Berserk Merchandise / Re: Guts 1/6 Max Factory release on 2016
« on: January 06, 2016, 03:47:12 PM »
totally forgot this one is releasing this month i guess there is little interest for it (maybe due to price?)... just got charged for the statue anybody else?

Same here.  I saw the fully painted prototype at New York Comic Con last year.  If it's anything like that, it's gonna be epic as hell.

Price wise, it's pretty on par with AOW, but this statue is much bigger.  I'm more excited for the Femto one though.  I emailed them about it a month ago because preorders haven't gone up yet and they replied "Sorry we have no information for you at this time" lol.

I wouldn't put much thought on the sound effects or the music they used in the teaser.  Many times teasers/trailers are done before assets like that have been created or finalized.  Typically just placeholder stuff.

Anyways, my friend sent me this today.  Kinda cool that Berserk is getting some promotion from Stan Lee (though very likely it is his "team" that posted this).

And his official blog:

I would really like to see more people exposed to Berserk.  Hopefully, this 2016 anime encourages more people to check it out and read the manga!

On a side note, this past weekend, my coworker and his fiance saw the first Berserk movie show up on their Netflix, and without knowing what it was, watched it, then immediately watched movies 2 and 3, and now my coworker is watching the 97 anime, while his fiance is reading the manga!  So even if this anime tanks (which I hope it doesn't, I'm actually super stoked for it as some of you probably know), some good can come out of it regardless!

Well, I am excited!!!  The only bad news about this is the manga hiatus.  I know the general consensus here is death to Studio 4C, but who knows, maybe this time they will stay truer to the source material for the Lost Children arc, especially if it's a longer format (crossing fingers for OVA).  It's been many years since the trilogy, so the team, animation style, and director might very well be different.  So as of right now, I'm excited to see what's to unfold in the next few weeks.

This brings me back to the excitement the first time around when the Anime Saga was announced.  It was around the holidays as well.  GOOD TIMES!

And finally, if all goes well, this means we might get a new Berserk Hirasawa song down the line.  JUST SAYING!  :ubik:

Thanks for the heads up!  Also available to preorder directly from ThreeZero here:

I couldn't help but to buy these little guys got them for $28 each which seem like a good price, I don't normally buy things like this but it was berserk and I couldn't resist.

Good price, and totally worth it!  Great find. =)

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:

Tough call.  I like how big the statue is (I would love to see how it looks next to the 20th anniversary Guts), I'd prefer a different color scheme.  It's too bad they also used the same pose as before, but the size difference is pretty astronomical.  On the fence here...

hi i need advise if there is a way to clean mildew stains, i had an unpleasant surprise when i saw  those stains on some of my statues , i cleaned most of them with just a damp cloth , but to of my figures are still stained, is there a better way to clean those mildew stains?

Hi Hubalo.  So sorry to hear about your statues. =(  How were these statues stored when you discovered the stains?  Were they in the boxes, in a glass case, or out in the open?  I remember back in the day I received some AOW statues and when I opened it it was wet / damp inside.  So I had to make sure to air them out before storage.  I sent a complaint to AOW about it way back when...  This was around 7 years ago or so~

Threezero's facebook just posted this:

It's beautiful.  I love the Medicom RAH figures also, but Medicom definitely went for the more anime / trilogy look.  This Red MARK design is more like the manga, so it's refreshing in its own way.  And, it's rare to find a good manga Guts face, so I have to say I'm really interested in this piece and whatever else Red MARK has to offer!!!

And with the Threezero figures coming out soon... tons of 1/6 figures to choose from nowadays!

Late to the party, but wow, this is so awesome!!!  Great job so far.  And yes, we don't mind these WIP pictures at all!  We love 'em!

Annnnnnd here it is!

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???

Threezero just released pictures of their Heisenberg figure.  It is amazeballs:

Thinkgeek will likely be carrying it, and they frequently publish discount codes for 30% off orders over $150 and up.  Up to 40% on occasion.  No preorder guarantee though.

Next time I see a 40 I'll finally spring for the Golden Age RAH

I love ThinkGeek, and I use that 30% coupon on A TON of stuff from them (namely Game of Thrones stuff, haha), but I have a friend who works there and he said they won't be carrying the Black Swordsman one because the Golden Age RAH sold very poorly for them =(.

What's a good retailer to pre order this from

I've also noticed that Medicom sells their RAH on for pretty cheap if the figure doesn't sell out.  For example their first Guts RAH is still available on amazon for quite cheap (cheaper than for what I paid for initially) with prime shipping too.  So you could take your chances if you don't want to order through any of the Japanese sites.

Here you go. A better picture of his face. :femto:

Hahah, thanks!  Well in this picture the face looks good!!!

Just that face....hrmmm. It's not the 'helmet' portion. Its definitely the inner face that's a bit off.

I agree.  I gave it a A++++ before the 2nd picture was added.  I have to say the inner face (the eyes) are a tad awkward.  I need to see more pics to really say for sure!  Either way, I'm still very excited for this piece.

I completely agree.  A++++!!!!!  Can't wait!

Wow, I have to say the price is more than I thought.  I remember asking the booth when I saw them at SDCC and NYCC and they projected around $800.  But I guess those staff members working the cons don't really make the calls, now do they, lol.  Anyhow, still... a part of me feels like they priced it so high because AOW prices their statues so high, and then based their range on that thinking Berserk fans are used to seeing such high price tags.  I mean, the statue is 1/6 and monstrous but the positioning of the sword has a lot to do with the height.  So even though the statue is pretty awesome, I think it's overpriced.

Now for the FEMTO... THAT one has got me excited!

I was just about to post this!  THIS IS AMAZING NEWS.  Threezero is one of the best!!!  THE BEST!  And their prices are very reasonable.  Their Game of Thrones Tyrion was only $130, and their Ned was $160.  I have their Tyrion figure, and look at the likeness of this bad boy:

Also, here are more pictures of that Tyrion figure:

I loved the Hawk Soldier one.  This is a definite buy!  FYI, reservations start Jan 24th, for 30,000 yen, for release in September 2015.

WOW, Takeya sculpted that Colossal Titan statue?!?!  It would be an absolute dream come true if Takeya sculpted for Berserk.  Makes me wonder who is sculpting these Guts & Femto statues at Max Factory.  Takeya is a legend!!!

And though the price for the Titan may be up there, it's still cheaper than AOW.  Good to hear it has a higher chance of being polystone since this Titan one is.  Although, looking at their "Wonderful Hobby Selection" which is what I assume the Berserk figures will be labeled as, the other figure listed, the "Yamato: Heavy Armament Ver." is a PVC figure.  So I guess it's still up for debate!

Welcome to the boards, GORPAUL87!!!  Great kit!  I LOVE the fact that you installed the lighting system for the eyes!!!  Man, when I get mine done, it's a necessity now!  Can't have it any other way after yours and Joa's!
