One Piece POP Mild Kid Luffy Nico Robin Sanji Figure Reissues!

One Piece P.O.P Mild Poster Luffy Nico Robin Sanji Brook Announcement

Remember how last weekend Bandai Japan showed off Figuarts Zero One Piece figures of the entire crew of the Straw Hats as children? Yeah–I get the feeling that MegaHouse was none too happy to see Bandai thinking about encroaching on their territory. Now, this may just be a crazy coincidence, but I think it’s more likely that MegaHouse heard what Bandai was cooking up and didn’t like it. Regardless, the winners are One Piece collectors, because MegaHouse is busting out some One Piece Portrait of Pirates figures for the first time in over half a decade–reissues of the One Piece P.O.P Mild Luffy, Nico Robin and Sanji figures are now up for order!

One Piece Figuarts Zero Nico Robin Dressrosa Ver. Photos!

Nico Robin Dressrosa Figuarts Zero One Piece Figure Close-Up

Nico Robin hasn’t exactly gotten a fair shake as far as the Bandai Figuarts Zero One Piece line goes. Despite being a very popular member of the Straw Hats, Nico Robin has only had one mass-released Figuarts Zero figure released to date. With the dearth of One Piece Figuarts Zero figure releases overall in 2014, I feared we might never see a mass-produced Nico Robin figure from Bandai again. Thankfully, that’s not the case, and a new Nico Robin figure is coming sooner than we expected! The One Piece Figuarts Zero Nico Robin Dress Rosa Version figure will be released in October 2014!

Figuarts Zero Dress Rosa Nico Robin Lucy Doflamingo Announced!

2014 has not been a landmark year in any sense of the word for the Bandai Figuarts Zero One Piece figures line. Bandai has skipped several months of the year altogether for the One Piece Figuarts Zero line, and we’ve yet to have a single month with more than one figure scheduled for release. At least–until now!

We’re going to have to wait a few more weeks for photos, but Bandai Japan has announced not one, not two, but three mass-released One Piece Figuarts Zero Dress Rosa figures for October 2014: Nico Robin, Gladiator Lucy and Donquixote Doflamingo!

One Piece Styling Battle Colosseum Dressrosa Figures Series!

One Piece Styling Dress Rosa Figures Luffy Nico Robin Perona Mihawk Hawkeye 2014

There’s not a whole lot for One Piece collectors to get amped about from the One Piece POP and Figuarts Zero 2014 lineups, so I guess it’s time I branch out and discuss some of the smaller One Piece lines I ordinarily might not discuss. Case in point–the Bandai One Piece Styling figures! I haven’t traditionally bought these, as they’re a cheaper but less-detailed alternative to Figuarts Zero, but with few One Piece FAZ on the horizon, these new One Piece Styling Battle Colosseum Dressrosa figures have definitely managed to get my attention…

One Piece POP Nico Robin Dereshi Ver. Exclusive Figure Reissue!

One Piece POP Nico Robin Dereshi Smiling Version

2014 has been a pretty slow year for One Piece P.O.P collectors so far, as there have been precious few new figures announced and put up for sale. Even on the reissues front there hasn’t been much, which is surprising given how many figures MegaHouse rer-released in 2012-2013. But MegaHouse has an ace up their sleeve in the form of a figure reissue that is sure to get folks buzzing and hype flowing–at the 2014 MegaHobby EXPO Spring, the legendary One Piece POP Nico Robin Dereshi Ver. figure exclusive is returning for sale!

One Piece Portrait of Pirates Nico Robin Edition Z Figure Released!

Nico Robin One Piece Film Z Portrait of Pirates MegaHouse Figure

While a couple slipped out early and the glamor shots have already started to circulate around the net, today MegaHouse officially released their second One Piece Film Z Portrait of Pirates product: the Nico Robin POP Edition Z figure!

We’ve had our fair share of P.O.P. Nico Robin figures in the past, but this may take the cake as the best (and unquestionably the most scantily-clad) of them all…

Figuarts Zero One Piece Z Roronoa Zoro, Nico Robin, Brook Released!

Figuarts Zero One Piece Z Roronoa Zoro Box Figure

It took Bandai a little while to get started with releasing their Figuarts Zero One Piece Film Z Straw Hat Pirates, but a couple weeks ago they released the first trio of Monkey D. Luffy, Tony Tony Chopper and Franky. And now, Bandai is done with two-thirds of the crew, just like that! Japanese collectors who pre-ordered the limited web exclusive Figuarts Zero One Piece Z Roronoa Zoro, Brook and Nico Robin have begun to receive their figures! YO HO HO!

One Piece Grandline Children Nico Robin Figure Review

One Piece The Grandline Children Nico Robin Box

Considering the sheer number of One Piece figures I’ve reviewed just in the last half year, it’s pretty crazy to think that there’s an entire major branch of One Piece figures that I hadn’t even touched upon yet. But as it so happens, I just hadn’t had to opportunity to purchase any one the Banpresto One Piece Grandline Children figures–at least, until a couple weeks ago, when I decided to get my feet wet and pick up the Grandline Children Nico Robin figure! I was (and am) pretty satisfied with the low prices of the Grandline Children figures, but Nico Robin isn’t exactly what I was expecting…

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 Z POP Nico Robin Figure Up for Order!

One Piece POP Edition Z Nico Robin Figure Poster MegaHouse June 2013

I don’t believe I’ve ever said the term “babealicious” in my life, but I don’t believe there’s a more suitable word for MegaHouse’s next Portrait of Pirates release: the One Piece Z Nico Figure figure! I was certain that the first One Piece Film Z POP to be released after Chopper would be Luffy, but there’s no denying this POP Edition Z Nico Robin is a hotter choice!
