Berserk – A Legacy in Manga and Anime

For fans of the iconic manga and anime series Berserk, Bandai Collectibles’ announcement of the addition of the series’ protagonist, Guts, to the S.H. Figuarts line was nothing short of thrilling. As a fervent admirer of the series, I was ecstatic to get my hands on the Guts figure, especially in his notorious Berserker Armor.

Unboxing the Warrior: What’s in the Box?

The figure is a collector’s dream, coming with an array of accessories:

2 Pairs of Optional Hands

2 Optional Face Parts with Diverse Expressions

The Legendary Dragonslayer Sword

Bowgun and Bowgun Hand Option


The Mysterious Behelit

A Detailed Cloak with Wires for Posing


The highlight is undoubtedly the Dragonslayer sword, which lives up to every expectation with its imposing presence. The cloak, enhanced with wires for dynamic posing, adds a dramatic flair. Guts’ arsenal, including the bow and cannon, is meticulously crafted, underscoring the figure’s high-quality design.

A Balance of Pros and Cons

However, no figure is without its flaws. The leg articulation, unfortunately, seems somewhat limited, causing stability issues in certain poses. Also, not all the swappable hands attach seamlessly to the pegs, which can be a tad frustrating during setup.

The Verdict: A Must-Have for Berserk Fans

Despite these minor setbacks, the S.H. Figuarts Guts figure stands out as a remarkable piece. Its superb articulation, impressive face sculpts, and, most notably, the meticulously crafted Dragonslayer make it a standout. Having owned several Berserk figures over the years, I confidently declare this as the definitive Guts figure in the market.

Overall Rating: FOUR out of FIVE Pastrami Nations

For enthusiasts of Berserk and collectors of action figures, this rendition of Guts is a must-have. It’s a tribute to the legacy of the series, merging detailed craftsmanship with a deep respect for the source material. My advice? Grab this piece of manga history before it becomes a rare find.
