Mother’s Day is coming up this Sunday and Mezco Toyz has brought their Psycho Mega Scale Roto Plush “Mother” to New York to celebrate. I can almost guarantee that this is the creepiest thing you will see all day.
Mezco’s Mother stands 14 inches tall and features a soft, floppy, poseable cloth body and rotocast head, hands, and feet. Mezco’s award-winning design team has recreated her screen accurate dress and shawl, and Mother’s head and hands have been sculpted with intricate detail. Her gaping mouth forever frozen in a deathly skeletal grin beneath the hollow sockets of her eyes, her desiccated skin clings to her boney, gnarled, clawlike hands. She sits…and waits.
Taking a break from the demands of the hospitality industry as well as the cramped confines of the fruit cellar, Mother went on a whirlwind tour of the city that would wear out someone half her age. Beginning in Times Square mother hailed a cab and went to Ripley’s Believe It Or Not! Odditorium for some wholesome family fun. Then she hopped on a double decker bus for a guided tour of the city’s landmarks. She took subway back to midtown to lunch at the world famous Jekyll & Hyde Club, then visited Queens for some fun at The Museum Of The Moving Image.
Mezco Toyz is currently accepting pre-orders for their Mother. She ships in October for $40. For more information you can view Mother’s product page on the Mezco website.
