2014 One Piece POP Dressrosa Law & Rebecca Figures Revealed!

MegaHouse Dress Rosa Law Portrait of Pirates 2014 Figure Close-Up

One of the pitfalls of running a One Piece collectibles site that doesn’t spoil beyond the current point in the anime is that oftentimes companies show new OnePiece figures and merchandise that I can’t really go into detail about yet.

This was a problem a few weeks ago when half the figures MegaHouse debuted at MegaHobby Expo 2013 were ones not seen yet in the manga, but it’s an even bigger problem this weekend, as neither of the new One Piece POP figures shown at Jump Festa 2014 have appeared yet in the anime…

Jump Festa 2014: Figuarts Zero One Piece Artist Special Figures!

One Piece Figuarts Zero 2014 Red Dog Akainu Artist Special Limited Figure

In the days leading up to this weekend’s Jump Festa 2014 event in Japan, I heard some totally insane rumors going around. Maybe I was just in denial, but I refused to believe that the main One Piece products that Bandai was planning to push at the 2014 Jump Festa event were going to be a whole new assortment of the crazy, off-the-wall Figuarts Zero One Piece Artist Special figures of the One Piece characters as animals. Well… the rumors were true.

So, uh… anyone want a bizarre Admiral Akainu as an anthropomorphic dog man figure? And if you like that, there’s plenty more where that came from…

Jump Festa 2014: Figuarts Zero One Piece Baby-5 Figure Revealed!

Bandai One Piece Figuarts Zero Baby-5 Figure Close-Up Jump Festa 2014

There are some characters in the One Piece manga and anime that, literally the moment you see them for the very first time, you’re certain are going to be characters that will get a tsunami of figures and merchandise produced for them. It’s been a little while since I had that feeling, but this fall when Baby-5 appeared for the first time, I had no doubt she’d be appearing in figure form before long. And at Jump Festa 2014 this weekend, the gun-toting maid assassin made her first major toy appearance in the form of the Figuarts Zero One Piece Baby-5 figure!

One Piece Figuarts Zero Portgas D. Ace Special Color Edition Photos

One Piece Figuarts Zero Portgas D. Ace Special Color Edition Figure

Last month I was less than amused when Bandai announced that their next Bandai Collector’s Shop exclusive figure was going to be a crazy metallic painted Figuarts Zero Monkey D. Luffy Special Color Edition figure. The notion of Luffy wearing a cloth shirt and denim jeans colored with sparkly paint just seemed ludicrous to me.

Luckily, Bandai has rebounded with their next announcement and put together one of their nicest repaints ever. Coming in May 2014–One Piece Figuarts Zero Portgas D. Ace Special Color Edition!

Jump Festa 2014 One Piece Figuarts Zero Shanks Battle Ver Revealed!

Jump Festa 2014 One Piece Figuarts Zero Shanks Battle Ver. Figure

I had heard earlier this week what figures Bandai planned to debut at this weekend’s huge Jump Festa 2014 event in Japan, but I wanted to wait and make sure the information was credible before posting. Well, the 2014 Jump Festa is now underway, and it turns out that the rumors were true: a brand-new One Piece Figuarts Zero Shanks Battle Ver. Figure is coming our way in 2014!

But, well… don’t get too excited until you see him…

One Piece SCultures Franky Shogun Figure Photos & Impressions!

One Piece General Franky Shogun SCultures Figure Close-Up

Traditionally, Franky has always been the least popular of the Straw Hat Pirates. Why is a mystery to me–Franky is my third favorite Mugiwara after Nico Robin and Brook–but facts are facts, and Franky is unpopular. Whatever the reason, Cyborg Franky merchandise has always been a tough sell. But One Piece manga author Oda-sensei may have found the cure for that malady when he created the awesome Franky Shogun mech, which instantly became more popular than Franky himself! And in 2014, the Banpresto SCultures Franky Shogun figure will arrive…

One Piece Colosseum SCultures Kin’emon Figure Photos & Preview!

Banpresto Figure Colosseum III Kinemon SCultures One Piece Figure

As soon as Fox Fire Kin’emon showed up during the Punk Hazard arc of the One Piece manga and anime, I was certain that he was going to be a figure of great import that would be getting a ton of page-time, screen-time, memorable battles and merchandise. But then a funny thing happened–we went months and month with him getting none of the above–and most painfully of all, no figures!

Thankfully, Banpresto will remedy that in 2014, when the One Piece Figures Colosseum Kinemon SCultures figure is released!

One Piece SCultures III Chopper Figure Photos & Impressions!

Banpresto One Piece Colosseum Tony Tony Chopper SCultures Figure Crying Close-Up

If there’s one character for whom the One Piece collectibles market is well and truly saturated, it’s Tony Tony Chopper. At this point, the number of Tony Tony Chopper figures out there is easily in the hundreds, making it a minor miracle that Banpresto managed to get through the first two One Piece Figure Colosseum SCultures series with nary a Chopper figure to be found. All good things must come to an end, though, and everyone’s favorite anthropomorphic reindeer is about to make his debut–the SCultures III Chopper figure ships in 2014!
