Berserk Merchandise / Re: Prime 1 launches a Berserk line
« on: October 15, 2017, 02:19:45 PM »
"...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++. 

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.


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

If you say so...

I mean.. Shouldn't they create what they want to do? You're not forced to buy it, and if you want a more exact transition from 2D to 3D then you could always go with First4figures, GECCO, Art of War, Headlong, Max Factory, probably Tsume once they start pumping out some pieces or numerous unlicensed products. Saying that something is ugly is perfectly fine mate, more power to you (maybe a bit rude to people who actually like it, but you're not obligated to cater to our feelings), but don't speak for the majority of the fan- / customer base as if your opinion reflects theirs. In the end Black Swordsman Guts has sold very well and their Berserker flew off their shelves. :iva: Don't know how well Zodd has done so far, but obviously not as good as the other two.

Sure, they can release what they want. I'm just saying that I'm not pleased with what I'm seeing, if you're happy with their works, good for you.
I know I won't spend money on something that is not accurate.

Yes, thanks for sharing those pictures.
Now we can have a closer look at how they've fucked up Guts headsculpts (he looks real ugly) and Zodd face. But I imagine that's P1 "realistic" touch...
They don't understand (or care) that people wants something accurate to the original material, and not their own take on the characters.
And we're talking about statues that cost more than $1000...

I've been playing to Cuphead during the week (I'm at the third world). I have nothing bad to say about this game, just a bit hard but that's fine with me.
I'll start Nioh first DLC (just bought the season pass) when I can and I'm also looking forward to The Evil Within 2 next week.

Nice looking statue. I like the dynamic pose... but damn... those headsculpts... not only his neck have a problem, but look also at the grinning face (that looks like the Joker) and that ridiculous wide open mouth...

Managed to get an SNES Classic this morning. It's uh, exactly what you'd expect!  But I couldn't resist some of my favorite games of all time are on there: Super Metroid, Mario World, Zelda 3, Final Fantasy VI.

The nostalgia bit is somewhat lost on me, because I've played most of these games regularly since I was a kid. But I hope to be able to mod it (like I did with the NES Classic) to add more games, like Actraiser, Chrono Trigger, and ultimately, games that SHOULD have come over to the US but never did: Front Mission and Seiken Densetsu 3 (oh yeah, and to get rid of fucking Super Ghouls 'n Ghosts - gross).

I got mine two days ago. Fucking cool to get back to these classics... but wait... what did you just said about Super Ghouls'n Ghosts ? Why is it "gross" ? It's the best one in the entire series.

Listening to "Life Time" of Rollins Band. It's quite intense.

I was listening to "Weight" these last days.

Part 13 felt a bit like part 12, but there was some more interesting scenes this time. The arm wrestling scene was awesome (Mr.C. literally crushed Jason Voorhees' face). kyle MacLachlan really do a great job, he looks pure evil. And Audrey Horne is out of her mind, there is something really strange about her.

I'm not sure about that but maybe Prime 1 take directly the 3D sculpt from new anime without any modifications ?
If I'm correct it could be a reason why it's not accurate to manga and Miura artwork :guts:

Or maybe they are simply unable to sculpt Guts face correctly ? It's not accurate and doesn't look like his face in the manga.
The same goes for their Zodd head sculpt.

I've watched part 12 yesterday. Well...That scene with Gordon and the french woman made me have the same face as Albert during the whole scene... like we are only 6 parts before the ending and they are able to add this kind of boring scene (but some are going to call this "genius" because it's Lynch)... That, and I want to see Jacoby getting skull-crushed by the woodsmen while he's broadcasting (Like Sarah Palmer said: "And men are coming...), I can't stand his scenes anymore.

Headlong Berserker guts looks better in my opinion

I agree with you.
Everything looks off on this one, the size of the Dragonslayer, the mantle, the armor itself (look at his legs...).

Is anybody else bothered by Tammy's distracting wiggle-walk? I wonder if the actress was specifically directed by Lynch to do that. It just doesn't look natural.

I guess she's exaggerating it a little bit but I wouldn't say I'm bothered by it in my case... it's mesmerizing... :slan:
I've read a lot of hate for her character but personally, I like her.

I forgot to mention it:The locust/frog have a pointy nose. So, it could very well be "The Little Boy" or "The Jumping Man" from FWWM.

Could be, I guess. It just seems like an awful lot of time to focus on the birth of NOT the main villain.

