Banpresto One Piece WCF Hana Figures Series Vivi Rouge Ivankov Perona

Could it be…?! Yes, the One Piece collecting gods have smiled down upon us, as new One Piece figures have actually been released this week! I know the One Piece World Collectable Figure Series by Banpresto isn’t for everyone, but this One Piece WCF Hana series gives us some characters that have never been done before, including a Female Ivankov figure and Portgas.

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 Grandline Children Trafalgar Law & Perona Announced!

Grandline Children Trafalgar Law One Piece Figure Banpresto

A lot of times I have tastes that differ greatly from the norm, and toys that I like a lot end up collecting dust on store shelves. Such is the case with the Banpresto One Piece Grandline Children figures series, which has had a fair number of characters released, but failed to set the consumer world aflame.

Banpresto may be looking to change that, however, as they have just announced and shown off the next two characters in the line, and they are definite cash cows: Coming in 2014–Grandline Children Trafalgar Law and Perona!

Bandai One Piece Figuarts Zero Perona Thriller Bark Ver. Released!

One Piece Figuarts Zero Perona Thriller Bark Ver Figure

There is no toy manufacturer today that makes excellent One Piece figures more consistently or reliably than Bandai. How else can you explain the fact that they released two figures this past week, one of which of a character that I absolutely detest, and yet upon seeing the production photos of said character I immediately went and placed an order for it? Regular readers know that she’s perhaps the One Piece character that I love to hate the most, and her newest figure is now available–it’s the Bandai One Piece Figuarts Zero Perona Thriller Bark Ver. figure, which has now been released!

One Piece SCultures Series 2 Perona Figure Colosseum II Released!

One Piece SCultures Perona Box Vol. 2 Series II

One of the most unheralded One Piece action figure lines that’s beginning to grow both in quality and in popularity is the Banpresto One Piece SCultures Figure Colosseum series.

While we’ve been waiting what seems like forever for the Banpresto Figure Colosseum II figures to be released, SCultures Princess Shirahoshi finally swam in last month, and this week Japan released the second entry in SCultures Series 2: Perona, the Ghost Princess!

One Piece Figuarts Zero Enel & Thriller Bark Perona Up for Order!

Bandai Enel Alternate Scared Head with Eyes Bugging Out Figuarts Zero One Piece

Bandai released the official photos of the upcoming One Piece Figuarts Zero Enel & Perona Thriller Bark Ver. figures a couple days ago, but I wanted to wait until the figures officially went up for order until posting the glamor shots–and that time has come!

Whether you’re looking to add the major antagonist of the Skypiea arc to your One Piece anime figure collection or you want one of the better versions of one of the most over-merchandised girls in the One Piece saga, the time has come to place your pre-orders!

Figuarts Zero One Piece Enel & Perona Revealed for October 2013!

One Piece Figuarts Zero Enel and Perona Pre TS Figures Bandai 2013 October

Earlier this month we broke the news of the trio of October 2013 Bandai Figuarts Zero One Piece figures: Gold Boa Hancock & Salome, Enel and pre-timeskip Perona. As it turned out, the Boa Hancock (Gold) figure was actually a (rather ugly) limited web exclusive that Bandai published photos of weeks ago. We’ve had to wait a bit longer for images of the other two figures, but they’ve finally been published: it’s the One Piece Figuarts Zero Enel and Thriller Bark Perona figures!

One Piece Figuarts Zero Enel Pre-TS Perona Gold Boa Hancock Coming!

One Piece Enel Eneru Villain Skypiea Arc Manga Anime

Bandai let us One Piece collectors off the hook easy for September 2013, with only one new Figuarts Zero One Piece figure announced for that month–the Figuarts Zero Roronoa Zoro Rengoku Onigiri Battle Ver. figure. But come October, Bandai is back to being ruthless and won’t be so merciful to our wallets, as they’re unleashing not one, not two, but three new One Piece Figuarts Zero figures: a pre-timeskip Perona, God Enel, and a gold variant of Boa Hancock & Salome!

One Piece Perona POP Sailing Again Figure Released!

One Piece POP Sailing Again Perona Figure MegaHouse 2013

One Piece POP collectors rejoice: the first One Piece Portrait of Pirates Sailing Again figure of 2013 has been released, and it’s everyone’s favorite ghost princess (not that there’s much competition), Perona!

Though her impact on the overall story in One Piece is negligible (at best), the popular wielder of the Horo Horo no Mi devil fruit powers is back with her second high-end MegaHouse POP figure!

One Piece SCultures Figures Series 2 2013 Banpresto

We’ve known the complete lineup for Banpresto’s One Piece SCultures series 2 for a while now, but now we have finally seen full-color, painted prototypes of the five figures making up 2013’s SCultures 2 for the very first time!

Here’s my thoughts on each of the five forthcoming One Piece SCultures figurines…
