    evenstar88 (2 månader sedan) #49163714Oh yes Bellemere! I love that figure but not so much that I would spend close to 20k yen for her T.T Her price really inflated, like Carue - and I was a new collector so it wasn't very nice. XD


    Yes she is expensive now, so Carue, i never believed in getting her since then :(

    Wario54 (2 månader sedan) #49132935It's always nice to see reviews of the older POPs! I miss pre-timeskip Robin so much, she still looks good but I agree that she looks a lot blander post-timeskip.
    Agreed ;)


    maggie (2 månader sedan) #49137206Yeah I like old Shanks too! As well as Sogeking. Bellemere is an incredible sculpt for sure, I loved her a lot.
    Yes, I’m selling almost all my POPs but I’m keeping my Nami, I just love her, and sogeking too. Considering keeping Shanks but I probably won’t.

    The old Shanks had a more accurate face compared to the newer DX one, but I ended up getting up the DX one because of the imposing size and feel. Hope I will get my hands on the Neo Nami someday. And thanks for the link, it was a good read :)

    I found this article very enlightening, though I can't say I care for the business strategy so much.
    Bellemere is niche and probably not super popular... they re-released smoker and tashigi and I don't think the sales were that great, so Bellemere was out of the question I bet.
    Edit: FYI here's the Banpresto school of thought, I found him very endearing otakumode.com/n...


    Thank you for the link, i quite understand why they didn't, still i was amused by the choice of Smoker and Tashigi and not Bellemere, but i guess the fact she wasn't re-release makes her more valuable and more asked, it wouldn't have been the case if she ended re-release and shelf for years...
    Guess it's better that way, rare are the old POP with a high value i believe, the recent one are expensive on daily basis and the fact that they are sold at japanese shop exclusively then that justified it ? I felt quite disappointed with the line the past few years, however hope is back with the few one they gave us :)

    Tattsuns (2 månader sedan) #49145883Yeah right? I wonder why Bellemere is one of those rare POP that didn't received a renewal or resale treatment, she is very expensive now.

    evenstar88 (2 månader sedan) #49118180Thanks! Yeah, not all of them are great, but I think a few of them are very desirable :)
    I agree. I actually only like three Neo POPs - that is, the Skypiea Robin, Zoro and Nami. I have all but the latter - she's quite pricey and rare nowadays.
    Yes, the shipping prices are especially painful if you are not buying from a local collector. Luckily this one was small so Japan SAL did not break my pocket.
    To each their own, I guess.

This is my final round of selling so now it’s getting to the nitty gritty, the ones I honestly think are good. It was a bit painful selling Neo Robin and Bellemere, but I’m really into the scultures now so I suppose I have to wait for them to choose other characters to sculpt.

    Tattsuns (2 månader sedan) #49015727Good review, i really like the neo line, the first POP line was very imperfect, even if the neo is not the most perfect it held a feeling and style that i appreciate when i look at them!
    Thanks! Yeah, not all of them are great, but I think a few of them are very desirable :)


    maggie (2 månader sedan) #49039117I love the feel of some of the select older POPs and how they look more like the source material instead of abusing the character to make money in an out of context way.
    I agree. I actually only like three Neo POPs - that is, the Skypiea Robin, Zoro and Nami. I have all but the latter - she's quite pricey and rare nowadays.


    Talal (2 månader sedan) #49056334I love figures that comes in small box , it save the cost of shipment . I have seen some 1/8 figures scales with size of 1/4 scale . It takes huge space to store at home and increases the cost of shipment .

    CaptainZ (2 månader sedan) #49010705Never been the biggest fan of the pre-time skip designs. I know a lot of people hate the post-skip since there more sexualized but Nico Robins has always been my weak spot in OP. That said I think for the price you can't do better than what Banpresto has been giving us, again on the condition you don't hate the newer style.
    To each their own, I guess.
