Merchandise manufacturer Threezero has announced the release of two new collectible figurines based on characters from the popular manga series Berserk. The figurines of Guts and Skull Knight are now available for pre-order on Sideshow and are expected to ship by the end of the year.
The Guts figure stands over 12 inches tall and retails for $260. It features multiple points of articulation, allowing for various poses, and comes with interchangeable accessories such as different hand options. The highlight of the collectible is Guts’ iconic sword, Dragonslayer, which is almost as tall as the rest of the figurine. The figure also includes other types of weaponry.
On the other hand, the Skull Knight figure is 14 inches tall and retails for $280. It also offers multiple interchangeable options and accessories. One unique feature of this collectible is the LED light-up eyes, which require three AGI batteries.
Berserk, created by Kentaro Miura, is a dark fantasy manga series set in a brutal world filled with monsters and atrocities. The story follows Guts, also known as the Black Swordsman, on his quest for revenge against Griffith, his former friend and commander. After Miura’s unfortunate passing in 2021, mangaka Kouji Mori took over the series with the help of Studio Gaga.
The series has been influential in the entertainment industry, inspiring many creatives such as Hajime Isayama (Attack on Titan), Kazue Kato (Blue Exorcist), and Makoto Yukimura (Vinland Saga). The impact of Berserk is also evident in Netflix’s Castlevania, as showrunner Adi Shankar and assistant director Adam Deats have openly discussed its influence.
Berserk’s dedicated fanbase has also contributed to the franchise’s popularity. Fans create their own content, such as cosplay and fan art, as a way to express their love for Miura’s story. Dark Horse Comics distributes the Berserk manga in North America, while the anime adaptations by Liden Films and Studio 4°C are available on Crunchyroll.
Overall, Threezero’s new collectible figurines offer fans of Berserk the opportunity to bring their favorite characters to life. With their attention to detail and numerous accessories, these figurines are sure to be a hit among collectors and fans alike.
