One Piece Z Portrait of Pirates Luffy Edition-Z Figure Painted!

One Piece Z Portrait of Pirates Luffy Figure Edition Z 2014 Close-Up

While the only totally new MegaHouse One Piece figure shown off at the C3 X Hobby 2013 event this weekend was the bizarre (but halfway charming) P.O.P. Nami Mugiwara Ver. figure I talked about earlier today, that’s not the only bit of newness they had at the show.

MegaHouse also brought another sculpt they’d shown us months ago, now painted for the very first time–the captain of the Straw Hat Pirates, it’s the POP Luffy Edition-Z figure in all his painted glory!

One Piece POP Nami Mugiwara Ver. Figure Debuts at C3 X Hobby 2013!

One Piece Portrait of Pirates Nami Mugiwara Ver. Limited Figure Close-Up

Fans poured into the C3 x Hobby 2013 expo at the Makuhari Messe International Convention Complex this weekend, excited to see the latest and greatest upcoming anime collectibles. I wasn’t terribly interested, as we’d seen so many upcoming One Piece Portrait of Pirates figures the past few months I was certain nothing new would be on display. Well, it’s good I had zero expectations, because otherwise I would have been really bummed when the only new MegaHouse One Piece figure to debut at the show was this crazy P.O.P. Nami Mugiwara Ver. figure…

One Piece POP Shanks Box MegaHouse 2013

I sure hope your wallet (or credit card) had the chance to cool down from the immensely expensive One Piece Portrait of Pirates Sailing Again Franky figure that came out earlier this month, because MegaHouse is back to work with their newest regular release figure: the 2013 P.O.P. Neo-DX Shanks!

This isn’t the first One Piece POP Red-Haired Shanks figure, but it is unquestionably the best Shanks ever (and one of the best Portrait of Pirates figures overall)!

You’ve waited all month, Bandai fans, and now you can feast your eyes on the Bandai One Piece Figuarts Zero Sanji Diable Jambe Flambage Shot figure for the very first time!

I announced this figure at the very beginning of August, but as usual, Bandai has kept the figure’s appearance under their vest until they’re ready to begin pre-orders. But that time is now, and the Figuarts Zero One Piece Sanji Battle Version #2 figure has now been revealed!

One Piece Figuarts Zero Jinbe Figure Review (Bandai)

Jinbe Figuarts Zero One Piece Bandai Action Figure

After the bitter disappointment of not seeing a new One Piece Portrait of Pirates Jinbe 1.5 figure version announced at the 2013 Summer Winter Festival in Japan, I decided to curb my sadness by finally busting open the Bandai One Piece Figuarts Zero Jinbe figure! I waited months and months for this figure to go on sale for a good price on Amazon, and once it did I pounced on it. Now that I have him, I’m very pleased–Jinbe is an outstanding addition to the Figuarts Zero One Piece line and even a better figure than the MegaHouse P.O.P. Jinbe!

MegaHouse One Piece POP Aokiji Kuzan Edition-Z Figure Up for Order!

One Piece Z Portrait of Pirates Kuzan Aokiji Edition Z with Ice Arm

Yesterday I discussed one of the final two MegaHouse Portrait of Pirates figures of 2013, and today I’m finishing up with the one remaining OnePiece POP figure.

Like the Leopard Form Lucci POP I previously discussed, this is another character that we’ve seen released twice before by MegaHouse in One Piece P.O.P. form. And like Lucci, this is a vastly different version of the character than we’ve seen before–from the One Piece Film Z anime movie, it’s the former Marine Admiral Aokiji Kuzan POP Edition-Z figure!

First up, it’s the last One Piece POP Neo-DX Figure pre-order of the year. While we’ve already seen CP9’s top agent–Rob Lucci–twice before in MegaHouse P.O.P. form, we’ve never seen him before like this.

At long last, the MegaHouse One Piece Portrait of Pirates Franky Sailing Again figure has arrived! With more options, moving parts and accessories than any One Piece POP figure ever, the Armored Franky is a spectacular vision of anime figure to behold at any price (which is fortunate, because P.O.P.
