It's Femto's birth, but reinterpreted, so it's not from any "real" scene (same goes for the Guts statue). I wish the model was more faithful to the manga's design.

I agree, but I think their own twist on it is interesting enough on its own. That, and I think they want to avoid directly competing with AoW by creating identical statues.

But looking at the statues (characters) by themselves, I think they have the start of a great line in the works. This Femto statue is less extravagant than the Guts statue, so I hope this gets reflected in the price.

That's a silly assumption. Berserk's a rich story with so many ideas or scenes or characters to choose from. We often discuss how AOW isn't faithful with character design. It would work in this new company's favor to be as faithful as possible. They can avoid creating identical statues by picking different scenes or poses or different characters. I'd rather see them do that versus make something up that isn't in the manga. This Femto Rebirth scene doesn't fit at all, base and pose.
Title: Re: Max Factory Femto
Post by: Zoddit on July 27, 2014, 04:05:49 PM
Personally, I don't care of the faithfulness to a particular scene, moment or pose. I see if a statue or a drawing transmits me the essence of the manga.
for example, among my favorites Miura's drawings are the 12th and 13th tankobon covers!
obviously this is an abstract interpretation of the character. I can't tell that the base is out of context anyway, maybe my only concerns are for the shapes of the figure itself but I need more pics.

Unless I'm mistaken, I think that's suppose to be part of the Vortex.  Which I think is a really nice touch, shows they're thinking outside the box.

While I think staying faithful to character design is important, I don't feel the same way about bases. AoW has done mostly scenes that were from the manga, but I'm having a hard time recalling another line of statues that tries to directly copy a scene from the original work (continuosly that is). They usually do poses that are true to how the character might act, and I think we're getting that with these Max Factory statues. Guts' immense strength is shown by him one-handing the DS, and it puts the DS on display. Femto's is more subtle, and while the "looking at hand" pose is fairly stock, I think it works here. The focus is on Femto's design, and it is intricately detailed.  This comes down to personal preference, because I certainly don't think they NEED to only do scenes from the manga, but it would be good every now and then.

The design of the bases seems to be an artistic representation and time stamp of where the characters are meant to be in the saga, and there could be many reasons for this, but if it comes down to the artists personal preference, then I prefer that to AoW's artists who just "don't want the characters to look like that, and we can't make them change their minds".

I honestly really like this Femto Statue. Max Factory did an very good Job. The base isn't maybe completely fatihful to the manga, but  it doesn't bother me that much. Hopefully the paint Job will be good too  :femto:

From my source these two pieces will be done with PVC, unlimited number.  You can order 5000 pieces and as long as you pay they will do it for you. Also max factory is known for rereleasing the products made years ago.

So if u like it go get them.  Each probably gonna cost You anywhere from 200 to 300 bucks. If you want a fairly unique / rare limited piece u gotta go elsewhere.

Also u can choose to get it two years later with around the same price. They will be steadily available.

Gosh , I hope so.
I'm so glad these are getting released. It's a breath of fresh air to AoW's stale cheese
AoW was eager to cash on the whole "exclusive" deal. We all know now it was plain BS.

The Sculpt on both femto and guts are excellent, Femto looks wonderful, I hope he gets a decent scale (1/6 at least)

I wish they'd sell PVC because of the shipping weight , but thats it.

Also, I loved Slan and Void in their respective figma versions

I don't think that makes much sense. It's weird no matter how you slice it. But if I were in the statue buying market, that wouldn't stop me from acquiring this otherwise superb rendition of Femto.

i doubt they gonna cost 200 or 300 dlls, given the size of them, my guess they are gonna be around 400 or 500

The Guts Statue is Polystone so this one will be the same

price guess 300-400

way better then aow though  :carcus:

Well Femto's design is itself not completely faithful to the manga, as I commented earlier on. As for the bases, I don't have a problem with the one for the Guts statue because it's plausible (Guts has killed tons of apostles "off-screen") and it actually looks great (much better than the bases AoW's produced in the past, which by the way weren't always faithful to the manga either). For Femto, I think it's alright since the statue itself is cool, but it does come across as an odd choice to have the bodies inside the beherit-eggshell. Not a deal-breaker though, like Walter said.

