Sailor Jupiter Pullip doll announced

Sailor Jupiter Pullip Doll

The Sailor Jupiter Pullip doll has been revealed on the Sailor Moon official site. The doll follows Sailor Moon, Mercury, Mars, Venus and Princess Serenity which have already been released. Why do we keep getting Sailor Venus products before Sailor Jupiter products despite Sailor Jupiter being the first to appear in the manga and anime? Not sure. Maybe it has something to do with Sailor V or character popularity.

Pullip dolls are high quality oddly proportioned dolls with large heads and eyes. This one will retail for 16,000 yen, about $135 US. It’s expected to sell for the same amount as the dolls which have already been released. The Bandai Premium exclusive version will be more expensive and, based on the other releases, will likely come with Makoto’s school uniform. We’ll share photos of that exclusive once they are revealed.

Sailor Mars Pullip Doll announced

Sailor Mars Pullip Doll

The latest Sailor Moon Pullip doll has been announced. Next in this line of dolls is Sailor Mars! Previously released were Sailor Moon, Mercury and Venus and Princess Serenity. Sailor Mercury and Venus both included civilian school uniforms as their Bandai exclusive bonus. No specifics have been announced about Sailor Mars but it would make sense that she would also come with a school uniform when ordered from Premium Bandai. Sailor Moon came with Luna but as Sailor Venus did not come with Artemis it seems unlikely that Phobos and Deimos will be included as exclusive bonuses.

Pullip dolls are high quality very expensive dolls with disproportionally large heads and eyes. Though there is no specific release date or price noted at this time, it can be expected to sell for $150 for the regular version and $180 for the Premium Bandai exclusive version.

Tuxedo Mask and Sailor Chibi Moon S. H. Figuarts, Sailor Moon Crystal Figuarts Zero and more figures revealed at Tamashi Nations 2014

Sailor Chibi Moon S. H. Figuarts

A ton of new Sailor Moon figures were revealed at this past weekend’s Tamashii Nations 2014 event in Tokyo. We have Sailor Chibi Moon and Tuxedo Mask S. H. Figuarts figures, a new line of Figuarts Zero figures in a Sailor Moon Crystal style and super deformed Tamashii Buddies for the main five Sailor Guardians.

Original anime colour Sailor Moon and Tuxedo Mask S. H. Figuarts figures

We already knew we were expecting to see a Tuxedo Mask S. H. Figuarts figure so that was no real surprise, but Sailor Chibi Moon was news! Also on display is the original anime colours Sailor Moon. The S. H. Figuarts Sailor Moon figure had a slightly different colour palette, including a more pink colour than her original red, but this one is more what fans of the 1992 Sailor Moon anime are used to. S. H. Figuarts figures are high quality highly posable figures. These new S. H. Figuarts figures will likely cost about the same as the other ones that have been released, about $40 to $50 US. What kind of accessories will be included with these figures? We can only speculate, so here we go. The Tuxedo Mask shown has neither a cape or a rose, which would be obvious additions. Sailor Chibi Moon may include her Pink Moon Stick and Luna P. Sailor Pluto remains the only Sailor Guardian not to get an S. H. Figuarts figure as we’re now moving on to other characters. Should we expect to get Chibi Chibi, Ikuko Mama, Shingo and Red Buttler S. H. Figuarts before we see her?

Sailor Moon Crystal Sailor Moon Figuarts Zero

The other big revelation was the new line of Sailor Moon Crystal Figuarts Zero figures. The original Sailor Moon Figuarts Zero line is from Sailor Moon R but these ones are from the new Sailor Moon anime, Sailor Moon Crystal, and have a whole other level of detail to them. I wasn’t terribly impressed with what the Sailor Moon R Figuarts Zero figures had to offer at their price point, but I find these new ones to be quite nice. The Figuarts Zero line are not posable. They are stationary small statuettes. If pricing is similar to the other Sailor Moon Figuarts Zero figures they should cost somewhere in the range of $80 to $90 US.

Sailor Moon Crystal Sailor Mercury Figuarts Zero

Also revealed were more Tamashii Buddies, small non posable super deformed figures. These tiny figures are just 9 cm tall, about 3.5″. Announced to date are Sailor Moon, Mercury, Mars, Jupiter and Venus. Though no prices are given these slightly more affordable figures tend to sell for about $15 US.

