The BB versions are priceless. Has MH cancelled the Queens Blade line so the sculptors from it were transfered to OP?
And it seems Lao G is the first cancelled POP too. At this point, I kinda wish MH released him.
Throughout this month, we will be testing new features (like search) so you may experience some hiccups from time to time. We'll try to not be too disruptive...

Corazon and Law mild
Do you mean the events get rereleased or will he be rereleased on some other way?
I'm going to keep training my units, it's really hard to do so, as turtles don't drop as much as I would and using the normal goons are costing me too much belies. I'm saving my remaining ones for the 1.5xExp that's going to be released in a few days. Also saving the Friend Points and the fruits for the next sugofest and the turtles thingy, so really few new units and a few space left.
Btw, Thank you guys for the help!
I tried it with a friends Vivi. After taking 15 minuts to clear the first round, the goons on the second locked all my units and destroyed me. I don't think I'll be able to win this….
Do they rerelease events?
What's the recommended stats to try for the elite and expert missions? I was destroyed by Cobymeppo elite and I'm affraid to try Monster Chopper…
Thank you guys again!!
What the best way to level characters up? I've just did my first turtle island but only purple ones dropped. Is there a way to get other colors to drop? If not, what do you guys use?
Also, does the order of defeat affect the drops? I mean, if I take the grunts first before the boss, will I lose my chances to get the boss drop if one of the grunts gives me a treasure?
Thanks!! Btw my ID is 330.844.533 located in Mexico, but trying my best to use a fake GPS to play the friends game. So far no luck.
Thank you for the links!
I have a couple of additional questions. Is there a Pirate Level cap? How can you farm characters? I've been doing the same missions over and over, but nothing drops…. Should I only farm those with a x2 drop rate?
What a waste of a figure…. My money was ready to buy her battle suit, but that will not happen, as she doesn't show her boobs there....
I just got an smart phone and this was my first app. Can someone some advise on how the game works? Thanks!!

Boa is not from Banpresto, but from Plex. I really want to see what color spread they base her after.
Edit: Loooks like a Zoro VAH is also in the list and a Dressrosa WCF set. And some good news for Dragon Ball fans.
It looks like Nami Z-Edition is comming next. About time!!
"Portrait.Of.Pirates ワンピース“LIMITED EDITION-Z” ナミVer.BB" Scheduled for September (or something like that)
That's like the One Piece merchandise schedule or something. There's a DPCF Hancock there too. I hope it's true.
Tamashii Nation and Megahobby are both on the same day this year!!! May 30th is gonna be an explosive date!!
Looking forward to seeing new POP's, DOD's, SH Figuarts & Figuart Zero's!!
33 DAYS TO GO!!
I love Tamashii Nations events. They show 30+ new prototypes just to never release them. I don't know why they waste their money paying sculptors.
Also for the first time I'm not even slightly excited about what MH will show. I had enough of their choices. I stopped buying their PoPs and I've been focused on the IK line and getting cutom based figures of characters I'd like to own a 1/8 of.
Btw. Corazon IK painted:
What's this game about?
P.O.P milds are cheap i saw robin go for $20 what happened.
Their rerelease happened.
Hey there. Does anybody of you have any experience with Crunchyroll? I got a preorder that was supposed to be shipped the end of february but is now delayed to end of march.
Is this delay 'normal' for Crunchy (I know that they are getting their stock later than other shops)? And what are your expericenes with them? Did you get all the things you ordered?
Thanx for the replies…
From what I read on MFC, it's perfectly normal for CR to get their stuff later than supposed to.
Well, the spirit here is kinda low latelly….
! POPs are not what they use to be, but neither is the One Piece scene. When I started collecting, there was only the POPs to look forward (in terms of scaled figures). FAZ and GLM were iniciating, and IK was merelly a concept. So I was willing to do preorder wars for them, because that was basically the only chance I had.
! Now I feel that with the multiple rereleases, redoes, second versions and lines, there's plenty to choose from. So I started to wonder, how many figures of the same characters do I need? What does the new one offer that the old one was missing? Is this one the best? Do I need a 7k POP of that character or a 3k FAZ/IK will do me enough? And so on…
! Megahouse figure choices didn't help them at all, and surprisingly I found myself skipping POPs more often than not. I still love the line, but I just can't care enough about the bunch of 2nd versions and Dresrossa characters (I didn't conect with the arc at all) they are throwing at us.
