Once upon a time, way back in the 80’s, I remember standing in line at a supermarket and perusing one of those magazines stores like to keep handy at the checkout. In there was an interview with Lou Ferrigno. Nothing particularly noteworthy, except there was a shot of the actor holding what I though was the most amazing Hulk Action Figure I had ever seen ...

Here's just a quick post to share this photo I found amusing. For 30+ years I have been a HUGE Fan of the Canadian Rock Band, RUSH. The other night I was watching a Documentary Movie about the Band called, "RUSH - Beyond The Lighted Stage". It covered their entire career, the ups and downs, all the way from the beginning. The cool thing is that they interview the band members all through out the film. This photo is from when they were talking to Lead Singer/ Bassist Getty Lee ( pictured on the left ). Check out his BATMAN AND ROBIN T-Shirt, ha ha! I thought that was pretty cool. If you'd like to see the movie ( it's really good ) then just CLICK HERE!
If there's one thing that MegaHouse knows how to make, it's the Portrait of Pirates line. Over at MegaHobby Expo, they've unleashed several new sculpts that we can desperately attempt to pre-order some time in 2013. I can already tell that a couple of these bad boys and girls are going to be a nightmare to get.
I have a lot to say on the sculpts and characters that MegaHouse chose to show, so hit the jump to read more about the latest P.O.Ps.
For this year's figures, we've got a good balance between the sexy ladies and the manly men. Starting with the dudes, we FINALLY have a P.O.P. of Gol D. Rodger. When you considering that the entire series has hinged on his past adventures, I'm surprised it's taken this long to get a figure of him. With that said, it's been worth the wait. He looks fantastic!
Speaking of older pirates, Shiki the Golden Lion, from the film Strong World is also getting a proper P.O.P. He looks like he'll have a custom base, as he has a pair of sword legs. I wonder how they'll balance that. Hopefully it'll me more like Shirahoshi's custom base and less like Bonney's. Another old hat that gets a new figure is Red-Haired Shanks. This version will have his outfit from the aftermath of the Whitebeard War. He'll be holding his hat, retrieved when he found Luffy completely incapacitated. As nice as it is, it's pretty staid and a bit boring for my taste. At least Shanks' Strong World outfit had him in a new suit.
Another bit surprise was that Sailing Again Franky finally made a colored appearance at MegaHobby. After months of being an unpainted sculpt, we finally know what he'll look like when he goes up for pre-order. The bad news? He's been classified as a P.O.P. MAXIMUM. This means he'll be pushing about $150 for the figure alone, not including the massive shipping that he'll probably incur. As of now we don't have photos of Franky, but we'll update the post when we do. Finally, Trafalger Law is also getting a Sailing Again P.O.P. Unfortunately, it's as boring as his original release. Damn shame, as he's been involved in some pretty interesting turns in the lastest manga arc.
As for the ladies, we've got a couple of gals that will make fanboys drool. First up is Sadi-chan, one of the strange wardens from Impel Down. As you can guess from her name, she has a bit of an S&M theme going on with her outfit. She's definitely right down my alley, but I'm not sure if I'll be able to get her. It seems that she's going to be a limited edition P.O.P, which means she's either going to be a mail-order or online exclusive. Now, you might remember that the wedding gown version of Boa Hancock was an exclusive, but she was available at several reliable sites. Hopefully, Sadi will go the same way.
Besides Sadi, we have Kalifa. If you forgot about the sexy secretary, you might remember her from way back in the Water 7 arc. I'm also really digging Kalifa, though I am concerned about her pose. It's very dynamic and sexy, but I always worry about lean with any figure that's on one foot. Only one of my P.O.Ps have ever shown a tendency to lean, so I probably have nothing to worry about.
Finally, we've got a pair of surprises. Much like what MegaHouse did with Strong World, a series of P.O.Ps featuring the Strawhats in their Film Z outfits will be coming out, starting with Tony Tony Chopper and Nico Robin. Chopper was shown already colored and he's cute as usual. The bigger news as the new Robin. Wowzas, now THAT'S one helluva outfit. It looks like some heels, fishnet leggings, boy shorts, a bra, an open jacket and a hat. I...will definitely be purchasing this Robin.
So with all the new P.O.P.s discussed, let me know in the comments which ones you're looking forward to getting!
