One Piece – Door Painting Collection Monkey D Luffy Animal Ver.
For many he needs no introduction. Monkey D Luffy is the captain of the Straw Hat Pirates from One Piece. Luffy appeared originally for the first time in the One Piece manga’s first chapter and in the One Piece anime series’ first episode. He is on a mission to find the One Piece, a fabled treasure and aim to become the pirate king. A motley crew of unique pirates faithfully supports him.
He ate the Gomu Gomu no mi (Gum-Gum Devil’s fruit) and it gave him the power over rubber. Luffy is so good that he can give both Mr. Fantastic from the Fantastic Four and Elongated Man from the Justice League a run for their money. He is impulsive and so chaotic that his own crew is sometimes in a daze because of his antics. His is also very addicted to meat.

This figurine is based on the 175th chapter of Kaihou’s cover and the theme s Luffy in the wilderness. That is why it is called the Animal Version. With the large curved ram’s horns on his headdress he resembles a ram, and Luffy looks very tribal, in fact with the bow he looks like a warrior in the woods. His accessories like the neck jewellery and beads on his headdress looks Mayan inspired. The base with the greenery is also a nice touch. Luffy’s face part can also be changed and that is a nice bonus.
Overall: A passionate 8.75
Paint Job – 9
Plex always put out on the paint job, excellently done.
Sculpting – 8
So much detail that it blows you away, maybe a little too much?
Design – 10
Sheer out of the box design, it gives Luffy a whole new feel, like there is even more ton what you know about him.
Display Worth – 9
Definitely! It looks super sugoi!
If you are into One Piece this is a must have. The animal version of Luffy is strikingly well made and do justice to the character. It would actually be nice if they can do a few episodes of the anime with Luffy like this, or a spin-off OVA. I want this!
