MOTU minis subs now in limbo

MinisThe Matty Collector subscription for the MOTU minis fell far short of its November 25th goal, and was only at 40% a few hours from closing. At this point fans have been left to speculate as to whether the goal will be waved and Mattel will attempt to make up the difference by making “day of” sales outside of subs.

The alternative is to cancel the line and absorb the cost of the molds and design / sculpting that went into making the promotional prototypes. Until we get an announcement from Matty Collector these little guys stay in limbo.

Sorceress Statue pose revealed

pcs_sorceress_teaser_full[1]Coming soon from Jerry Macaluso and the rest of the team at Pop Culture Shock (PCS) is The Sorceress. Jerry just revealed in the PCS newsletter, the pose that PCS has chosen and it’s awesome. The base is made up of some curious looking skull ornaments. These are pictured inside Greyskull in the Filmation cartoon though they aren’t iconic by any stretch.

Given that it’d be impractical to make the Greyskul  l throne the base (just far too large) it seems that PCS did their homework and selected these guys instead.

This looks like a wonderful sculpt. As usual the PCS statues are done in Premium Format at 1:4 scale.
