Hey guys, while we are all preparing for the preorders of Corazon & Law and Boa Hancock Ver.BB, Megahouse is surprising us with an awesome and unexpected news about another coming Luffy figure and another coming P.O.P line! It's called: Monkey D. Luffy - P.O.P KABUKI Edition... And here is all we know about it!
So this figure is showing up a serious Luffy, with make-up lines on the face and the body and traditional clothing... Simply, this figure is made to celebrate the "One Piece Super Kabuki",
So what is One Piece Super Kabuki and, wait, what is Kabuki as well? For those who don't know this, Kabuki is a classical Japanese dance-drama. Kabuki theater is known for the stylization of its drama and for the elaborate make-up worn by some of its performers.
So One Piece is getting a live action version, but it's about a Kabuki play that will center about the Summit war Arc. Before moving to the figure itself, there is a funny fact about Kabuki theater: there is only male actors, so Ennosuke Ichikawa IV the artist who will play Luffy, will also be Shanks and Boa Hancock too!!! I really want to see this! (Find more about it at Kontaku)
OK, let's get back to the figure, here is the pictures we've got for now, but nothing more, release date, price and distribution method is still unknown. The figure is based on an illustration by Oda-senpai, which looks totally cool and badass! Will we get more KABUKI figures in the future? We still can't answer, so let's just wait and see.
We will update as soon as possible as always. Enjoy and if you have the chance to visit the Shinbashi Enbujō and watch the play that will be held between October 7th and November 25th, let us know your opinion!
Thanks to Ramzi BHS for being the first to spot this news :D
