Sir Crocodile, leader of Baroque Works and former Lord of the Seas, is being brought to life in an expensive $974 One Piece statue. The limited edition collection is over 2 feet tall and displays Sir Crocodile’s Suna Suna no Mi Devil Fruit, which grants him the power to control sand. Sir Crocodile, who has formed a temporary alliance with the Straw Hats and other former Lords, is part of the popular One Piece manga, which has over 1,000 chapters and is considered the best-selling manga of all time.
The leader of Baroque Works and former Lord of the Seas, Sir Crocodile, is brought to life in a surprisingly expensive One Piece statue.
Available for pre-order on Sideshow for $974, the Desert King’s limited-edition collection is over 2 feet tall and directly related to his Suna Suna no Mi Devil Fruit, a loggia that gives the powerful pirate the ability to transform into and manipulate sand. The item is expected to begin shipping in July 2024 and is limited to one figure per person.
Many fans have also brought Sir Crocodile to life as the fan-favorite character serves as a general inspiration for cosplay. Notably, costume master Akira shared their footage of the Desert King, with the former Lord leaning against a tree with a golden hook on his knee, deep in thought. Furthermore, a One Piece fan on Reddit posted a photo of their gender-swapped Sir Crocodile cosplay which they labeled “Crocodile aka Luffy’s mother.” The title refers to the prominent fan theory that the evil pirate is the biological parent of the story’s meat- and battle-obsessed protagonist, Monkey D. Luffy.
Sir Crocodile forms a temporary alliance with the Straw Hat Pirates
Introduced as the main antagonist in the Arabasta Saga, Sir Crocodile eventually allied himself with Luffy in “Impel Down” and “Marineford”, going on to play an important role in saving the future Pirate King’s life in the sequel. More recently, Sir Crocodile has teamed up with former Lords, Dracule Mihawk and Buggy the Clown, to create a new criminal organization called the Cross Guild.
First appearing in Shueisha’s Weekly Shōnen Jump in 1997, Eiichiro Oda’s One Piece manga consists of over 1,000 individual chapters and is the best-selling manga of all time, with over 516 million copies in circulation worldwide. The story follows Luffy and his colorful band of pirates as they sail across the Grand Line in search of hidden treasure.
Oda has confirmed that One Piece has entered its final story with the beginning of the “Egghead” part. As a result, many fans have begun speculating about the answer to the remaining mysteries of the story, and notable characters such as Marshal D. Teach (aka Blackbeard) and Imu, who currently occupies the Empty Throne, have become the focus of a number of recent theories.
The One Piece manga is distributed in North America by VIZ Media, and the anime adaptation of Toei Animation’s Oda work is available on Crunchyroll, Netflix, and Hulu.
