    As one of the 15th anniversary items for its "Portrait.Of.Pirates One Piece" figure line, MegaHouse has listed a 110mm-tall pre-painted figure of Tony Tony Chopper newly designed by Ryo Taniguchi, who is best known as the designer of the two mascot characters for the upcoming 2020 Summer Olympic and Paralympic Games to be held in Tokyo, Miraitowa and Someity. Taniguchi, now 44, has been a big fan of the manga since he was in third grade at elementary school and is still reading it every week.

    The item is inspired by Taniguchi's illustration of Chopper sitting on a pancake and wearing a hat with his favorite sweets, macarons and cream. Its price is 5,756 yen (about 53 US dollars), and its scheduled shipping date is late May of 2019. Pre-orders will be received exclusively on MegaHouse's MegaTrea Shop, Premium Bandai, Jump Characters Store, Toei Animation Online Store, and Mugiwara Store from 13:00 on January 11 (JST).

    If he's 44 now, how old was he in third grade elementary school? Maybe he went to the school when he was in his twenties. Because it doesn't add up.

    Isn't Oda the same age? :lmao: elementary school must be wrong because age is not. Just looked at another article from last year where he was 43. It should be university or something because Oda started to draw One Piece in his early twenties.

    ... Chopper... I understand that they want to appeal men with OP and women with "Kawai Kawai CHOPPER!" but...

    ... I can't stand Mr. "Kawaii-Braindead"...

    Where is my Maverick? Combat cheap tricks with cheap weapons! (Jokes aside, I appreciate the detail and hard work but I don't want it considering I don't like Tanuki.

    On the one hand i can totally understand why many many people (especially the female audience) loves it. It looks like a cute pet-figure.

    On the other hand - thinking about the character Tony Tony Chopper (especially pre-timeskip) - I'm a bit sad.
    It's like the merchandising-squad and Oda as a consequence, too (since it was selling well) stole every bit of manhood that Chopper ever had.

    They stole his personality kinda, you are right. Nowadays it feels like he is just there for the kawaii and merchandising factor. bruh.
