[REPORT] 10 One Piece Characters That Should Get POP'd!

No one can deny that the P.O.P collection is one of the most amazing One Piece figures collections ever! All the figures are top notch and have high quality and details. Megahouse are making them all great, and we're really satisfied with the releases, unfortunately the PVC giant is not listening to his fans and skip some characters that are really, really a must to complete our collections! Here is the top 10 characters that we believe they need to get a P.O.P someday...

#10 Wiper (ワイパー)

The leader of the Shandia warriors, a main Skypiea arc character that fought for his own people against Enel. He also had epic battle against Luffy, Zoro and Sanji.

Reasons to want him: Wiper is a badass full of muscles, he's got his unique style; the tribal tattoos, his cool stuff like the bazooka and the skate-type wavers. It's a good character and have a lot of potential that can be exploited in a P.O.P figure!

#09 Daz Bones (ダズ・ボーネス)

Daz Bones is a former bounty hunter who joined Baroque Works and was the highest ranked male Officer Agent and the strongest under Crocodile himself. His code-name was Mr. 1 and his partner was Miss Doublefinger.

Reasons to want him: The second most powerful Baroque Works agent after Crocodile, a very charismatic character with big sculpted body. It's a pleasure to get another Baroque Works agent to put next to Crocodile and Bentham!

#08 Ryuma (リューマ)

Ryuma - Figuarts ZERO (Bandai)

Ryuma was a samurai from the Wano Country in the New World who died and was made into a General Zombie by Hogback. He is the same Ryuma from Oda's previous one-shot manga, Monsters. His corpse previously possessed Brook's shadow to animate him during the Thriller Bark Arc.

Reasons to want him: Ryuma is one of the first characters created by Oda (at least his human form), his Samurai style is looking so nice and cool. Also, Ryuma was a main antagonist in the Thriller Bark arc, he made epic battles against Zoro and Brook. And finally, he gave the Shusui sword to Zoro after being defeated by him.

#07 Hatchan (はっちゃん)

Hatchan - Characollecan vol 2 (Bandai)

Hatchan, is an octopus fishman, a former officer of the Arlong Pirates, and a member of the Sun Pirates before that. After the rest of the Arlong Pirates were arrested, Hatchan was the sole escapee, and underwent many adventures which ended in him opening a floating takoyaki restaurant and meeting up again with the Straw Hat Pirates. Along with Keimi, he is one of the main supporting characters in both the Sabaody Archipelago and Fishman Island Arcs.

Reasons to want him: More fishmen! Hatchan appeared in three different arcs: Arlong Park, Saobody Archipelago and the Fishman Island. His multitude of tentacles is a positive point to want him, We can't stop hoping for a Six sword figure of him.

#06 Jozu (はっちゃん)

"Diamond" Jozu is the 3rd division commander of the Whitebeard Pirates. He is big, very muscular, broad-chested, heavily-armored and dark-skinned man. During the Marineford war, Jozu was powerful enough to fight on par against the Shichibukai and Marine admirals

Reasons to want him: He's the 3rd division commander of the Whitebeard Pirates, isn't this enough? Yes! Definitely a must!

#05 Magellan (はっちゃん)

Magellan is the vice warden of Impel Down. He was formerly the chief warden, but after his failure to stop the jail's one and only mass-breakout, he was replaced by Hannyabal and demoted to vice warden. He was the main antagonist during the Impel Down Arc.

Reasons to want him: This is the perfect next MAX figure! His giant body and his Doku Doku no Mi fruit power make us imagine a very huge figure with the Hydra attack. Also, we only got Sadi-Chan for the Impel Down arc. Is it because she's sexy and can make good sales? Believe me guys, Megallan can do better!

#04 Emporio Ivankov (エンポリオ・イワンコフ)

Emporio Ivankov, or Iva for short, is the "Queen" of the Kamabakka Kingdom, known as "Okama King" and a "Miracle Person", and is a commander of the Revolutionary Army. He was formerly a prisoner of Impel Down kept in Level 5, living in a secret "Okama Paradise" in level 5.5, but has since returned to his post as Queen of Kamabakka Kingdom. He challenged Sanji to defeat his 99 masters of Newkama Kenpo for the secret of the "attack cuisine" and a boat, during the two year timeskip.

Reasons to want him: His special style is unique, he saved Luffy and helped him to leave Impel Down. Also, Ivankov is the mentor of Sanji during the time skip and have been one of the main characters during the Marineford arc.

#03 Caesar Clown (シーザー・クラウン)

Caesar Clown, is a former colleague of Vegapunk and the primary antagonist of the Punk Hazard Arc. Caesar is the leading expert on chemical weapons of mass destruction and is a demented scientist that has a bounty of B300,000,000 on his head. During the Dressrosa Arc, Donquixote Doflamingo declared Caesar to be his direct subordinate, meaning Caesar is an official member of the Donquixote Pirates.

Reasons to want him: The epic gaseous look due to his Devil Fruit ability will make a special statue of him, maybe a MAS or even a MAX P.O.P! He's a subordinate of Doflamingo, but he used to be a main antagonist during the Punk Hazard arc. This arc haven't got the needed interest from Megahouse, we only got Law from there and we really need more love for this arc.

#02 Kin'emon (錦えもん)

Foxfire Kin'emon is a Samurai from Wano Country whom the Straw Hat Pirates found in various pieces at Punk Hazard. He is the father of Momonosuke. Kin'emon's appearance matches the stereotype of all samurai found in ancient Japan, with a black topknot, and goatee. He is quite tall, about the same height as Brook.

Reasons to want him: He's so funny, lovely and colorful! He's in the company of the Mugiwaras since the time they found him. Kinemon is a super styled samurai with two blades and a very special samurai gi. Megahouse have already released the figure of his son Momonosuke, so why not the pervert and proud samurai father?

#01 Buggy (バギー)

Buggy the Star Clown is the captain of the Buggy Pirates as well as the co-leader of the Buggy and Alvida Alliance, and a former apprentice of the Roger Pirates. He is the first antagonist in the series to fight Monkey D. Luffy, but allied with him to break free from Impel Down. Shortly after the Battle of Marineford, he became a member of the Shichibukai and the leader of the "Pirate Dispatch Organization". He is the main antagonist of the Orange Town Arc and can be considered the secondary antagonist of the Loguetown Arc. He has since become a highly recurring character in the series.

Reasons to want him: Do we really need more reasons to get him? Antagonist, protagonist, antagonist, protagonist... Buggy is the first enemy of Luffy, and they meet more than once. He's the most desirable character after the Mugiwaras. More than this, Buggy is looking super cool and funny with the Clown makeup and his (Sorry Buggy) BIG RED NOSE! Despite he's a simple looking character, Megahouse haven't revealed any prototype of him, time is up guys! We really want him more than a Lao G or another Nami... GIVE US THE CLOWN PLEASE!!!
