Guts - Wonferful Hobby Selection - Max FactoryGuts - Wonferful Hobby Selection - Max FactoryReview

Guts is the main character of the popular manga series called Berserk. It is a 90's manga that still on going until now. He's known as the Black Swordsman, seeks sanctuary from the demonic forces attracted to him because of a demonic mark on his neck. Also a vengeance against the man who branded him as an unholy sacrifice.

He has mighty strength gained from a harsh childhood lived with mercenaries, a massive sword called Dragonslayer, and an iron prosthetic left hand could be used a hidden canon. He is wearing an improved Blackswordsman armor with the steel protection on the knees and hips also the leather padding on the thighs and crotch.

And Max Factory tried to make a 1/6th scaled polystone statue of that version of Guts under 'Wonderful Hobby Selection' category. Question is why now?
I think the reason is because of the new Berserk series that will be aired on July 2016. Here is the trailer and if you against the CG animation approach, then don't watch it!

Max Factory made diorama where Guts is in the middle of an apostle massacre, having defeated one and already getting ready to attack the next. He holds his massive sword Dragonslayer overhead, coated in the blood of his victims as he looks ahead with an imposing glare on his face. That's the essence of Berserk!
It's limited only 300 pieces worldwide. And for 1/6th scale statue, the price would be around 137,000 yen. That's quite a number, isn't it?

Let's see if this piece were worth that price tag, shall we?

The box artwork is simple but effective. Demonic brand with red and black background. It looks expensive!

There is an adjustable black strap to make it easier taking out the styrofoam box out of outer box

The protections are maximum. There are many sponges to protect the fragile parts

There are 4 parts only. And there are magnet to ensure they stay put on that position

Let's see the magnificent Guts...

As you can see, the height of the statue is unusual, 75 cm tall. And with that size, it allows sculptor and painter to put much details and paintwork both on Guts and also the base.. especially that base. We could see the effort to make it the best base ever.
Guts also has impressive treatment. The details on his armor and paintwork is unbelievable.

Let's see the followings pictures to sums it all...

I saw there is a debate regarding his face. I don't mind at all. He looks like Guts I know. And his expression is full of life. It could capture the whole Berserk world. But I agree the skin tone is a bit darker.

There are lots going on with Guts. It has been sculpted with careful attention and details. The only complaints is that the cape was too clean. There were no blood spilled on it. It's kinda weird since all other parts has blood splash.

Size Comparison

https://c2.staticflickr.com/2/1484/25502818953_87fcc0165f_z.jpg

Comparison with the same 1/6th scale statue. Naruto height's is 160cm and Guts' is 190cm. I think the proposition is alright

With 137,000 Yen price tag, Max Factory want to give you a masterpiece of Guts, the holy grail of all Berserk statue. And yes, I think they did achieve that goal. The statue is the best statue I've ever owned

Terrence4 anno/i fa#8020501A breathtaking figure full of life (or should i say, slain apostles, ehe). The figure commands details in every area, and It really does deserve the Wonderful Hobby Selection tag. Very pricey, but you do get what you pay for. Congrats on being one of the few proud owners of him, he looks amazing.


ashtaroth4 anno/i fa#8028633It's a cool figure. I actually thought about preordering it being a fan of the series. Knowing what Guts went through and what he's up against.
Hate to be that guy but unfortunately a 1/6 for that price? Nah.....Then again if it was 1/4 with Berserk armour they can take my freaking money! You still have my like though, good job.


Thank you.. :)

Ricotta4 anno/i fa#8021689I was waiting for somebody to make a review of this fig, thank you for being that guy! It's a great figurine, very true to the character and the spirit of the manga. The attention to details is amazing. Is it based on an official illustration (mostly asking because of the design of the Apostle)? As for the skin tone, I agree with everybody, it's a bit too Dark, but it could be argued that Guts spends so much time fighting Apostle on the outside that he began to tan :D ?
As for the new anime, I'm conflicted: I'm glad to see an adaptation of Berserk other than the Golden Age (even if Lost Children is my least favorite arc), Hirasawa Susumu-sama is back for the music, and I'm really happy to see Farnese and Serpico, but the 3D looks so ugly, stiff and outdated that I'm almost repulsed.


Glad you like my review. I think it wasn't based on illustration. Yes, the skin tone is darker than it should be.

HobbyCentric4 anno/i fa#8009973Funny you post this review now. I was just introduced to this character and his world by watching Berserk; The Egg of the King on NetFlix on Monday evening. Unfortunately, no other anime related to the series is on NetFlix.......

Then you could enjoy him even more.. :) Welcome to Berserk world.

jazzylin4 anno/i fa#8010412Wow I'm very impressed with the quality of the paint, its not often you see such detail!

Indeed. It's not often we see such details and paintjoh.

Akira4 anno/i fa#801042775cm of pure badassery.
Thanks for the review, this thing looks amazing!


You are welcome..

Azukay4 anno/i fa#8012711Oh man, I'm so jealous. ;-;
That price tag though...


Don't be but the price tag is just.. Wow.



maggie4 anno/i fa#8013671I have such a long affair with this statue, I can't wait until he's home with me. I'm going to change him up a bit, but I'm sure that will only make our bond stronger LOL
Thank you for being a person that finally posts photos that don't make him look like a train wreck, I saw him in person at NYCC, face pressed against the glass like a kid at a candy store. I couldn't look away, I kept visiting him. I agree his face is a bit off, coloring a bit dark, but easily fixable with a little elbow grease. Should you have to fix such an expensive statue? No. Will many people think he's fine as he is? Yes. Is he lightyears better than AoW? Definitely. He's like a frigging museum piece.
For me, nothing beats the pose and the presence of this statue. It just feels like the madness and intensity that is Berserk. And not just some dude in a neutral pose holding a massive sword.


Thank u for your thoughtful comment. I am glad that you like it. It means I could deliver photos that could capture him at his best.

Personally I do love his face. Really capture him very well. It looks like he was screaming: "BRING iT MORE!!". So badass..

I agree that this piece is not just some dude standing in natural pose holding giant sword.
This can be called museum piece.
