Here’s a fun surprise, but it looks like One Piece is getting some brand-new merchandise. We already got a tease during Anime Expo; a big sign that Netflix is all-in with this new project. While most of us may have thought they were planning to slowly roll out a few products as they test the waters, it looks like they aren’t holding back after all.
Hot Toys shared a tweet confirming that they are working on collectibles of the iconic series but based on Netflix’s live-action adaptation. Sadly, they have yet to share anything on what characters will get the Hot Toys treatment and if these are similar to their iconic Marvel Cinematic Universe line-up, but it’s definitely a great surprise.
The timing of the tweet is also quite interesting, as One Piece Day is this weekend. They are having an in-person event in Japan, and it wouldn’t be too surprising if they actually reveal it over the weekend. They will have some props at the location, but there was no word if they will also include merchandise. Seems like we’ll have to wait until tomorrow to find out.
