One Piece POP Momonosuke Portrait of Pirates 2014 Figure Revealed!

One Piece POP Momonosuke Portrait of Pirates 2014 Figure CB-EX

There weren’t a lot of One Piece Portrait of Pirates figures announced at this weekend’s MegaHobby EXPO 2013 Fall show that I was hoping for. In fact, there was a grand total of one character I had been asking for revealed at the show: Momonosuke!

Of course, I probably should have been more clear with my wishes, because MegaHouse got it wrong. While we are in fact getting a One Piece POP Momonosuke figure in 2014, the one I had in mind was less a little human kid and more, well… a dragon…

One Piece Portrait of Pirates 2014 Kaku Figure CP9 MegaHouse

MegaHouse’s biggest event of the year, thr long-awaited Autumn MegaHobby EXPO 2013 finally took place this weekend in Japan! Unfortunately, most One Piece fans (and fans of other anime properties MegaHouse makes 1/8 figures for) came away from this year’s show feeling disappointed. Even so, there were still some huge One Piece surprises at the show–including this one! Coming to the MegaHouse Portrait of Pirates 2014 lineup, the One Piece POP Kaku figure joins the ranks of the Portrait of Pirates CP9!

Figuarts Zero One Piece Aokiji Battle Ver Figure Released & Photos!

One Piece Figuarts Zero Aokiji Kuzan Battle Ver Box

Earlier I posted my impressions of the just-released Bandai One Piece Akainu Figuarts Zero Battle Ver. figure, but the Red Dog isn’t coming alone! Hot on his heels, it’s the Blue Pheasant himself, Aokiji Kuzan!

But while the Battle Version Akainu Sakazuki figure surprised me with its high quality, the final production version of the FiguartsZero Aokiji Kuzan Battle Ver. figure ends up feeling a little bit mediocre in comparison…

One Piece Figuarts Zero Akainu Battle Ver Bandai Figure Released!

One Piece Figuarts Zero Akainu Sakazuki Battle Ver. Figure Close-Up

It is the rarest of phenomenons in the action figure world to have production versions of toys come out looking better than the hand-painted prototypes, but every so often this miraculous occurrence comes to pass. My expectations have been surpassed already several times by figure’s released in the Figuarts Zero One Piece line, and now it’s happened again!

As much as I disliked the prototype, the final Bandai One Piece Figuarts Zero Akainu Battle Ver. figure has now been released and looks absolutely awesome!

One Piece Portrait of Pirates Chopper POP Edition-Z Figure Review

Tony Tony Chopper P.O.P. Edition-Z MegaHouse Figure

Given that this website is named for One Piece Film Z, you might expect that I was reviewing each of the MegaHouse One Piece Z Portrait of Pirates Edition-Z figures immediately as soon as they came out. But it’s actually quite the contrary! I’ve been waiting until a decent portion of the Film Z Strawhats POPs were released before beginning my reviews. And at long last, I’m ready to begin with the first figure in P.O.P. Edition-Z: Tony Tony Chopper! You may already have a million Chopper figures, but this one is like none before it…

One Piece Z Luffy DXF Manhood Figure Banpresto 2013

I’m a total sucker for all swag from One Piece Film Z, so it goes without saying that I’ve been looking forward to the long-awaited release of the One Piece DXF Manhood: Monkey D. Luffy vs. Zetto figure set. Though this One Piece Z figures set is being released almost a full year after the movie debuted in theaters, I’m still pretty excited about it. And at long last, the One Piece DXF Manhood set is now released and available for ordering!

One Piece Master Stars Piece Trafalgar Law Figure in 2014!

One Piece 2014 Trafalgar Law Master Stars Piece Figure Head

Banpresto hasn’t exactly flooded the market with characters in their Master Stars Piece figure line, whether they be characters from One Piece or any other manga or anime. But what the Banpresto Master Stars Piece figures lack in quantity, they make up for in value and quality! Up until now only four One Piece characters have been captured in One Piece MSP form, but a fifth is about to join the line! Coming in 2014, quite possibly the most-anticipated One Piece Master Stars Piece–Trafalgar Law!

One Piece Figuarts Zero Artist Special Animal Shanks & Law Figures!

Figuarts Zero One Piece Animals Trafalgar Law Snow Leopard Figure

News has been a little bit slow this week, and I was half-begging for something interesting to talk about. I should have been careful what I wished for, though, as now I have some new upcoming One Piece figures that are a little, uh… weird… to discuss. I never thought I’d be saying anything like this, but coming soon from Bandai–it’s the One Piece Figuarts Zero Artist Special Red-Haired Shanks as a Lion and Trafalgar Law as a Snow Leopard figures!

No, really, I’m serious…

One Piece P.O.P. Edition-Z Monkey D. Luffy Photos & Up for Order!

One Piece Film Z Luffy POP Edition-Z Up for Order

When MegaHouse officially confirmed that they were going to be producing One Piece Film Z Portrait of Pirates figures, I was absolutely certain that the first or maybe second release would be the P.O.P. Edition-Z Monkey D. Luffy figure. I was wrong. Not a little wrong, but a lot wrong. But no matter!

Though he’ll be arriving well over a year after One Piece Film Z is out of theaters, the One Piece Z POP Luffy figure is finally arriving in 2014 and is now available for pre-order!
