Bandai isn’t giving One Piece collectors the opportunity for their wallets to cool down, as the Figuarts Zero One Piece 2013 figures are coming out fast and furious! And this week, it’s the figure that is almost certainly going to be the best-selling Bandai Figuarts Zero figure of the year, the Punk Hazard Trafalgar Law Shichibukai figure! Prices are already exploding on the aftermarket for this Figuarts Zero Law Seven Warlords of the Sea figure, even though he only came out in Japan this week…
The original Bandai Figuarts Zero Trafalgar Law figure is among the most rare and expensive figures in the whole Figuarts Zero One Piece line, making it unobtainable for most collectors. As a result, this timeskip Trafalgar Law figure in his Punk Hazard Shichibukai attire became one of the most hotly-anticipated Bandai figures of the year.
The final manufactured version of the Punk Hazard Trafalgar Law figure looks stupendous, from top to bottom. The paintwork on the production Bandai Figuarts Zero Law figure is pretty much near perfect. The sculpted texture on Law’s fur coat changes what could have been a very boring-looking figure into a really nice piece of work.
We get an alternate smirking head for the Trafalgar Law Shichibukai figure–this time, without his hat! This is the first time that I can ever remember seeing a Law figure released by any company sans his famous hat–is there another one there that I’m forgetting? Even the paint deco and paint washes on Law’s sword and scabbard look stellar. This is all-around just a great-looking figure that doesn’t look like it will disappoint anyone. I can’t wait until my Figuarts Zero One Piece New World Law figure arrives in a few weeks and I can write up a full review of him!
This One Piece Figuarts Zero Punk Hazard Law figure has been instantly a blockbuster seller, and I’ve seen some imported ones being sold for nearly $100 already. There’s some on auction still that you can order now for a little over $50 shipped, which isn’t terrible. And if you feel like you can wait a few weeks for this Shichibukai Trafalgar Law figure to reach America, Entertainment Earth still has some pre-orders available for about 30 bucks.
