NYCC 2017: F4F Berserk Guts Statue EX Painted Photos!

If there’s a prize to be won for the ugliest (in a good way) statue that First4Figures debuted today at New York Comic Con 2017, I think there’s a pretty decisive winner. F4F has inched into the anime statue market slowly with the recent release of their Saitama statue and pre-order for Mugen of Samurai Champloo fame, but at NYCC 2017 they fully unveiled their first anime mega-blockbuster statue: the F4F Berserk Guts Statue! This is gonna be a big deal…

Ultra-bloody, crazy-violent anime isn’t really my jam, but I want First4Figures to take the anime statues market by storm, so I rejoiced when they announced the license for the ridiculously popular “Berserk” anime.

And now, after ages of seeing impossible hints, sneak peeks and unpainted prototypes, F4F finally dropped the curtain on the fully-painted Berserk Guts Statue prototype today. Let’s check out the hi-res pics…

I’m greatly anticipating seeing the sales and reception when this piece launches for pre-order in the winter!
