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?

Princess Serenity Pullip doll

Yet another Sailor Moon Pullip doll has been announced on the official Sailor Moon site. This doll is Princess Serenity, Usagi’s past self from her days in Silver Millennium, the Kingdom on the Moon. Princess Serenity joins the growing collection of dolls which now also includes Sailor Moon, Mercury and Venus. Still no indication as to when Sailor Mars and Jupiter will be released.

Pullip dolls are high quality somewhat realistic and somewhat creepy dolls with disproportionally large heads and facial features. While no price is listed on the site this doll is expected to sell for about $150 US with a special Bandai exclusive edition selling for close to $180. The exclusive Sailor Moon came with Luna, Sailor Mercury came with Ami’s school uniform and Sailor Venus came with Minako’s school uniform. What do you think the Bandai exclusive Princess Serenity will come with?

New dresses and lingerie items from Peach John

Sailor Chibi Moon lingerie

The first round of Sailor Moon pyjamas and lingerie were released in February. Now, as posted on the official Sailor Moon site, Peach John is expanding their line to include lingerie of all 10 Sailor Guardians as well as 7 dresses including some school uniforms. They now offer lingerie for rest of the Sailor Guardians, Sailor Uranus, Neptune, Saturn, Pluto and of course the completely inappropriate Sailor Chibi Moon lingerie! The existing and new lingerie items have also been upgraded to include a skirt! They still include the original bra top, panties and choker on top of the new skirts. That’s right, you’ll need to upgrade your Sailor Moon, Mercury, Mars, Jupiter and Venus lingerie sets. All sets cost 7,538 yen (about $70 US).

Sailor Moon lingerie and dresses

This round isn’t all about lingerie! Bandai is also offering some costume style dresses of some of the Sailor Guardians’ civilian school uniforms as well as dresses for Princess Serenity and Black Lady. Go to school dressed up as Usagi, Ami, Rei, Makoto or Minako. The school uniforms are 5,378 yen (about $50 US). If you’re really rich the Princess Serenity dress is 14,018 (about $130 US) though at a slightly more affordable 9,698 (about $90) you might be able to convince your father to buy you the Black Lady dress.

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.

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.

Bandai’s Proplica Moon Stick first impressions

Bandai’s Proplica Moon Stick is now available in North America! I received mine a few days ago and I think it looks great. This is by far the most accurate looking Moon Stick to date. It comes with a stand, a swappable Silver Crystal and even a cradle to put the Silver Crystal in when not in use.

Above is a size comparison of this toy to a few others I had. The toy lights up and plays a variety of sound clips, given you get the three LR44 batteries it takes. I was able to find some at the dollar store. The sounds it makes are different depending on how long you hold the button, what the switch at the base of the toy is set to and whether or not the Silver Crystal is in the toy. Voice clips are from the anime, mostly being that of Kotono Mitsuishi though Mika Doi can also be heard as the voice of Queen Serenity. The manual coming with the toy describes all of these, given you can read Japanese, and also gives an overview of the Moon Stick in the anime and other toys that came before it.

Support this site by ordering the item from the Amazon link below. It’s not cheap but I think it’s worth the price.

Keep reading for a ton more photos of the Moon Stick and it’s packaging.

Sailor Moon Pullip doll

The Sailor Moon Pullip doll which was announced in March is available for pre-order in Japan and with that we have more details about it. The doll will be released in July and will cost a whopping 17,280 yen, about $170 US. Pullip dolls sure aren’t cheap! This kind of price is expected for a licensed doll like this. Sailor Moon also comes with a mini stuffed Luna accessory.

Sailor Uranus S. H. Figuarts Sailor Neptune S. H. Figuarts

This Saturday and Sunday in Akihabara Japan is the Tamashii Nations Summer Collection 2014 event. At this event they’ve revealed the Sailor Uranus and Sailor Neptune S. H. Figuarts figures as well as Sailor Mars and Sailor Jupiter in the Figuarts Zero line!

Sailor Mars Figuarts ZERO Sailor Jupiter Figuarts ZERO

The figures shown are all prototypes so they have no colour, except for a bit of colour in the eyes of the S. H. Figuarts figures. The S. H. Figuarts line are small very posable figures with many swappable parts such as extra faces and hands. The Figuarts ZERO line are of larger more expensive statues that feature a single pose for that character.

Sailor Saturn S. H. Figuarts

Also on display were all of the previous Figuarts items including a colour version of S. H. Figuarts Sailor Saturn which was displayed a while ago on the official site. Sailor Saturn is now available for pre-order in Japan from sites like JList, CD Japan and YesAsia for an August release.
