You are absolutely sure your picture represents the right messurement?

I am absolutely not absolutely sure it's the right measurements. :iva:

Though there were 3-4 people from the con who all reported the same height, and if it really is 75 cm then I'm fairly sure. Could be that the images aren't compatible, but they look to be from a similar enough angle to me.

Compare their thighs and shoulders, it's pretty much the same size, with F4F Guts coming in at a little bit smaller (which is to be expected since P1 Guts is a big 1/4). Keep in mind that F4F's piece have a large part of his body not visible directly from in front of the statue.

In the end please take it with a grain of salt until the official full unveiling of him from F4F.  :puck:

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.

I definitely think he's gonna be more expensive than $600, however $1000 is too much IMO. Then again, their Bowser did end up at $699, and he is way shorter and far less complicated. His price REALLY shocked me since casting material isn't that expensive, and the main money sink during the production is definitely the painting process. With every one of his parts being more or less monochromatic you'd expect that he would be less expensive, but there might be several factors that I have not considered fully.

Here you go if you if you wanna see him next to the other two:

@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.

There's been a lot of Band of the Falcon insignias / emblems and I have another one for you.

When I see the symbol for the Jedi Order from Star Wars (right) I always think about Berserk (left), it feels like a straight up sci-fi interpretation or a re-imagining of sorts.

How do you feel about rumors of Denis doing the next Dune? It's again another movie that doesn't need a follow up and yet, it'll happen anyway ... so given that predicament (as a fan), is Denis the best man for the job? 

Similar to when Studio4C announced plans to adapt the Golden Age into a movie trilogy, I think cramming Dune into a feature-length film is a bad idea. Villeneauve has proven himself as a capable guy for scifi, but Dune is like, my baby. If anything, I hope him being attached will draw more people to the novel, because as popular as it is, I don't think it's ever really gotten its due (really, not different from Berserk in this respect).

It hit me on the subway this morning that perhaps it's not as obvious as it seems and that maybe it was still all orchestrated by Wallace? Luv could have killed K when she had the chance before swimming back to the car, but she didn't. Maybe she had orders not to kill him so it's orchestrated that K kills her (I'm shrugging this off as I type it cos it sounds ridiculous) and so both, Deckard + K lead him to the child he's been looking for. It's a big big stretch but Wallace talking about how the meeting between Deckard and Rachel was orchestrated was a bit bonkers and I didn't see coming.

Nah, I don't buy that. Why would Ana have twisted the knife? She was going for the kill. Furthermore, there's no signal that it's the case, so it'd be purely hypothetical. I think Wallace just fucked up.

Walter... I am interested in seeing how much of a lasting influence Blade Runner 2049 has on the Theatrical Medium over the next 30 years.

Probably not much. I enjoyed the hell out of it, but it was undeniably derivative in terms of what it offered as a movie experience, compared to the original movie. Now in terms of scifi movie storytelling, perhaps it'll raise the bar a bit, something like what Children of Men did at the time.

As Blade Runner 2049 was a near flawless film with the exception of some lingering shots

Come on... near flawless? That's a little over the top. And if lingering shots were your problem, then I don't know how you got through the first movie. It's far more slow moving in terms of cinematography.

And I'm not saying art-house films like 2049 shouldn't be made

Blade Runner 2049 wasn't an art-house film by any stretch of the definition. It's a Columbia Pictures movie distributed by Sony and Warner Bros. It's just about as mainstream as you can get.

As Blade Runner 2049 was a near flawless film with the exception of some lingering shots its just that I don't think that their is mass appeal by the movie going audiences to see films like this anymore. And I'm not saying art-house films like 2049 shouldn't be made I think that they should as this film has layers and layers of presence that current scifi films don't have or no longer do and that's draw you into the film world and cause you to get lost in it.

Great photo IncantatioN, looking really good! Both you and the statue. :slan: And F4F's Guts is definitely 1/4 scale, sorry if I made it sound like I thought otherwise.

No matter what, 75 cm is huge, and definitely impressive for a 1/4 piece. I just hope that DirectDK is wrong about the $1k price tag :puck: Would feel quite uncharacteristic coming from F4F.. It would be very heavy indeed, at least with P1's piece landing on the same price point.

