all of your purchases are exactly what I would expect to pay for those items, so you didn't get ripped off. Except $110.00 for the berserk pvc statue? From what I've heard people have been disappointed with it.

REMEMBER....
any money spent on berserk merch is a good investment!
(except if that's your rent money..... or tuition money..... or money you got from searching your family members belongings. Handsome Rakshas does not promote stealing!)

Dude I hate to say it but I really don't think that is the statue you got.  If it is you got the deal of the century since it goes for about four to five times what you paid.  You probably bought the PVC statue.

I've got to agree with Maiku here -rob-. I advise you to double check your purchase. Otherwise I don't think you got ripped off, you shouldn't regret buying these items. As for a modchip... http://www.modchip.com/

^That's the exact picture from the item. Plus the guy had 100% feedback outta 897. Is this a different model or something?


And Aazealh much thanks for that link to get a chip.

Yes, it's the PVC statue, not the resin one that you listed from berserkstatues.com. The pose and quality are different, the price too. ^^; Here are the AOW links to resin statue, and the PVC statue.

And you're welcome for the link.

No offense, but a big part of collecting ANYTHING is making sure you know what you're buying...

I'd advise to next time check out exactly what you are getting...

I hope you aren't disappointed with the PVC statue, though.

I'm getting one, but I'm waiting for Yamato USA to import it for $60.oo this November/ Dec.  No way I'm paying twice that after shipping for a statue that some are already complaining about...

I'm the best there is at what I do, though what I do isn't very nice! - Wolverine

Yeah you're right... I did plenty of research now though.

Getting these statues sure as hell is addicting. I just put some of my Magic cards up on Ebay so I can get more lol.
