MOTU Action Vinyls - SORCERESS!

Masters of the Universe - Blind Box Vinyls - Sorceress - Loyal Subjects 2019

The Loyal Subjects made a really smart move by making their figures only semi-blindboxed. At an average MSRP over ten dollars, having a true blind assortment was problematic. I had personally decided to stop buying these figures altogether before they changed their marketing. Now only a select few (rare) characters are in blind boxes, while most of the characters (with common ratios) have revealed window boxes.  Despite how much I would have wanted Sorceress to complete my MOTU ladies trifecta, the idea of dropping $10-12 bucks for each attempt at a 1:24 character just pissed me off. I wasted a lot of money trying to get Cheetara a couple years ago and I was just done. But then I walked into Target and saw Sorceress just sitting there in a non-blind box. I'm not one for grudges so I didn't even hesitate before getting back on board. Now they just need to make their chases a little less rare. And of course give us more retro characters. Jem and Silverhawks would be awesome. Let's check out Sorceress!





























Sorceress comes with her signature falcon staff.











Time for some Comparison Pics!

  1. A blind box at that price point is not doable. Not sure why they thought that was a good idea. Good looking figure for it's type of sculpting. Good review.

    1. Yeah i'd be curious to hear how their sales changed after they adjusted their marketing strategy. I'll bet sales increased.
