I see people talking a lot about scale ... but since when did Megahouse had a 1/8 scale in there figures ? I think people just assume that P.O.P and G.E.MS are 1/8, but if you look at their official product website (pbandai, megatrea) they don't ever mention a scale. Just the height in cm. I think megahouse just makes there figures at whatever height they want and often the figures are indeed comparible with 1/8 scale, but that is just because that works for megahouse to produce medium sizeable figures. So that is why Kaido is not 1/8 scale, because P.O.P never has been 1/8, they just work between 15 cm -25 for normal sized characters and the big guys around 30 - 40 cm, I guess like whitebeard. Another example is the new naruto G.E.M which comes out next year, he is 26 cm ! that is way too huge for 1/8. You guys should checkout the megatrea or pbandai websites if you don't believe me.

Looking forward to it thanks!
zephyr7739 päivää sitten#81156837Yeah, I definitely agree that they should have something more uniform in terms of scale, and Kaido could be way bigger for the price. I'm really excited to get him in, and I'll definitely let you know what I think when he arrives!

I saw it on BBTS but I just checked and it sold out. Showing the regular price now. :/ There was another online store in Japan but I can’t remember the name. Google it, you may find it.

TheFreeSoul23 päivää sitten#80516515Unlicensed products shouldn't be supported (it's not as bad as recasts/bootlegs, but still bad), even if they look as good as Black Pearl Studios Kaido - the money just doesn't go to the people who are responsible.
I wish there were more manufacturers like Tsume with the One Piece license.
And well considering the price of this Kaido... people already pay 650€+ (79,500 JPY) in Europe for him, which is a complete mystery for me.
I'm just putting it out here - he looks like a good figure, but he is not in scale and to me non-scale figures always look weird, especially when paired with the other MH 1/8 scale figures.
When you put Kaido (~35cm) and Shanks together (~25cm) it completely annihilates the point of having a Kaido figure, he should be at least 50+cm to make him the monster he is supposed to be.


This has to be one of the most sanest comment ever. No matter how great the sculpt is(rarely happens. about 5% only. they look like Chinese version characters already.) you can't justify buying unlicensed product as it is not supporting the main source of intellect.

TAKE-OUT9 päivää sitten#81156814It’s definitely all about personal preference with collecting. I can completely see why you went that route too. Especially, in terms of the Manga/Anime look. I personally like more textured and realistic aspects added within these sculpts...But that’s only given how I look at Collectible sculpture in general. For me, I also collect for the artist/artistry behind the work and for Bp. Studio, that has surely been the case for me. I just personally feel the price tag that’s on that KAIDO is ludicrous too. Especially for the size. P.O.P.s are getting in a non-scale instead of staying all uniform in 1/8... That is personally really getting to me. If this guy was more in the X-Plus Gigantic Series sizing or 1/4th scale, I think it would be a win at a little over $500! But at that price he exceeds many larger scale figures, heck even Sideshow Premium Format statues which are 1/4th polystone sculptures...It’s just crazy too me. I also noticed, that the price started to go down on certain sites for pre-ordering. I think MegaHouse is realizing this as well. Anyway, thank you for comments to me. I look forward to hearing your final thoughts when you receive the piece! Come find me and let me know, I’m curious how nice this actually turns out. -J

zephyr7739 päivää sitten#81112283I totally understand why people would prefer that resin Kaido over the P.O.P. one for all the reasons stated in this thread. Personally, though, I prefer the look of the P.O.P. one so I went with that. I like the smoothness and the almost more glossy look to it vs the more rigged and realistic veiny/rough look of the muscles on the resin one.
For me it's purely personal preference. I'm also not the type of collector who factors in things like resale value. Ultimately my goal is to build a collection I can enjoy for the rest of my life, so when I spend big money I'm going to pick the thing that appeals most to me. But, that's what so great about having options is that everyone can find what's best for them!

TAKE-OUT17 päivää sitten#80780370If you are going to go the extra mile in pricing like this I'd drop money on this www.youtube.com... IMO. Definitely not really feeling this though. POP's have been hit or miss a lot lately. Definitely turns me more towards Garage Resins...

Precisely the reason why people turn to resins, a 1/4 resin Kaido would be more scaled to the POP line than this one. I see both sides of the coin on the topic of unlicensed resins and as a person who strictly only collected these, MH failed us the consumer. I've given them tons of my money but they stopped making variety of characters that the fans want and slap a limited/exclusive label on every single release for more money so as fans we turn elsewhere that is giving us the statues we want. If they had kept going with the Dressrosa treatment and made every other character I'd never have turned to resins but I simply ran out of things to buy for my love of One Piece.

As far as money going to the people responsible, if you're referring to Oda I doubt he gets that much if any at all for merch. He may be the creator but he works for Shueisha the publisher which "owns" One Piece and Toei which licenses it and they're the ones making all the money. While profiting off pirated copyrights is a bad practice the big licensing companies aren't losing money from stuff they weren't making anyway and the fans get what they want.

My only dilemma is I'm selling my collection so idk what to do with my pre-order to keep it and hope he appreciates in value to resell or cancel cause its already expensive and I'm done collecting? The figures like G4, snakeman, kata, Jimbei have went up but they were a fraction of this price. So if he goes up 700$+ shipping for a scale figure? It's not unheard of but that's asking for a lot.
