While Banpresto got their One Piece Z movie merchandise out beginning last December, tt’s been quite a long six-month wait for One Piece Film Z fans to get the very first One Piece Z Portrait of Pirates figure! Though we first saw Chopper more than half a year ago, he got delayed twice from his April 2013 release date before finally hitting stores overseas this week! And just in case you’re not a fan of the pirate hat that the Tony Tony Chopper POP Edition-Z figure comes wearing, he’s got two alternate hats that can take its place…
That’s quite a big box for such a little Chopper figure! If POP Edition-Z Chopper looks smaller and younger than usual, that’s because this figure represents the de-aged child Chopper from One Piece Film Z. It really is a good-looking box, isn’t it?
As we see on most of the Tony Tony Chopper One Piece Z figures, this Chopper is decked out in his “final battle” clothes with full pirate captain hat, sword, coat, and rifle. But that’s not all! Besides his classic full-blown pirate hat, Chopper also includes a sword, figure stand display base, dew rag bandana, and classic pink top hat.
The Chopper pink hat is a bit of a surprise, as I initially thought that this accessory was only going to be released with last year’s MegaHouse POP-DX Limited pre-timeskip Tony Tony Chopper figure. Nice to see the pink hat Chopper got from Dr. Hiluluk appear in Portrait of Pirates form here without having to buy that ultra-expensive (but awesome) exclusive Chopper figure.
I love this Chopper figure wearing his dew rag bandana on his head! The full pirate hat looks a little over the top to me, but the bandana look totally suits Chopper! And yes, you can stack all three of POP Edition-Z Chopper’s hats on top of his head at once. And yes, it is downright adorable.
If you’re looking to order your own One Piece Film Z Chopper POP figure, there are plenty now up for sale. My MegaHouse P.O.P. Tony Tony Chopper Edition-Z figure is on its way from Japan now, and I hope to have a full review and photo gallery of the Portrait of Pirates One Piece Z Chopper figure by next week.
