Title: Upcoming Gecco Berserk statue - 2015
Post by: rayhato on December 19, 2014, 10:15:30 AM
Good news, everyone!

I was talking with Shinya Akao-san (known as Headlong sculptor) about his great kits and this is what he told me:

Quote
Berserk Kit can not be acquired copyright only in the event, I can not sell directly.
I'm sorry, please understand.
But I am making the Berserk Statue at the request of Gecco Corp.
Because it is scheduled to be released next year, please expect.

Thank You.

The only Gecco works I know this far are Pyramid Head statue and Metal Gear Rising statue. I also saw a few Naruto prototypes and their quality above the average.
I hope we will see promo at upcoming Wonder Festival in February.

Simply great news. Gecco until now produced pretty good statues and they also have good prices.
I just can imagine a great outcome, since headlong will sculpt Berserk related stuff for Gecco.
It was about damn time that other companys like good smile company and geeco corp. jump into the business of producing Berserk Statues.

This is a bit offtopic but Gecco just opened preorders for Metal Gear Solid: Revengeance Raiden figure, and he was scultped by Headlong. This is PVC version of his kit and this can give us some hope for PVC release his infamous Berserk kit. Also, his Cobra kit was released in vinyl earlier.
And here is Raiden, holy moly he is just gorgeous.

You might be a bit late rayhato, pre-orders have been up for a month or so, and he's mostly sold out.

Here's more info on Gecco's (now english) page:

Well for figures I'm using amiami shop and they opened orders not so long ago (or put it on a home page not so long ago). Anyway the point is that mass-produced Headlong statues using the same sculpt as his kits so far, so we could actually get some of his Berserk statues in PVC.

Annnnnnd here it is!

http://www.mamegyorai.co.jp/net/main/item_detail/item_detail.aspx?item=405478

My initial impressions...

1) MANNNN the same ol' pose again!!!  C'mon give me something new!!!
2) Some of the angles it looks great (like the profile view), but some of the front angles I feel like the face is a bit too wide.  I think I may actually prefer the alternate face.  But hard to tell with the pictures they gave us.
3) I think my favorite thing about this piece is the pouch with Puck!  Hahaha!

Other details is it's PVC, roughly 35,800 - 39,800 yen, 1/6 scale (38 cm), and due in September 2015.

Overall, I think Headlong could definitely have done better... But I think I'll be getting one still.  That's just me, though...

PS One thing to note.  That MGS statue posted up above is also 1/6 (32 cm) and retailed for 20,400 yen.  This Guts figure is almost twice the price...  Berserk inflation again???
Title: Re: Upcoming Gecco Berserk statue - 2015
Post by: Walter on March 24, 2015, 03:16:32 AM
Everything but the face looks pretty damned solid, to me. And I also appreciate the attention to detail, adding Puck and Becchi peeking out of  his satchel (http://www.mamegyorai.co.jp/net/main/item_detail_image/item_detail_image.aspx?item=405478&image=22).

But why are there multiple faces? (http://www.mamegyorai.co.jp/images/items/405478-w300.jpg & http://www.mamegyorai.co.jp/images/full/405478-8.jpg)

Post by: sensui on March 24, 2015, 03:50:12 AM
Thanks for posting that....I think it looks pretty darn good actually in terms of the details.....pose is nothing dynamic or new but I kind of think AOW has most of Guts typical poses covered by now so not very let down.  Agreed the face is a bit wide but IMO still looks good....you have to remember Guts is a muscle fiend so having a bit of a wider face doesn't really distract from the statue IMO.....despite the fact his face is a tad slimmer in the manga.  Overall....I'm buying it for sure.....love the details on his skin.
Title: Re: Upcoming Gecco Berserk statue - 2015
Post by: IncantatioN on March 24, 2015, 05:55:42 AM
Thanks for the update, excellent scale! Agree with everything said in the posts above.

Although yeah, it could have been cheaper like the MGS statue. Perhaps the Guts statue is more expensive because it would take them weeks to forge individual Dragonslayers for every order :troll: or they were thinking "Hey, we're giving them 2 whole characters. Why charge for 1?!". Or it's the other head.

