Figuarts Zero One Piece Ace Cross Fire Metallic Ver Repaint Figure

Ace Cross Fire Battle Version figure that Bandai released at the start of 2014. If you missed out on that figure and don’t want to pay $200 for it on the aftermarket (or get an inferior counterfeit bootleg from Hong Kong), then you’re in luck! As the One Piece Figuarts Zero exclusive for the winter Tamashii Nations 2014 event, Bandai is bringing us a repaint of the coveted Ace: the Figuarts Zero Portgas D. Ace Battle Ver. Special Color Edition is now up for order!

After kicking off 2015 on the right foot with the intensely-anticipated One Piece Figuarts Zero Sabo figure, Bandai is going back to their old bag of tricks for their next release. Nobody asked for another Figuarts Zero Battle Version figure of a character who’s already had a Battle Ver. and been released countless times otherwise, but if we were going to get one anyway, we could have done a lot worse.

Coming in March 2015–One Piece Figuarts Zero Nami Milky Ball Battle Ver. will be up for order in late October 2014!

One Piece Figuarts Zero 2014 Shanks Battle Version Action Figure

There’s probably no bigger advocate out there for the Bandai Figuarts Zero One Piece figures line than me, but even I have to admit that Bandai has me scratching my head in 2014. Thus far we’ve seen zero new characters put up for pre-order in 2014, and the only new mold in Q1 2014 is the much-hated Trafalgar Law Battle Ver.

Unfortunately, things aren’t looking up just yet–the next figure now available for pre-order is the all-new (and all-underwhelming) Figuarts Zero Shanks Battle Ver.!

One Piece Figuarts Zero Aokiji Kuzan Battle Ver Box

Earlier I posted my impressions of the just-released Bandai One Piece Akainu Figuarts Zero Battle Ver. figure, but the Red Dog isn’t coming alone! Hot on his heels, it’s the Blue Pheasant himself, Aokiji Kuzan!

But while the Battle Version Akainu Sakazuki figure surprised me with its high quality, the final production version of the FiguartsZero Aokiji Kuzan Battle Ver. figure ends up feeling a little bit mediocre in comparison…

It is the rarest of phenomenons in the action figure world to have production versions of toys come out looking better than the hand-painted prototypes, but every so often this miraculous occurrence comes to pass.

Trafalgar Law Timeskip Battle Ver Figure

Trafalgar Law is a pretty popular guy. By which I mean “earth-shatteringly, riot-inducingly” popular–perhaps more popular than any other singular character in the entire One Piece franchise. Yes, Trafalgar Law is a popular guy. So it should come as no surprise that, following the crazy blockbuster success that was the 2013 Figuarts Zero Trafalgar Law Punk Hazard figure, Bandai is opening up 2014 with another Law. Coming February 2014–Figuarts Zero One Piece Trafalgar Law Battle Version figure!
