Mortal Kombat's Goro, actual size


On screen, Mortal Kombat's top-knotted, four-armed Goro was a menacing, scary figure, towering over our hapless Sub-Zeros and Raidens. This vintage picture from Mortal Kombat creator Ed Boon's Twitter, reveals that, in real life, Goro was just a li'l guy.

Of course, we knew the stop-motion model for the character wouldn't be fully human-sized, because that would be a ridiculous expense and effort for absolutely no payoff. But we're still delighted to see the actual sculpture used in the game, in all its diminutive glory. We also like how "homemade" the studio looks -- actual Mortal Kombat images were lit by a desk lamp taped to a cookie tin taped to some other stuff.
