Berserk Merchandise / Re: OUCH! $3,000.00 Guts on Horseback(Ebay)

Surely it's not the same one as this one, is it?

That's the model kit for the statue.  Same scale, but of course, it's unassembled and unpainted.  Animeplus has been sold out of that thing for years though.  That store should really remove the listing.  I guess they like bragging that they actaully once carried it =P.  I've seen that exact same model kit go on ebay/yahoo auction japan for $600+.

It's all a rarity thing.  The prepainted completed statue (the one on ebay) retailed for 31,290 yen, which is about $300.  But that was wayyy back in the day and since they didn't make too many (#300 I believe??), and since it was one of the first statues art-of-war made for Berserk, the value on that statue has gone WAYYY UP (as you can tell by the auction =P).

Did you pay that much for it? Oh and what a sweet arse room you have.

Thanks for the compliment on the room! =)  I really need to move to a bigger place though.  I literally have no more wallspace ANYWHERE.  I want to put up more posters and stuff but no room!  After I get out of college, hopefully I'll be able to.

Anyways, no I didn't pay that much.  I'll personal message you about the price because I've actually bought a few things from that seller on ebay before, and he's a really nice guy.  I don't want to spoil his auction by letting everyone here know how much I paid for mine.

Pity It cannot be seen closer, but it does look nice.

Here's 2 pics of mine =P, hehe.  i took the pictures the first and only time i've removed the statue from it's box.  i'm too scared too leave it out right now.  my apt is not big enough to put it anywhere.  like the seller said, it's on the same scale as the other statues (unlike the skull knight hose & the griffith mf horse).  the thing is 18 inches tall and 20+ diagonal.  maybe later when i move into a nicer place i can afford a cool case to put it in.

the color turned out really bad when i took the pictures so i just made the pic b&w.  stuff sometimes looks better in b&w anyways. =P  it's pretty much what i do whenver a pic i take turns out bad (which is often =P).

and if anyone like to know, AOW now will sale directly to US customers.... the only thing we need to pay extra is the $25 bank charge for them to received foreign wires......

this is GOOD news.  i wonder if we can order older berserk statues from them as well?  that would be awesome!  or even the limited edition statues too...

i think going this way just might be better than ebay and all the other ways we spend our hard-earned money on STATUES!!

haha he said gatta. looks nice though

heheh, yah, i asked him about that, he told me he meant to type Guts (the "a" is right next to the "s" on the keyboard).  he'll probably change it eventually =P.

he also told me if anyone wants the stencil just email him (i believe his email address is on the site)

a friend of mine loves to be creative and try new things, and so he decided to customize his gba sp with a berserk picture (of Guts).

check it out on his site!

Berserk Merchandise / Re:BERSERK Demo to be release in Japan!!!

And the 1gig was once you unrared it that was the size of the iso file.

Ahhh... IC, yah, I sorta thought 200 megs was a bit too small for the game, but I burned it on a DVDR nevertheless. =P

But yes, if someone knows how to read japanese, a translation of the controller screen would be nice.  Like exhumethecorpse, I figured out the controls but who knows what else we're missing.

It's the demo alright!

I just finished playing it!  Btw, it's not 1 gig, it's a little less than 200 megs (at least the one posted on bittorrent is).

It's great!  By holding L1 and pressing one of the 4 face buttons, you can use your canon, knifes, arrows, bombs (like the dreamcast one), and by holding L2 and then pressing one of the 4 face buttons, you can summon your friends (Serpico, Isihdoro, Puck, Scherik).  I thought that was a nifty addition.

The sword is uber fun to slice people with too.  There's a good deal of variation to the swinging of the sword... though I haven't figured it all out yet.  One thing is cool is somehow you can run up an enemy and then stab your sword down vertically through the neck through the body, and then you flip over.  IT'S AWESOME.

Well, I don't want to spoil anything else.  I'll let you guys experience it for yourselves.  I HOPE it comes out in the US, mostly because there's a lot of dialogue during the game and it'll be great to know what they are saying!

Berserk Merchandise / Re:what's an "artist proof" art-of-war statue?
« on: June 23, 2004, 09:58:22 AM »
Ahhh... thanks!  Another forum member PMed me also and told me the same thing you did, so I'm pretty sure that's right. =)  I'm glad then, because I'll be getting a few artist proof statues in the next few days/week.  When I get them I'll post some pictures!  I can't wait!

For all those that have the skullknight on horse statue (or to all those that might know this answer anyways), is the statue the same scale as all the other statues (like normal skullknight, femto, black swordsman, casca, etc etc)?

I'm thinking, if the skullknight horse statue IS the same scale, it must be PRETTY HUGE...

thanks ahead of time for your help.


Berserk Merchandise / what's an "artist proof" art-of-war statue?
« on: June 17, 2004, 08:12:06 PM »

Just wondering if anyone knows what an "artist proof" statue is compared to the normal Japanese releases...

Are they different/better in quality?  Same or maybe worse???

Any information would be greatly appreciated!

I've noticed that lots of cool berserk stuff go up for auction on Yahoo Auctions Japan.  But i can't read japanese nor use the search function.  Is there any way to view yahoo auctions japan in english?
