One Piece POP Mild Kid Luffy Nico Robin Sanji Figure Reissues!

One Piece P.O.P Mild Poster Luffy Nico Robin Sanji Brook Announcement

Remember how last weekend Bandai Japan showed off Figuarts Zero One Piece figures of the entire crew of the Straw Hats as children? Yeah–I get the feeling that MegaHouse was none too happy to see Bandai thinking about encroaching on their territory. Now, this may just be a crazy coincidence, but I think it’s more likely that MegaHouse heard what Bandai was cooking up and didn’t like it. Regardless, the winners are One Piece collectors, because MegaHouse is busting out some One Piece Portrait of Pirates figures for the first time in over half a decade–reissues of the One Piece P.O.P Mild Luffy, Nico Robin and Sanji figures are now up for order!

One Piece Figuarts Zero Childhood Straw Hats Figures! Tamashii Nation

Tamashii Nation 2014 One Piece Figuarts Zero Childhood Figures Luffy Brook Franky Nami Robin Sanji Zoro

Bandai literally brought a boatload of surprise One Piece Figuarts Zero prototypes to display at Tamashii Nation 2014 over the weekend, and if there was one theme that surprised me more than any other that they brought, it was the huge multitude of One Piece children figures! While MegaHouse and Banpresto have released plenty of One Piece kid figures, Bandai Japan has never released a single one in the One Piece Figuarts Zero line. But that could all change in 2015, as Bandai Japan showed off a dozen One Piece Figuarts Zero Childhood figures at Tamashii Nation 2014!

One Piece Figuarts Zero Lucci Figure Tamashii Nations 2015

While there have been dozens upon dozens of characters released in the One Piece Figuarts Zero line, very few of those characters have been villains–and in particular, pre-timeskip villains.

But at this weekend’s Tamashii Nation 2014 event, we got a peek at many One Piece figures that could change all that–including a trio of figures from the World Government’s secret agency, CP9: Figuarts Zero Lucci, Kaku and Kalifa!

One Piece Figuarts Zero Vivi & Carue Revealed! (Tamashii Nations)

One Piece Figuarts Zero Carue Figure at Tamashii Nations Winter 2014

2014 was a pretty bleak year for Bandai One Piece Figuarts Zero collectors. I’ve gone over how disappointing the year was ad nauseam, so rather than talk myself in circles, let’s just accept it: Figuarts Zero One Piece 2014 was a bust. But while there are definitely no certainties, we at least have hope that 2015 will be a better year. And that hope was strengthened by this weekend’s Tamashii Nations 2014 event, in which Bandai Japan showcased a ton of potential new One Piece Figuarts Zero figures, including two dearly-missed friends: the One Piece Figuarts Zero Vivi and Carue figures!

Close-Up of Milky Ball Nami Figuarts Zero One Piece Figure 2015

After kicking off 2015 on the right foot with the intensely-anticipated One Piece Figuarts Zero Sabo figure, Bandai is going back to their old bag of tricks for their next release. Nobody asked for another Figuarts Zero Battle Version figure of a character who’s already had a Battle Ver. and been released countless times otherwise, but if we were going to get one anyway, we could have done a lot worse.

Coming in March 2015–One Piece Figuarts Zero Nami Milky Ball Battle Ver. will be up for order in late October 2014!
