About damned time for some new news. :D Now we need preorders!


Hopefully with Toys R Us stocking SH Figuarts on their website and in store this may pop up here in the states.

But yes. Definitely need to preorder. And we have plenty of time to do so.

They are? Hmm, wasn't aware. Admittedly I think I've visited the site I think twice over the past six months or so. ;)

If I spot any preorders, I'll throw the link up. Hopefully others will do the same. :)
Not caring about scale since 1984. Just like Hasbro.

And... BBTS's pre-order is up!

I snagged one of those, too. :D I hope this figure's a success and a sign of things to come.

Great, finally, she is up for preorder. I put an order in a BBTS but I will change that over to amiami when she goes up on there. I prefer amiami over BBTS and I have a montly order option there.

For those, like me, waiting for preorders from amiami, I emailed them asking when preorders will go live. They replied saying they can't list it on the English site despite knowing how many people want it. Looks like I will have to shop elsewhere, unless a Japanese member would like to help me out.

hlj and Hobby Search have closed preorders. They sold out in a day, damn. Also, I found the commercial for it. It also shows the two extra faces in the first run.



I'm tempted to get two. One in an action pose and the other on her knees with cry face.

I don't like to preorder because I most likely won't have the money when I need it.

Also, new anime was pushed to next year as opposed to this summer when it was supposed to premiere. That's never a good thing.

Oh god, they even had Kotono Mitsuishi (Sailor Moon's seiyuu) doing a cheesy voiceover! I love it!

I'll probably get this from Amazon (where I get the rest of my expensive Japanese dollies :lol:) if I find it for a reasonable price.

I know what you mean. It looks like they took 5 robots and combined them into one big robot. It doesn't make any sense!

No, not a good thing at all. :oops: I hope it does air. And we get this and the other Senshi too.

MERCURY POWER, MAKE-UP!!!!!

Yay, I'm so glad the other Senshi are being made. Mercury is looking great and she even has her visor and little computer. My favorite is Mars and hopefully she will be next if they do releases as they appeared in the Anime/Manga.

Yay!

On another note, I started watching Sailor Moon recently (in Japanese of course). I've only seen the first episode, and I LOVED it! Ludicrously campy, and the animation is dreadful, but it has such a wonderful, silly charm to it...I need to watch more.

Also, has anybody else noticed that the girls have disturbingly long legs?

Yeah, the girls in Sailor Moon are the very definition of "legs that go all the way up". Wait till you see Pluto and Uranus. Keep going with the anime, the first few episodes are a bit campy but when the story arc kicks in, it gets really addictive.

Yeah, the anime can get pretty damned good IMHO.

Also, Ami? My favorite character from the series, and of anime overall. I have a grin about ten light-years wide right now. :D :D :D :D

MARS POWER, MAKE UP!!! JUPITER POWER, MAKE UP!!!

YES! Finally, my personal favorite, Sailor Mars has been announced. Not only that but Sailor Jupiter has been announced too. That only leaves Sailor Venus from the Inner Senshi to be shown. No dates on these two but they will certainly be joining Moon and Mercury soon.

Image

Image

I'm glad to see the girls don't just have a shared body. Jupiter is taller than Moon and Mercury, as she should be. Also, here is a look at the prototype for Sailor Mercury:

Image

Finally, a new look at Sailor Moon herself:

Image

Images from comicsalliance.com http://comicsalliance.com/s-h-figuarts-sailor-moon-jupiter-action-figure-sdcc-2013/

Edit, I found this over on http://myfigurecollection.net/item/163473. They updated the image but luckily I saved it.

Image

It looks like Sailor Mars will be out in December, Jupiter will be out in February 2014 and Venus out in April 2014. I don't read Japanese, this is my best guess from what we see in the image.

Note to self: must watch more Sailor Moon so I have an excuse to buy these beautiful figures.

How well do S.H. Figuarts scale with Figmas and the like? I was considering getting the Asuka Revoltech, as there isn't a Figma of her in her old plugsuit, but it would tower above Rei (when I get her) and any other Figmas I have.
