We’ve covered Dragon’s Crown before with their unique art style that may offend but which has managed to sell out massively in Japan so at least the developers know who their target market is.

But in a surprising turn of events it appears that the statuette for the Sorceress has been pulled from shelves with no solid reason being given.

First up let’s take a look at what the statuette looks like

Besides the obvious it’s quite clear that the statuette has some incredible attention to detail and would very likely be a great addition to anyone’s collection.

But on the official website the following news was posted

”I was allowed to notice is “Sorceress,” but, I will stop the order once by various reasons. I am really sorry, but thanking you in advance.”

Thanks Google.. that makes no sense. So we don’t actually know if the statuette was pulled due to complaints, bad manufacturing or even if the retailer didn’t have the rights to sell it?

I’m not a collector of these things but I do know a few people who are – and now that it’s been pulled you know the price has sky rocketed for any that exist in the market.

Thanks to dualshockers for the pictures. On that note, Dragon’s Crown has finally been given a European release date, and will be available on October 11.

I'm cranky, arrogant and ever so amazingly annoying but when you get to know me you will also realise I'm honest and incredibly good at describing myself... now pass me that beer

            s??qooq

          • John ain’t got time to bleed

            I see she comes with a cane and Bazookas

          • Sageville

            The Calculator Nazis say it’s factored as 55378008 not 5318008

            …at least I remember some calculator thing with those numbers.

          • John ain’t got time to bleed

            Boobless? Good heavens man, do you not see the pictures in the article?

          • Sageville

            Wonder-bra?

        • Unavengedavo

          I wonder what her favourite swimming stroke is… Butterfly perhaps?

          • Gustav Willem Diedericks

            Naw, man. Breaststroke.

        • Unavengedavo

          I wonder what her favourite swimming stroke is… Butterfly perhaps?

  • Argentil

    Having played 20 hours of online co-op Dragon’s Crown, I have seen ONE player with a sorceress. She’s really offputting to play. Roughly: 20% Archer, 30% Warrior, 5% Viking, 5% Sorc 30% Amazon and 10% Wizard.

    • Umar Kiiroi Senk?

      She looked like a decent character, some nice skills, though looks like a support character

      • Argentil

        Have you seen her sprint and knockdown animations? They’re absurd. She’ll be my last character I play as for the plat.

    • Sageville

      Oh wow, it’s a game too!

      • Umar Kiiroi Senk?

        And a good one at that :)

  • Mossel

    Shouldn’t her nipples have started showing already? I mean, look at it. It will literally be under the boobs pointing downwards…

    • Argentil

      Because the 90% of the breast surrounding the nipple is safe, and ‘tasteful’ whereas the nipple itself is profane and lewd. Apparently.

      • RinceThisandholiday

        What you said.

  • Umar Kiiroi Senk?

    Not sure exactly why it was pulled. Alphamax usually makes these types of statues….Maybe too much controversy surrounding this game and this character…a shame, what a beautifully detailed statue

    • Wtf101

      It is, isn’t it? I love collecting stuff like this. Would not have mind having this one on the shelf.

      • Umar Kiiroi Senk?

        Seriously, that thing is gorgeous! eBay is gonna be booming for this thing. I don’t think my wife would approve of this statue though lol

  • Zoe

    Poor girl, her back must really hurt

    • Hammersteyn

      I’m sure she has a spell for that.

      • Sageville

        Win-boobius-leviosa!

        • Sir Rants-a-Lot Llew

          I was gonna say a feather spell but you just won the internet

    • Umar Kiiroi Senk?

      Yup, you start the game with 90% equip weight .. you can only carry one extra potion

  • Hammersteyn

    When she went to witch school I bet she majored in mind control and hypnotism.

  • John ain’t got time to bleed

    I really do not get the obsession with large breasts

    • http://www.twitter.com/WobblyOnion Exalted Overlord Geoffrey Tim

      Nope; me neither.

      • John ain’t got time to bleed

        Please don’t repeat this with ION. I’m having a nice day so far.

    • Sageville

      More than a metric handfull is just a waste, the rest just spills into the armpit area.

      • Slade Boender

        hahahahahaha. Your musings kill me dude. Bloody brilliant.

  • John ain’t got time to bleed

    I really do not get the obsession with large breasts

  • loftie

    fark me, I so want one!

  • RinceThisandholiday

    I wonder if Enix pulled it due to direct competition with their new and MOAR improved lightning. Those Japs, such kidders…

  • Daniel Keevy

    You have to wonder where the counter balance is. Or is there a mini stand in the back?

  • Lardus-Wolverine

    The statuette was defective – no nips…manufacturing error!

  • Christopher Shafer

    Naturally, it’s because her boobs are too small.

  • Steve

    Madness…
