This was supposed to be an anniversary figure for the character, then it vanished and Loosecollector nor the artist mentioned it in years. I did notice the hips of the current figures resembled the hips of the Shi prototype shown. If the figure has the design elements and weapons of the 1/6 versions with the quality of Lady Death then it should be a fiting tribute to the character.

Yeah talked to LC yesterday, I will give snippets of what he said.
Shi is coming soon, he has learned from Taarna and sincerely wants to do good and better for the fans and it should show in HellWitch.
The other stuff was personal among friends who go back 12 years.

Awesome. Good to know Hellwitch and beyond are getting special care. No actual familiarity with the Hellwitch character, but I’ve wanted a succubus figure forever and she seems to fit that bill quite nicely.

Executive Replicas have my undelivered Taarnas back at the base and still won't refund me.

Hope LC figures out distro options, because ER is clown shoes.

Question: do you think Red Sonja would scale well with the Mezco Conan figure?

Nothing to be done because of the long lead time between PO and ship.

I've done every channel I can past three months, bank to California BBB, it all ends with "It's up to Exec Replicas, sorry". Who have stopped responding after attempting to gaslight me.

Not being dramatic, Winston emailed me and tried to convince me of a different series of events where I turned away UPS. Unless I have a Mrs. Hyde Persona, No.

Plot twist: my alt persona is Jekyll.

If they have them back why won't they just ship them back out.
I mean are they hurting that much for money.

Winston from ER was once escorted out of 2010 NY Toy Fair by security after yelling and handing out flyers in front of Triad Toys (now defunct) booth. Possibly due to a deal falling through for Triad to design/manufacture a female buck for ER.

I found Triad's owner, Louie Tran's account of the incident. Louie was a customizer selling mostly female outfits before starting up his company. They eventually added female and male bodies and boxsets to their line. Pretty good quality at the time. Eh, it was an amusing story back then:
I was in a meeting with Nintendo when Drew called me and said there is an emergency situation at our booth and asked me to come back immediately. When I arrived back to the Triad booth, Drew said there was some guy handing out flyers, but didn't know who it was. I looked at the flyer, but didn't know what it was about. I looked around, but didn't know what was going on. Finally I saw security come over at EMCE's booth (which was one booth over from ours) and they were talking to someone. I looked and noticed it was Winston Dunlop. At that point, Mr. Dunlop came over to our booth and started yelling at me. I told him that this is not the place or time to do this and if he had any issues, I will give him our attorney's contact information and we can do it more civilly.

Mr. Dunlop was escorted out by security accordingly.

I found out a few minutes later that several of the other vendors were the ones that contacted security about Mr. Dunlop and that he was scaring the vendors and no one knew what was going on. Joe Scena from EMCE Toys came over our booth a few minutes later and spoke with me about the situation and gave me a little history about Mr. Dunlop as well. I then went back to my meeting and that was it.

When I returned to the hotel, I sent the following email to Mr. Dunlop and Norman Sockwell of Sci Fi Metropolis:
