    Also, the final production figure of Cyrax, unlike his prototype figure, has had the dreadlocks on the back of his head shortened significantly.

    Back to Khan and his helmet, I WAS NOT able to remove his helmet. It's not a question of damaging the toy, it's a question of actually being able to remove the damned thing. Whatever glue they used to stick it on there stuck it pretty damn well. I'll try to find my old figure and see if I can make some progress with it. It would be neat to have a Shao Khan with a helmet accessory, since his cape is removable.

    Any luck getting that helmet off? I can't believe how strong the glue was used 15 years ago from a company that's gone belly up to my knowledge.
