Wasn't it right that it is "Berserk Illustrations File"?  It was translated in different languages (French,German,Italian I know) and they've got different covers or not?

Is it true that the Illustrations File Artbook was never tranlated in English? I found it in French, German (my language), italian and jpanese of course but not in english. Kinda funny cause normally it's the other way around. 

Just happy that the Guidebook will be translated now...

Ended up ordering the P1 Berserker Armor statue today. I couldn't resist after losing out on the AOW Berserker Armor and pirate ship statue. The scale of the statue, plus Direct UK's video from August clinched it for me.

I will probably end up getting the exclusive version of the F4F Black Swordsman with souls base.

Unless they come out with a kick ass Rakshas figure, that should finish off my Berserk Guts collection: 1.) Guts on horseback from golden age, 2.) Black Swordsman and 3.) Berserker Armor.

 


awesome congrats, he will be stunning!

I'm talking about the people (me included) who are complaining since many years about Art of War sculpts and their accuracy.
Now we are seeing the results with Prime 1 and there are still some problems of accuracy.
But many people think it's accurate and it's ok, so what should I had ?
Headlong (he is a sculptor, not a company) did some better sculpts with his hands 12 years ago than Prime 1 did with their 3D sculpts recently.



I didn't know headlong is just one sculptor (or a group), thanks for the clarification. I came to Berserk just about 2 years ago, not since day one and IMO it's awesome that Berserk gets so much hype now and other companies also do good stuff. I would never say P1 is 100 % Manga accurate cause they aren't but IMO it's harsh to say they look like shit. As for AoW IMO you can say it cause some aren't accurate and they also look realy ugly, only a few I would say are ok (sculpt,accuracy,paint ...). I'm far away from being a Fanboy, I hate if someone tries to run another one down just because he loves his own company etc. So it's ok to say "I don't like it, it's not accurate" but IMO you can say it without to badmouth the whole statue. 

Edit: this is just an in general post, not against you. There is so much hate lately about who's the better company etc (especially the P1 Vs F4F case), it's just tiring. We should be all glad that we got so much stuff lately.

@Zurth: I also made the experience in the past that some members in here have a very radical opinion of accuracy, I think you could explain them in the smoothest way what P1 intention is for their pieces and they even would not understand (or just don't want to). It's ok to have his own opinion but IMO it hasn't to be this way...

"...that people wants something accurate to the original material".

Many people think it's accurate, so do I. Of course it's not a 100 % manga look and yes there is a personal touch to it but that's all I need. Just one piece is  21421221x better than the shitty looking art of war line which looks as sculpted right out of Femto's ass. But some in here are the opinion it's more accurate then the P1 line or the F4F's one, oh yeah. They are Fans of Berserk from day 1 but think it's accurate, really? The only company that really tried to be accurate besides P1 and F4F is Headlong IMO, they are definitely better than AoW but also they are just a few and most of them are just in 1/8++. 

If you'll take the Black Swordsman of P1, Yes it's not the face which Guts has in the BS arc. But the face defenitely reminds me of later Arcs we see. https://imgur.com/a/e3GWY

DirectDK maybe they even commented the P1 price for a short time, we will see but I could bet it will be not 1000 USD

Oh wow, thank you for the edit of the pictures aswell. Really fair prices! It's really hard to resist. Unfortunately they don't match to the upcoming Resin Pieces from other companies but you will definitely sell it for this prices!

@Zurth: You are absolutely sure your picture represents the right messurement? I knew that P1 Guts is a little bigger (if we take the official infos for now) than F4F's Guts but this seems to be a huge difference.
I also cannot believe it will be nearby 1000 USD. 1. They read themselfs that everyone expect a lower price than P1, 2.They said once it will be not more than their most expensive piece so far and that was Ammy Bust which costs 730 USD I think. 3. Because of this fact Fans would be really annoyed if it will be higher.

My guess from the start was about min. 600 USD to (because of the Ammy comment) 700 USD. I think 650 USD to 700 USD can be realistic. All above can also get real but then F4F's must justify the new price.

@IncantatioN: thought the same. I know there are tendons and veins on the neck and they have to pop out a bit cause he turns his head and is fighting but IMO they pop a little too much, don't know if it's accurate...

@sovel: Because of the size I think not but SK have to be!

