Kentaro Miura’s classic fantasy series Berserk has kept fans entertained for decades. In celebration of the upcoming Berserk Movie Trilogy, Max Factory is following the release of their Guts figma with a Griffith figma. The charismatic leader of the “Band of the Hawk”, Griffith is constructed of painted ABS & PVC, and stands approximately 155mm in height. He is dressed in full armor, and is reproduced in remarkable detail–the sheen on that armor could pass for real chrome! Luckily, Max Factory has announced that the armor on this figure is very flexible, so posing will not be an issue.

Figma figures have joints, which allow them to move into different positions. In general, they tend to come with extra parts and accessories that can be interchanged. For example, the heads are usually replaceable with a different face, so you can give Griffith your favorite expression from the anime.

Starting July, 2012, Griffith will be retailing at an average price of $45USD (¥3,725). This is very reasonable, given the rarity of “stone-cold badass” male figurine releases.
