Nah it's still too small. I really hope they fix that in the final version.

Ditto  :judo:

Here is the original digital art by Alessandro Baldasseroni. This was then modified by Alvaro Bernardes Cota Ribeiro with some final changes for print.








And this..

not just a statue of guts but a painting in 3D of Kentaro's ever evolving art style

They have a really high opinion of their piece at Prime1...

Honestly, I don't like it. There are proportions issues, likeness issues, pose issues, too much Guts themes poured into the base...
The details are great, the size is impressive, but that's about it.

To be fair they did say they were working with Kentaro and he approved it.

I don't want to cast doubts on Miura's judgment himself regarding his own design, but him approving a design doesn't say that the piece is a "painting in 3D of Kentaro's ever evolving art style".
It doesn't mean either that he thinks everything on this piece is good If he merely approved the concept art for instance.

Very well priced, all things considered.  I am a bit puzzled by the Japan only preorder.  Seems like only the exclusive version is available on the site?  I asked on the FB comments section, maybe they will respond...

Guess this one is going to my inlaws/friend in Japan first lol.  Thanks for the link gents.  I am in.

EDIT:  My friend that's been proxying for years lately been pretty busy personally, but if you guys are interested he's always highly recommended by me:

http://proxy.kolektakon.com/

He can help you with this item I'm sure if you guys are outside Japan.  Hyped....look at that:



EDIT2:  I just "preordered" and all was done was creating an account (physical address in Japan, phone # in Japan, and email) and they said they will contact you prior to shipping for payment.  It has to be done via bank wire no credit cards.

Meh, wasn't very impressed with how he turned out, for the price. Something about the faces and proportions feels off to me, and the base is just overflowing with randomly inserted elements, so it's a pass for me.
Also I hate to be that person but...if we're talking about a perfect Guts statue, please get his brows right  :carcus:

The heads seem slightly small, but it looks good.  I wish this had come out about 5 years ago when I had money to burn.

I'm hoping the base is several pieces.  I'd probably prefer to display it without all of that stuff.  It feels so busy.  Does anyone have Prime 1 statues?  Is that typical for them?

I don't have any of their past statues, but of all the Marvel, DC, TMNT, Transformers, etc that they've released, this has definitely got the busiest bases they've done (that I can remember).  Even if they have some kind of way to only place certain items on the base, I can't imagine it would look very nice with everything underneath exposed. 

I agree, though, it would be nice to be able to only place some of that on the base.

I asked my wife if we could sell our soon to be born baby so I could buy this, but no such luck, so I'll have to pass on it, even thought I really want it. Plus I have no clue where I'd put it if I did buy it.

Compared to other 1/4 scale prime1 pieces I would disagreee. Only the antivenom is quarter scale and this price range. I guess the base is what pushed the price up for this piece or license but idk. Too much imo and likeness isn't there for me.

Wow......that is freakin cool to say the least.....a large Schierke would be a bad@$$ addition to most Berserk collectors since there aren't too many of her.
AOW noob.

This contest is a joke...  Prime1 is making millions and can't offer a proper cash prize for that kind of pro job. What a shame.

Exactly. You can also take a closer look at every part of his facial features, nose, lips, even the hair cut isn't right.

Millions?  I highly doubt it. 

I can't imagine they produce the full edition size very often if at all. 

EDIT:  Though I agree the prize is a little weak.
