Whoa, that's about as close to a photo-realistic version of Inoue's Musashi that one could do. Unlike previous statues the ways it varies from the character model in the manga seem like the difference between being drawn and being... there. Very cool. I think my favorite statue is still that old Kojiro though, and the Ito Ittosai kit is also pretty cool.Mangetsu said:There is also this absolutely amazing sculpt of Musashi

Yeah, for us Berserk fans fretting about the Grunbeld novel, at least it's too much Berserk-branded content, and we can otherwise rest easy knowing we won't have to resort to finishing the story in this format:Rhombaad said:but also
That is a HELL of a statue, wow. They nailed the resemblance to Musashi too. Cool that you were able to help!IncantatioN said:Was waiting for things to get official before posting about this statue. Such a great scene and the sculpt is gorgeous. It's been a while since I bought a statue for Berserk or Vagabond but I couldn't let this pass (goddaaaaaamnit DK!!). A fellow Berserk collector on this board is helping the studio translating things/ feedback across to them. I helped a little with input on the paint job by sharing a cover of a Morning magazine from an episode around that time (to get the colors of his clothing/ skin tone) and suggested that his clothes shouldn't look fresh/ new.
It might be his one legged pose from his duel with Koun (episode 175). Will confirm as the statue goes into final production.Speaking of which, if the next statue they do is also Vagabpond, I suggest a complementary Sasaki Kojiro! Maybe seeing them facing off would inspire Inoue.