! I got tired of waiting for MH to step up the game, and started digging the other lines and options more. I had no troubles settling with "lower" figures of the characters I didn't love enough to want the POP of, but still wanted a figure of. And I found myself searching the nets for custom figures of characters I really want a POP of but I'm affraid will never have.
So maybe this will make someone happy. Corazon IK!!
GLM vol 22. Law + Corazon
And yeah, that Nami is really bad….
On a side note, I just got a package from my Japanesse Proxy with my Ichiban Kuji stuff and 2 awesome customs:
And Afro Luffy
Pictures from a prize event in Japan with Banpresto stuff. Looking forward to see more pictures of Mihawk and Law. Nami not so much…
There's a Wizard figure announced?
As far as I knew, the line (for now) consisted of Samurai (2 versions), Hacker, Miku, Psychic and Lucier/Rushe.
The later is up for PO starting today I believe, but for some reason she's really expensive (I really don't see why, she looks so much more plain than other girls in the line? Also it's only 8% off on AmiAmi)…
I think I'll wait out with it and see what happens.
Also I'm getting the recoloured Samurai since I don't have the original and I honestly like new one better! Just got payment request for her in today U_U Thank god it's SAL-able!
No, I meant the sculptor who did Samurai, Hacker, Miku and Psychic (and also Tharja and Samus). I really like his work and I don't think we see anything from him this WonFest.
As for Lucier, she is made by another company, not Max Factory, so it's not exactly from the same line. That's why the she looks more plain and it's more expensive.
Got Psychic tody… God I love this line U_____U
Hope I'll have enough money to pay for Samurai re-release that's about to happen! T_T I need to pay off money I own Louis too (Lu you're a saint for waiting for it for so long ;-;)
I still need to get that Psychic. I have the original Samurai, so I'm not sure I'll need the rerelease, still tempted by the changed colors. I really missed Wizard on this WFest….
I'm slightly disappointed with this WonderFest. Nothing really that interests me…
Sabo's face looks pretty bad…. And I'm not interested on that Koala. IK made a better work on those 2.
Bon-chan looks good, but the limited tag is off putting....
No Lao G news, I guess he really is cancelled.
It's not a give away though right? They put them up for reservation on Megatreshop and if there's enough stock available you'll still be invoiced for the purchase?
Seems planned if you ask me…........unless their distributors pulled out as I thought LIMITED were a kinda "made to order" quantity?............
No, it's a lottery. Same happened with Sadie-chan, Shiki and SA Franky a year(?) ago. They accept "orders" from Frebruary 3rd until February 23rd, but will only fullfill them randomly until the stock is over. So if 300 people preorder them during that period, but only 50 POPs were left on their wharehouse, only one out of 6, in random, will get a confirmation order.
I don't know if there was a comment about it when it was released, but I just had time to check the last character poll. Out of the Top 25, Megahouse has done at least one POP of each character. If you exclude the Dresrossa poeple due to the hype (and recent release), you can see that every single character has got 2 POPs but Doflamingo and Smoker, with Crocodile having a special mention as he got a repaint recently.
If you take a look into the top 50, Kyros, Buggy, Ceaser, Cobby, Pell, Sr. Pink, Urouge and Margarette (and a special mention to Bepo who got a POP Plush….) are the only ones without a POP.
If MH decides to take a look into it, we might see some of them next? I thought a SA Dofla, SA Smoker and Kyros would have been announced by now, but if they do Cobby, Pell or Buggy next I might die.
On I side note, I find it odd that there's no sign of Momonosuke or Kinnemon on the poll. They might be really unpopular to not even be on the list considering their part on the current arc. This might mean we will never see a Kinnemon POP after all unless he shines on the next arc. And I really miss Magellan, Jaybura and Mr. 3. I would have thought they were more popular than some of the characters who made into the top 101... I guess I was really wrong.
Hi everyone! I hope you guys had a nice New Year.
