Bandai recently set off on their ambitious year-long “One Piece Mini-toy ANNIVERSARY YEAR PROJECT” via their Candy Division. The project aims to commemorate the selling of over 10 million mini-toys in the style of “Extreme One Piece Styling (including One Piece Styling)” series. It will also mark the 10 year anniversary of commencing sales of the “One Piece Collection (including One Piece Figure Collection).”
The first set to be up for sale will be the “Extreme One Piece Styling KIMONO STYLE”, which is a 5 figure set bringing together Sanji, Zoro, Chopper and Luffy which will retail for ¥950 each. The second set to be released will be one containing the not to be messed with characters of the East Blue. “One Piece Collection The Course to the Pirate King” will have 11 pieces and one bonus piece which will go for ¥250 each.
As the year progresses more figures and sets will announced prior to their release in this “ANNIVERSARY YEAR”. There is talk already of a third set in the works and more.
The first two sets, “Extreme One Piece Styling KIMONO STYLE” and “One Piece Collection The Course to the Pirate King”, will hit the streets in July.
