One Piece POP Nami BB Edition-Z Photos & Pre-Order!

One Piece POP Nami Ver. BB Figure

About a month ago, word broke that MegaHouse had finally announced a One Piece Film Z Nami Portrait of Pirates figure! With having been over a year since the release of the last POP Edition Z figure, I was stoked for the Nami Edition-Z figure. And now, after all this time, the One Piece POP Nami BB Edition-Z figure is available for order!

But, uh… unfortunately, this Nami Film Z figure isn’t exactly what I was expecting…

Close-Up of Milky Ball Nami Figuarts Zero One Piece Figure 2015

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!

While the One Piece POP Nami Mugiwara Ver. figure doesn’t win the prize for the most risque figure Nami’s ever done, she still won’t be for everyone…

One Piece POP Nami Mugiwara Ver. Figure Debuts at C3 X Hobby 2013!

One Piece Portrait of Pirates Nami Mugiwara Ver. Limited Figure Close-Up

Fans poured into the C3 x Hobby 2013 expo at the Makuhari Messe International Convention Complex this weekend, excited to see the latest and greatest upcoming anime collectibles. I wasn’t terribly interested, as we’d seen so many upcoming One Piece Portrait of Pirates figures the past few months I was certain nothing new would be on display. Well, it’s good I had zero expectations, because otherwise I would have been really bummed when the only new MegaHouse One Piece figure to debut at the show was this crazy P.O.P. Nami Mugiwara Ver. figure…

Figuarts Zero One Piece Nami New World Figure Review

Figuarts Zero One Piece Nami New World Ver Figure Box

Completing the triumvirate of reviews of Figuarts Zero One Piece figures that I’m frankly not crazy about, today I’ll be discussing the Nami New World Ver. Figure! Considering that Nami is a gorgeous babe, you would think every company would be churning out beautiful figures of her without a hitch. But, well… the MegaHouse POP Sailing Again Nami figure had problems I had a hard time getting past, and this …

Figuarts Zero One Piece Z Aokiji and Child Nami Figures Announced!

One Piece Figuarts Zero 2013 Figures Film Z Aokiji and Kid Nami

For the collectors who just can’t get enough One Piece Film Z merchandise, Bandai has got something unexpected coming your way next week: pre-orders for two more Figuarts Zero One Piece Z figures! We hadn’t heard anything about there being more figures in the One Piece Film Z Figuarts Zero line in a couple months, so I assumed Bandai was at their limit. But instead, pre-orders open next week for the next two web-exclusive entries in the Figuarts Zero One Piece Film Z figures: timeskip Aokiji and an 8 Year Old version of Nami!

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…

Figuarts Zero One Piece Nami Battle Ver. Figure Review

One Piece Nami Head Close-Up Figuarts Zero Battle Ver. Figure

One of the reasons I’ve been covering the One Piece Figuarts Zero figures on this blog so emphatically is that I want to make sure that one of the most unjustly bashed sources of One Piece merchandise has its positives emphasized. Case in point: the Figuarts Zero One Piece Nami Battle Ver. figure. As soon as this Nami figure was released, photos of one badly-painted figure circulated the web and the bashing and swearing off of the Figuarts Zero Nami Battle Ver. figure began. This figure just looked so nice to me, though, that I went ahead and bought it anyway. And I’m glad I did–despite the negative press it’s received, this Nami figure is my favorite sculpture of her from any company…

One Piece POP Sailing Again Nami Figure Review MegaHouse

One Piece Sailing Again P.O.P. Nami Figure Close-Up MegaHouse

Although she’ll never be the strongest member of the Straw Hat Pirates, the cat burglar and navigator Nami is unquestionably one of the most popular characters in One Piece and all of anime and manga. So when it came time for MegaHouse to begin their post time-skip One Piece P.O.P. Sailing Again line of excellent models, Nami was alongside Monkey D. Luffy and Tony Tony Chopper in the first trio of figure releases. Though there is tons of Nami merchandise (and previous One Piece POP figures) on the market, this Sailing Again Portrait of Pirates Nami figure is extremely nice and definitely worthy of joining any One Piece fan’s collection…
