This will be difficult to top. Expensive, too.

The tableau is from a scene when Sanji thanks Zeff, his mentor.

One Piece creator Oda Eiichiro has apparently called 2016 the “Year of Sanji” (neat!), and Yahoo! Japan offered this one-of-a-kind “Life-Sized Sanji Totally Full Charger” as a giveaway.

Websites Kai-You and Eiga.com were on hand to check out the wonderfully silly charger, which took over three months to finish and reportedly cost as much as a nice car to make.
