Baraka was introduced as a mean, unforgiving, and unpredictable warrior in service of Outworld emperor Shao Kahn in Mortal Kombat II. He belongs to a race of nomadic mutants called Tarkata, a crossbreed between vile Netherealm demons and denizens of Outworld, apparently populating the vast wastelands of Outworld. Baraka, like most other members of his race, possesses long blades extending from his forearms. Although he has had numerous incursions with the Earthrealm warriors, he appears not to have any particular rivalry or hatred towards Earth or its inhabitants. A loyal warrior, he fights for those whom he calls "master".

This is a remake of my original fig.

Enjoy.

Baraka has a special place in my heart as he and I both train in Pencak Silat. This is a good update on your old fig, especially the face, though I am unsure on the color choice. Baraka always seemed more "pasty" to me. Perhaps that was just my screen though.

Also, this fig answers a question I was meaning to ask about whether the bayonets fit on minifig arms/wrists. How well do they fit though, connection/stability wise?

I chose the this flesh tone because in the classic games his tone was more orangy even though later installments made him paler.

As for the blades they suck at attachment. I had to shave them down to fit between the hand and arm.

I hope I did not offend with my first post. I think it is a good looking fig, it's just been some time since I have played the old games and got used to the pale Baraka. As I have said before, I am quite a fan of your figs and especially your MK figs.

Sad to hear the bayonets require modifications to work. Such is life I suppose.

No offense taken. :D

And thanks. I am going through all of them again. Most of them don't need updates, but others do.

I just played it tonight at a buddies house and I was VERY impressed! both by the graphics and how traditional it still was when it came to the moves and the overall feel :D

Cant wait to see the rest!
