From my collection of Knight Fantasy figurine is this mysterious strong hero, Guts in Hawk Soldier attire while he was serving ‘Griffith’. He is the main character from the popular games and Japanese manga/anime known a Berserk. Definitely an old figure by Yamato backed in 2001 however the quality of this figure in terms of sculpts and paint job is jaw dropping good even today. The figure is packed in a rather big box with blister plastic insert tray. I threw the box cos it’s kind of bulky and had smutches and stains after years in storage. The figure on the other hand is in pristine condition, always on display in the living room. I love the figure as much as I like the character cos Guts really is the first few knight fantasy character from anime I know who carries a huge sword back then.
Maybe, what this ‘Art of War’ version of Guts figure, loses out is articulation (only 17 points of articulation) to the recent Figma release for the anime 20th anniversary. I still prefer this Guts Hawk Soldier by Yamato for the accurate and close resemblance to Guts in the anime, a good height of 18cm (9”) with adjustable face guard. Accessories including extra head, dagger, board sword and diorama display stand.