But why are there multiple faces? (http://www.mamegyorai.co.jp/images/items/405478-w300.jpg & http://www.mamegyorai.co.jp/images/full/405478-8.jpg)

I like the option of the other head because it's the first time we've seen that sort of expression on a Guts statue compared to what AOW's put out so far. Can't help but chuckle when I see it. The brand's bleeding and he's got that maniacal grin.

Post by: rayhato on March 24, 2015, 07:59:11 AM
Ah guys you were faster again (damn it was 3AM)  :ubik:

So he is huge, around 40cm. Same old pose yes, I already have 2 of them in this pose (and I pose my figmas like that too), the quality is superb at the pictuers. The face is actually good but eyebrows messing it a bit. Second face looks awkward.
Here the link from Gecco, translated from moonspeak: http://www.gecco.co.jp/sheet/sheet-guts-en.html

Oh and yes I'm really upset that it is not his infamous kit (sitting on a rock). Really, really upset.

Post by: Aazealh on March 24, 2015, 08:19:56 AM
Great statue. Face looks perfect to me. It might be the same old pose, but it's the first time it's done right as far as I'm concerned. I'll gladly welcome it into my collection. :guts:
Title: Re: Upcoming Gecco Berserk statue - 2015
Post by: The Beast of Darkness on March 24, 2015, 08:45:23 AM
Yes, me too; I really like it. There is a ton of details, the base is excellent (HEADLONG is the best when it comes to Berserk), everything looks great. I've already pre-ordered it.  :guts:
Title: Re: Upcoming Gecco Berserk statue - 2015
Post by: Liad on March 24, 2015, 10:37:24 AM
Pre-ordered this instantly. I like the attention to detail, and I think a bulky Guts is better. I think the face is great, and seeing as AoW has done this pose a million times in smaller scale & worse for 3 times the price - I think this is a steal. I recommend buying stuff like this through retailers like ami-ami, because they usually give a 20% discount.

Case in point:
http://www.amiami.com/top/detail/detail?gcode=FIGURE-010896&page=top%2Fsearch%2Flist%3Fs_keywords%3Dberserk%24pagemax%3D40%24getcnt%3D0%24pagecnt%3D1 (http://www.amiami.com/top/detail/detail?gcode=FIGURE-010896&page=top%2Fsearch%2Flist%3Fs_keywords%3Dberserk%24pagemax%3D40%24getcnt%3D0%24pagecnt%3D1)

I will be very cautious when it comes to buying statues, because it's getting out of hand, but I can see myself buying Human Zodd from Gecco if they keep this up. I seriously need Revelations Zodd in my life.

Looking at the Guts & Zodd bust (also from Headlong) I do think those are better portraits, but it looks like we're getting a slightly westernized Guts with this one, which I don't mind. We could have gotten Baby face Guts from the movies, which would have been atrocious (imho).

i'm trying to like it but the posture is really weird - he's leaning back/looks like he has lordosis
also the single dot on the eyeball is bothering me

Post by: Liad on March 24, 2015, 06:43:27 PM
I think i'd have a shitty back myself If I was lugging around a sword that requires several men in order to even lift.

From that angle it looks a bit odd, but other than that, the pose looks fine from other angles. I mean, if you don't like it you don't like it. simple as that. For anyone who dabbles with AoW it might seem "cheap", but it is a substantial amount to put down for what is, at the end of the day, decoration. If you don't feel 100% confident in buying it, then I highly recommend that you don't.

Post by: Sankari on March 25, 2015, 01:35:56 AM
I agree with some people here, its headlong, but the end result is a bit ... Okayish...
Much better than any HS Art of War has ever done, granted . But the skin texture looks odd. Maybe its the paintjob
The pose is very uninspired, granted, but its detailed enough.
I dunno, for that price I think I'll stick with either threezero or medicom, and customize him to perfection ;)
The medicom headsculpt looks great. I already plan on giving him a body modification.
Title: Re: Upcoming Gecco Berserk statue - 2015
Post by: Liad on March 25, 2015, 08:23:53 AM
I agree with the paint job on the skin, but I like the rough texture on the skin (Might just be me). The paint job is very simply, having only 1-2 layers of shading, which makes his complexion very pale, and duller than the rest of the statue. That is my primary complaint about the statue, but overall I think the presentation is great.

