ZOOM! Tony Tony Chopper MAS

Tony Tony Chopper - P.O.P MAS, the second MAS figure is ready to get a review! Another Chopper figure, but this time it's different; it's not a Chopperman nor an ordinary repaint version, but a new form of the cute animal! It's the Horn Point for this time. We think it's a good figure, know more about this piece...

After releasing a cute Kung Fu Point, here is a second special one; the "improved" (because it's not the first form) Horn Point which is closer to a human body. So in order to perfectly describe the figure, we should pass by a description of the original Horn Point.

Horn Point is a form similar to Walk point, but with larger and sharper antlers. In this form, Chopper's human arms are retained and also become bulkier (and covered in fur) in order to compensate with the large load upon his head. With these huge antlers, Chopper can use them for a variety of ways, such as using them as a large shovel. Chopper first uses Horn Point against Mr. 4 and Miss Merry Christmas, labeling it his "most powerful form".

After two years, the appearance of Chopper's Horn Point has evolved and changed drastically. He can now stand on two legs in this form and the shape and size of his horns have changed and grown greatly, though less sharp becoming much thicker resembling that of a stag beetle. His forearms are large (similar to Franky's pre-timeskip) and he now has hooves instead of hands. Furthermore his legs and feet have a humanoid structure though they are still hooved. Choppers face is close to that of his Brain Point and he also has a hairier back. He has become taller as well and is now skilled with digging to the extent that he is comparable to Daruma of the New Fishman Pirates. It is unknown if he can still transform into his old Horn Point form.

OK, now the full description of this form is done, let's talk about the figure. The details are good as excepted, the most attractive details are those of the fur, especially on the back. The horns are looking so realistic, there is a nice texture on them that gives a different look and really make it stand so well. The hooves on both of the hands and legs look great too, thanks to a perfect paint job. All the paints on this figure are very well done, even the colors are correctly chosen, it's not an easy thing when you have to create many derived tones to make visible and nice gradients from the same basic color. Finally, the pose is dynamic and badass, I guess all the MAS figures will be, since it's about Motion Ability Statues.
