My next project is 1/6 Berserk Guts from Sword of Berserk - my favorite fantasy/gore/horror Manga/Anime. It's been running for about 20 years (and still going..)
I'm gonna make 2 figures from the series. One is 'Black Knight' version (before the main character gets Berserker armor) and the 2nd one is 'Berserker armor' version
This is WIP for the 'Black Knight' version.
For this one, I'm gonna use Dragon's 12" figure for most of armor parts and Hot toy's new muscular body as a base.
First, I got lazy and modified the HT head to get the facial expression I want (instead of new head sculpt..). If I don't like it, I'll go back and make a new head sculpt..
This one, I'm trying to get more realistic feel.
I shaved the hair and carved out the mouth, and put the teeth in for the test. It looks like it can work.
Also saving the Anime head came with Dragon, but adding joint for head joint (shape will be modified later)
This is armor fitting test. Most armor parts can be used without too much effort! Left side mechanical arm and shoulder armor need some modification to fit better. Also some shapes of leather parts need some tweaks as well.
IMO, already looking much better than old Dragon version!!!