Heres a post from Kelvin on fb today. I just post it. Everyone can think of it what he wants:

"J wants to be clear that for most anime/ manga like berserk, fist of the North Star etc, the version or look of the characters for the statue is requested by the creators themselves. The characters' look may change over time but most of the creators prefer to make statues based on the current look. It is not decided by Prime1 which version to make. J has to fulfill the wishes of the creators."

Pics are just screenshots of a Video... It's the shouting head. It's the reg and the ex head. The only difference is the Position of the eye.

Uh huh, yeah I'm sure what's-his-name is on a first name basis with Miura. I get that you're posting this to back your argument that the statue is an accurate depiction, but I wouldn't make too much of that statement. I'm pretty sure Miura has to greenlight all Berserk merchandise.

By the way, it's called the "Beast of Darkness". It's not a wolf (and it doesn't "follow" Guts either).



nope I don't want to back it, I just want to show that they worked together. In how far nobody knows. But I don't think Miura greenlight every shitty Berserk stuff. BTW Kelvin Loke is not from P1, he just plug for them on FB and is in a deeper connection to them than any of us so I would not wonder too much that he didn't know exaclty what the "beast" is cause he is not too deep into Berserk. But common it just could be a wolf or maybe a mixture of wolf and fox hahaha. But Kelvin is a nice guy and I don't think that he just come up with this comment and it's not true. No one of us has really proof of it except Miura would say it on his own so everyone can of course decide if he'll believe it or not.

maybe some of you new already, this was posted month ago on FB from Kelvin Loke:


"More photos of the awesome Berserks Guts which P1 has the privilege to work closely with the creator himself, Kentaro Miura.

Kentaro valuable inputs to make this not just a statue of Guts but a painting in 3D of Kentaro's ever evolving art style.

The impressive base captures the life of Guts as a demon slayer such as the Wolf of Darkness which follows him and the ghosts that hunts him.

Kentaro has given his seal of approval to the final design and look that was showcased in wonderfest.

Ps the paint job on the prototype shown is not final." 


@dadoo69: Good luck bro. Yesterday I saw one painted Berserk Armor Guts that went for 750 Euro (auction). Maybe you'll find an unpainted KIT for about 300 and let it paint. Zodd isn't that expensive... For me they now too overprized for what you get. Of course, the accuracy is good but for me not worth the Money... Would be perfect if they would do a rerelease but I think this won't be happen!

I don't think so personally more the "they don't want to" theory. There are other lines where the face is spot on like from games. I guess they got a 3D model from the developers and the new berserk anime was also made with CGI and so it makes sense that they also get one from them, it's the easiest way but not that Manga accurate too but at least miura gave his ok lol.

Given the variations between individual panels I'd say this has little value. And by the way, that image contains no faces from the Fantasia arc or from the Black Swordsman arc.


OK but for me it were also in some chapters a little more "longer" so the P1 face isn't this bad for me but it's just my opinion. 

@ RaffoBaffo: TY =) 

@dadoo69 Could be possible, I thought the same.

I will buy them too =). I just found a comparison between guts face over the years. And the faces from the fantasia arc are much more near to the P1 Guts face than the other, so the face is accurate but not for the black swordsman arc. Maybe they chosen it cause we'll get an alternative head for Berserker Armor and it should not look too different.

I have check the video and I would say that you are right there are looking good and beautiful, I agree with that :guts:
In terms of sculpt and paint I have no problem at all :guts:

I just have some trouble with the likeness and accuracy of Miura original design because it's really important to me and I prefer a statue accurate :)
I'm a huge fan of Zodd and if the face was accurate it would be an instant buy for me ;)
I will wait for the Apostle form :guts:



yeah of course, I can understand that. At least Miura gave his "OK" for the Guts Black Swordsman I know. IMO I would also want a little more Berseker Armor Guts in his art-cover pose. We noted it on FB but I don't think they will change it but we will see.

For Guts the base isn't accuracy and the face likeness is not perfect but good
For Zodd Human Form the likeness is just so bad, for me it isn't Zodd at all
For Guts Berserker, the pose, the base, the helmet, the legs are not accurate

I prefer Headlong sculpt because it's much more accurate to Miura design, Prime 1 seems to chose "realistic" way and don't care about the details of Berserk fan (legs, helmet, demon on the base doesn't correspond to the scene).

So for now it's just more expensive and bigger but definitely not better that Hedlong or AOW :)



Maybe for the accuracy but not sculpt and paint. P1 definitely do a better job....
