Preview Medicom RAH (Real Action Heroes) 1/6 Guts Band of the Hawk 12" action figure

Berserk (ベルセルク Beruseruku) is a manga series written and illustrated by Kentaro Miura. Set in a medieval Europe-inspired fantasy world, the story centers around the characters of Guts, an orphaned mercenary, and Griffith, the leader of a mercenary band called the Band of the Hawk (鷹の団 Taka no Dan). (source: wiki)

Guts (created by Kentaro Miura) is the main protagonist of Berserk. He was the former raid unit leader of a mercenary group known as the Band of the Hawk. This is the upcoming Medicom RAH 636 Guts Band of the Hawk action figure.

Guts has black hair fitted with constant, short pointy spikes already built from short hair itself. At the base of his hairline, he allows a few strands to hang just above his forehead. He wears bandages over his right hand (a style he has used since the beginning, most likely to assist in handling a sword) and wears a sleeveless white under shirt beneath it, allowing him to move his arms freely.

Guts wears a tan-to-brown coloured set of armour that transitions from leather to a harder material. In addition to this equipment, he is mostly seen in battle wearing a uniquely shaped head-guard that protects all but his mouth. He later discards the helmet upon leaving the Hawks (along with the sword he was using up to that point, due to having been broken in battle by Boscogn).

On his pants there is also a set of armour featured in the groin area most likely for protective purposes.

Without his hood, he is shown to be a man with a young, wrinkle-less face with a scar crossing the bridge of his nose. This upcoming RAH Berserk Guts figure by Medicom appears to be a younger Guts as the older Guts has his right eye shut indefinitely, and it is later revealed that it was taken from him by an Apostle some time before.

The older Guts' left arm was severed from just below the elbow, having been replaced by the Cannon Arm fitted with an arm cannon and has a magnet in the palm portion capable of grasping the rather large blade he carries with him. His outfit consists of a long black cape featured over black-plated armour complete with dark pants and armoured boots.
