One Piece Z POP Roronoa Zoro & Aokiji Kuzan Figures Photos & Info

One Piece MegaHouse Portrait of Pirates Roronoa Zoro POP Edition Z Close-Up

Now that I’ve covered both of the newly-revealed MegaHouse figures from the Japan Summer 2013 Wonder Festival (AKA the pair of surprisingly awesome new Tony Tony Chopper figures), it’s time to move on to two figures that we saw again for the very first time at the event: the One Piece Z Portrait of Pirates Roronoa Zoro and Aokiji Kuzan Edition-Z figures! We saw them earlier this summer in unpainted prototype form, but now we’ve seen the finished painted prototypes and even know when they’ll be joining our collections…

Wonder Festival Summer 2013: One Piece P.O.P. Crimin Chopper Figure

Wonder Festival 2013 MegaHouse Crimin Chopper Exclusive Figure

Yesterday I talked about one of the two brand-new (non-repaint) figures that MegaHouse showed over the weekend at the Summer 2013 Wonder Festival in Japan: the upcoming P.O.P. Sailing Again Horn Point Chopper. Though that figure was unpainted, that new Portrait of Pirates timeskip Chopper figure was still enormously cool and many fans are already excited for it. The other new figure MegaHouse debuted at the event was also an addition to the POP Sailing Again line, and is (surprise!) also Chopper: the One Piece P.O.P. Crimin Chopper figure!

One Piece Figuarts Zero Aokiji & Akainu Battle Ver. Figure Photos!

One Piece Figuarts Zero Akainu Battle Ver. Figure

We’ve been waiting all month to see hi-res photos of the much-anticipated One Piece Figuarts Zero Admiral Aokiji Battle Ver. and Admiral Akainu Battle Ver. figures–and just in time for the pre-order, Bandai has delivered!

There some blurry, low-quality magazine scan photos of these figures released last week, but I thought those photos made these Figuarts Zero One Piece figures look pretty bad, so I decided to wait to post the official photos. Well, the official photos look better, but even so, I’m disappointed in this duo…

MegaHouse One Piece P.O.P. Horn Point Chopper Figure Coming in 2014

Wonder Festival 2013 Summer MegaHouse Tony Tony Chopper Horn Point Antlers

The Summer Wonder Festival Summer 2013 show took place over the weekend, and while most of the figures on display were exactly what we were expecting (painted versions of figures we had already seen before), two brand new sculpted MegaHouse figures also debuted at the event–and both were Tony Tony Chopper!

By far the most exciting of this pair was the completely unexpected arrival of the timeskip Tony Tony Chopper Horn Point Portrait of Pirates figure!

One Piece POP Limited Metallic Brook Funky Donkey Ver. Announced!

MegaHouse POP Sailing Again Brook Funky Donkey Metallic Ver. Figure

A couple days ago word slipped out that we were getting a new One Piece Portrait of Pirates Sailing Again Brook figure. Dubbed the “One Piece P.O.P. Sailing Again Brook Funky Donkey Ver.” (don’t blame me, I didn’t name it), speculation immediately ran wild as to exactly what would make this One Piece Brook POP figure special.

Well, now we know exactly what this Brook figure is, and, well… prepare for disappointment…

Limited One Piece POP Kalifa Figure Finally Up for Pre-Order!

MegaHouse POP Limited Kalifa Figure Promotional Poster

It truly must be the end of all things, because the last of the MegaHouse One Piece POP figures previewed in 2012 has finally been solicited for pre-order!

I never had any doubt that she was going to be released, as we’ve never seen a MegaHouse Portrait of Pirates figure yet, but I sure was starting to get impatient.

Now up for pre-order and scheduled to be released in December 2013–the One Piece Portrait of Pirates Kalifa figure!

One Piece Figuarts Zero Ace Cross Fire Battle Ver. Exclusive!

Bandai Figuarts Zero One Piece Fire Fist Ace Cross Fire Battle Ver. Figure

Though he’s been dead for years in the One Piece anime, manga and even the story’s world, fans still can’t get enough of Portgas D. Ace! Monkey D. Luffy’s only surviving brother (yeah, right), Ace was among the absolute most popular characters in the One Piece anime despite his limited appearances in the story. Last year’s Figuarts Zero One Piece Fire Fist Ace Battle Ver. figure was a hot commodity on the market, so Bandai is giving (some) fans what they want–this all-new, limited One Piece Figuarts Zero Fire Fist Ace Cross Fire Battle Ver. #2 figure!

One Piece Portrait of Pirates Nico Robin Edition Z Figure Released!

Nico Robin One Piece Film Z Portrait of Pirates MegaHouse Figure

While a couple slipped out early and the glamor shots have already started to circulate around the net, today MegaHouse officially released their second One Piece Film Z Portrait of Pirates product: the Nico Robin POP Edition Z figure!

We’ve had our fair share of P.O.P. Nico Robin figures in the past, but this may take the cake as the best (and unquestionably the most scantily-clad) of them all…

Tsume Roronoa Zoro One Piece Statue Revealed!

Tsume Art One Piece Roronoa Zoro Statue

Never in my wildest dreams did I think that less than two weeks after discussing the upcoming Bandai Chogokin General Franky Shogun diecast figure, I would have a One Piece item not just more expensive, but vastly more expensive to discuss.

If you thought that the Chogokin Franky Shogun was pricey at $250, you’re in for a serious case of sticker shock. Tsume Art has unveiled their first ever high-quality statue based on the One Piece manga and anime–Roronoa Zoro–and it costs a quiver-inducing $500+…

One Piece POP Kalifa Finally Announced for December 2013!

One Piece POP Limited Kalifa Figure Exclusive CP9 December 2013

One Piece collectors have been wondering and dreaming about the One Piece Portrait of Pirates Kalifa figure ever since late last year, when the unpainted prototype was first revealed by MegaHouse. First Kalifa was revealed as a general release, but at a show earlier in 2013, she was switched to being marked as a P.O.P. LIMITED figure that would be a store exclusive. But still, no pre-orders.

Finally, though, the day CP9 fans have been dreaming of is at hand–MegaHouse has now announced the limited Kalifa POP figure will be released in December 2013!