I'm finally home after my trip to Spain, so what did I miss this past month and a half? I saw some new IK set on YAJ with Sabo and a new version of Ace, any info on them?
And what about the POPs? Who was this month preorder? Brook mild?
There won't be any POP's for pre-order this month.
For once I'm glad. It will give me time to save up.
What exactly is MegaHouse planning to put up for order next week? None of the new POPs look like they're ready to go up for sale, really…
I'm guessing CB-R2 Nami, Nojiko and Zoro, and maybe Mild Brook and Boa. "Cancelling" Lao G might have forced them to replan their schedule, and filling it with a 1.5 version of the mild ones might have been the fastest way to amend that.
I'm pretty sure Killer is more popular than Tashigi.
And I expected Smoker and Tashigi to get TS POPs, I don't know why they didn't (they may still).
Believe me, I don't like neither Supernovas nor Smoker & co, I don't really want to see their figures made, especially not the noobs, but alas! Where is Law now and look at all the Kid&Killer stuff.
We'll get Jump's Character Popularity Poll results in soon :ninja::ninja::ninja::ninja::ninja:
Boobs on the POP though ughhh…
I'm looking forward to that poll too. I'm curious on what the Japanesse like and what not. Maybe it will give me some knowledge of what to expect.
But as you don't like Smoker and the Supernovas, I don't like Rebecca, Cavendish, Sugar, etc. I don't see them being more popular than the first, but we'll see on the poll.
I also don't like Zoro, Boa, Ace, or Law, and I'm still undecided about Sabo, but I get their popularity so I'm prepared to see lots of figures about them. But what I'm not prepared is to see what I consider second tier characters get a second PoP while other second tier characters don't have any. But maybe what I consider second tier is not actually second tier. I'll have to wait and see what the popularity poll says.
Aside from that, this MH was 10 times better than the last. I didn't conect with any of the Dresrossa characters shown so far aside from Barto, so I had no desire of them getting figures, so last MH was a big fail for me. However, from this one I have Brook mild to look forward. Boa's child version is just ok. I'd like them to center more on the adults from the flashbacks too. I'd love a Zeff, Hiluluk, Tom, Fisher Tiger and Corazon. But I understand it's probably too much to ask.
Also one of my favourite arcs is Impel Down, and Bon-chan is my favourite non strawhat character, so I'm really happy they made him again. But I can't really feel the joy as it bothers me that there are lots of other relevant characters from that arc that don't have a POP already and would have loved to see made first, like Magellan, Buggy or, Ivankov, whitout whom Luffy would not be alive nowadays.
And regarding Kid & Killer's popularity, time-skip figures only, based on a brief scene in one manga chapter:
Ya really need more proof? You think they are doing all this just cause, no reason at all? No fangirl milking? Oh please.
–- Update From New Post Merge ---
Koala was properly introduced... as a child, yes, but she was featured in more than 1 chapter, fully presented, with a name box, and even had makeover transition. She also had figures made:
So pleaaaaaaaaaaaaaseeeeeeeeeeeee… Comparing her to Big Mom and Kaido especially has to be a joke...
So? SA Smoker and Tashigi has had the same amount of figures and yet they don't have an SA POP. So are they not popular enough but Killer is?
Koala was introduced way before Dressrosa and she got a POP whistles
Not the right kind of POP. She was introduced on Dresrossa as a full character. It's like considering Kaido or Big Mom already introduced characters because we know of them.
And I still don't get how Killer is popular. But I guess I just don't follow the norm. His POP didn't sell well, I can asure that though. And it didn't have the excuse of being to big to be send SAL.
He is all over YAJ too at 2k-3k, so Japaneese might not love him that much either…
How is Kinemon "too old" if he's still with the crew in the present story and is going into next arc of Wano Kuni? O.o I'm honestly WTFing at Hawkins among this list too ^^;
Also, look at absolutely-out-of-nowhere classic Zoro and Impel Down Bentham. Nothing is "too old" when it comes to Megahouse.
I don't really think they're focusing on anything. They did 2 MILDs, 2 pre-TS popular characters, 2 post-TS popular characters and 2-uber popular+important characters.
