I have noticed that almost all the main characters have a ton of figures by different manufacturers. The common name that keeps coming up for scale figures seem to be Megahouse (do let me know if there are other noteworthy ones in the comments :)).

But when looking at Megahouse, there seems to be so many sub-lines (Portraits of a Pirate, Portraits of a Pirate sailing away, Stronger, etc). I was wondering if the 1/8 scale holds for two figures from these different sublines, or does each line differ from the other?

Portrait of Pirates are probably the best line for One Piece PVC figures so far. There's also the Ichiban Kuji (some of them are also pretty good despite being prize figures) and several other lines by Banpresto and Figuarts Zero (don't know about FZ, but I don't like small-sized figures so I have never purchased one before).

And yes, there are plenty of sub-lines of POPs: The Neo line are the earlier pretimeskip figures; Sailing Again are the posttimeskip figures; MAX are essentially larger-scale POPs (mostly for bigger-sized characters); Sitting On Chair (SOC) feature the male characters sitting on different versions of chairs; Bathing Beauties (BB) feature the females in bathing suits; Strong World and Film Z are movie-based figures.

I would say the scale differs across different lines - for example, the Neo Nico Robin is smaller in scale compared to the Sailing Again Robin, and the Film Z is even smaller than the Neo one (granted, she's supposed to be younger in the movie).

And not all scale proportions are accurate in comparison to the character. I have seen many complaints regarding POP Katakuri not being in proper scale comparison to Luffy despite being a SA-MAX.

Certain characters are in scale in Portrait of Pirates, others are not. Luffy DX, Ace DX, Kizaru, Akainu, Aokiji, Doflamingo, Whitebeard, Kuma, Crocodile, Brook, Franky, Moria, Bonney, Jinbe are not off the top of my head.

ddarko1 år sedan#52419681Thank you! I was referring to the "Maximum", but I just saw the "SA-Maximum" you mentioned. That Zoro from SA Max line looks incredible by the way!!
As long as all the lines match in terms of the 1/8 scale, I would be good since I was hoping to mix and match :)! I guess what you mean by size difference is that the base (or pose) would be much larger?

Ah, I see. I didn't even know there were more Maximums but tbh, I'm not surprised at all. There are so many One Piece figures by Megahouse and lines that it's easy to forget or not know them at all.

What I take from the size difference is literally a difference in size. I would say Zoro is an exception and he's a part of the SA-Maximum line because of his pose, wingspan and the general space he takes up. But ones like Katakuri and Franky are due to their shear size and height. Katakuri's official height is literally 509 cm (16’ 8.4”) and Franky is 240 cm (7’ 10.5”) versus Luffy's regular height at 174 cm (5’ 8.5”). I think the Maximum lines are there to accommodate for the bigger and taller characters and possibly have a higher quality attached to them, which gives them the hefty price tag.

Senbei1 år sedan#52418839If you're referring to the POP SA-MAXIMUM line, there are few characters because it's still a relatively new line, Franky being the earliest entry released in 2015 and only Luffy and Katakuri released afterwards so far. The SA-MAXIMUM line is for characters that are very big and Sailing Again would signify them being after the time skip. I'm not too sure if there is a huge quality difference, but size for sure would be a big factor for the price
There are other lines such as POP SOC, BB versions, and so on.

ddarko1 år sedan#52417329Thank you! :) Yes, that is exactly what I was wondering.
Thanks for the heads up about the earlier releases as well. I noticed they are available for much cheaper now, and looking at photos, some of them do look quiet decent though. But I saw some in the Max line you mentioned and those are certainly at another level of detail!! But they don't seem to have a large number of characters?

Skellington1 år sedan#52400125If I understand correctly you're asking if they are the same scale or look good together. In my opinion they do mesh very well together. Just watch out for the POP Maximum as they're pricier but also a lot more detailed. Oh and be wary of their earlier releases sometimes its not that difficult to see quality differences between the older and newer figures.
Oh and strong & Z editions are movie editions and not canon
