GFF is under way, and I’m really excited because I’m introducing a figure I’ve been looking forward to a really long time.
Princess Shirahoshi Excellent Model Portrait.of.Pirates Figure
This Princess Shirahoshi figure does justice to the beautiful mermaid. The thing I love the most about the figure is all the attention paid to detail. Each scale stands out by itself and gives the long multicolored tail some realism. The balance between vivid color and transparent looking parts mix perfectly. It’s a definite must have for any One Piece fan.
To remain true to the manga, Luffy should be smaller, but since I believe it’s mostly an artistic choice than a mistake it can easily be forgiven. My only real complain in the crack that can be seen behind her, right where the flowers and the coral reside on the rock, it’s distracting.

Anime Chara Heroes One Piece D.P.C.F. Volume 1
This is the first out of what promises to be a new line of those lovable random assortment figurines. They stand 57 mm tall and have the heroes in cowboy getup and an assortment of villains in their normal costumes. There are 16 figures to collect, with a mystery figure known to be out there.

Avengers Head Knockers
More commonly referred to as bobble heads, but these are not your dad’s regular bobble heads (unless your dad is really cool). These are Avenger bobble heads worthy of displaying with dignity.
These figures stand alone without the need of a pole, and their base is the Avenger’s symbol. Sadly no Black Widow but there are all the most important heroes whose movies you’ve seen before.