It's a new Berserk line - they have to start somewhere, and why not start with the classic? The only reason I think it's a generic pose is because AoW has been milking it for years. In actuality, it showcases Guts perfectly - it shows off his weaponry, his battleworn attire & body, and it showcases both the immensity of the DS, and Guts' superhuman strength.  the satchel with Puck & Becchi in it is icing on the cake.

I think Berserk statues will forever live with the taint of AoW, because they had a monopoly for so long, that they kept cranking up the prices, so other producers think they can get away with it. GSC guts is a good example (although it's gigantic, so the price is more justified, although I still think it's overpriced).

I didn't buy GSC's 120000 JPY Guts because I thought it was too expensive and too big, but this one is right up my alley. But hey, to each their own.

yeah I think you're right. I am getting the MF statue so maybe I'll just wait for a berserker armor iteration instead of getting another black swordsman

I just don't want to regret not preordering, then having them fix up the issues hahah

What do you mean? I don't remember any statue being particularly off-mark , they sculpt is too crude, and not up to standard. They can't produce the same level of fidelity that is expected of the collector's market nowadays, and I for one think the paint job is fine, but nothing extraordinary ) the "blood effect" is overused and simplistic, on AOW, but having said that, I don't recall figures with that much difference from the prototype to the finished sculpt.

I think this is possibly the best Guts face I've seen on a statue.  High price for PVC, but if the quality comes close to these images, it'll be worth it (comparitively speaking).  Budget is tight, but I think I might snap this one up.

The only guts face off the top of my head that compares is art of wars 1/10 birth ceremony guts. It's probably the perfect statue, besides is relatively small size.

But I agree, it's expensive for PVC, but it's pretty much the only option we have for a non berserker armor guts with a great face, great size, that isn't close to $1000. With the current rates the statue is about $260 or so. With shipping it'll be around $325 I'm guessing. Not terrible.

I kinda wish Art of War would make PVC statues in the $200 - $500 space. All their newest statues and repaints are in the $700+ range, which leaves a huge gap for others to fill. I think it'll ease their repaint problems as well. Instead of repainting a statue a dozen times, rerelease polystone statues as PVC ones and call it a day. Older collectors won't cry foul since they have the "better" statue and people would bitch less about the price and how it's too high or way higher than before.

Double-post.  I just got this in today and it is beautiful.  Definitely one of the highest quality PVC's I own or have come across.  I am having issues getting the cape on correctly, though.  It has two wedge-like pegs that are supposed to slide onto his shoulders, but I can't seem to make it happen.  If anyone else has better luck, let me know what I'm missing.I'm guessing it's the technique of dropping it into place that I am overlooking.

I'm waiting on mine to come in, I pre-ordered from AmiAmi in April and I got the shipment notification yesterday. The wait is killing me though!  :sad:

Also, in Itakon.it review of this figure they also had trouble getting the cape on it seems:

"The assembly itself is simple, but for us it was a little 'tough the first insertion of the coat has two pins that were resistant PVC; after a few minutes, however, they are entered into the holes on the shoulders, without particular problems." http://itakon.it/giapponesi/berserk-guts-the-black-swordsman-16-scale-statue-di-gecco-recensione.html

You should get it relatively soon, it will take a little longer for a retailer like BBTS to get their stock in so they can ship it out. But the official release date for this figure was just a few days ago so not long now!

Did the cape snap in hard or were you able to get it on without force?  I tried putting it on several times and kept walking away from it out of fear that I was going to damage it by forcing it on. It just seems like one side is always too tight to fit while the other is in the slot.

Currently repainting mine.

I have to admit, it's a really really nice piece straight out of the box (I don't say this often) but I couldn't help but think the skin tones were lacking and very 2-tone looking (head on the right is stock)

Anyway, still WIP, but getting there

It's clearly one of my favourite piece.

