The evolution of Mortal Kombat's Shang Tsung and Reptile

Gamesradar: "19 years of shapeshifting and face-changing from Mortal Kombat's resident wizard and lizard.

As far as we’re concerned, Mortal Kombat still hasn’t topped its original villains: the millennia-old shapeshifter Shang Tsung, the four-armed nightmare named Goro, and Shang Tsung’s creepy little helper-ninja, Reptile. And as luck would have it, all three are about to be shoved back into the limelight next week, when the new Mortal Kombat rewinds the series’ clock back to its beginning.

Just in general, all of the Ninja designs past MK4 have been fucking horrendous, including the ones in this MK game.

Though they don't need to be pallette swapped like back in the MK2 days, I definitely think all of the Ninjas need to have similar outfits again because as of now only Subzero looks SLIGHTLY like his past incarnations.

Reptile does look ridiculous...Thats why you should get his old ninja suit pre-order bonus so you dont have to look at that ugly mug the whole time.

They really should have just made him look like a green version of sub-zero and some crazy reptile eyes, maybe a tail or something rather than making him look like Rango.
