I think we can't rely on the pictures as you mentioned Oda drew also Shirahoshi etc. with the crew so it doesn't mean anything. On the other hand Robin joining was a nice twist and I don't think Oda will repeat that but with Oda you never know. With Jinbei they would be the magic 10 people that Luffy said in the beginning but still they could have more people. Kinemon is still a hot contender in my opinion because I think the Mera Mera No Mi won't be consumed by anyone.
I have really an hard time picturing Jinbei, because of his answer, still.
What he had to do, already ? I forgot when and what did he said about joining the SH. I remember that it was a "yes" but the way it was announced, I'm sure that he will not join for some reasons. I would find that really weird and disapointing that, for one of the most important arcs, the last nakama isn't even there.
Or, yo ho ho ho, twist ! Jinbei comes to save the day at Dressrosa ! Then, that would be pretty cool.
But if we want to go a little bit further, I think Jinbei is a nice guy, but his personnality isn't very original, imo at least. He's the serious guy, mature, with strong experiences. But for the seriousness, I think we already have Robin, even Zoro when necessary.
Wicca, zoro and kinemon are going into the colliseum right? What if wicca gets seperated and feels hungry? And as she is searching for something to eat, she finds the mera mera no mi and eats it? Luffy would want her to join the crew cause she would probably be the first dwarf he had ever seen plus she ate aces fruit by mistake. After she joins the crew, she could be the person always on zoros shoulder and telling him directions. Zoro also kinda likes her cause she has immense strenght though her size is small.

You managed to gather all the good elements : She's a dwarf, she's original, she's a lady, she's strong, she was the first dwarf shown, she makes a good duo with Zoro, and you scenario is highly possible eventually. And would be very funny to see. I love it. She's even kinda of cute, you know. Like a mini-Perona !!!
What I meant was : the last nakama so far, so the next one after Brook, if you know what I mean. Not the last there will ever be.
I apologize for the confusion !
I too think, and whish, that there will be more that 1 nakama who will join.
Anyway, I thought that I could do a list on the original post, regrouping each character that everyone have mentionned. What do you think about that guys ?
well its amazing to me that this list made it this far without mentioning jimbei
he would be an excellent crew member, being perhaps the strongest fishman, a great swimmer and strong fighter
with plenty of connections on land and water
and the ability to communicate with schools of fish/sharks could be beneficial
also his experience on a pirate ship would be very helpful, considering most of the straw-hats are still learning on the fly and lack expert experience
also i would love to see boa join the crew
her love for luffy would be a fun thing to see all the time especially because she would probably act jealous towards nami and robin all the time even though they arent dating luffy
of course the bad news is sanji would always be a stone statue

I can see everyone seems OK with Jinbei. Funny thing !
About Boa Hancock, personnaly I think it would be annoying eventually. Like Bartolomeo for example. The running gag is sweet, but not EVERYTIME, you know. And with two obsessed people like them, I have the feeling that most of us wouldn't be happy with their reactions. (like Sanji in FI with the mermaids, you know ?)
But OMG, just for the fun, it would be so hilarious to see Bartolomeo AND Boa aboard together in front of Luffy. Who will be the most emotive ?? XD
Anyway, guys, I've made the list !
Don't hesitate to tell me if I forgot somebody we evoked.
After all, she kinda took a bath with him, naked... And not a fuck was given this day by Luffy. XD
This man only knows how to love meat and adventure !
I remember when I first read one piece I kinda wanted Kohza to join when I was at the Alabasta arc, and was surprised'ish that he didn't, he just seemed mega cool at the time to me...
Then when it came to Water 7 I kinda thought Paulie might join. He seemed fun and cool too, the debt jokes and SHAMELESS women always got more giggles out of me than Franky.
Nowadays I think Kinemon would make a pretty good addition. But it seems I always like the cool characters who in the end DON'T join the Straw Hats XD
About Jinbei my thought is that Big Mom will capture him after he left her and Luffy will come to save him. Then he'll be in the crew since he had to cut his links with the female Yonkou before entering the SH ! And the next cover story may be on that, Jinbei getting captured.
And for wicca : big +1
