One Piece POP Luffy Edition-Z Figure Released & Photos!

One Piece Z P.O.P. Luffy Figure Released

For whatever reason, MegaHouse has a really hard time capturing the main character of One Piece–Monkey D. Luffy–in plastic form. It seems rather bizarre that the One Piece P.O.P. Luffy figures keep turning out wrong, considering how many MegaHouse has produced at this point, but MegaHouse just hasn’t been able to nail Luffy’s likeness.

One Piece SCultures Brook Figure Released

Sometimes you wait so long for a figure to be released that when it finally is, the whole world feels surreal. Such is the case with this Banpresto One Piece Colosseum Brook figure, which one of the very first figures that I previewed back when I opened this site in 2012.

I’ve been pining away for this One Piece SCultures Brook figure for so long that I’m honestly in a bit of disbelief that SCultures Brook’s actually available to order now. And I’m happy to say that this is One Piece SCultures Series 2 figure that was well worth the agonizingly long wait…