Hey guys,

Here's my take on Gecco's Guts. I have to say it's a really nice statue straight out of the box.

I thought the skin was too pale though so I decided to give him the repaint treatment. Working with a fully assembled PVC statue is no easy task as I can't use acetone or lacquer thinner to melt down the glue. I could have tried hot water but I thought it'd be safer to just mask off what I was gonna keep from the factory paintjob.

Here are the mods I did:

-All the skin parts were repainted, including both portraits (each head has a slightly different hair color)

-Highlights and scuffs on his armor

-Blood splatters on Guts and his sword


I'll probably get back to work on him later and redo more parts when I have a little more time for personal projects.

Anyway, hope you like the result

Did the cape snap in hard or were you able to get it on without force?  I tried putting it on several times and kept walking away from it out of fear that I was going to damage it by forcing it on. It just seems like one side is always too tight to fit while the other is in the slot.

Mines not totally in lol. Same problem as you, one side goes in fully the other doesn't and but it looks good, so I'm not gonna mess with it lol.

Kind of off topic, but whats the name of the display case you have? I've been debating on a new one.

No idea. Found it on Craigslist for $200. The cheapest I've seen for these guys new are $600.

I received mine today and I've got to say it's really great value. Couldn't be happier with it. They even got most of the Berserk stuff right (on the box and card), which is a more than welcome departure from Art of War's perpetual mangling of it.

It's definitely a beautiful statue.  Did you have any issues attaching the cape, Aazealh?

Yeah the pegs don't fit perfectly, they only go in about halfway or two thirds through. It's a bit weird since the cape is properly set that way (fitting Guts' body tightly)... Just a design decision I guess, but they probably should have informed people to avoid frustration. I also had to force on the sword hilt a bit to make the blade fit as the arm was at a wrong angle.

Thanks for the reply.  I do see what you mean when I have his left side in (probably half the peg in, flush to his body).  My problem is that no matter how I drop the cape on, the right side (facing his back) will not fit in at all.  It's close, but just slightly hanging onto his shoulder. I'm wondering if mine just has a little manufacturing defect I can't see, because it looks fairly normal.  I'm going to go at it again for another 20 or 30 minutes to see if I can drop it into place and if not, ask for a replacement.  I have never purchased anything from D4toys, so I'm hoping they'll be willing to help.

Hmm, maybe filing it would work? Not an ideal solution, but if it's only slightly off, it could save you more trouble.

Yeah, that might be worth it.  It won't be visible when seated in the holes and would avoid the return headache.  Hmmm.  I think i might get my courage up and go for it.  Thanks for the suggestion.

I'm late to the party, but I got mine a few weeks ago and displayed it instantly.  It's absolutely gorgeous and exceeded my expectations.  The stock photos don't do this statue justice.  Easily one of my favorite Berserk purchases in years.  GOOD JOB HEADLONG AND GECCO! :ubik: :ubik: :ubik:

Just got mine.....amazing like you guys said.  It's all about that sneering Guts head hah.  The cape took a little bit of force but mine seemed to have went in.  I did have to adjust the hilt even when the cape went all the way in to make sure the blade slides into that slot on the cape properly.  But man.....we need more from Gecco/Headlong.  A Berserker Armored Guts next would be awesome.

It's not you can still buy it for that price on Gecco's site. I was looking for the statue everywhere but it was way too expensive on Ebay and other sites. So I ordered one off of Gecco's site the other day. With shipping for me it was about $363. Which is a pretty good price compared to getting it anywhere else. So if anyone else is still trying to get the statue. Gecco's site is probably the best place to get it. Although you'll have to wait awhile to receive it. Can't wait to get mine!

The figure was $339, and the shipping for me was $24. So not bad at all. This is about to be the longest wait of my life though.

Got my Statue the other day and I'm blown away. This is probably one of the best value statue's out there for Guts. The price is so good for the quality. I really would like to see Gecco do another Guts statue with the Berserker armor. Just the thought of that gets me excited.