Being a Berserk product, we know prices will be inflated unfortunately because of the standard AOW set but for that scale and pose, it's cheaper than what AOW would offer.

I'm not sure I would agree with this though, F4F usually delivers affordable statues (in the context of the statue collecting hobby). I would challenge anyone to find a comparable piece to P1's Zodd and to a slightly lesser extent Guts at their price points, they're definitely expensive, but you get a whole lot of statue for your money. The Berserk license seems to be pretty expensive, however I think AoW statues' price mainly comes down to their manufacturing process and maybe a price inflation since they had more or less monopoly on the market for a good while. That statement is quite unsubstantiated though and I'm not saying it's the case, just speculating.

I liked Edge of Tomorrow too and agree with the both of your perspectives on it. Cruise gets a bad rep in the US and not a lot of people are interested in watching his films but he's a megastar outside the US.

Thanks for the extensive write-up Walter.


I donít need to explain to this crowd how influential Blade Runner is, and thus, what a terrifying feat it is to pick up on its trail and attempt to make a new story truly matter. These were some big shoes to fill. So I appreciate how well this movie straddled the line of being a sequel while also being its own thing. I went into this whole endeavor pretty much grossed out by the idea, was somewhat softened by the early reviews being out-of-this-world, and about 10 minutes into the movie, I got it. I understood why that world deserved to be revisited.

I felt the same way while it was being made, before the promos came out. Even with the promos I couldn't help but be dissatisfied with the choice of casting Ryan in it. I love Denis but to have one of the two writers be someone who did the story for Alien Covenant was another red flag.

How do you feel about rumors of Denis doing the next Dune? It's again another movie that doesn't need a follow up and yet, it'll happen anyway ... so given that predicament (as a fan), is Denis the best man for the job?

Kís a vessel for the narrative, and a great punching bag (did Ford write into his contract that if he works with Gosling, he mandates a certain number of punches to the face?), but not much else. And thatís a bummer ó but that was inarguably his role: He was supposed to be a second-class citizen who represses his feelings and simply obeys. I suppose they chose the right actor! He was rationed precisely one emotion, he used it well, and thatís all she wrote.

2) Was Wallace, Mr. I Own The Fucking Stars, really going to miss the fact that his nominally protected caravan was effortlessly dispatched and NOT track them down? Isnít going straight to the one theyíre trying to hide, just MAYBE not the brightest idea?

Yeah, that's a hard one. It hit me on the subway this morning that perhaps it's not as obvious as it seems and that maybe it was still all orchestrated by Wallace? Luv could have killed K when she had the chance before swimming back to the car, but she didn't.

I was taken aback when I first saw it in person because I wondered how they dealt with the weight of Guts diving forward with his weight, the armor and the sword. That aspect impressed me the most and then I also saw other statues from Sideshow that had crazy poses with characters resting all their weight on one leg and so forth. It dawned on me that I was so used to see AOWs statues and their style, it's never as fluid looking or dynamic as these because of the materials they use or the weight of it all.

Vein-filled neck is mostly hidden underneath the cape and isn't noticeable from a distance. A minor attention to detail they left out for the DS was that the handle is short and the blade looks puffy if you look at it sideways. 

Being a Berserk product, we know prices will be inflated unfortunately because of the standard AOW set but for that scale and pose, it's cheaper than what AOW would offer.

The exclusive version with the purple base was on display. Base looked good and I was more a fan of the pose. The pictures on page one are higher quality and detailed than mine but mine are pictured straight if it helps -






As for the comparison picture, I feel like the F4F figure should be a bit bigger than it looks in the comparison, but it's hard to match since it's just a photoshop mockup.  It truly did look MASSIVE in person, and it is indeed 1/4 scale.  Actually I've seen both Prime1 and F4f Guts statues in person now (Prime1 at SDCC) and I think they will match each other pretty closely.

Definitely closer to 1/4 or 1/4 for sure.

Zurth, if it helps, here's a comparison photo of the statue with me next to it. I'm 5'9 if that helps
