Well, this is pretty cool. At Times Square in Hong Kong, there's currently a big One Piece event underway, complete with a life-sized version of the One Piece ship, the Thousand Sunny...that you can board!

At the event, called "One Piece Docks in Hong Kong," there are also life-size statues of One Piece characters, and a huge straw hat covering the Times Square clock.

Inside the shopping complex, there is also a life-sized version of the previous One Piece ship, the Going Merry, hanging from the ceiling. You cannot board this boat, so just gaze up in awe.

I'm not sure if either boat is to exact scale (the scale looks slightly smaller), but still, they're darn big. The mast is around 36 feet high.
