Whaddya think? Complaints from offended parents hit home? As if the game is even designed for kids, but whatever.

A little while back, DualShockers found a beautiful figure of the Sorceress in Dragon's Crown ; it was first unveiled at an art exhibition in Tokyo. You can see pictures of the pretty little figurine through the link, but now the site is reporting that Japanese manufacturer Alphamax has stopped selling the item. Orders aren't being filled.

There's a mysterious notice that says all orders have been halted for "various reasons." The retailer apologizes but doesn't offer any details beyond that. So, what's the deal? Has this 1/8 scale statue pissed off the wrong people? It was bound to happen. The Sorceress really is ridiculously top-heavy, to the point where it's downright comical. But it is comical, yes? The developers mean no offense, certainly.

Still, there has to be a reason for Alphamax's message. And if the figure had simply been out of stock, they would've said that. Instead, there are "various reasons" why you can't get one. Hmm…

"Girl Gamers" are offended and think that guys think they need to look like the females in the game.

Couldn't be that, there are FAR more offensive Japanese figurines out there. Stuff that would be downright illegal here.

Maybe due to the proportions of the figure they could not get it to stay upright, even with a large base. That would be a hilarious reason.

Hmmm, probably just ran out of stocks out of stocks but you'll never know unless they said it themselves.

because it's a offensive, unrealistically proportioned character designed by a moron who doesn't know what real anatomy is… hope they don't make anymore statues or copies of the stupid game with,horrible character designs… jut because some guys want girls who may look like that(not that that's possible considering how the character is proportioned), doesn't mean we all do.

It's amazing how often righteous statements epitomize blatant ignorance.

This is exactly the argument the Nazis made against Picasso and Cubism to back up their claims of racial superiority, that the artists must be mentally ill, their creations prove they are subhuman and their culture is somehow inferior.

Unrealistically proportioned… Seriously? It's just a cartoon video game character. Who cares?

Nobody ever cares when a cartoon character has a comically oversized head, or feet, or hands, or really any part of the anatomy that isn't boobs and/or butt.

Can you imagine how watered down and boring this entire entertainment medium would become if all characters had to be designed as proportionally accurate human facsimile's? Just to avoid offending righteous prudes.

Yeah GAMER4LIFEXXX *doesn't mean we all do* THAT'S WHY YOU DON'T HAVE TO BUY THE GAME GENIUS.

Who ever forced you to get that? NO ONE. Who ever said we want girls to look like that? NO ONE. It's all in your head of *trying to look pretty for the ladies and making no sense*

Did you also notice in that game that Guys are OVERLY MUSCULAR AND BADASS. Do we feel bad? NO. We don't give a crap and it should be the same for the girls if you *white knights* werent trying to get some PU**Y because that's the only way you know how to!
