"Portrait of Pirates"
(Hopefully no one wrote of this topic yet). I was wondering if anyone here has bought any or even collecting them. Megahouse released these last year and the first 3 (Luffy, Nami and especially Zoro) are VERY, VERY hard to get (at least for me here in Toronto w/o spending a lot of money on'em). I was fortunate enough to obtain a Nami for $90 CDN cuz I can't get a discount using VISA. :'( P.O.P. Series 2 were also released a few months ago with Usopp w/ Chopper, Sanji, and Nico Robin. Series 3 (Ace, Vivi of Alabasta, and Tashigi) are comin on March.
Here's the site for pics of P.O.P. Series1 (you can find the rest):
Well, to my questions.
1) Depending whether you're a fan of One Piece or not, would you still buy any or all of these figures? Out of coolness, the details, their different style from other animes, etc?
2) Who would you buy first? If you have a fave character in the series but don't like their pose, would you get someone else?
3) How much would you be willing to pay for one/them? Would you buy online via EBay or on other order sites, or buy from the hobbystores themselves? Btw, if any of you know of stores that do carry these (esp. the much coveted Zoro and Luffy), pls tell me of their prices (show if it's US, CDN, or other currency) and location. Thx
wow that's a lot of money for a figure, who has that much cash lying around
Those look pretty cool, but i dont think Id pay for them. Ive gotta make rent every month.
yea they are cool collectible item, but the problem is not everybody is rich enough just to get all those cool stuff XD
maybe I will prefer to pay tuition or use it to eat ^^
i bought op figurines, there are some that doesn't cost much here but they are pretty good.
if i would buy in an extravagant amount i'd say i'd invest on the going merry ship (with the crews of course)
"got any smokes?"
if you ever go to china, verything anime is like 1/5th of the price
In ebay you get them for 46$. even nami, so... sorry you got cheated
are u kidding? have u been to china? it would be 1/20th of that price

Things in China are cheap but the quality is suck.
If I want to buy, I prefer a original one.