And none of that is a character introduced before the Dresrossa arc or that didn't had already a POP. Exactly the same happened last Megahobby. So I see a patern there, which would mean no Kin'emon, Ceaser, Monet or Baby 5. Also considering that from the past 2 years we only got 2 figures outside that pattern, both before Dresrossa was introduced, I have no hopes.
And sorry for considering Hawkings among them, but you considering Killer among the popular ones is also laughable. His fist PoP is still selling for 2-3k.
Also it's like, don't new versions of the already made character and re-printings target different audience?.. Reprints are for newcomers who missed the figure back in the day and also for the crazy collectors who get all versions of everything released within the line so they cover that area of collectors via updating the colouring just a bit or fixing something they think they failed with in the first wave. Different figures of the same character target character's fans who only get figures of the heroes they like.
Smoker and Tashigi DID get a re-make over original versions of the figure though.
And Ace has like 5 unique POPs including MILD >_>
Yes they do, but none of them appeal to those who want only one figure from each One Piece characters. They only have Dresrossa characters from this past year, which IMHO is an uderwhelming arc.
Kanji, they did another Goku for the D.O.D line. There's still hope I gues!!
And a Vegetta too. So go and order Piccolo and Goku!! This is looking like a long line!!
And I understand what you mean Alina, but that was not what I meant. I included second versions, as it's what they have been doing latelly. Shanks, Mihawk, Vivi, Marco, Lucci (although it's a completelly different form) Ace, and now Bon-chan, plus SA versions of those who have show up like Perona, Law, Kid, Killer, etc.
I forgot to add Smoker and Tashigi to the list, but again, those would be too logic.
I think we will never see Kin'emon, Monet, Baby 5, Magellan, Buggy, Hawkings, SA Tashigi, SA Smoker, SA Jinbei, Ceaser, and the likes. They are too old to get a figure now. They seem to focus on only creating new figure of characters introduced on Dresrossa and second versions of characters pre timeskip. A pitty.
The 2 ultimate old POPs with no upgrades are still Bellemere and Usopp+Chopper skypia ver.
Well, Chopper an Usopp have both got lots of new upgrades in new version forms.
Bellemere I see as a grail. I don't think they would mess up with her.
So who is left to get a new version/repaint/ver. 1.5?
From the NEO line:
From the DX line:
Dofla (which would have been logic…)
Jinbei (also logic...)
What are your bets on the next Megahobby? I think they might do the admirals. Dofla and Jinbei would be too predictable for them.
That Hancock better have some extras, because right now it looks to static. The GLC is better, but that's the case for almost every mild.
Edit: I just wanted one single new pre TS character, and they disappointed again. I do believe they will never do the remaining characters. Time to move on I guess.
So once again, they didn't do any new character pre TS? Not a single one? Great….
Wait for HLJ. Box dimensions are the same as MAS Lucci, and they are the only place to ship him SAL, so you may get him shipped for around 2,000 yen.
Only problem is, it's unlikely he'll get discounted, so you'll still be looking at 11K yen with shipping…........I can't imagine he'll ever go 50% off at HS, but even if he does 4,975 + 6,200 for EMS makes him more expensive.......
Bottom line, it's unlikely you'll snag him for any less than 11K............which is why I passed.........too expensive for what it is............
Edit: Seems everyone had the same idea........I think Fujitora may have been SAL at HLJ as it's now discontinued............I imagine he'll be back up tomorrow though...........HLJ never sell out of POPs!! haha
If he is EMS only, then I'll look for him on YAJ. My proxy can ship him SAL for me. I only need it to get down in price….
My point wasn't to compare popularities, it was about SnK being very popular and only getting top-3 popular characters in figures for the most part so far.
The problem with SnK is that the license is not own by one single company, like One Piece. So all the companies work against each other and release the same characters over and over to try and outsell the others. Also, GSC, Koto, Pulchra, etc. are not interested in creating an ongoing line for any series. They only make few popular characters out of them and move on to the next hot thing.
Sentinel is the only one that's doing that with their Brave-ACT line, which already has the only scaled figures of Armin, Erwin, Hange and Titan Eren. I'm pretty sure if the sales support it, they will eventually do the rest of the cast. Just don't expect GSC, Koto or any other company to do it.
