I must say, Skully's quite popular with the ladies. While waiting for a cab outside, he got a couple of smiles and "Ouuuu's" here n there.

Both of you look like a million bucks, my friend. :slan:

I'll continue to add more here: https://imgur.com/a/pG7Fxbo

Will be very difficult to display (can't see all of the faces at any one angle), but pretty impressed Tsume decided to be so ambitious to do this scene. I applaud them for going all out on their first release.







Also a video on their FB (good to watch this one because you can sense the scale and see all the angles: https://www.facebook.com/tsumeart/videos/2457760067583170/?hc_location=ufi

I like to collect AoW Berserk figures. Anyone here sell any?

What you want is here

There's been a few times in the last several years when AOW is slow to respond. Usually it's because their offices are closed for a week, or it's some holiday, etc. I wouldn't worry too much about it. You could also try messaging them on Facebook?

That's pretty cool and ridiculously huge, the base is very impressive, especially the beast though it looks a little rodent-like, but it's odd having two Pucks on there so close together

Actually they give you the option to choose with Puck to have on there. But I wanted both, heheh. I love both pucks =)
And yes, I agree the face isn't perfect, but it's close! Prime1 definitely have their own "style" much like AOW have their own "style". Sometimes I wish companies would just use Miura's style, haha, but I have to say overall, I'm really pleased with this piece.

Holy cow DirectDK, did you make a custom backrop? That's pretty cool. How did you do it, and what kind of material is that?
I just have some lights  :carcus:

Wow, love your lights and picture too!!! Looks fantastic, and cool that you have him on display. I don't know what to do with mine right now lol.
And I bought a custom blanket for the backdrop. Hung it with some big clips on a photo backdrop stand and bought some cheap studio lights. Since I can't display it in my home just yet, at least I'll go all out on the pics =)

Oh wow!! I didn't know Dark Horse had officially launched all of the volumes in digital to begin with!!! Perfect for my new iPad. Thank you!!!

Some pics of my Guts statue by Prime1. Cannot believe how BIG it is. First shot you can see how it compares to a standard 1/10 AOW Guts:











More pics and also a video on my instagram: https://www.instagram.com/p/BgpPNQlBGZa/

Overall, I'm very impressed. I don't like the 2nd and exclusive head (the big grin). My favorite is the original "neutral" expression. I think it looks most like Guts. The base is also not as cluttered when you see it in person. In pictures, it's a lot going on. But in person, the scale is so big you can really look through the base with ease and it's really something to be appreciated in that regard. I cannot wait for Zodd!

1/6 scale is for me. 1/4 is just too much size/price.

I agree. After getting Prime1's 1/4 Guts... as amazing as the size is, I don't think I can collect multiple 1/4 lines of Berserk statues. It's just too big!

Wow, impressive with the two side by side Guts up top! Nice choice of display case too =)

Please post some pictures when you can. I would love to see how it looks like. I hope the paintjob quality is good.

The paintjob is amazing. Way better than the Guts release. I'm crazy impressed with this piece. And the face isn't as goofy as the prototype photos.

Here are a few shots, but I posted a lot more on my Instagram @berserkstatues (and will be posting more in the coming days).

Whatís the little Schierke statue from? Fan made, garage kit? Looking forward to Prime1s Schierke, Iíve always wanted a statue of her.

Honestly, I'm not sure who made it. I saw it on Yahoo Auctions Japan a few days after 2016 Wonder Festival and just picked it up. It is a painted kit (resin). And yes, I cannot wait for more Schierke stuff! She needs more representation!

So I haven't updated this thread since 2011, but just wanted to let everyone know I started a berserkstatues instagram account! Yeah... talk about 5 years late lol.

Please follow if you'd like! I'm more likely to update my Instagram than my site because of convenience (aka I'm too lazy :schierke:). Here are some pics I've posted so far!

The statue by F4F is just okay imo. Not a fan of the face.

The paint-ups of the previous conventions display weren't final, but even still, having seen the statue in person, I think the faces are pretty good. I prefer them over the Prime1 Guts face, actually. Prime1 has their own style with their faces (much like AOW had their own "style" with theirs). But I do feel like F4F is going for a more manga-accurate face, so I'm pretty hopeful for it. Plus, the speed and dynamism in the picture Zurth posted of the statue from the side is quite impressive. I can't wait to see the final thing!

Few more of Zodd and Slan:





I agree, the face of Zodd is way more anime than manga. It takes a bit getting used to, but overall the statue is quite impressive. The LED eyes are a nice touch, and I appreciate the added pillar collapsing. I can't imagine how the wings will look.

Slan is pretty sexy, but I think they could have been a bit more inventive with the pose. Of course, excited to have a 1/4 of her though, so I can't complain! Ubik... way way too similar to AOW's God Hand set. The pole better go. P1 should be able to think of more creative ways to display Ubik than that!

Can't wait to see more. I guess SK won't be making his debut at this convention. =(

Hi, sorry for the delayed response. They are definitely not bootlegs. Those are convention exclusives. Congrats on the purchase!

I definitely think he's gonna be more expensive than $600, however $1000 is too much IMO. Then again, their Bowser did end up at $699, and he is way shorter and far less complicated.

I totally agree, I'm so shocked about how expensive the Bowser is and the Mario Tanooki statue was.  I guess it must be solid resin, but still.

Great photo IncantatioN, looking really good! Both you and the statue. :slan: And F4F's Guts is definitely 1/4 scale, sorry if I made it sound like I thought otherwise.

Incantation always looks good.  Gotta hand it to the photographer too :carcus: hehehe.

No matter what, 75 cm is huge, and definitely impressive for a 1/4 piece. I just hope that DirectDK is wrong about the $1k price tag :puck: Would feel quite uncharacteristic coming from F4F.. It would be very heavy indeed, at least with P1's piece landing on the same price point.

I could definitely be wrong.  I hope I am!  Haha.  I was slightly distracted, chatting with Incantation / taking pics of the statue, when I overheard Chuckles talking with the other customer next to us.  I know he certainly said "$1000" but maybe I heard it out of context?  Personally speaking though, it was an impressive statue and as Incantation said... the Berserk inflation I think will play a part in the pricing.  If you look at the Max Factory statues too, those are upwards of $1000, so I wouldn't be surprised if F4F follows suit.  But we'll see!  Like I said, I hope I'm wrong!!!

Also, Chuckles mentioned to me (I did eventually talk to him haha), that there will be an exclusive version (the base will light up, as well as the faces on the bottom) and there will be an option for bloody vs non-bloody... which is quite reminiscent of AOW, haha.

(official word so far is "much more [than $549]" and close to their Amaterasu bust ($725)).

Hmm I was there at NYCC and saw the statue in person.  It's actually pretty damn amazing and the stern face is quite good in my opinion.  Especially from the 45 degree angle it's near perfect likeness IMO.  As for the price, Chuckles said at NYCC to a customer standing next to me it will probably be around the $1000 range... so who knows.

As for the comparison picture, I feel like the F4F figure should be a bit bigger than it looks in the comparison, but it's hard to match since it's just a photoshop mockup.  It truly did look MASSIVE in person, and it is indeed 1/4 scale.  Actually I've seen both Prime1 and F4f Guts statues in person now (Prime1 at SDCC) and I think they will match each other pretty closely.
