Raiden action figure glows in the dark but not much else

San Diego Comic Con is almost here, which means all kinds of interesting news, previews and goodies. If you are a Mortal Kombat fan, and also enjoy collecting action figures, you may be interested to know there is a new character coming out for SDCC. "Lightning Fury Raiden" will be available exclusively during the convention at the Entertainment Earth booth as well as the Toys"R"Us SDCC page, starting on July 21, the same day that doors open for the Con.

Raiden, who stands six inches tall, is done in clear plastic and covered with lightning bolts. He also glows in the dark. I guess anything that glows in the dark is cool, but I would probably be more impressed if I were six. Mortal Kombat was one of the first fighting games I ever played, and I have a special place in my heart for the franchise so maybe I am a little biased. I would have liked to see something slightly less gimmicky for the thunder god though.
