Bandai took to the Tamashii Nations Twitter account to reveal a number of SH Figuarts figures of One Piece characters, as well as a return of the Chogokin Thousand Sunny. Monkey D. Luffy, Roronoa Zoro, and Sanji will all be back as standard SH Figuarts characters. There will also be a FiguartsZERO of Luffy. No release windows were offered for any of them.
First, here's a look at the Luffy SH Figuarts figure. As with all three of the standard figures of these three One Piece characters, it features a new sculpt.
Next, here's the more elaborate Figuarts Zero Luffy. While SH Figuarts are posable, this is a static one showing him using Red Roc.
Next is the SH Figuarts Zoro figure. It includes an extra Luffy face plate that makes him look just as shocked as Zoro does.
Like the Zoro one, the Sanji SH Figuarts comes with another Luffy expression. In this face plate, it looks like he's drooling over food.
Finally, here's the tweet announcing the return of the Chogokin Thousand Sunny. It originally launched in 2020.
All three of thew new One Piece SH Figuarts figure rereleases, the Luffy FiguartsZERO, and the Chogokin Thousand Sunny rerelease are in the works. The series' manga is being localized by Viz, and you can see the anime on Crunchyroll.
