    Damn, I just found out that Klassic Sub Zero from Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 isn't even Bi-Han, it's just some random guy!

    I was gonna get masked Sub Zero, paint him Royal blue, and give him his scar so he can be Kuai Luiang. Note that he never actually wears light blue. That was Bi Han's thing.

    Wait what? When did they retconned that?

    Quick deep dove says that the creators once tweeted that he was Bi Han/Noob. Looks like a bunch of random messes happened with Noob from MK2 until he was fleshed out in MK Letters. Noob at one point was a pallet swap of Kano so yeah there's that

    That ending is weirdly ambiguous because it does say that it's not Bi-Han or Kuai Liang. BUT, it also says that he's a warrior who's been missing since a previous tournament and will return in the next. We can probably ignore the latter part, but his identity being someone from the previous tournament is the important part. However, they haven't done anything with this "third Sub-Zero" since that time. That said you've also got one of the creators, Tobias, tweeting when asked about it that it was indeed Bi-Han. I think the real issue here is that he was an unimportant secret character with no real thought put into him... just like every other secret character before him... and since he never showed up again we've never seen his story or character actually be expanded upon.

    Hey how do the SOTA toys scale with the Storm Collectibles ones? I'm considering getting the Ryu and have the SOTA Ken.

    I'm pretty sure the SOTA figures are smaller all around

    SOTA figures are 6" scale and Storm Collectibles are 7". You could probably fudge in some of the larger characters from Storm with the SOTA stuff, but Storm Ryu wouldn't look right next to SOTA Ken.
