The New Portrait Of Pirates SectionThe New Portrait Of Pirates Section

POST IMAGE HEAVY!!!

Hi MFC!

Well me hearties it's time for an update on the One Piece Portrait Of Pirates section as I promised!

Well just to put you in the picture (before we look at the process and almost finished section) I've been buying a lot of MegaHouse POP figures for a while now and decided to start a whole section dedicated to them well here's what it used to look like:

More info on the old section in this blog here: blog/32117&...

My first idea was to have ships decking as a full background and with the help of my good crew mate and friend Blaize he found me the perfect one to go for this section but after having a conversation with him I decided that the ships decking on the wall would look bland, we came up with ideas of what could be added to it to make it more exciting but it just wasn't working in my mind and then we agreed that the figure should be standing on it, well enter my friend (and cabinet builder) Trevor who said he would use the decking to cover my shelves hence making it look like the figures are standing on a ship!
Well off to the printers I went and got the decking printed which
this cost me with some OP transparent logos's £45.00 so yeah not cheap! The decking was A1 size and the logos A4.

The shelves were removed and I was left with this:

Anyway after another long convo with Blaize I settled on having OP backgrounds from the show for the figures and the idea began to take shape! It was back to the printers to print those backgrounds which cost a smaller sum of £30.00 but they were all A3 so that was understandable! As you may have read previously I wanted a sea background but wasn't sure if I would find the right one, well luckily I did and yes it is from OP too! So that's a bonus! Well with almost all the pieces I wanted we set to work.....

My shelves came back and man does that decking look cool! First of putting them back up which was quite tricky but my good friend George was able put them back exactly how I had them before:

Then it was placing the backgrounds, the top a Marine section! This will (when I get them!) have all the Marines, Kizaru, Akainu, Sengoku, Aokiji, Fujitora, Garp, Smoker and possibly Tashigi will move to the end from my middle shelf.

Middle shelf section! This will be for the POP ladies!

Bottom shelf for the Straw Hat crew!

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/RockGodItachi1489530575.jpeg

This took some time to place all the BG'S with them straight and matching the height of each shelve, here's all of them together!

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/RockGodItachi1489530628.jpeg

Right onto the sea, I actually mirrored the image on the sea to create a wallpaper which looks really good!

http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/RockGodItachi1489530708.jpeg

Now I was stuck what to do with those transparent logo's, I was thinking of cutting them dowm and placing them on a few BG'S but it felt like they were too out of place, then it hit me! Why not put them around the sky /sea area!? Well that worked really well and looks awesome too!
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/RockGodItachi1489530729.jpeg
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/RockGodItachi1489530752.jpeg

Well believe it or not this took me and George just over 4 hours to do all this, as there was a lot of cutting involved and we had to get it just right!

I took a breather then went back to adding the figures, with some dusting too I might add! XD

Man I love the Straw Hat section! Still shocked I have all these and man do they look bad ass!

Next up the ladies!

Not entirely finihed with this section yet, still need to get Vivi, Bellmere and Koala. I have ordered Bonney, so she should be here soon. As for Bellmere that's an expensive get as she is currently floating around the price of 24-26,000 jpy!

I added the ships and then had an idea, I wanted to re-use my wanted posters so I thought it would be cool to have them on the side of my computer cabinet:
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/RockGodItachi1489531585.jpeg


Well I do have some other POP'S and they will be going on another shelf above my window and eventually a lot more will be on top of my computer cabinet, so yeah this section will expand!

Here is the almost finished section!
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/RockGodItachi1489531727.jpeg

Why do I say "almost finished" well I hate the wallpaper I have the ships are on, it's old and torn and sadly so far I can't find anything to replace it, I will keep looking though as I want it to be a proper sea effect for the ships.

Well that's is ship mates! I will let you know and post pics of any changes to this part or any new additions that I decide to add!

Thanks for reading! :D

I've seen your PoP section before and I LOVE how you went all out with the redesign. The dedication that went into printing all of the decking, the logos and the backgrounds...! The backgrounds are my favourite part about this entire project, since I love One Piece's immersive world so much, and the series' worldbuilding is one of its strongest points. Did you take the screenshots to be printed yourself or did you use something like the Wiki?

All of your friends who helped make this happen are amazing too!! Sounds like you all had a lot of fun together. :D

I love this to bits. Good to see devoted P.O.P. collectors out there. (I still need to get my hands on Kalifa's... orz)

OmegaWerrier (Il y a 1 an) #18983554Great set up ^^

Thank you! :D

SengokuGensui (Il y a 1 an) #18983583Very nice! Lots of dedication is shown here! Beautiful! :D

Thanks! Yep I do love One Piece and like I said this section will expand! lol

ChocolateSpider (Il y a 1 an) #18983682I tip my tiny spider hat to you, good sir. :3

Thank you! :D

Azukay (Il y a 1 an) #18984796Wow! This is amazing!

Thanks! ^^

rubyserpent_720 (Il y a 1 an) #18987646Fantastic job! I especially like the "wooden boards" look on your shelves. Is it a print out?
one slight thing that irks me about the POP line is their colourful bases which distracts from the figures. Some of them are stable enough to stand on their own but not others (especially the ladies with heels)


Thank you! They're a printout of these on A1 paper:
http://s1.tsuki-board.net/image/600/RockGodItachi1489664338.jpeg
I printed out initially 6 which luckily covered all the shelves. :)
I don't mind the bases too much but I will say that I would prefer it if I could make it look like they are actually standing on the decking rather than the bases but as you mentioned the just aren't stable, Franky being one of the worst as he is a very top heavy figure.


Stalgonoff (Il y a 1 an) #18989279Your POP collection looks amazing. I'm not particularly a fan of the aesthetic style that OP uses, but with everything together it does look spectacular. I really like the wanted posters so I'm glad you decided to stick with them.

Thank you! More to get yet though! ;) Have you watched it? It'a superb series! :D It does look pretty awesome, just need to get a proper sea for the ships. I was wondering what to do with them, was on the verge of throwing them away, glad I didn't!

Halcione (Il y a 1 an) #19001019It all looks quite good with those backgrounds added in, good job :D

Thanks! The backgrounds close up are actually quite blurry but from a distance you wouldn't notice it, I was considering having them A2 size but soon realized that would be too big! lol

MugiwaraPirates (Il y a 1 an) #19007887Wow! That's really awesome how you did that! The backgrounds blend in so well with the figures/ships! I still need to complete my POP line but every time I plan on buying one there's something else that comes first :p. I guess there are just too many figures I cannot resist on buying XD.

Thanks! :D Yeah I'm glad (with the help of Blaize) I settled on the BG idea as a whole wall of ships decking would have looked as I said boring and stale so the BG'S idea has worked a lot better than I anticipated! Buy more POP'S! XD I know the feeling, I'm going to try my hardest to concentrate on this section, I can't wait to get the marines but damn those prices......

MugenTenshinFRD (Il y a 1 an) #19007923I was going to say something similar. haha
It really changed a lot, the atmosphere is totally different and unique now. It gives an even more authentic anime feel.
@MugiwarePirates: Yeah, you still need quite some figures to complete your POP (Sailing Again) collection.


Yeah it has, plus leaving the blue wallpaper BG has help the backgrounds stand out a lot more, so glad I didn't try and join them up which was my initial idea at first. I think we all still need more POP figures! XD
