Hi there, Shizu Mecha here.

One Piece is all about the colorful cast of characters.

Cool dudes here to save the day!

Lovely ladies!

Cute and comical kids and critters!

And villains with more personality in their fingernail crud than some heroes have in their entire body!

The MegaHouse P.O.P line has brought countless unforgettable characters to life and this time they're throwing a curve ball. Hope you like 'em big and brooding...

...because today we're reporting to Marine Headquarters admiral Fujitora "Issho!"

Sit back and see him bring his own taciturn breed of honor and humility to the P.O.P line-up.

Straight out of the Dressrosa Arc alongside Aokiji, Kizaru, Akainu and Ryokugyu, Issho is finally making his P.O.P. debut!

He's heavier than he looks... which is saying a lot!

P.O.P. has given us some brawny men in the past such as Jinbei and Whitebeard that land on your figure shelf with a satisfying "THUD!" Issho continues the trend. While he may not be as flamboyantly dressed as the others, his calm demeanor bleeds style.

And that expression... so gangster!

The sculptor gave his facial scar, nose, mouth and brow the love and attention they deserve.

When dealing with men of a dignified vintage it's hard to capture the right balance of manga-esque deformation and real-world proportions, but this model pulls it off with aplomb.

Issho is a conservative dresser in the One Piece universe. (Compare him to Doflamingo!) But he still manages to carve out his own style with his trademark wisteria-colored kimono, wooden geta and classy Admiral's jacket. His whole ensemble is painted with lavish shadows to match the detailed sculpt.

His shikomizue cane sword isn't just for show--swap in this alternate part and show off the glint of his blade!

Issho talks softly and carries a big stick. If you see that flash of steel, then the fight's already over! (For the enemy, anyway...)

It's a subtle difference but changing out the parts adds a sense of action and explosive danger to the figure. You 'gotta try it yourself!

"In this world... There are many horrible things that you do not want to see."

"Before counting the enemy...

Shouldn't we first count those who need protecting?"

Despite his position as an Admiral he values human life above all else and treats Luffy's pirate crew with honor. This man still holds many secrets in his massive frame. If your collection is in need of protection, add this heavy to your shelf!
