There are some great looking new Sailor Moon figures on their way from MegaHouse. These super deformed or “chibi” style figures come in a total of 14 designs, showing 8 characters. How does that work? Well the series includes two versions each of Sailor Moon, Mercury, Mars, Jupiter, Venus and Tuxedo Mask as well as lucky items of Luna and Artemis. It may appear that there are duplicate figures but in reality there are simply variations in the winking faces of the various Sailor Guardians and Tuxedo Mask has a variant without his mask. The toys are 6 to 9 cm tall (about 2.4″ to 3.5″) and are set to hit store shelves in Japan this winter. They are 700 yen each, about $7 US, though they are likely to be sold as a set.
These toys are not to be confused with the Sailor Moon key chains which we spoke about earlier. Those toys are much smaller and key chains. They will be released this month and can be pre-ordered from import sites such as JList. The MegaHouse figures are not currently available for pre-order but if we see them for sale anywhere we will post an update.
