This statue is actually one of my most rarest variants.  It may not strike out at you right away, but unlike the normal edition's greenish-silver, this armor is pure silver.  I thought this exclusive edition was a myth until I saw a fellow Berserk collector own one.  Coincidently, a silver one popped up on Yahoo Auctions Japan a few months later and I won it.  I emailed Art of War about this variant and its legitimacy, and they told me it's a VERY rare Japanese Toys R Us Exclusive.  The statue was never sold directly through Art of War.

The price tag is quite hefty for simply a different color scheme, especially since the normal edition is already a beautiful statue to begin with (I used to own one of them as well as a Glow-in-the-Dark variant).  However, for me personally, after receiving my Skullknight on Horse (which is silver), I grew fond of the color and wanted to have a matching set.  Now that I finally have it, I don't regret spending a single penny.  It truly is one of my grail pieces.

Another exclusive edition that is worth mentioning is the Green-Weathered version.  This one is gorgeous and admittedly painted with more detail than my Silver one.  The shield has these vein-like designs that span from one end to another, and the sword has bright highlights that go along the center of the blade.  It's hard to describe but it's really a sight to behold.  Kudos to anyone who owns that piece!

In terms of the Skullknight statue in general, the piece is one well-sculpted figure!  All the spikes and intricacies of the armor and bones really show that a lot of effort was put into making this statue.  Art of War did a commendable job.  EVERY Berserk statue collector should try their best to own one of the versions.  It's Berserk at its best.