I prefer that to AoW's artists who just "don't want the characters to look like that, and we can't make them change their minds".

Beyond that bullshit, AoW's pulled some pretty lame shit over the years. Including getting the characters wrong, like the Daka's color (green instead of red), Zodd's wings (not anatomically correct) and so on.

Man, I love everything about this statue! Sure, it's not completely faithful, but I think the liberties are fine. I really like Femto's pose for some reason. He just exudes elegance and power.

These both look so fucking amazing!  :isidro: Haven't brought anything from AOW in along time just can't be bothered with there boring poses an ridiculous prices these have great poses an i love the bases on both an at most likely half price instant buy! Hope there released soon! I'm also pretty happy about the fact that there not going to be done in limited numbers makes it so much easier to obtain  :ubik:

I wonder what "exclusive" deal AOW will bring out to try an compete with this  :schierke:

The very same Art of War made lot in PVC. Today's PVC quality is far over handpainted ones and it is a shame to Art of War when people repaint their statues and it looks better than original.
I wish for limited series made from bronze to appear. I have a Daicon III figure from 80's, it still unpainted and look very "memorial".

Hi there, thanks for the information.  May I ask what your source is? Perhaps they have made an announcement on release dates? I'm sure everyone is eager to know.  If anyone else has any clue, feel

free to reply to my post - even if you only have a good idea what kind of release schedule time frames Max Factory normally put in place.  Also, I assume they don't have direct access to their products

to anywhere overseas if anyone has any good suggestions for a retailer?

More fresh pics from NYCC 2014!

The prototype looks like PVC with sights of casting process (the last picture). He is non-scale so final price may vary even for PVC, not to mention that there is no announcement yet. They can make it polystone so fans keep your fingers crossed.

Yes, we had to wait until painted prototype arrives. Looking at their Guts we can say that paint job would be well-made but personally I'd like to see more dark tones. I'll post some of his shots in his topic.

Amazing is right! The Beherit is the perfect color red and I love the look of the corpses. Never seen corpses painted like that and it looks eerily realistic. I'm not a fan of dark statues but that doesn't matter in this case. I would like a better view of the purple though...ah there need to be some 1/4 scale femto's as well as slan etc...

Anyway, this is a must have. So glorious.

Wow this statue...it's so close to perfection...yet so far.

I dislike the face, it seems a bit off. That being said, the stylized wrists, calves, and crotch area are amazing. Seems kinda weird to comment on, but as far I know, the crotch area of Femto is usually obscured or omitted. It's really only  in Volume 3 that we get a good view. Whoever designed that portion on this statue did a great job given the limited source material. It also matches the other stylized portions and actually works for Femto. Neat!

Just that face....hrmmm. It's not the 'helmet' portion. Its definitely the inner face that's a bit off. Pose is kinda weird, but kinda works. As for the base, it's kinda crazy, but still works. The colors are perfect.

I agree.  I gave it a A++++ before the 2nd picture was added.  I have to say the inner face (the eyes) are a tad awkward.  I need to see more pics to really say for sure!  Either way, I'm still very excited for this piece.

And dayum, that cosmic-skin articulation ruminating throughout his body (most evident in the deltoid, pectoral, and ab plates) is beautiful.

Seems like profile or indirect shots look best. Looking dead on he looks strange. Now that I think about it, how many times do we actually see Femto/Griffith with his helmet on straight on in the manga? It might just be the nature of the helmet design.

We do see it in the manga and it looks fine (during the Eclipse for example). Max Factory just messed up the eye alignment here. Nothing that can't easily be fixed for the production model I think.

3 years later!  And we finally got a preorder link!!

http://goodsmileshop.com/en/CATEGORY-ROOT/Scale-Figure/Femto/p/MAX_WHS_WD_00010
Release Date: Sept 2017
Painted 1/6th scale polystone figure with stand included. Approximately 420mm in height.

98,000 yen (a few hundred USD cheaper than the Guts statue from 2016), and for me it was only 2,000 yen shipping which is absurdly cheap.  Glad it finally is coming out!
