One Piece King of Artist Sanji Figure Up for Order! Banpresto

One Piece King of Artist Sanji Banpresto Figure

I’ve been talking a lot lately about spectacular One Piece figures that have already been released by Banpresto, but tonight I’m going to turn the spotlight on one that hasn’t yet been released. Sanji hasn’t exactly been relevant in the One Piece anime for the last year or more, but fans thirsting for new Sanji merch will soon have their needs met: the impressive 10″ Banpresto King of Artist Sanji figure is now available for order!

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!

Plenty of people said it would never happen, but MegaHouse has done the unthinkable–they’ve released five One Piece Portrait of Pirates figures–three of which brand new–in one month’s time! Earlier in the month of September 2013, MegaHouse released One Piece POP Gol D. Roger, Whitebeard Ver. 0 and a reissue of the original Whitebeard.

You’ve waited all month, Bandai fans, and now you can feast your eyes on the Bandai One Piece Figuarts Zero Sanji Diable Jambe Flambage Shot figure for the very first time!

I announced this figure at the very beginning of August, but as usual, Bandai has kept the figure’s appearance under their vest until they’re ready to begin pre-orders. But that time is now, and the Figuarts Zero One Piece Sanji Battle Version #2 figure has now been revealed!

It’s becoming tradition here on One Piece Z to break the news about new One Piece Figuarts Zero figures about three weeks before we see photos, and now we have the chance again! For the final One Piece Figuarts Zero figure of 2013, Bandai’s controversial choice is the Figuarts Zero Sanji Battle Ver. 2 Devil Kazaashi Finishing Touch Shot figure! I have some really mixed feelings about this new Sanji …

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 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 Sanji Battle Ver. Figure Review

One Piece Figuarts Zero Sanji Battle Ver. Figure Box

I feel like I spend an awful lot of time on this blog defending the Bandai One Piece Figuarts Zero line. I certainly don’t set out to clash with the popular sentiment about the Figuarts Zero One Piece line, but, well–almost every time I get a new figure I’m so impressed I can’t help but sing its praises. I thought today’s figure would be an exception to that trend, but once I got the Figuarts Zero Sanji Battle Ver. Figure in my hand, he ended up being yet another excellent Bandai One Piece figure I can’t help but commend…
