One Piece POP Mild Brook Child Figure Up for Order!

One Piece P.O.P. Mild Brook Figure MegaHouse 2015

For over half a decade, the One Piece P.O.P. Mild Strawhats children have been short a member. Though the first eight members of the Mugiwaras were released by MegaHouse as One Piece POP Mild children by January of 2009, the Straw Hat’s musician, Brook, was absent from the group. Over the years, One Piece collectors accepted that the MegaHouse One Piece Portrait of Pirates Mild Straw Hat Pirates crew would always be complete. But no longer–! First revealed earlier this winter, the One Piece P.O.P. Mild Brook figure is finally available for order–at a great price!

MegaHobby EXPO Fall 2014: One Piece Child Brook & Boa Hancock!

MegaHouse One Piece 2015 Brook and Boa Hancock POP Mild Figures

Bandai Japan seemed like they were toying with the idea of being the first-to-market with a human child Brook figure when they showed off a prototype Figuarts Zero child Brook at Tamashii Nation 2014 last month.

That must have really cheesed MegaHouse off, because now they debuted their own One Piece POP Mild Brook figure at MegaHobby EXPO Autumn 2014–and he brought along a friend: POP Mild Boa Hancock and Brook are on their way in 2015!

One Piece Figuarts Zero Childhood Straw Hats Figures! Tamashii Nation

Tamashii Nation 2014 One Piece Figuarts Zero Childhood Figures Luffy Brook Franky Nami Robin Sanji Zoro

Bandai literally brought a boatload of surprise One Piece Figuarts Zero prototypes to display at Tamashii Nation 2014 over the weekend, and if there was one theme that surprised me more than any other that they brought, it was the huge multitude of One Piece children figures! While MegaHouse and Banpresto have released plenty of One Piece kid figures, Bandai Japan has never released a single one in the One Piece Figuarts Zero line. But that could all change in 2015, as Bandai Japan showed off a dozen One Piece Figuarts Zero Childhood figures at Tamashii Nation 2014!

One Piece SCultures Brook Figure Released & Photos!

One Piece SCultures Brook Figure Released

Sometimes you wait so long for a figure to be released that when it finally is, the whole world feels surreal. Such is the case with this Banpresto One Piece Colosseum Brook figure, which one of the very first figures that I previewed back when I opened this site in 2012.

I’ve been pining away for this One Piece SCultures Brook figure for so long that I’m honestly in a bit of disbelief that SCultures Brook’s actually available to order now. And I’m happy to say that this is One Piece SCultures Series 2 figure that was well worth the agonizingly long wait…

Figuarts Zero One Piece Film Z Brook Figure Review (Web Exclusive)

One Piece Film Z Brook Figuarts Zero Figure Head Close-Up

It’s probably good that Brook is my favorite character in the One Piece anime and manga for a couple of reasons. Firstly, toy companies don’t seem to make a ton of Brook figures, so I don’t go bankrupt trying to buy them all (and believe me, I buy virtually every new Brook figure that comes out). But the other reason is that it’s good that my favorite character is Brook is that every Brook One Piece figure that does come out is fantastic. Case in point is the subject of today’s review: the Bandai Figuarts Zero One Piece Film Z Brook figure!

One Piece Film Z WCF Vol. 3 Straw Hats Figures Released!

One Piece Film Z WCF Vol. 3 Set Boxes

It seems like just yesterday that One Piece Z WCF Vol. 1 came out, but it was actually “way” back in December! Two more months brought two more sets, and the third of the four series of Banpresto WCF figures for One Piece Film Z has now been released overseas: One Piece WCF Film Z Vol. 3! But while the character selection can’t be faulted, the quality control on this set leaves a lot to be desired…

One Piece Figuarts Zero Brook New World Ver. Figure Review

One Piece Figuarts Zero Brook New World Version Close-Up

The first time I ever saw Brook and realized he was going to be part of the Straw Hat Pirate crew, I was like, “Oh HELL no!” I was convinced the insane loving skeleton was going to disrupt the chemistry of the crew and I was determined that I would never accept Brook as a member of the Strawhat Pirates. Predictably, he’s my favorite member of the crew now. The …
