Super Sailor Mercury’s S. H. Figuarts figure will come with a harp used for her Mercury Aqua Rhapsody attack

Super Sailor Mercury S. H. Figuarts with harp

The Super Sailor Mercury figure was revealed last July at the Wonder Festival 2015 Summer. Now over a year later we have some details and a release date. The figure will come with a harp accessory which Sailor Mercury uses during her Mercury Aqua Rhapsody attack. It will be released in April 2017.

Sailor Moon SuperS episode 151 - Sailor Mercury and Ami

Since a standard Sailor Mercury S. H. Figuarts figure is already out the appeal of this figure seems a bit questionable. This line of figures is of a great quality and I’ve happily purchased most of them but I just can’t see myself double dipping and getting the “Super” variants of every character for another 4860 yen, about $47, a piece. Since a Sailor Moon Crystal Sailor Moon is coming in January it seems a bit much to buy three or more versions of each character. Will we be seeing Super Sailor Mars, Jupiter, Venus and the rest soon? I thought we would learn about them last summer but at this rate who knows what they’re doing.

It should be noted that this figure looks a bit different than the prototype we saw in July 2015 alongside the now released S. H. Figuarts Super Sailor Moon. This is normal as prototypes are always subject to change as release gets closer.

A Sailor Moon Crystal S. H. Figuarts figure is coming in January

Sailor Moon Crystal S. H. Figuarts

A new Sailor Moon Crystal S. H. Figuarts figure has been posted to the Tamashii Nations official site. This is Sailor Moon, once again, but this time it is a Sailor Moon Crystal version of Sailor Moon. We had previously gotten some Figuarts Zero statues in Sailor Moon Crystal versions but this is the first Sailor Moon Crystal S. H. Figuarts figure. S. H. Figuarts figures are high quality very posable figures with many extra faces and hands so that you can make them do pretty much anything you can imagine.

This version of Sailor Moon has the Cosmic Heart Compact on her chest, from the Infinity Arc. Will more of the Sailor Guardians be released next? An S. H. Figuarts Sailor Moon Crystal Sailor Mercury would be the obvious next release. Who would you most like to see in this style of figure?

The figure will be released this January. No price has been announced yet but they usually sell for about $50 when first released domestically.



A Black Lady Pullip Doll and S. H. Figuarts figure are coming

Black Lady Pullip Doll

A couple of new Black Lady products have been revealed. Black Lady is the evil grown up version of Chibiusa who likes to make out with her father. The Black Lady Pullip doll was revealed on the official Sailor Moon site. The doll will be coming this December and will cost 18,000 yen, about $150 US. Pullip Dolls are high quality creepy looking ultra expensive dolls with huge eyes and heads. They usually cost around $150 to $180 US when released in North America.

Black Lady S. H. Figuarts figure with Wise Man Figure at Tamashii Nation 2015 Event

This weekend at the Tamashii Nation 2015 Event a Black Lady S. H. Figuarts figure was also revealed. Not a lot of detail is known about this figure. At the event a Wise Man figure can be seen behind it but there was not label for this. It is not posable so it is not part of the S. H. Figuarts line and it seems too small to be part of the Figuarts Zero line. Is this to be included with the Black Lady figure? If it is this is much bigger than anything else which accompanied any other S. H. Figuarts toys. We’ll have more details on this as we learn them, assuming this will be for sale and not just a prop for the display.

Also revealed at this event was one of the most uninteresting S. H. Figuarts figures to date. A Sailor Moon R version of Sailor Moon! How completely similar to the version we’ve already gotten! She has a Cutie Moon Rod and slightly different Brooch. S. H. Figuarts dolls are very details and posable figures with swappable parts. They usually cost about $50 when released in North America.

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?

Sailor Uranus and Neptune S. H. Figuarts as well as Sailor Mars and Jupiter Figuarts Zero figures revealed

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.

Sailor Saturn S. H. Figuarts prototype revealed at Wonder Festival 2014

Sailor Saturn S. H. Figuarts Prototype

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.

Sailor Saturn S. H. Figuarts Prototype along with Sailor Venus, Jupiter, Mars, Moon and Mercury

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.

Sailor Venus’s S. H. Figuarts figure, coming in April, will include Sailor V’s mask and Artemis

Sailor Venus S. H. Figuarts figure smiling

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!

Artemis S. H. Figuarts Figure

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.

Bandai’s PROLICA Moon Stick will go on sale in April 2014

PROLICA Moon Stick - Zoomed in

We’ve got a better look at the new Tamashii Nations Moon Stick toy which we now know will go on sale in Japan next April. The Moon Stick is part of the new PROLICA line which is a portmanteau of prop and replica. This very accurate looking life sized replica will retail for 8,800 yen, which is about $90 US, though you can currently preorder it from JList for $120. The crystal included is removable. There are 7 coloured LEDs on the Moon Stick and it comes with a stand for displaying.

PROLICA Moon Stick - Lights

The Moon Stick includes a voice chip which will speak in the voice of Sailor Moon’s voice actress Kotono Mitsuishi. With the new anime planned for January, 3 months before this toy is released, some are speculating that Kotono Mitsuishi’s voice being used for this Moon Stick could mean that she will be reprising her role as Sailor Moon in the show. If a new actress was playing Sailor Moon when this toy was released it could cause confusion for this prop to have a different voice. Kotono Mitsuishi mentioned being interested in reprising her role at the 20th Anniversary Event last summer when the new anime was originally announced but we have not yet had any confirmation of any casting for the show. It’s likely that this Moon Stick’s design and voice are simply based off of the original anime, which the identical design certainly supports, but having not seen any art from the new anime yet it’s possible the new Moon Stick will also look like this.

New Moon Stick toy coming soon from Tamashii Nations

New Moon Stick Toy by Tamashii Nations

A post was made this morning to Moonkitty’s Facebook page stating that a new Moon Stick was spotted at the Sailor Moon La Reconquista musical which is currently playing in Japan. It was clear that no photographs are allowed. Is a video a photograph? Because someone got a video! Check that out!

The case has the Tamashii Nations logo on it, so it stands to reason that they will be releasing the toy. The design of this Moon Stick seems consistent with that of the original toy from the 1992 anime meaning that this is either yet another toy for the original anime or, assuming it’s something from the new 2014 Sailor Moon anime, this would indicate that the design of the Moon Stick will be unchanged. I’d be inclined to say it’s more likely just based on the original design.
