I wonder if Mattel has been cracking down on the Chinese factories about reselling these?
    I was wondering too.
    You see quite a lot of testshots on ebay these days, but they're all older characters. Maybe you're right and less and less testshots come to the marketplace. Future will tell.

    It's sad that there's not much different between an unpainted Sir Laser-Lot test shot and the "finished" product!

    Weird, I was thinking the exact opposite. Despite still being pretty simple, the final figure has a lot of nice paint details that really make the figure pop. It's quite subtle, but it makes a world of difference.

    His arms are not, I can tell you that much. I picked him up yesterday, and noticed a chip of paint missing. Black plastic.

    It's more a Starla with a Tallstar-head and a Glory Bird without armor, but with a Zoar-stand.

    I received one of the Sorceress figures being sold on ebay with "broken waist" in the title. She was cheap ($36.13 shipped!) and came with no accessories. She does have a few very minor paint dings, but I am an opener and my figs end up with those anyway. But, the "broken waist" part on mine was hardly an issue at all. It looks like someone layed a knife blade on her waist just above the articulation point and pressed the blade into the waist where it only cut about 25% of the way in. It looks more like a hard scratch. I took a couple pictures. I just need to upload them.

    This figure clearly must have been a QA reject.

    For my money, I am very happy to have the Sorceress figure in my collection. I really didn't want to pay a ton for her (even loose and complete), so this was a welcome substitution. I also snagged the staff by itself and have that on the way. Very happy. Hopefully, the seller puts up Zoar soon so I can complete her.
    Take it easy,
    Drew

    Looking for: deals on MOTUC Roboto, King He-Man, Meckaneck, Zoar (from Sorceress) and more!
    Have to trade: A couple MOTU vintage, GIJOE (vintage 3.75 inch and 25th Anniversary figures and vehicles), Star Wars, Transformers (movie line), and Marvel Universe and a few Marvel Legends, plus MORE!.

    I'm on the hunt to track him!

    I already revealed Horde Prime test shot with his head "under the helmet" before he was released (see : this thread )
    I hope to find The Unamed One

    Hmm.....will I be strong enough to resist if a test shot of the Unnamed One gets leaked before he is shipped to us At this point I'd rather just have the surprise of seeing him first when he arrives at my doorstep, but I don't know if I can resist sneaking a peek!

    Mattel seems to have increased its security checks at the chinese facilities (at last). For a long time, we have not seen test shots from figures that were not already sold. Every new MOTUC test shot that appears on ebay are from action figure which are already released. (for example no test shots of Modulok, or Glimmer or Two-Bad).
    But who knows? Scott even had fun with this kind of issue during the NYCC panel "You will only see him when you will receive him..; or if he shows up on ebay before" (something like that)