Why are you so defensive when he is trying to help
On another note, should I get Robin Dereshi or the tanned Robin MIlD?! Which is cuter I can't decide…..
Dereshii, because it's limited. CB-R1 Robin can hit the bargain bin, so you can grab her later.
Also, that smiling face is just too good too miss…
Let's just wait 10 days to find out! I imagine she'll be up there along with Sabo, Koala, and hopefully Kin'emon…...
They're doing Lao G, so at this point all bets are off......I'm not even going to try and predict what we'll see.......it's just too random!!
Knowing Megahouse, we might get Señor Pink, Dofla's father and Fishmen revolutionary before Sabo, Baby 5, Koala or Kin'emon.
I'll be just happy if they show Brook mild prototype and a new non done before pre TS character. I just need only one. At this point, I don't really care who.
Don't worry Kanji…. Thanks for trying!! I knew it was a long shot. HS bargain bins has always eluded me...
Time to stalk other places then....
HS now have Law Ver.2 on bargain sale!!
For god sake when are they gonna put Bellamy up!!
If you see Bellamy on sale, could you order one from me? I'm always missing on HS sales because of time zone differences. I log in here daily, but by the time I see those links, some are already sold out (I'm looking at you Marco!!!). I believe there's a free cancellation period, so it wouldn't risk your account if you can't contact me in time.
MSP Shanks pictures, from amiblo.com
I was expecting something better… I dont know why, but the MSP line hasn't caught my attention at all. Law and Eren are the only ones I consider any good, but I have already enough of him.
Is that Cry Heart vol. 3? I was not expecting that.
DRAMATIC SHOWCASE vol. 4 was what everyone guessed. I prefer the Ichiban Kuji, but seeing the prices of it, I might have to settle with this one. The sculpt looks almost identical.
And it's nice to see WCF going back to it's main line with Punk Hazard.
The FAZ look really good in those pictures, too bad the size is not close to the POPs at all, or I would have bought those some a long time ago.
Do you have pictures of the Ichiban Kuji with the POPs, Kanji? Do you feel they are underwhelming too? How are their size compared to the POPs?
I own a few IK (Whitebeard and Roger, Nightmare Luffy, Chibi Shirahoshi) and I'm really impressed with the sculpt and quality considering they are prize figures. I was contemplating buying more of them (Ryuma, Tashigi, Smoker, Kid, Killer) to display with the POPs, but I don't know if they will blend well or stick out like the styilings in your picture. Thanks!
Wasnt there something just on? Announcing Koala for GLL vol 4?
It's from the Prize Fair.
Here are some pictures:
And here are a small pic of Shanks MSP and 2 new figures of Aokiji and Zoro, which I don't know what line are them from….
for the hell i care, they decided to make her with this skin tone deal with it (same with blue eyes story).
Someone is in a bad mood….
I don't actually need to deal with it, I already own her white skinned. I was just saying that to me the first one was the most accurate, because I compare it to the manga, which is what I follow. If you find it more accurate, because you follow the anime, good for you.
I just find it amusing that you invented a story to justify the random change in her skin tone, because that's what you did after all.
I'm fine with only Brook. I was so worried that Megahouse had stopped releasing pre Dresrossa figures (the dream poll ones doesn't count) that having Brook announced has given me some hope to see Buggy, Magellan or Ivankov sometime in the future.
As for more children, I rather see them on GLC form than in POP. They are a lot better IMHO.
I don't know if you guys heard of the new Prize Fair announces, but here are them:
Nope not at all,it is the white skin who's off,when she was young she lived a poor life and spent hours under the sun which is explaining the tan skin,it's later that she became white by staying in the dark amd taking care of herself.
lol That's the funniest thing I read all that. I'm amused that you find a reason why the anime crew decided to change her skin tone. As for me, she is as inaccurate as it can be. Here's a color spread done by Oda, where you can see her white skinned. He is the one I'll go to when I want accuracy. It helps I haven't what a single episode of the anime.
Also, this is the color spread the new FAZ Children is based about, except they changed all the costums.
