MegaHobby EXPO – One Piece: STRONG WORLD

017The MegaHobby Expo event, which will run through October 2nd-4th, will be held in Akihabara UDX. A bunch of early coverage from the usual sources has been released and oh boy, MegaHouse is on a roll adding more to their P.O.P series. Then again, I guess that’s what was to be expected after their announcement at Chara Hobby 2009 of their upcoming 1/8 Luffy Strong Edition, and 1/8 Tony Tony Chopper Strong Edition figures.

Judging by the image below it looks like MegaHouse will be releasing STRONG EDITION figures as part of the upcoming “One Piece: STRONG WORLD Movie” which will premier this December 12th. I’m very behind with all those awesome One Piece movies that have been coming out in recent years, so I have no clue what the “STRONG WORLD” movie is about.

The image also shows a chart that tells you when each figure will be released; Luffy and Chopper are slated to come out this December 2009, Zoro and Nami (February 2010), Nico Robin and Usopp (April 2010), Sanji and Brook (June 2010), Franky (July 2010), and two more versions with formal wear of Zoro and Tony Tony Chopper (August 2010).


Completed prototypes of Zoro and Nami were shown at the exhibition and ohmygod, they look amazing! DO WANT.

016P.O.P STRONG EDITION  NamiFebruary 2010 release at 5,565 yen

018Also, three new One Piece Theater Straw figures have been announced! Sanji, Nico Robin and Usopp will be coming out January 2010 for 1,890 yen each.

MegaHouse is trying to drain my wallet dry. The detail on Zoro is very stunning and Nami there looks very gorgeous. I can honestly say they’ve improved on their P.O.P series compared to their earlier releases years ago. I have to start collecting the P.O.P series before many more come out and start piling up on me. ( ; w;). AAAHH SO MUCH TO BUY!

    ive watched most of the One Piece movies, can wait for this one. The quality of P.O.P series has gotten better! im considering picking up Luffy, Chopper, Zoro, Robin, and tuxedo Chopper looks cute… seriously not good for the wallet XD

    im kinda glad i now that i didnt buy the earlier releases because these are much better, though i still kinda want Usop and Nami ^^;

      Chopper looks very cute! And the tuxedo versions look awesome!
      I still want the earlier versions, but these new ones are tempting me to get first. ^^;;
