POP One Piece Portgas D. Ace 15th Anniversary Painted Figure!

One Piece P.O.P 15th Anniversary Fire Fist Ace Figure

MegaHouse surprised us at the Spring 2014 MegaHobby Expo, when they unexpectedly debuted an all-new version of an old favorite: Portgas D. Ace!

There’s a lot of pressure on MegaHouse to make the One Piece POP 15th Anniversary Portgas D. Ace figure the best version of Ace ever, and at the Summer 2014 Wonder Festival, we got to see that they’re well on their way to making this piece a success!

Figuarts Zero One Piece Gladiator Lucy Figure Photos!

Over the weekend the spotlight shone on a character that doesn’t get nearly enough merch when I discussed the One Piece Figuarts Zero Nico Robin Dress Rosa Ver. figure. But Nico Robin isn’t the only member of the Mugiwaras Bandai is giving the Dressrosa treatment! In fact, the captain of the Straw Hats himself will be getting the Figuarts Zero treatment again this fall–that is, if you can recognize him through his clever disguise!

Coming in November 2014–the Figuarts Zero One Piece Gladiator Lucy figure!

One Piece Figuarts Zero Nico Robin Dressrosa Ver. Photos!

Nico Robin hasn’t exactly gotten a fair shake as far as the Bandai Figuarts Zero One Piece line goes. Despite being a very popular member of the Straw Hats, Nico Robin has only had one mass-released Figuarts Zero figure released to date. With the dearth of One Piece Figuarts Zero figure releases overall in 2014, I feared we might never see a mass-produced Nico Robin figure from Bandai again. Thankfully, that’s not the case, and a new Nico Robin figure is coming sooner than we expected! The One Piece Figuarts Zero Nico Robin Dress Rosa Version figure will be released in October 2014!

Figuarts Zero Dress Rosa Nico Robin Lucy Doflamingo Announced!

2014 has not been a landmark year in any sense of the word for the Bandai Figuarts Zero One Piece figures line. Bandai has skipped several months of the year altogether for the One Piece Figuarts Zero line, and we’ve yet to have a single month with more than one figure scheduled for release. At least–until now!

We’re going to have to wait a few more weeks for photos, but Bandai Japan has announced not one, not two, but three mass-released One Piece Figuarts Zero Dress Rosa figures for October 2014: Nico Robin, Gladiator Lucy and Donquixote Doflamingo!

One Piece Figuarts Zero Violet Figure Revealed & Photos!

Bandai Figuarts Zero Violet One Piece Figure

Yesterday I woke up to the disappointment of thinking that I was going to see prototype photos of the Bandai Figuarts Zero One Piece Violet figure and ending up with images of an unexpected Figuarts Zero Shanks Special Color Ver. figure instead. Today–it really is Violet! MegaHouse beat Bandai to the punch by debuting their own P.O.P Violet figure at the MegaHobby Expo Spring 2014 last month, but Bandai’s Violet Figuarts Zero figures should arrive in our hands first. The real question is, do Bandai’s efforts surpass MegaHouse’s…?

One Piece Figuarts Zero Shanks Special Color Ver. Revealed!

Bandai One Piece Figuarts Zero Shanks Special Color Version Figure

It’s another case of good news/bad news for us One Piece collectors! Good news: Bandai has finally revealed another new One Piece Figuarts Zero figure after what seems like eternity (but is only actually about a month). Bad news: It’s yet another repaint of an old figure. Good news: It’s one of the best and most popular Figuarts Zero One Piece figures. Bad news: It’s a Japan-only Bandai Tamashii Web Shop Exclusive. Coming our way in fall 2014–the One Piece Figuarts Zero Shanks Special Color Ver. figure!

One Piece Figuarts Zero Rebecca Figure Up for Order!

While there are plenty of worthwhile characters in the New World that haven’t been given their moment in the sun yet merch-wise, one character that absolutely doesn’t have to worry about being passed over when it comes to One Piece figures is Gladiator Rebecca! Though all she’s done thus far in the One Piece anime is stand around, she’s already had numerous figures lined up including a One Piece P.O.P Rebecca and three One Piece Super Styling Rebecca figures. But if none of those figures have been to your liking, you now have one more option to choose from–the One Piece Figuarts Zero Rebecca figure is now available for order!

One Piece POP 10th Anniversary Ace Figure Revealed!

One Piece POP 10th Limited Ace Figure Revealed

Oh, my my. MegaHouse is just full of surprises at this weekend’s 2014 MegaHobby Expo Spring event! At a conference at 14:00 Japan time today, they revealed the last several new One Piece Portrait of Pirates figures that are going to be announced at the show.

And while I was certain we’d be seeing a new Law and a new Nami–the two characters who won the MegaHouse One Piece Dream Poll–MegaHouse threw us a curveball instead. But oh man, what a curveball! Coming in late 2014–the One Piece P.O.P LIMITED 10th Anniversary Ace figure!

MegaHobby EXPO Spring 2014: One Piece POP Kid Rebecca Figure!

One Piece Portrait of Pirates Rebecca Child Figure Mild MegaHobby EXPO 2014 Spring

Earlier I discussed the One Piece Portrait of Pirates Fujitora and Viola figures that MegaHouse debuted this weekend at the MegaHobby Expo 2014 Spring event. While neither of those characters will ever break into the upper-echelon of most popular One Piece cast members, they’re not without their fans either. But other than those two characters, MegaHouse made some rather “interesting” choices for new One Piece POP figures for 2014. And perhaps most surprising–and unwelcome from many collectors–is the One Piece POP CB-EX Rebecca (child) figure!

One Piece POP Viola (Violet) Figure Revealed & Photos!

One Piece POP Viola Figure MegaHobby EXPO Spring 2014

Of the characters that people seemed to be putting on their One Piece Portrait of Pirates wish lists for this weekend’s MegaHobby Expo Spring 2014, I saw relatively few people asking for one of the more prominent characters in the current One Piece Dressrosa arc–the Donquixote Pirates assassin, Viola (sometimes called “Violet”).

But MegaHouse is turning a deaf ear to naysayers and expanding their One Piece P.O.P Dressrosa line even further! Coming in Fall 2014–the One Piece Portrait of Pirates Viola figure!