Tuxedo Mask S. H. Figuarts figure to be revealed next weekend

Sailor Moon episode 1 - Tuxedo Mask

Next weekend, October 31st to November 2nd, is the Tamashii Nations 2014 event where a number of Bandai’s Tamashii Nations Figuarts and PROPLICA items will be revealed. A news post on the official Sailor Moon site has mentioned that a Tuxedo Mask S. H. Figuarts figure is set to be revealed! S. H. Figuarts includes high quality highly posable figures. All previous S. H. Figuarts figures in this series have been Sailor Guardians because in the bizarro world that is Sailor Moon it’s actually rare to get figures of male characters. Keep checking this site for photos of this new figure as they are released in the next week.

Since a number of new PROPLICA items will also be released it’s possible another Sailor Moon PROPLICA item will be announced. Since the Moon Stick and Cutie Moon Rod have already been released we are overdue to see the Spiral Heart Moon Rod, Sailor Moon’s attack item from the Sailor Moon S season of the anime and the Infinity story arc of the manga.

Speaking of Tuxedo Mask. You know who likes him? Sailor Pluto. Did her Figuarts figure get lost in the planet controversy?

First look at the Sailor Venus Pullip doll

Sailor Venus Pullip doll

The first image of the upcoming Sailor Venus Pullip doll was released on the Sailor Moon official site which prompts us all to ask “Where is Sailor Mars?”. Sailor Venus is the fifth Sailor Guardian to appear yet she’s the third Pullip released! Sailor Moon was released in July and Sailor Mercury will be released in October. Sailor Venus will be shown at a Doll Show coming up on Monday September 15th. Pullip dolls are highly detailed collectible somewhat creepy dolls with disproportionately large heads.

Sailor Mercury as Ami Mizuno Pullip doll

For those looking for the Sailor Mercury doll they can pre-order it from Premium Bandai to get an exclusive school uniform. The normal version is 16,000 yen (about $150 US) while the exclusive version is 19,000 yen (about $178 US). The exclusive for Sailor Moon was Luna. Perhaps the exclusive for Sailor Venus will be Artemis! No specific release date or pricing has been announced for Sailor Venus but she will likely be sold for the same as Sailor Moon and Mercury.

Sailor Mercury Pulip Doll announced

Sailor Mercury Pullip Doll

A Sailor Mercury Pullip doll has been announced on the Sailor Moon official site. This is the second Pullip doll to be announced after the Sailor Moon doll which we have posted about a few times already and was released last month. Pullip dolls are high quality collector’s dolls that are occasionally made for 3rd party franchises, like this one. The Sailor Moon Pullip doll is selling for around $170 so the same can be expected for Sailor Mercury.

We don’t really know any details about this doll that we don’t already know about the Sailor Moon doll. It will be 12″ tall with a big head, high quality clothes, tiara and accessories. Start saving now if this is something you’re interested in!

Bandai to release a Cutie Moon Rod Proplica toy

Proplica Cutie Moon Rod

Bandai has announced the second in it’s line of Proplica Sailor Moon products. The Cutie Moon Rod, the item Sailor Moon receives in Sailor Moon R, was announced earlier this month on Bandai’s official Sailor Moon site and later revealed at the Tokyo Toy Show. New photos and information were recently released at the official site.

Proplica Cutie Moon Rod at the Tokyo Toy Show 2014

Much like the Proplica Moon Stick which has been released and that we have already reviewed, this is a life sized item, measuring 44 cm (17 inches), which looks exactly like the one used by Sailor Moon in the show. It will have lights and sounds and retail for a mere 10,000 yen (about $100 US) which is more than the Moon Stick, but understandable given how much bigger it actually is. Check out the photo above from Sailor Moon German to get a sense of it’s size when placed aside the Moon Stick. Clips of such things as “Moon Princess Halation” will be voiced by Kotono Mitsuishi, the voice of Sailor Moon.

Proplica Cutie Moon Rod

Information about how or where to buy it will be posted as it becomes available. As with the Moon Stick it will likely be available at a number of Japanese retailers and then later sold in North America. For now you can still buy the Moon Stick from the link below.
