Hyperchild posted the following about the canceled line for Mass Effect statues:
Bad news for all you Mass Effect statue collectors: Bioware has decided to end our production on future Mass Effect statues.
We thank all of you for your support and dedication on our Commander Shepard statue, we did well enough with the first one and were excited about our Saren release.
But, alas, it was not meant to be, Bioware has informed us that since there will be no new Mass Effect content until the sequel, to continue more Mass Effect products at this time would probably not find a place in the market, especially in the trying times we are heading into in 2009.
We had a blast working on what we did with Mass Effect and are proud of the Commander Shepard statue. The fact that Hyperchild was able to get out and be part of the franchise as well as interacting with all of you has been an incredible experience.
Before we turn off the lights on this production blog, we’ll post the final photos of the Saren sculpt in full view so you can have a look at the last work as well as the final tally on who would have been the third statue. The blog will go back into full gear when we are ready to announce our next big project for 2009, then we’ll bring the party back, hope you can join us as we gained so many new fans over the past year.
Happy Holidays to everyone - we’ll see you all in 2009!
The photo below is of a variant “helmet-less” Shepard Hyperchild was planning as well.
