Dragon 1/6 Berserk Guts 12-inch Black Swordsman Figure REVIEW II

No Guts No Glory? continued from my earlier post...

The Dragon Models Limited (DML) 1:6 scale Berserk Guts Black Swordsman 12-inch Figure which I reviewed in the earlier post came with a black cloth cape that obscured pretty much everything on the back of the figure and this figure came pretty loaded so I thought I'll post pictures of the Dragon Berserk Guts figure without his huge Dragon Slayer sword and with his cape removed so we can see how he looks like without it, especially from the back.

In the dark fantasy manga series "Berserk (ベルセルク, Beruseruku)" written and illustrated by Kentaro Miura, Guts (ガッツ, Gattsu) is a an orphaned mercenary warrior who is a tall, muscular man with a prosthetic left forearm that has a magnetic grip, conceals a cannon, and can be fitted with a small repeating crossbow. He wields a huge sword called Dragon Slayer.

And here's a look at what Guts carried on his back - looks like a quiver for his arrows and additional pouches for putting all the things he needs.

There are also quite a bit of chains attached to his armor as well as smaller knives for throwing and one for close combat and/or cutting with, all carried in sheaths on his body.

Here's a look at Guts' prosthetic left forearm. It's supposed to have a magnetic grip but not so for this 1:6 scale version. All plastic and "leather" except for the metal chains. He's carrying the small repeating crossbow in his left hand.

The leg armor is pretty well secured with leather straps

And here are his other weapons laid out - 5 throwing knives, 1 close quarter combat fighting knife and his small repeating crossbow.
