Finally getting a rest day after 15 days of working. Naturally, I decided to spend
some time with my figures. Guts is the main character from the manga Berserk. A
trilogy movies will be released starting this year and figma Guts is what we get as
figma Guts does not come with many accessories but the important ones are
included, fortunately. He has only 9 hands including his arm cannon. We get
2 face expressions, wish he has one more... His famous weapon, the sword
called Dragon Slayer and a black cape make up the rest of the items.
I would grade Guts's face sculpting as a "pass". However, they did a very good
job with his body. Amazing details can be seen on his armor, waist bags, chains,
knife, shoulder plates (made of soft plastic) and his mechanic left arm. As shown
in this pic, the Dragon Slayer can be hung to his back with the help of the chain.
Due to my tatse with "girls with guns", Guts too have to post with some guns. Of
course in conjunction with his giant sword, he gets a giant one as well. Look at
Guts's left hand, his mechanic arm is actually a deadly arm cannon :)
Let's take a deeper look into the story of Guts. He grew up in battlefield and
continued to sharpen his fighting skills. Guts lost his right eye and left arm in
a tragic incident where almost all his comrades were sacrificed (this should
be covered in the trilogy movies). After recovered, Guts obtained the Dragon
Slayer and started his road for revenge. Since then, he was known as the
Guts is a fearsome fighter, who possess both incredible strength as well as
blinding speed. His enormous experience in battlefield and assassinations made
him nearly undefeated. He would not hesitate to cut down his enemies, whether
they are human or not.
Guts has a huge body size. He is so imposing that the other male figmas
look like kids in front of him.
Despite his bullying outlook, Guts is surprisingly popular among lolis
(go read the manga if you don't believe me). Now imagine Mayoi-chan
shouting "Go Berserker!" ^^
Oh about the black cape, it is made of paper-like cloth material combining
with soft plastic parts. I find it quite useful for other figures. Araragi-kun can
enjoy himself looking like a vampire prince while Strength (STR)'s hoodie
works well with the cape too.
What if Guts goes to school...
Do not be surprised by Guts's other talents apart from fighting and
Overall, I have no complaints. figma Guts Black Soldier version delivers
what fans like me want, not excellent but satisfying. However, I do wish
for another version of Guts, not the space mecha version like this pic^^
Hopefully will be one with Guts clad in the Berserker Armor.
As for now, will be waiting for figma Griffith, the second main character
in Berserk. Oh do check out the manga!
