Bandai America brings us 3 characters from One Piece.

I like Anime, but I have to admit my knowledge of One Piece is very slim. What I know about One Piece can fit on the head of a pin. While I may not know that much about the show, I have seen it in geek culture a lot.  So I do know there is a huge following behind it.

Bandai America has done 2 series of their Anime Heroes line so far, and One Piece is next in the series.  In this line are Luffy, Zoro, and Sanji.

I have to say I’m quite impressed with the sculpts. They have thinner bodies than a usual action figure, but they look like they jumped right out of the anime. And these bodies are quite sturdy.

Each figure is about 6.5 inches, with about 16 points of articulation, so poseability is not an issue here. There are so many ways you can pose these guys to make you happy. Each figure also comes with removable hands so you can change things up as you like.  

I have to say that these figures have made me interested in the show, so now I have to watch it.

These are a serious must for any One Piece fan or anime fan. I would say that even if you don’t know that much about them so, they would be great for your collection.

Many thanks to Bandai America for allowing me to check these out!
