Looking at the pose or the tip of that cape design it appears to be a repaint of their 2011/ Backlighting version, but I could be wrong.
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.

Hey guys, could someone explain art of war to me?  I've seen the name and the things they make for years and want to know if any money they bring in goes to miura?  I plan to start collecting in the next year or 2 once I finish my other tats and get a nice klipsch set up.

They have a license for their merchandise, so some money does go to Miura at some point. We don't know the details of the contract though.

Anyway, when you eventually decide to buy some merch, make sure to study the market first. AOW's released some very nice pieces over the years, but overall their products are very expensive, too much for what they're worth most of the time. Recently the community has been very excited over potential alternatives like this gigantic Guts statue by Max Factory.

I saw that one!  I expected a price of 800 bucks until I saw it didn't have art of war tied to it.  That's the tough part.  Aow is so expensive, but there isn't much else out there if you're into that type of stuff.  Thanks.  I'm not gonna lie, if that goes on sale anytime soon I'm gonna buy it and worry about it later.  :guts:

I guess it might be a re-sculptured 2011 ver., and as usual, with SWAROVSKI crystals attach on skull knight's eyes as well as the horse eyes. :D

This is what makes it so easy not to buy from AoW anymore.

What do you htink about the 70pcs total, is it to make this figure so rare that the hardcore colletors will def buy it?

I like the name "Normal <<Limited>> version"....

You can edit your original post to add content amano, instead of making a double post.

70 is not particularly limited for a re-re-repaint of this statue. Serial 236 was a 100, 237 was 10, 267 was 30 and to add to it, now 70 more.

ver 2011 is limited to 200 pieces.... It was an indeed big release, 100 w demon soldier and 100 w/o. The weather boned being 30 piece. Also there's anime repainted project for the unsold 10 pieces of ver. 2011

So with this 70 pieces additional, we have 300 pieces on total.

Cool to see you made it on the forum ok.  25th anniversary Guts.....had better be epic, giving AOW the benefit of the doubt here....I think they can get an awesome Guts out if they just review people's comments a bit and recreate an epic scene.  I'm sure this Skull Knight will be the centerpiece of your collection since you never bought AOW before.  Enjoy.
