Art of War, known for their premium Berserk statues, is celebrating their 20th anniversary, and the latest addition to the line-up marking the occassion is a Berserk-The Tentacle Ship 2017*Aluminum Coating Gold Version. It's a variant of a figure that they first did in 2014, with Bloody and Black versions in the following years. 98000 yen (about $880) will sound pricey, but the figure is H 52 cmx W 31 cmx D 30 cm (including base & dragon slayer) and the after-market asking price for the earlier, sold-out figures has been in the thousands (for example, this one at $4k).
