One Piece POP Monkey D. Luffy Ver. 2 Photos & Order Info!

One Piece POP Sailing Again Luffy Ver. 2 Poster

Welcome back, One Piece collectors! No, I don’t blame you for thinking that I’d abandoned you. It’s just that there hasn’t been a whole lot worth talking about on the One Piece collectibles front. The Winter MegaHobby EXPO was a disgrace as far as One Piece figures go, and I haven’t been able to get up the gumption to talk about it.

But there is one light left in the tunnel–the MegaHouse POP Sailing Again Monkey D. Luffy Ver. 2 is now up for order!

One Piece POP Viola (Violet) Figure Revealed & Photos!

One Piece POP Viola Figure MegaHobby EXPO Spring 2014

Of the characters that people seemed to be putting on their One Piece Portrait of Pirates wish lists for this weekend’s MegaHobby Expo Spring 2014, I saw relatively few people asking for one of the more prominent characters in the current One Piece Dressrosa arc–the Donquixote Pirates assassin, Viola (sometimes called “Violet”).

But MegaHouse is turning a deaf ear to naysayers and expanding their One Piece P.O.P Dressrosa line even further! Coming in Fall 2014–the One Piece Portrait of Pirates Viola figure!

One Piece POP Bellamy the Hyena Figure Photos & Order Info

2014 One Piece P.O.P. Bellamy Hyena Dressrosa Figure

In case you hadn’t noticed, it’s been a little quiet around here lately. And by “a little quiet”, I mean you could hear a tumbleweed blow past. No, that’s not because I’ve given up this site or stopped collecting One Piece figures–it’s because there simply hasn’t been anything worth talking about. But finally we got a news item worth being excited about today–the pre-order announcement for a long-anticipated character! The One Piece P.O.P. Bellamy the Hyena figure will be going up for pre-order this week–and he may be released sooner than you think…

Chopper Horn Point Portrait of Pirates 2014 Figure Up for Order!

One Piece POP Horn Point Chopper Figure MegaHouse Poster

I’m long since over Tony Tony Chopper. I passed the point a long time ago where I stopped seeing Chopper as being “cute” and started wanting to punch him in the face every time he opened his mouth for being weak and annoying. So I fully expected MegaHouse was not going to be able to win my praise with any Chopper they showed off for the One Piece 2014 Portrait of Pirates line. But, well… then MegaHouse had to go and show this amazing Horn Point Chopper P.O.P., which is now up for pre-order!

MegaHouse P.O.P. Franky MAXIMUM Doing SUPER Pose

You’ve waited, One Piece P.O.P. fans. No weeks or even months, but years. It hasn’t been a short or pleasant wait, but good things come to those with patience. Or in this case, SUUUUPERRRRR things! At long last, the MegaHouse One Piece Portrait of Pirates Franky Sailing Again figure has arrived! With more options, moving parts and accessories than any One Piece POP figure ever, the Armored Franky is a spectacular vision of anime figure to behold at any price (which is fortunate, because P.O.P.

One Piece POP Trafalgar Law Sailing Again Figure Review

POP Trafalgar Law MegaHouse Figure with Arms Crossed

I was seriously considering just pretending that the newly-released MegaHouse Trafalagar Law P.O.P. Sailing Again figure didn’t exist until winter, so that I could take the official review photography of the Punk Hazard Law Portrait of Pirates figure in the snow. But, well, judging by the numerous messages I’ve gotten asking why I haven’t reviewed Law yet, I’ve surmised that people would prefer not to wait. So I present to you, accompanied by illogical summer outdoor photos, my review of the all-new 2013 One Piece P.O.P. Trafalgar Law Sailing Again figure!

One Piece P.O.P. Trafalgar Law Sailing Again Figure Released!

One Piece Portrait of Pirates Law Sailing Again Box Front

If you’re a fan of the One Piece manga and/or anime, you’ve probably heard of this character “Trafalgar Law” once or twice. See, though he’s not a member of the Straw Hat Pirates, Trafalgar Law is sort of popular. As in “ridiculously, out-of-this-world, cult-like following” popular. Yeah, that’s Law. So when it was announced late last year that we’d been getting an all-new One Piece P.O.P. Sailing Again Trafalgar Law figure in his Punk Hazard clothes, it was kind of a big deal. And after much hype and many instant sell-outs, the latest MegaHouse One Piece Portrait of Pirates Trafalgar Law figure has arrived overseas…

One Piece P.O.P. Sailing Again Roronoa Zoro Reissue in October 2013

One Piece POP October 2013 Mihawk Hawkeye and Roronoa Zoro Reissue Figure

Yesterday I previewed the upcoming 2013 One Piece P.O.P. Mihawk Hawkeye Version 2 figure, the brand-new update of the most serene Shichibukai and the World’s Greatest Swordsman. This new Portrait of Pirates Mihawk is coming our way in October 2013–but he won’t be coming alone!

Joining One Piece POP Dracule Mihawk Ver. 2 that month will be the man who’s sworn to usurp and overthrow Mihawk as the World’s Greatest Swordsman–it’s a much-demanded reissue of One Piece P.O.P. Sailing Again Roronoa Zoro!

One Piece POP Sailing Again Sanji Portrait of Pirates Figure Review

One Piece Sailing Again Sanji POP MegaHouse Figure Close-Up

Today we’re going to step back in time, as I review one of the best One Piece figures released by any toy company in 2012. As one of the first members of the Straw Hats Pirates crew, Sanji the cook has had an uncountable number of figures released over the years. Some of those figures have been pretty decent, but MegaHouse set the new bar sky-high with this amazingly superb One Piece P.O.P. Sailing Again Sanji figure that they released in the Portrait of Pirates line last year…

One Piece POP Sailing Again Roronoa Zoro Portrait of Pirates Review

One Piece POP Roronoa Zoro Sailing Again Figure Close-Up

It’s been a while since I spent some time giving a MegaHouse One Piece Portrait of Pirates figure the in-depth review treatment that it deserved, so I decided to take some time today and write a lengthy review of one of the biggest releases of the past year: the One Piece POP Roronoa Zoro Sailing Again figure! But while he’s my pick for the best New World Zoro figure from any toy company, Sailing Again P.O.P. Zoro is certainly not without his share of problems…
