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’!

⇒ PRODUCT DETAILS

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.

VOTOMS ATM-09-ST SCOPEDOGTM-09-ST

Today’s Main Feature!

Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

Today I’m going to take a look at this item currently up for preorder…

VOTOMS ATM-09-ST SCOPEDOG TM-09-ST !

From the mecha anime series that first aired in 1983 that has led to various OVA series, novels and games ‘Armored Trooper VOTOMS’ comes a 1/12th scale action figure of one of the most well-known mecha from the series – the ATM-09-ST SCOPEDOG!

The figure stands approximately 33cm in height and captures the original design from the anime series down to the finest of details. The figure is fully articulated down to the joints in each finger and can also be transformed into crouching mode. The pelvis joints of the figure can be adjusted vertically in 3-steps to adjust the leg lengths allowing for various different poses. The magazines for the arm punch attack can be loaded into the arm, and spare magazines can also be mounted on the holders found on the hip area. The included GAT-22 Heavy Machine Gun has a detachable fabric belt, barrel and stock, which allows you to convert it into short barrel form. It also features detachable machine gun magazines which can also be mounted on the hip area of the armor.

A 1/12th scale action figure of the SCOPEDOG from Armored Trooper VOTOMS!

⇒ PRODUCT DETAILS

The unique battle-damaged paintwork that threezero is so well known for as well as the amazing sculptwork on the finer details and accessories, full articulation down to each joint in the finger… this really is the perfect SCOPEDOG figure!!

The ATM-09-ST SCOPEDOG is a highly manoeuvrable humanoid AT (Armored Trooper) that features muscle cylinders that allow it to move in a similar way to humans. It is capable of combat in a wide variety of areas include space, open land and urban areas. The bottom of the feet are fitted with gliding wheels which can easily be rotated for quick and agile movement in almost any situation, and the feet also feature ‘turn picks’ which can be deployed into the ground for emergency braking.

The trademark camera lens allows for standard zoom, wide area zoom and detailed sighting which can all be recreated on the figure by turning the lens! (´□`。)

The figure also comes with a 1/12th scale AT Pilot to display beside or inside the main figure!!

The rubbery appearance of the pilots outfit has been beautifully preserved, and he is also articulated allowing for all sorts of different poses! ★

▲ You can even pose him sitting down like so! ♪

But of course the main reason you will want to pose him sitting is of course to pose him riding inside the AT itself!

The inside of the cockpit is also sculpted in amazing detail! ヽ(●´Д`●)ノ

▲ Just enough space for one pilot!

As a side note, Nendoroid Petite Mikudayo can also ride inside the SCOPEDOG!

▲ She has a rather convincing size, doesn’t she?!

In addition, the SCOPEDOG can also be displayed in the pose just before the pilot gets into the AT! ♡

(。´-`).。oO(It looks so cute all bunched up like this! 

The part he is holding on to here also opens and closes and there are all sorts of similar moving parts that make the figure all the more fun to play around with! ♪

▲ He fits inside so neatly! (/ω\)

One last moving part I want to show off!

The Gliding Wheel that gives the SCOPEDOG its high maneuverability as well as the Turn Picks that it uses to stop its fast movement without a seconds notice both move around!! (∩・∀・)∩

You can also recreate the powerful close-combat arm punch with the figure!!

You can find a variety of more photos over on the official product page, so be sure to take a look!!(。・ω・)ノ゙

Bring the world of Armored Trooper VOTOMS into your collection!

TITANFALL IMC OGRE

Hello everyone, Kahotan here! (@gsc_kahotan)

My chair in the offices is right by the air conditioning, so my skin tends to try out a lot… I get the feeling that even in mid-Summer I’m going to be rather chilly in this seat!

Anyway, today I’m going to be taking a look at threezero’s…
TITANFALL IMC OGRE

From the popular multiplayer sci-fi shooter ‘Titanfall’ comes a model of one of the large robotic weapons known as ‘Titans’. The Ogre is known as the most highly armored of all the Titans, and has now been shrunk down to 1/12th scale together with a pilot all in the IMC color scheme.