Yes, I agree with that too. We will see soon enough anyway (I hope lol). But the "process" of the egg/creature/first host is really fucked up (for Twin Peaks I mean), I wasn't expecting something like that.

It made sense by the time of Fire Walk with Me too, since we already knew by the time of the S2 finale that Evil Coop had possessed Good Coop's body. It just makes EXTRA sense now.

Yes, I also thought about about S2 finale while typing my reply to your quote, but yeah, you got what I meant. ;)

I saw this confusing some others too, but to me I mean -- who else would it be? Bob's was the only face we saw in that cluster of eggs, even though his "essence" looked a little different.

I know that this episode is focusing a lot on BOB but what if they are misleading us and the creature is MIKE ? The size of the egg, etc... it's too different to be BOB's one in my opinion. Also... look at the "egg" with BOB's face coming out of Evil Cooper, it looks the same as in the vomit. I mean, the woodsmen didn't removed a creature from his body, they removed the same object.

In another Fire Walk with Me scene, Philip Jeffries points at the real Cooper, asking the group "Who do you think this is, there?" Which is likely an allusion to the scenario we're in now, with evil Coop inhabiting his body, and Jeffries is lost in time.

Which is all to say that despite the seeming incoherentness, this is a pretty well planned series.

Rewatching that scene, I remember it but I forgot about Jeffries pointing at Cooper and saying: "Who do you think this is, there?".
You're right about that... it all make sense now !


I'll take some time to rewatch the 8 parts and continue reading TSHOTP during next week... in the waiting of part 9.

The scenes that creeped me out the most in part 8 were the woodsmen "assaulting" the car ("Lincoln" scene in the radio station too) and the bug/frog creature crawling inside the girl's mouth...
The question is: who did she became the host of ? The egg that hatched looked like any other that we could see inside "Mother"s vomit, while BOB's one showed his face clearly and was way bigger.
Seeing NIN performing "She's Gone Away" was pretty cool. The lyrics had some sense here.

Thank you for sharing. I've never seen this one... that golden orb...

Damn you! I almost ordered the three of them. I bailed and got only the young animal and volume 39.

And now you're regretting.  :iva:

Part 7 was so damn good. Especially loved the scenes involving Diane and the one with Cooper disarming "The Spike".

Someone on Reddit asked, and I can confirm: Grunbeld's hammer bends BEFORE the DS hits.



Upon closer inspection, it actually appears to bend multiple times in this scene. I'd call this the last straw, but  :ganishka:

That's what I noticed yesterday when I saw your gif.  :ganishka:

Well....we finished the first episode and I'm so glad this popped up on sk.  I don't frequent many other forums and this group is solid in intelligent criticism.  I am in love.  The characters, which I admit will take time to memorize, are so unique and alive.  The Lynch typical music to the rich landscape. The only dated issue I saw was the roadhouse fight scene.    :ganishka:  Very excited to see where this goes.

Glad that you like it. Yes, the Roadhouse fight scene is very 80's.  :guts:

Yep. I've been saying so for years: getting to Elfhelm and finally having Casca regain her mind is the biggest turning point of the series. We're reaching the mountain's summit and preparing for a frenetic descent towards the end of the story. Up until now, Miura has mostly been opening new "threads", by which I mean he has been expanding the story with new elements. Some threads were tied, but not too many. But soon we will switch gears and he will start closing the story down and tying all those threads. Some new elements may still be introduced, but comparatively less, and with a shorter lifespan. Meanwhile we will be getting closure for more and more things. Major apostles will die, major mysteries will be revealed, major developments will take place... All focusing towards a single point: the ending.

For the long-time fan, this moment should actually be bittersweet.

I'll take what you quoted earlier this month.

Quote from: Miura
"Lord Marksman and Vanadis" and "The Ambition of Oda Nobuna". I've enjoyed reading them bit by bit during my meals. Now I've reached the final volume of the light novels. Such an empty feeling. (д`)

That sum up very well how we will feel when it will ends.

That's just fucking awful... they really have no shame to release that kind of thing ?

I recently watched the first season of Attack on Titan, I was impressed by the quality and wanted to see more after each episode.
In the case of this abomination, I stopped wasting my time after the fifth episode of the first season.

To be honest, the only good thing about that series is the new artworks that Miura have done for the blu-ray releases.

It didn't bothered personally. I don't watch a series like Twin Peaks expecting great CGI effects.
I loved what I've seen so far.
