One Piece’s Jinbe Calls the Sea in New Figure
The “Knight of the Sea” owns up to his title in a new figure from MegaHouse’s Portrait of Pirates (P.O.P) line. The 1/8-scale figure shows the whale shark fishman and Sun Pirates captain in a battle pose, seeming to beckon his foe to make a move.
Underneath his foot, water crashes upward as if he just stomped down in a puddle. His cape billows behind him like it is caught in a rough breeze. The entire piece creates the image of a fight about to go down during a maelstrom.
Pre-orders open on November 2 for 19,980 yen (US$175). Orders are expected to ship in March.
MegaHouse’s Portrait of Pirate line is dedicated to recreating the colorful cast from One Piece. Previous figures include Luffy in his Gear 4 form, its continuing sub-line of swimsuit figures, and gender-swapped versions of Trafalgar Law and Luffy.
