Bandai will be releasing Crystal Star and Cosmic Heart Compact Mirrorcase cosplay items this coming March. These are high quality full sized reproductions which will sell for 4725 yen, about $46 US. The compacts open up to feature a mirror and some small compartments. The Crystal Star was Sailor Moon’s transformation item from Sailor Moon R and the Cosmic Heart Compact was her transformation item from the Sailor Moon S series.
Can’t wait that long? No problem. In January five transformation items will be released as capsule toys. The entire set can be preordered now from JList for only $22. The set includes Sailor Moon’s original transformation brooch from the first season, her Crystal Star Brooch from Sailor Moon R, her Cosmic Heart Compact from Sailor Moon S and her Crisis Moon Compact and Sailor Chibi Moon’s Chibi Moon Compact from Sailor Moon SuperS.
Bandai will be releasing a series of very nice looking very expensive Sailor Moon necklaces which are made to resemble some of Sailor Moon’s transformation items. From left to right on the larger image we have gold and silver versions of Sailor Moon’s original Transformation Brooch from the first season, a pink and silver version of the Crystal Star Brooch from Sailor Moon R and Sailor Chibi Moon’s Prism Heart Compact and Sailor Moon’s Cosmic Heart Compact from Sailor Moon S.
These are high end items! Like the rings we reported on earlier they are real jewelry. All are made of silver and some are gold plated. They’re sold at real jewelry prices! Each necklace is currently price at 12,600 yen which equates to about $125 US. Go ahead and get approval for that loan if you’re hoping to get all six! As you can see from the model wearing one these are quite small. No this is not a gigantic Japanese model wearing a life sized broach, they are about 3/4 of an inch in diameter.
Our baller readers may pre-order these items now through Bandai’s store. Keep reading for a close up look of all of the necklaces.
New figures of Sailor Moon and the rest of the nine Sailor Soldiers will be available in May from Legend Studio.
Sailor Moon Collectibles reports that a few pictures from the ACG Comic Expo in Guangzhou, China from December have surfaced. These pictures show that there will be the nine figures of Sailor Moon, Mercury, Mars, Jupiter, Venus, Pluto, Uranus, Neptune and Saturn. Unfortunately we just get cutouts with no real indication of what the toys would look like for most of the girls but we get a bit more of a look at Sailor Moon herself. There are some CG renders of the Sailor Moon figure and it’s individual parts which gives us a good idea of what the finished product might look like. We see for example that the figure will have a number of swappable faces and by seeing all the pieces we can get a good idea of the articulation the final product might have.
