My God, the detail and accuracy on these is incredible. The best statues I've seen for Berserk.
 
Their new Guts 1/3 statue looks great, his face been greatly improved compared to their first one.
But the one that really caught my attention is the diorama with Guts/Dog and the coffin, that one looks super cool (and I'll certainly order it :guts:).
 
Pretty bummed about the Ishidro, he looks super silly. Way to cartoon-ish and does not match the rest of the line. The Schierke is just okay, some improvements could be made.

I think they both look great.

ok, maybe Isidro don't look "well" but look the manga, Isidro looks like the statue, if you want a statue of Isidro who looks well, definitely you must alter the original design and that is doesn't the idea, for example, see the eyebrows, in the manga they look well but try to imagine in a 3D design, they don't look so good, it's the price, not always the statues are going to look as great as in the drawing, which does not mean that Isidro is bad, I do not know if it could be better, but I like it anyway. :isidro: :serpico:

They look great! I especially like the textures on the coffin and the sword. That being said, Gecco's reproduction of the Dragonslayer still looks the best and most accurate out there in my opinion.
 
This YouTuber uploaded a bunch of videos, one for each Berserk statue. Definitely worth looking!!

Bloody version repaint - apparently exclusive for China only and in limited numbers. A lot of people who pre-ordered the original version are upset (rightfully so) and it would've made more sense for Prime 1 to present the option of both versions when they offered the pre-order.

 
jap I'm also pissed, they reveal it long after the original PO and somehow affect the value of the original piece too with their variants, best way to be the new AOW.
 
Currently pre-ordered P1 Berserker Armor and Femto.

I promised myself that I would wrap things up after SK on his horse, but I really like the Beast of Casca's dream statue. The fact that they got it out so quickly is amazing. Doggo guts was one of my favorite things over the last few years. If the price is right, its going to be very hard to pass this one up.

Any news on when we'll see SK on horse? Surprised how many pieces they've shown ahead of him.

Tough to say. The official facebook P1 collectors page has been mum on him, though the sample image of the base is bumped every few weeks. The group was hoping for an unveiling at wonderfest, but instead they showed off some other stuff.

With how complex the base is looking, I'm guessing this will be among their most expensive statues. I'm talking P1 Jetfire Optimus and Wonder Woman on her horse.



 
Isidro is up for preorder. Some very nice high-def photos for your enjoyment on sideshow: https://www.sideshowtoy.com/collectibles/berserk-isidro-prime-1-studio-9038791/

$699 for the exclusive (comes with additional head sculpt)
$649 for normal edition.




 
There is an exhibition with a Guts statue signed by Miura. I never wanted a Berserk statue so badly.

Where does everyone purchase their prime1 statues? From sideshow, prime1 website or another? Just wondering bc I’m located in USA and using sideshow is usually easier and cheaper on shipping.

I'm also in the US, and sideshow is def the way to go.
 
Seriously, amazing photos!!! I’ve been a collector and berserk fan since about 2010. Most of my pieces have been from AOW as most of us because that was mainly the only source. These new manufacturers starting to produce is so cool and really excited. Prime1 is for real putting down remarkable masterpieces. I want all these!

Some pics of my Guts statue by Prime1. Cannot believe how BIG it is. First shot you can see how it compares to a standard 1/10 AOW Guts:











More pics and also a video on my instagram: https://www.instagram.com/p/BgpPNQlBGZa/

Overall, I'm very impressed. I don't like the 2nd and exclusive head (the big grin). My favorite is the original "neutral" expression. I think it looks most like Guts. The base is also not as cluttered when you see it in person. In pictures, it's a lot going on. But in person, the scale is so big you can really look through the base with ease and it's really something to be appreciated in that regard. I cannot wait for Zodd!
 
Some images have been surfacing for Prime 1's Human Zodd release. The paint applications and detailing seem to be nothing short of exceptional. These are some shots taken from a Chinese website.













However....I do have some personal criticisms. I understand that Prime 1 is taking a realistic approach to this line, however I don't feel that this face is truly Zodd. When comparing the face to manga, the differences are quite clear.





Some may prefer this interpretation which is fine. Unfortunately, I would consider this a deal breaker for me as I would greatly prefer a more manga accurate portrait. I know this is possible as previous sculptors such as Headlong have accomplished it.


This is a shame as every other portion of the statue is very well done, although I do feel that the inclusion of the random horse head on the base is questionable.

I agree. I'm not impressed with the likeness, and given the price that's unfortunate.

Was just gonna post it! So happy we're getting some Golden Age since the line seems to be focused on the Falcon of the Millennium arc primarily. :ubik:

Love the look of her, and I'm so relieved that we're not gonna retread the same footsteps as the Figma...

 
Guts 1/3 scale just went up for pre-order! Release date April-July 2020

Regular edition comes with 2 different heads, LED base - $1,099
https://www.prime1studio.com/berserk-9/br-guts-the-black-swordsman-mmbr-01.html





Deluxe edition is regular edition + 2 extra heads, 2 Pucks, 1 interchangeable arm - $1,299; limited edition of 888 https://www.prime1studio.com/berserk-9/br-guts-the-black-swordsman-mmbr-01dx.html







And here's a video of how he looks in-person: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0OD0w3efbQs


Pre-ordered the Deluxe edition myself, managed to hold off on the other Prime 1 statues but this one appealed to me the most:
-Heads actually look like Guts this time
-Simple but not too overbearing (base isn't too busy), focus on his musculature/physique and the Dragonslayer
-Cool light base
-Cute Pucks
Might just be me but the statue literally represents Guts when I think of him--him in his Tower of Conviction arc armor, having a stern gaze, looking really cool and strong, with Puck as an awesome companion, all while standing over brutalized corpses of the Eclipse and supported by a gritty base. Just 100% Berserk!
