Bandai America ONE PIECE Action Figures

bandai america

Ahoy mateys! Bandai America has created a new lineup of action figures that will allow you to imagine pirate adventures inspired by the popular ONE PIECE anime television episodes and manga comics. Cisco Maldonado, Senior Director of Brand Strategy at Bandai America, devoted some time from his busy schedule for a one on one interview with a Geek Daddy to share some highlights about this new addition to the company's Anime Heroes toy collection.

The story of One Piece is an epic adventure about treasure hunting pirate, Monkey D. Luffy, who is on a quest to become the King of the Pirates. Luffy and his friends journey through the treacherous waters of the Grand Line and beyond in search for the legendary treasure, One Piece, that once belonged to Pirate King Gol D. Roger. Before Gol D. Roger’s death, he revealed to everyone that his treasure, the One Piece, was hidden at the end of the Grand Line. This inspired people to become pirates themselves and sail toward the treasure, beginning what has become known as the Great Age of Pirates. 

Bandai America's 6.5-inch scale ONE PIECE action figures are a great way for people to engage in imaginative play recreating their favorite moments from the anime show that can be seen on Netflix or the pages of the manga series written and illustrated by Eiichiro Oda. Each of these Anime Heroes action figures feature over 16 points of articulation providing a multitude of posing possibilities making them wonderful for both playing and displaying. Every figure also includes two sets of switchable hands and character-specific accessories. 

Bandai America ONE PIECE action figures will be hitting Target store shelves by mid-April and Walmart's toy aisle in June. They are also available online via amazon.com. Other toy retailers are also expected to begin selling the Anime Heroes ONE PIECE action figures in 2021 so keep an eye out for them at your favorite stores. Fans of the tv series and comics as well as those who appreciate cool looking action figures are sure to be geeked about these new toys.

Sanji (also known as Black Leg), is the Straw Hat pirates chef as well as their third strongest fighter. It is his dream is to find the rumored chef's paradise, the All Blue, which is where the waters of East Blue, West Blue, North Blue, and South Blue meet, along with their wildlife. 

Which action figure is your favorite? Mine is Zoro. You know a great pirate has to be able to be a master of the cutlass! That being said all three (Luffy, Sanji and Zoro) get a Geek Daddy nod of approval for these toys replicating the anime characters' in such detail it seems as if they've jumped off television screens or out of comic book pages when holding these action figures in your hand.
