[Official]: Art of War - Statue Request Thread
« on: March 02, 2013, 05:51:56 PM »
Hey all.

If any of you have been keeping up with the recent Void/Griffith diorama thread, you have probably noticed that we are all pretty damn upset about the constant remakes and inflated prices that AOW is offering.  Please look through that thread to get up to speed.

The main thing I would like to bring your attention to is this:

Quote from: Art of War
We have received some customers request ask us to re-create new scenes and new characters, that is what we always want to do. However, as we have done some sub characters in the past which we believe you already knew them, the result is that they were not sold well and brought us very big lost. Our situation is not good these years, and we may never release a product over 100 pieces again. We have to be careful about planning new things, even if we want to, we will not do if we are not sure it can be sold out safely. Therefore we really thank you for giving the space in your forum, and if you can convener 50 people to ask for the same character or the same scene, it will be a really useful voice for us to do as you wish. That is a power which can only be recalled by your customers.

So this is where we can try to do this.  Now we've had 2 "AOW wish" thread before, and even one of them was started by AOW themselves (yup, they posted on this forum years back).

AOW thread
Recent thread


Without getting the topic derailed, can we try and suggest realistic / probable suggestions that we can convince AOW to make?  I will start the list off with some ideas that I want, and will tally them up if you agree.  If you suggest another statue, I will add it to the list as well.

So many characters, but my wish would be flora with Schierke and earth golems (plus the tree house), or Schierke at the front door of the tree house looking at the band (volume24 chap4 p11). The idea of Schierke teaching spells is good, like in this picture
    How about this sweet one or

"Guts
- spirit of the berserker armor (dog)"

I've actually sent multiple requests of this to AoW in the past... I'd buy it.

A big thanks to Derek for this thread!

Here is my list of wishes :

Carcus
- in the arms of the female demon before his death

Flora
- with Skull Knight, something sweet
- with Schierke, something sweet like the color picture in volume 25, where they are sewing something together

Gambino
- vs Guts, on top being impaled

Godot
- forging Guts' sword (think sparks)

Guts
- vs Griffith in snow, Golden Age

Irvine
- playing his instrument in the forest, by his campfire, while Sonia listens, in volume 29

Judo
- with Casca, on the horse in the eclipse
- with Casca, on top of her dying by the flogs


Mozgus Disciples
- any or all of them (for a set of all of them, i could deal with 1/15 scale)

Roshinu
- apostle form
- with Jill, in a sweet pose, hugging or something similar

Schierke
- riding Guts' back over the shoulder during Berserker form
- with Farnese & Casca, casting a spell on the tree stump while they watch amazed, color picture in volume 27

My suggestions

Casca
- with Guts spirit of the berserker armor (dog) (when the spirit of the berserker is eating and raping casca). I am not crazy, mad, disturb...  but i really love this scene!  EPIC



Farnese totally nude
- with Guts lay down, riding dragon slayer  (i really love this scene too)   EPIC






Eclipe Diorama
- Guts slaying his arm with Borkoff in front of griffith and casca + Apostle who are holding Casca   EPIC






Black dogs knights on horse
- With Wyald (human form) on horse, holding dead bodies of the young girls     EPIC






I know those scenes are ultra violent... but when i saw them for the first time, it was breathtaking. In French, "ce n'est pas très fleur bleue" !!

Thanks everyone for your contributions and votes so far!!! :ubik:

   

I totally love those 2 shots too.  I already mentioned them in my list earlier (but did not post the pictures).  So far, that first one seems to be popular with the folks here...

Stardustgatzu, wow, you got some graphic tastes!!!  Hahahah.  I added your requests to the list, lol.

You guys should just suck up to this Berserkberserk guy, he makes some great statues... Maybe he'd be willing to take on a side project?

I think I can agree with that. AOW had their chance, our time, and your money. Support someone else that can actually back up their products with quality.

Having some private artists doing side projects is pretty neat, fortunately there are several very talented people. But they can't do hundreds of pieces, unless they find a company to make the job (if they can have the copyright).
Another idea would be to submit WIP or final projects to Art of War and ask them to produce it. Don't know if it has ever been talked in SK forum.
So for now we can only suggest AoW statue request.

That's very true, I'm guilty as well of not contributing in this topic but I'm slowly re-reading the manga and up to volume 13 for statue ideas and been busy at work the past 2 weeks. I'll hit up this space soon and urge fellow members to do so too.
At the end of time, a moment will come when just one man remains. Then the moment will pass. Man will be gone. There will be nothing to show that we were ever here... but stardust.

sorry I dont belive AoW, but ok.

I want:

- some new guts berserk armor statue
- new casca statue like episode of birth NOT hawk soldiers
- maybe new diorama (femto fuck casca, guts and casca naked in hug, griff on zodd)
- new black swordman statue - Guts atack pose with aim hand canon(open)
- new god hand

but very important for me is PRICE for now max price for good statue: 20.000-30.000 yen ...

and if re-release: hey! I want fire and dragon ...( again first price NOT new 2-3 time expensive)

Hahah, thanks Stardustgatzu =P.  And thanks for everyone's new contributions.  The first post has been updated with the new votes.

Slightly off topic, but one of the big issues with AOW has been their absolutely poor likeness when it comes to character faces.  Well, AOW just released pictures of their new Gantz statue, after their first statue had received very negative reviews, and this time around they worked under the supervision of the author, Hiroya Oku, and I kid you not... the face actually looks legit.  It's the best likeness I've seen for an AOW product, be it Gantz or Berserk.  So perhaps, they are really learning from their shortcomings and trying hard to do a better job with the faces.  So, let's keep the faith guys.  Constructive criticism and feedback can lead somewhere if we stick with it.

I don't recall how many times I sent them e-mails regarding new dioramas/characters, their prices, responding to their questionaires, etc...
So... maybe some of us are a bit jaded about asking AOW some things that they won't do anyway...?

And if they really agree to do something out of this thread... I don't see them doing the scene where the Beast of Darkness is raping Casca...  :schierke:
