Skull Knight (Berserk)

Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

The Halloween decorations all over the streets really brighten things up! I need to stock up on candy for Halloween night!! Today I’m going to be taking a look at this item by threezero, currently up for preorder!

Skull Knight!

From the popular dark fantasy manga series ‘Berserk’ comes a second 1/6th scale figure from threezero – the Skull Knight! The mysterious, powerful warrior with the strength to oppose the Apostles and the God Hand has saved Guts a number of times, and now the ominous knight with more pride than you may expect has had his unique skeletal appearance faithfully preserved in figure form for fans to enjoy.

The figure stands approximately 35.5cm in height and is fully articulated. His skull armor features a realistic metallic paint application with a black wired cape for posing. His eyes feature an LED light-up effect. The Sword of Thorns, the Skull Knight’s shield with its rose design as well as six interchangeable hand parts are all included.

The mysterious knight who wishes to get revenge against God Hand!

A fully articulated figure of the mysterious Skull Knight from the dark fantasy series loved by fans all around the world for many years ‘Berserk’!

The quality of this figure is almost unprecedented for an action figure!!

The intricate details, rough appearance and weathered, used appearance created though the paintwork makes it hard to believe that the figure isn’t made from metal! ε=(。・д・。)

The battered and worn shield really shows off the craftsmanship at threezero, and the decorative rose in the middle brings the whole design together beautifully! ♡

The thorns of the rose can also be seen on the guard and grip of the sword! (∩・∀・)∩

▲ It must be rather painful to hold such a thorny looking sword!

The figure is an impressive 1/6th scale figure that stands approximately 355mm in height allowing you to really enjoy the details that have been put into the sculpt and paintwork!

The cape he wears is also fitted with wires which allows for dynamic poses, or still poses with the wind blowing his cape outward like above! ★

But who exactly are threezero?

Threezero, founded by ThreeA co-owner Kim Fung Wong is one of the original producers of the Hong Kong designer figure style, best known for their gasmask logo (designed by Michael Lau) and its many iterations as a street-smart vinyl figure. Designers whose figures have been produced by Threezero include Michael Lau, Jason Siu and Elphonso Lam.

Threezero began producing 12″ figures special forces uniforms around 2000. They were then the pioneer in producing weapons for these figures made from die cast. Threezero has since extended their toy ranges from 12″ figures to designer vinyl collectibles.

The name “Threezero” has become synonymous with Kim, who continues to carry the name in all of his productions and collaborative efforts with other designers around the world; and is often credited under this pseudonym at 3A Events and media coverage as he continues to push the boundaries in the art toy medium with Ashley Wood.

Anyway, let’s get back to Skull Knight!

He even features LED LIGHT-UP EYES! ☆

The above image is a GIF showing the ON and OFF modes in a loop – the eyes don’t actually flash on and off like this, they stay on as you’d expect!

In addition, a variety of interchangeable hand parts are also included to create all sorts of different poses from the series, or even your own original poses!

▲ Even the little fingers are so amazingly detailed!

He also features some rather out of the ordinary articulation!

His mouth can be opened as if he was going to eat the ‘Egg of the Supreme Ruler’! The actual Egg isn’t included, but you can easily picture the scene just with his mouth being open!!

Plus, while he looks amazing all by himself, you can also pose him together with the previously released Guts (Black Swordsman) to bring out the atmosphere of the Berserk universe even more! ★

▲I like posing them back-to-back!

Be sure to add the mysterious knight that helps Guts to your collection!
