I can pay $300 for what looks like foam with a stick shoved in it, awesome.

They are digging their own graves. Art of War is making it easy for us not to respect them as a company...
Next in line - Pippin and Judeau as paper weights? Berserk is not exactly suitable for children, and they're making toys now...

What?  It's like..   three feet long?   :schierke:

The blade at least looks nice but the foam parts NEED more than just the stabilizing laminate to look non-crap.  Really, really, REALLY need at least a couple layers of polyurethane dip or something.  If this is the final product I don't know what they are thinking.

Yo Turk! *waves*

Chibi Dragonslayer! All soft like a plushie. You could hug or sleep with it and not get hurt. That being said, at 23,000 Yen aka $240 USD approx plus tax, this is still expensive. In retrospect a 1:1 scale sword of Skull Knight made outta resin/ fiber glass was only about a $100 more than the price of this product.

the only good looking thing in this item is the box...

At least Farnese won't hurt herself with this sword!  :farnese:

If it at least had been a 1:1 size-wise itīd been pretty cool either way. Over-all, making small replicas of big fucking things isnt a terribly attractive idea IMO. Like this its just boring and childish AND not even decent production quality.

Man, this is so sad. Art of War is done. As stupid as this is, I can't believe they're even charging that much for it.

"It was much too big to be called a sword massive,thick,heavy and far too rough. Indeed it was like a heap of raw iron"

I think its great for those Larp people who are new into the thing and don't make their own weapons (yet).
But as a fan of Berserk I'd stay far away from it.

It's lame, but I'd still probably buy it if it was cheaper. Not going to drop 300$ on that shit though.
