These figures are of Zoro (Zolo), Nojiko, and Nami and are made by Megahouse. Megahouse earns the title of being my favorite figure company just because they do such a fabulous job representing the One Piece characters in their Portraits of Pirates line. I was THRILLED when I found out that they would be doing a Kid Version line because what really hooked me into One Piece was the background stories of each character from when they were a kid. These are sold separately and each one cost me $20.00. The is the Second Kid Portraits of Pirates Set.
Nami‘s back story touched me deeper then any other characters’ (ever), she is one of my favorite characters from the series. At first I hated her vain, stealing, and money hording nature, but when how she grew up was told I couldn’t help but cry. Now I find all those negative qualities endearing and entertaining. For some reason I had a bit of a tough time getting her feet on the stand just right. But I think her little sandals and feet are just ADORABLE!? Uh-oh…does Duckie have a fetish for little kids’ feet? That might be a fetish I should keep to myself.
The tangerine she holds makes the figure for me. Although it looks great it’s a pain to get her to hold it just right, during the photos she dropped it everytime I tried to turn her slightly. Although if you don’t touch her it seems to balance well enough in her hand, it just takes a few tries to get her to hold it. I display Nami with her face with her eyes open.
Nojiko is Nami’s adopted (older) sister, and is (of course) a part of the background story of Nami that touched me so deeply. I have to admit I wasn’t that thrilled with kid Nojiko because I would looooooove to have an adult version of her instead! I love her tank top and gorgeous tattoo that goes across her right shoulder and collar bone.
Nojiko and Nami can supposedly be arranged in a way to make it look like they’re holding hands…but because of their bases I can’t get them close enough together to achieve that. I display Nojiko with her hands on her hips and with her open eyes face.
THE MAN, this is a figure of THE MAN…or the soon to be man I should say. I LOVE Zolo (pronounced Zoro). He is also one of my favorite characters even though I don’t find his back story as tragic as the rest, it’s a background that suits him. Zoro’s reasons for getting into swordsmanship are amusing and match his personality, randomly deciding that he will beat the master of a dojo even though he has never touched a sword before.
His angry face with his teeth bared is by far his better face. Gotta love him in his little training outfit! Zoro rarely shows any unsure/embarassed faces as an adult so it was really cute to see he made those kinds of faces as a kid.
