This weekend at Wonder Festival 2014 in Chiba Japan Bandai revealed their prototype for the Sailor Saturn S. H. Figuarts figure. After Sailor Moon, Mercury, Mars, Jupiter and Venus had been revealed it was not clear who would be next, but we now know it will be Sailor Saturn. This prototype is not painted so it is only grey.
Why Sailor Saturn? This seems like an odd choice given earlier figures were released in the order of their appearance in the manga and anime, though we seem to be getting Sailor Venus before Sailor Jupiter. The next obvious choice would have been Sailor Pluto or perhaps Sailor Uranus or Neptune or even Tuxedo Mask or Sailor Chibi Moon but not Sailor Saturn, based on order of appearance alone. Regardless, Sailor Saturn is a popular character and her Silence Glaive accessory looks great. Looking forward to seeing more of this figure and what other Sailor Moon characters will come in the S. H. Figuarts line. I wouldn’t chance a guess at who we’ll see next at this point.
You can already buy Sailor Moon, Mercury and Mars using the links below. Sailor Venus will be released on May 21st in North America and on April 30th in Japan.

The Tamashii Nations’ official Sailor Moon site has been updated with details about the Sailor Venus S. H. Figuarts figure which will be on sale starting in April. We finally have a look at some of the alternate faces and accessories and can now confirm that the figure will indeed come with Artemis and will also include Sailor V’s mask!
As with the other figures Sailor Venus will be 14 cm tall, roughly 5.5″. The site lists her price as being 4536 yen, roughly $43 US. This seems to be more than the other figures sold for but this is because the Japanese sales tax will go from 5% to 8% on April first, which will affect this figure. The pre tax price for all S. H. Figuarts figures is 4200 yen, about $40 US, so this figure will cost you about the same as the others did.
Speaking of other figures! Sailor Moon and Sailor Mercury are out. Sailor Mars has recently been released in Japan and will be for sale in North America as of January 15th. You can order Sailor Moon and Mercury and pre-order Sailor Mars from the links below to support this site.
There are currently no sites offering international preorders for Sailor Venus but we will share that information as it becomes available. Preorders in Japan begin January 7th.
The pre-order for Bandai’s Sailor Mars S. H. Figuarts figure has been available on Amazon for a few weeks now but I didn’t get a chance to post about it but that’s okay because it’s a pre-order! The figure won’t be released in North American until January 15th. You can get the figure a bit earlier if you import it from Japan but be prepared to pay for it in shipping! The figure is out on December 31st in Japan so you won’t be getting it that much sooner, as compared to other figures. You can pre-order it from sites like JList, CD Japan, YesAsia or Amazon Japan.
Can’t wait to get a figure? The Sailor Moon figure is actually out and you can get it now from Amazon! It’s been out for a while in Japan and has just been released in North America. Many fans have already gotten their figures (mine is still in the mail) but if you didn’t pre-order it you can order it now and it will ship right away. Sailor Mercury is also available for pre-order from Amazon for a December 15th release date. If you’re impatient you can import the toy from sites like CD Japan or Amazon Japan and it will ship on October 31st.
We also now finally have colour pictures of the Sailor Venus figure, previously seen only as a prototype, and the Sailor Jupiter figure which we hadn’t seen before. Check out this group shot from the S. H. Figuarts Sailor Moon site.

Bandai’s S. H. Figuarts Sailor Moon figure has hit stores in Japan. A few people have already gotten their hands on the figure and so there are a lot of pictures of it surfacing online. We’ve got a look at some of the packaging and all the individual pieces as well as a ton of other photos on this Japanese blog post.
As we had previously seen there are a lot of different swappable faces. Here is a good look at all six of them.
The colour version of Bandai’s S. H. Figuarts figure was unveiled last weekend at Wonder Festival 2013. We don’t really have more details about this figure at this point but the price should be similar to the Sailor Moon and Mercury figures which we already know more about.

Bandai’s Sailor Venus S. H. Figuarts figure has finally been revealed. She joins Sailor Moon, Mercury, Mars and Jupiter to complete the main group of five girls. It was only a matter of time before Venus would be revealed. Now it’s anyone’s guess as to who might be next. Sailor Chibi Moon? Sailor Pluto followed by Uranus and Neptune? Maybe we’ll see a Tuxedo Mask figure!
In this image brought to us by the Cybergundam Blog we also get a better look at Sailor Mars’s prototype figure. Currently we’ve only seen colour versions of the Sailor Moon and Mercury figures but colour versions of Sailor Mars, Jupiter and Venus will be along in time. Bandai’s S. H. Figuarts figures are very detailed with many swappable parts. You can pre-order Sailor Moon and Sailor Mercury from the links at the bottom of this post. We’ll update the site with more links as they become available.
Sailor Jupiter is joining the ranks of Sailor Moon, Mercury and Mars with a great looking S. H. Figuarts figure by Bandai. This picture was taken at San Diego Comic-Con. Once again like with the other figures we’re just looking at a prototype right now. It doesn’t have any colour yet but the final figure will. We can only assume that the price point for this figure will be comparable to the others in the line. Both Sailor Moon and Sailor Mercury are currently listed on Amazon for $42.
Bandai’s line of S. H. Figuarts figures are highly detailed and posable figures with many swappable parts. It seems likely at this point that a Sailor Venus figure won’t be far behind. Who will come after that? We can only speculate!
Bandai’s Sailor Mercury S. H. Figuarts figure is now available for pre-order from Amazon. The figure will be available December 15th. You can order it through the link below.
Can’t wait that long? The Sailor Moon figure will be out October 1st. Sailor Mars must be close behind at this point! All figures and manga sold at Amazon can be purchased from our Amazon Store located on the left sidebar of the main page.
We finally have a first look at the Sailor Mars prototype figure from Bandai’s S. H. Figuarts line! This figure is being unveiled at the Japan Expo in Paris which technically starts later today, July 4th. Like the other figures in this line it will be a very detailed very posable figure with many swappable parts. This is a prototype so the design could change but the Sailor Mercury full colour figure ended up being pretty much as shown. We’ll have to wait and see what kind of accessories Sailor Mars may come with. Any guesses? I would think we could see her Ofuda, the piece of paper on which her charm is inscribed, and maybe Phobos and Deimos, her pet crows.
With all of these products coming out soon Sailor Moon fans are all wondering what options they have for purchasing these items in North America. Luckily between online stores YesAsia and J-List a lot of these products are currently up for pre-order.
YesAsia currently has pre-orders up for the Crystal Star Brooch “Sailor Moon R Moon Miracle Romance Shining Powder” as well as the Star Power Stick nail polish “Sailor Moon R Miracle Romance Nail Collection”. J-List has pre-orders available for the Crisis Moon Compact gold and silver rings and Bandai’s new Sailor Mercury S. H. Figuarts figure.
None of these stores are affiliated with ours so we make no guarantees but they are well established online stores that have been operating for years. Since these are import toys you will notice that you are paying a premium price for being able to order any of these.
