Its not really limited to 15 pieces. They just took some of the statues that didnīt sell and are trying a new gimmick to try to justify the ridiculous price tag.

to me it just screams desperation


from what i understood, the ones who preordered the puck version will, get, both the claws and the puck?

When  I received the email I was extremely under whelmed and kinda sad with AOW  :judo:

Yeah....seeing this new "limited" version does not inspire confidence.  Seeing more pictures of it just affirms my believe that the pose is so freakin' weird....seriously wtf is he doing if it weren't for the title, no sense of motion whatsoever.  Won't even go into that face of Guts.....

Desperation....I have to agree with you guys, very desperate indeed.
AOW noob.

I think you all may be right about the desperation to sell the item but I am loving the add on. I preordered my canon slice with Extra blood effect on:
1. The Deck
2. The whole body/armor
3. The Canon muzzle and Guts arm
4. The dragon slayer
5. Guts face and back neck
6. Guts cape inside and out
7. Guts leather pouches/packs

I almost wanted to retract my request for extra blood effect to the face due to the horrible paint jobs of face blood on Guts in the birth ceremony chapter statues. Only the first two iterations of that statue were horrible as far as paint goes. I hope AOW doesn't botch the face blood for my canon slice. I'm a noob to AOW so I am giddy about this statue even though I agree with most critics about the face sculpt and other gripes with the pose. Oh and of course the price blows. Doesn't make me giddy one bit.

I'm getting a lazy Susan for this bad boy. They are providing Japanese customers with the lazy Susan but said it's too much trouble to ship international. This pose would like killer whilst rotating on display.

Isn't that the entire statue? 
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.

Lol sure is. I wanted to be thorough with AOW and I just copied that list from the email with them.

If they bought the product it means they liked it enough in the first place.

Ordered mine before I decided to downsize.  Arrived on Saturday, and it's a pretty impressive piece.  Pose is indeed uninspired, but the tons of little details make up for it. 
At this size and quality, I'd say a fair retail price would be around half the AoW price.  I'm not burning with regret though, it's the best Guts piece I own and will probably be the only one I keep.
Will post detail pics if anyone is interested.

Please do. I'm not going to get this one, but I'm curious about the quality after 20th anniversary masterpiece.

Thank you! Amazing piece, the quality is superb. I still don't like the pose though, but considering to get a new Skull Knight.

not a fan of the pose but the statue looks very good overall, congrats and thank you for the pics!  :ubik:
I like the scars on his face but what about his ears? Are they really so difficult to sculpt? they didn't even try... :mozgus:

Well I couldn't stand the temptation when they offered me one a week back (though to my understanding mine was the last one left....but I still see one for sale hah) since I have all the major AOW Guts pieces.  Came in yesterday and despite all the criticism for AOW, I can't think of another figure company I've dealt with that is on par in terms of detail, paint, quality of resin material, and packaging/presentation.  These all come at a premium I'm sure along with the limited releases....AOW just needs to choose their projects better down the line and not fall back on repaints all day.  The statue looks great as one might expect, but the pose is weird still and I still think if no one told me what Guts was doing, I would be wondering what this pose is supposed to be. 
AOW noob.

You just got owned. Repaint bloody version. http://www.art-of-war.jp/product/611

Color changes of this repainting.
1.Giving more redness to the inside of the cloak, and adding some black stains on the outside to make more contrast between the inside and outside.
2. Much more fresh flowing blood be added, which changed the whole statue to be a bloody imagine, especially on the following parts:
- Dragon Slayer is repainted to a gory sword to express the fierce battle with the monsters.
- More dripping blood effects were added on the armor, the Arm Cannon, Guts’s face, leg and feet, and also the deck base.
- This item is repainted to a red bloody imagine. Compare to the previous bluish blood version, the repainting works represent that Guts is also wounded and it is a really hard battle.




I think is those unsold units
