The new year has just begun, but already my early pick for my favorite MegaHouse One Piece P.O.P figure of 2014 has arrived! Recently, MegaHouse has started a trend of recreating and improving past Portrait of Pirates figures such as Red-Haired Shanks and Mihawk Hawkeye. That trend continues into the new year with a new version of an old favorite who’s rarely captured in toy form these days. Just released in Japan and now available for order–it’s the One Piece P.O.P. DX Princesss Vivi Nefertari figure!
The first time I watched the Alabasta arc of the One Piece anime, I was not enamored with Princess Vivi Nefeltari. To be blunt, she seemed like a whiny and useless character. As always, though, Oda-sensei worked his magic with the character, and by the time we said good bye to Vivi, she had become a sentimental favorite.
So when MegaHouse announced this new Princess Vivi figure last fall, I was overjoyed and had sky-high expectations.
The MegaHouse 2014 Vivi Nefertari figure features some of the most well-done and visually-appealing paint deco that I’ve seen on any OnePiece figure ever released. All of the paint appears to be masterfully applied, and the golden accents of Vivi’s jewelry really make the figure pop.
A figure this pretty deserves an equally ravishing display stand, and MegaHouse has provided that in the form of Vivi’s pink and white figure stand. The dual colors of the base reflect Vivi’s attire perfectly while not distracting from the figure at all–in short, it’s the ideal stand.
The One Piece POP DX Vivi Nefertari figure has now been released and is available for order online. I pre-ordered my Princess Vivi P.O.P. DX figure last year, and will post photos and a review of the figure once I have it in-hand next month.
Based off of these photos of the just-released One Piece Portrait of Pirates Vivi Nefertari model, will you be ordering this newest (and in my opinion, best-ever) Princess Vivi figure, One Piece collectors?
