MegaHouse’s Portrait of Pirates Sa-Maximum series has launched a new figure of Monkey D. Luffy Gear 4 “Boundman” in an updated version, which is selected from the powerful posture of fighting against Doflamingo in One Piece manga, and the visual impact is very good. Let’s take a look!
This Monkey D. Luffy figure adopts a 1/8 scale, and the overall height has reached 10.63 inches, approx. 27 cm.
As the figure’s size is really quite huge, the overall character’s aura has become very powerful.
The picture above is a figure of Monkey D. Luffy Gear Four “Boundman” once launched by MegaHouse in 2017. Compared with the new figure, its design is more static. It mainly shows the pose that Luffy had just turned in his Gear 4 “Boundman” form.
And the design of this new figure is very dynamic! In the Gear 4 “Boundman” form, Monkey D. Luffy hits a very powerful and heavy attack with his left hand. With a roaring expression and a forward-leaning posture, it is much more domineering than the Ver.1 version.
The whole body of Monkey D. Luffy is supported by smoke special effects, showing the posture of leaping high in the air and preparing to punch. There is a bursting effect around the left arm, which highlights the great power of this palm.
The whole base is made up of smoke special effects, which cleverly connects the main body to the base through smoke, avoiding the use of brackets.
In addition, the fluttering shape of the steam around Luffy’s body is exactly the opposite of the direction of rushing. This design enhances the speed and dynamics of punching.
Luffy’s inflated upper body and small thin legs form a perfect inverted triangle shape, and there is a touch of cuteness in the domineering.
After Luffy’s transformation, the depiction of the upper body muscles is also very delicate. Especially the muscle lines also are treated of shadow coating, the character image has been greatly improved.
Luffy’s arm is not only very clearly portrayed in muscles, but also painted like a hot red soldering iron. Visually it has both a sense of hardness and full of power, vividly showing the image of armament Haki that has hardened Luffy’s huge hands into weapons.
At the same time, the shape of the fist of the right hand is very powerful, and the steam smoke wrapped around the arm is also very delicate and natural.
Of course, this Luffy’s head sculpt is also a highlight, which portrays Luffy’s facial expressions very delicately.
Luffy’s angry eyes, the big mouth that opened when he exerted his force, the bulging veins on his forehead, and the towering hair. Every detail has fully recreated the original character’s setting in One Piece manga.
The extremely angry head sculpt is paired with the huge arms that are entangled in the Armament Haki, making this close-up of Luffy as scary as a ghost! The tension of the picture is very strong.
Although this figure is 1/8 scale, the sheer size of the Gear 4 Luffy is acturally much larger than most figures of the same scale. This could easily be the top-level figure in the P.O.P series so far, so make sure to add it to your collection!
