Berserk Merchandise / Re: Prime 1 launches a Berserk line

Any news on when we'll see SK on horse?  Surprised how many pieces they've shown ahead of him.

Tough to say. The official facebook P1 collectors page has been mum on him, though the sample image of the base is bumped every few weeks. The group was hoping for an unveiling at wonderfest, but instead they showed off some other stuff.

With how complex the base is looking, I'm guessing this will be among their most expensive statues. I'm talking P1 Jetfire Optimus and Wonder Woman on her horse.

Currently pre-ordered P1 Berserker Armor and Femto.

I promised myself that I would wrap things up after SK on his horse, but I really like the Beast of Casca's dream statue. The fact that they got it out so quickly is amazing. Doggo guts was one of my favorite things over the last few years. If the price is right, its going to be very hard to pass this one up.

Was very happy with the pricing. Ended up with the bloody EX as well.

Competition is always good and in the end, the fans win.

Guts F4F is going up for Pre-order starting Friday April 6th. Pricing for the regular and EX is still pending and will be revealed at the time of pre-order. The word "expensive" is being thrown around for the EX.

I've been very temped to Get the P1 Black Swordsman statue. The only thing that has held me back is the fact that I wasn't happy with Guts face and whatever the thing with the horns is taking up so much space. I wish they could have used a main Apostle instead of the generic looking monster. Overall, the statue has it all, Puck, the Demon Fetus and the Beast of Darkness. Its hard to beat having so many elements in one statue. I wish I could own all of the P1 statues, but my wife would kill me.  :magni:

They are dancing around the price so much, almost like Alex doesn't want to say it, but its probably going to total close to 1k for the EX (shipping included: The statue comes in 2 separate boxes) for people buying in the USA. The PO has been pushed to early April apparently.

I have been following the F4F statue for months now. It will finally be available for pre-order in March.

Alex of F4F has been open about Berserk statues coming in at a "premium," cost. They also seemed to have pushed back the Guts pre-order timeline to avoid overlap with the Dark Souls Ornstein statue, which cost $599. This move seems to predict that the EX version of Guts is probably going to be one of their most expensive statues. They are very mum about the price, despite fan club members asking about it. I wouldn't be surprised if the EX version is starting to edge towards 1k. They do understand their their customer base isn't the same as say Prime-1, its why they refuse to make a Skull Knight on his horse, because it would exceed the price of their target audience, as Chockles told one poster. So the mystery remains. How much for the base model and how much for the EX?

I'm probably going to go for the EX Guts F4F and see what P1 can do with their version of Skull Knight. I'm also debating picking up P1 Femto as well.

Berserk Miscellaneous / Hardcover editions of Berserk?
« on: November 01, 2017, 02:25:48 AM »
I just picked up the 35th anniversary hardcover edition of Otomo's manga masterpiece Akira. It makes me wish that berserk would get the same treatment.

I wonder if there has been any talk from Dark Horse of releasing full size hardbound editions of Berserk? We all know its nowhere near finished, but Berserk is the type of manga that I would love to display on my bookshelf with the rest of my hardbound books.

Anyone know of anything in the works?

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.

I'm not sure if anyone has played the Japanese version, because most English dubs back in the 1990's took huge liberties with translations and I'm sure this game is no different. Still, I always found it interesting that when a temporarily sane Casca spoke, she described herself as, "dreaming a really bad dream."

The Mandragora possession was only a temporary cure, but it did give us some insight into what was going on with the sane part of Casca's mind.

All this is speculation of course and none of us will know what happens until she's cured, but if her mind is locked in a dream, or tricked into thinking that its dreaming, then the gallery/corridor of dreams will make more sense.

I've been following Berserk like many of the people here, for a good portion of my life. I'm beyond excited in what the next few chapters will no doubt bring (the possible restoration of Casca).

Hey Everyone,

Now that we are so close to meeting the King of the Flower Storm, I was rereading the transcript from episode 344 and noticed this sentence.

Then Kuka says "is to bring her sanity back?" but Schierke continues "is to find a peaceful land for the cursed woman". Kuka says that now that she thinks of it, she's heard that the King of the Flower Storm can get deep inside somebody's mind using a "gallery/corridor of dreams", and so that it might be possible to cure Casca.

It made me think back to this scene from Sword of the Berserk (Berserk Millennium Falcon Arc: Chapter of the Flowers of Oblivion) on the Sega Dreamcast. https://youtu.be/N32QQqKOf5I?t=6436

I believe its the only time where Casca has reverted back to normal for a period of time. Correct me if I'm wrong, since there are some insanely knowledgeable people here on this board (Aazealh, Walter, etc.).

Sword of the Berserk was written by Miura, so its canon in regards to the main storyline, right?

So it seems dreams, or waking Casca up from her "bad" dream is the key to healing her.

Kinda neat if the hints were there all the way back in 1999.

It is possible that the pirate ship could have an offspring of the sea god inside it (mini sea god). That could explain why it was able attack the pirates off of the island, while the sea god is trapped within the island and the whole rock climbing phenomenon.
