Back in my misspent youth I pumped no shortage of spare (and non-spare) change into arcade machines to play Mortal Kombat II. Jump forward more than a quarter-century and MK fans eager to empty their pockets faster than that can shell out for a new custom iPhone 12 Pro model.

Made by the company Caviar, the handset features an image of the Kunai harpoon weapon belonging to everyone’s favorite undead yellow-clad ninja Scorpion. It’s also emblazoned with the immortal words “Get over here!”

And all it will cost you is somewhere north of $6,140.

Flawless victory

As Caviar notes in its press material:

“The case of the smartphone is made of ultra-strong titanium with a golden ultra-strong PVD coating, which is used to cover luxury Swiss watches. The phone is decorated with inserts of black G-10 – a multi-layer material based on epoxy resin and fiberglass, used in the manufacture of knives. This model looks brutal and luxurious at the same time.”

Caviar created the Mortal Kombat iPhone to mark the impending release of the new movie. It is a limited edition of just 99 pieces in total. Prices start at $6,140 for a 128GB iPhone 12 Pro. The 512GB iPhone 12 Pro Max will set you back an eye-watering $7,370. If you could get four games on Mortal Kombat for a dollar back in the day that’s, well, a whole lot of gameplay you could get for the same price. More than enough to master the Fatality of every single character.

Each Caviar iPhone comes in a custom box. The company also offers the ability to further customize the handsets to user specifications if they so wish.
