is the Guts Figma worth getting right now at his scalper prices? I heard there is anime for the Berserk series to be premiered this year. What are the chances of figma (or anyone really) taking a crack at new berserker figures?
I wouldn't exactly call it scalper prices. At this point it's late fees.
I'd like a Black Swordsman rerelease to celebrate the upcoming series, but I don't know how often Max Factory does those.
Vulcanlog seems to be grabbing a LOT of licenses as of late. They miiiiight take a crack at Berserk, then again I doubt they'll want to compete with the upcoming God Hand Figmas (knock on wood) and the already established Berserk line.
That's the thing, I like revoltech, but I feel like yamaguchi (assuming he's the sculptor, as he usually is with the more commercial releases) wouldn't be able to pull of the robustness of guts. Figma seems to have been able to capture that.
What is he at $100 now?
I would get him if I had like a $50 gift card then paid the other half. I'm a Berserk fan but I was late to the party (just started collecting about 8 months ago) and I vowed never to pay over a hundred for a figure.
Either wait for a re-release or just pay the crazy amount he's goin for. If you have the money and willing to spend it I dont see why not.
Really depends on how much you like him. Between the Berserker armor and this one, I like the Berserker armor more. They both have plastic capes which really weigh them down. It's just that in the Band of the Hawk one the stand plugs into the cape, which is awkward and doesn't work too well, where in the Berserker one the stand plugs into his lower back, underneath the cape.
Thinkgeek might still have, pretty good looking desu
figma black swordsman was my grail for a long time and i just got him as a christmas present. the age definitely shows on these guys. they use older forms of articulation compared to newer figmas, but theyre still amazing. the cloth cape is a little weird to get used to but god damn he looks great. if youre gonna shell out that much for guts, you might as well get his definitive look over the band of the hawk.
