One Piece POP Bartolomeo Figure Review & Photos

One Piece POP Bartolomeo Figure Review

The second that Bartolomeo walked on-screen in the One Piece anime for the first time and spoke, I instantly knew he was a character I was going to love. And so, I went ahead and pre-ordered the MegaHouse P.O.P LIMITED Bartolmeo figure the day it went up for order.

Unfortunately if you need him, Bartolomeo sells for hundreds of dollars on the aftermarket now, but this figure is so outstanding he just may be worth it…

One Piece POP Roronoa Zoro Edition Z Figure Review & Photos

MegaHouse Portrait of Pirates Zoro Z Edition Figure

As we’re still condemned to the barren wasteland of non-existent One Piece figure news, it’s time I move on to my review of the next character in the One Piece Film Z POP figure collection.

Though he wasn’t the last of the five One Piece P.O.P. Edition-Z figures to be solicited, he is the one that showed up last in stores. The One Piece Z Portrait of Pirates Roronoa Zoro is available now for the drastically reduced price of about $60 shipped–should you buy one? Read on…

MegaHouse One Piece POP Luffy Film Z Figure Review & Photos

One Piece POP Edition-Z Luffy Film Z Figure Review

I’ve been slacking on new One Piece figure reviews thus far this year, but with the lull in new releases, I figure now is the perfect time to catch up! I’ve got a pretty hefty backlog of One Piece figures and collectibles waiting to be reviewed from the past six months, so bear with me if some of the items I review in the near-future aren’t quite the newest things to ship.

First up, it’s the One Piece POP Edition-Z Monkey D. Luffy figure! You can get this P.O.P. Luffy Film Z figure for about $60 shipped now online, and he is worth every penny…

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 POP Trafalgar Law Sailing Again Figure Review

POP Trafalgar Law MegaHouse Figure with Arms Crossed

I was seriously considering just pretending that the newly-released MegaHouse Trafalagar Law P.O.P. Sailing Again figure didn’t exist until winter, so that I could take the official review photography of the Punk Hazard Law Portrait of Pirates figure in the snow. But, well, judging by the numerous messages I’ve gotten asking why I haven’t reviewed Law yet, I’ve surmised that people would prefer not to wait. So I present to you, accompanied by illogical summer outdoor photos, my review of the all-new 2013 One Piece P.O.P. Trafalgar Law Sailing Again figure!

Bandai Figuarts Zero One Piece Bepo Figure Review

Bandai Bepo Figuarts Zero Figure with Angry Head Face

I’ve been giving an inordinate amount of attention to the Straw Hat Pirates crew lately, so for today’s review I’m going to cover something different. And by different, I mean “totally different”. As in “kung fu polar bear pirate wearing an orange jumpsuit” different. If you guessed that I was talking about Bepo from Trafalgar Law’s Heart Pirates crew (and really, how couldn’t you?), you’re correct! Bepo was released in the first year of the Bandai One Piece Figuarts Zero line and can cost you a small fortune to obtain. Is this one-of-a-kind bear beast worth the big bucks?

One Piece POP Sailing Again Sanji Portrait of Pirates Figure Review

One Piece Sailing Again Sanji POP MegaHouse Figure Close-Up

Today we’re going to step back in time, as I review one of the best One Piece figures released by any toy company in 2012. As one of the first members of the Straw Hats Pirates crew, Sanji the cook has had an uncountable number of figures released over the years. Some of those figures have been pretty decent, but MegaHouse set the new bar sky-high with this amazingly superb One Piece P.O.P. Sailing Again Sanji figure that they released in the Portrait of Pirates line last year…

MegaHouse One Piece POP Boa Hancock Blue Ver. Figure Review 2013

Boa Hancock Blue Ver. One Piece Portrait of Pirates Figure

Every once in a while I’ll end up buying a toy that maybe I don’t need (and yes, I’m pretty certain I do need toys to live). Case in point: the just-released MegaHouse One Piece P.O.P. Boa Hancock Blue Ver. figure. This Portrait of Pirates figure is a limited POP EX, where the “EX” stands for “EXtra”–as in, you don’t necessarily need this figure to feel like your collection is complete. But, well… clearly I felt I needed this blue Boa Hancock figure anyway, enough to have her air-shipped via EMS from overseas immediately after release. Was this blue One Piece Boa Hancock figure worth the bucks?

One Piece POP Sailing Again Roronoa Zoro Portrait of Pirates Review

One Piece POP Roronoa Zoro Sailing Again Figure Close-Up

It’s been a while since I spent some time giving a MegaHouse One Piece Portrait of Pirates figure the in-depth review treatment that it deserved, so I decided to take some time today and write a lengthy review of one of the biggest releases of the past year: the One Piece POP Roronoa Zoro Sailing Again figure! But while he’s my pick for the best New World Zoro figure from any toy company, Sailing Again P.O.P. Zoro is certainly not without his share of problems…

One Piece POP Limited Tony Tony Chopper DX Figure Review

One Piece POP Chopper Figure Limited DX MegaHouse

If there’s one One Piece character that has had more than his fair share of merchandising, it’s the “pet raccoon dog” of the Straw Hat Pirates, Tony Tony Chopper. There have been so many Chopper figures in the last few years that it boggles the mind. So it would take something pretty extraordinary to get me excited for yet another Chopper figure. And that something extraordinary just happens to be the MegaHouse One Piece POP Limited Tony Tony Chopper DX Figure released in late 2012…
