Am I wrong to think AOW previously already had a Griffith on horse?  heh......good thing I don't buy Griffith statues in general.  Doesn't look bad though......just seems very similar to the one made before....rock base and all....
AOW noob.

This is the same old statue, they just selling something from their warehouse. Only a little repaint, and now there is also Guts on horse - if you looking for him, one is for sale now in this forum.
I'm glad that they selling old statues sometimes, a very nice opportunity for newcomers.

Wonder if the height includes the tip of the sword or the horse's head.

Guts On Horse (Doldrey) was about 60,000 Yen.
Griffith On Horse (Doldrey) is 100,000 Yen.

You're essentially paying 40,000 yen for that 12-15 cm base. No thank you AOW :rickert:

He should be much heavier, for scale figures you have to pay for amount of pvc/resin/polystone used in crafting.

i wouldnt say uninspiring its a very nice statue, but its not something new like they are saying , in my opinion they shouldnt have released it, because this is going devaluate the first 1 10 kit, and something completely new would be much  better

I don't think they have the capabilities to release new sculpts in competitive prices. Once Max Factory, figma and others take hold on Berserk, AoW will have a rough time keeping up...

As far as I know, only Good Smile Company have license (figma and max factory are affiliated manufacturers). They trying make a polystone release and prototypes looks great, but with a big companies you can see prototypes for years - for example, they showed Bruce Lee figma 2 years and now there is not even a tentative date of release  :puck:

what i dont get is why they cant ?? i supposse its because they release such low numbers they cant get good prices for their material and with time are getting lower and lower, or they simply have terrible material providers, idont see any other explanation, because they are  the onlycompany with those prices, they do for sure great things but they do mediocre things too and everything is expensive

I'm not sure how polystone production going but statues made from it are not cheap no matter who made it. For example, GSC titan statue from Shingeki priced around 65.000 JPY which is average Art of War product. Speaking of paint jobs majority of collectors would agree - their painting overpriced - but again, newer releases getting better and better in terms of painting.

Five years ago maybe, nowadays the standard price is around 100,000 JPY.

Other companies are around 45,000-65,000 yen, AOW are around 95,000-110,000, big gap there. But as been said before it's not just their statues, any merchandise from AOW like rings, panels, toys, everything is overpriced. Their prices made more sense at the beginning of the company.