The Ogre’s torso and leg armor plates, waist area, arms, fingers and more all move in various different ways boasting over 100 points of articulation. The cockpit hatch can also be opened and closed, and the included pilot of the same scale can even be seated inside. The inside of the cockpit, torso and back thrusters all feature light-up effects with interchangeable red and blue lights. The hatch on the tri-missile launcher on his left shoulder can be opened and closed and the missiles are detachable. The Ogre also comes with a 40mm Cannon with a detachable ammo drum allowing for various situations. The included pilot is also gully articulated and is dressed in an outfit made from real fabric for a truly realistic appearance. Detailed armor parts are also included worn over the fabric. The pilot carries a R97 Submachine Gun as his weapon.

The heavily armored Titan joins the battle on Frontier with the IMC color scheme!

Product Details: http://www.goodsmile.info/en/product/5701/

The model features incredible paintwork that shows the armor has been though its fair share of battles, and the weapons have such an amazing mechanical appearance with so much attention given to little things like the clamps really brings the Titanfall universe to life right in front of you! It’s really a work of art from both a sculpting and painting point of view!

△ The accessories made from real fabric add an extra level of realism!

The model also includes an IMC pilot with a battle rifle!

It’s hard to think of the pilot as an extra part, he is way too detailed and articulated to not be considered a main part of the product!

Large portions of his outfit are made from fabric, and the damaged appearance of the armor helps to bring out the atmosphere of the Titanfall universe! The OGRE also comes with this 40mm Cannon which can be attached and removed whenever you wish!

△ That heavy, weapon-like feeling has been captured so effectively!

Anyway, let’s take a closer look at the pilot first! ♪

– Pilot –

The pilot is sculpted as a 1/12th scale figure, standing approximately 152mm in height – around the same size as a figma!★

△ An R97 Submachine Gun is also included with the pilot!

The pilot also comes with joints all over his body allowing for all sorts of different movements and poses! (σ・∀・)σ

△ If you balance him really well he can even stand on one foot! ♪

△Relaxing after a long battle on Frontier! ♥︎


… I took this photo with the intention of having the pilot hugging Dayo-san… but while I was taking it Hamako from the planning team came by and said… “Why are you making them fight each other?”… (´・ω・`)

Anyway, the point is that there are all sorts of different poses to place the pilot in! But he is of course still tiny in comparison to the main feature…

– Titan –

Around 508mm in height!

Around the same size as a newborn baby I would imagine!!

△ Petite Dayo-san is rather tiny in comparison!

Each and every one of this fingers is fitted with joints, allowing you to pose the Ogre holding onto things like this!

Taking a look from a lower angle makes the model appear so heavy and mechanical! ε=(。・д・。)

Just standing still it looks so imposing, but also features over 100 points of articulation including parts around the hips and legs that allow for all sorts of amazing poses! 

But that’s not all!!
Just like the previously released TITANFALL M-COR OGRE the model also features light-up effects! ( ✧Д✧)

△ A switch on the back lets the lights on the top light-up blue and red! ★

But not only does it light-up…

The cockpit also opens and closes!

The inside of the cockpit has also been fully detailed, so be sure to take a nice close look if you choose to pick one up!

△ Even the inside has a long history of battle…!

The pilot can of course also be placed inside the cockpit!

△ The prototype is a bit delicate, so here is one of the official product photos!

Here we have Dayo-san riding inside the Ogre!

△ She is so… intimidating!

The left shoulder also features a tri-missile launcher with all sorts of moving parts – even the missiles inside are included and can be removed as if being fired!

△ A lovely feature that adds so much playability! ☆

I’m sure the IMC OGRE will bring all sorts of fun to those who choose to pick it up! 

Amazing to look at, fun to move around – add the gigantic Titan to your collection!
