I hope they do not do it exactually like the manga, the manga wasn't very good. While I do agree the monster of the week was over done it would be nice to have a variety of monsters in there, like the 7 they get the rainbow crystals from, hords of lesser creatures like they did in the movies. Also enemies that have nothing to do with the main villian(s) of the season like the lake monster, the haunted house that turned out to a psychic powered little girl, ghosts, malfunctioning robot, etc.
Tamashii Nations 2012: Sailor Moon Figures!
BY LEAH BAYER – OCTOBER 25, 2012
POSTED IN: HOME, PVC
People have been begging for Sailor Moon figures for a very long time, but the creator had a tight hold on the license. However, a new anime was announced recently, and it’s the 20th anniversary of the franchise. Apparently the licensers are feeling generous finally, because Bandai has snagged the license! With this and Pokemon announced in the last 2 days, they sure are hopping on the nostalgia train.
We’re getting a S.H.Figuart AND a Chibi-Art of Sailor Moon herself, and as you can see in the background the rest of the Sailor Scouts have been announced as well! I assume that we’ll get Figuarts and Chibi-Arts of all of the main 5 at least: maybe Tuxedo Mask and some of the Outer Senshi as well? Either way, I a
And there is this version too!
Matty, I am sorry, but see how design decisions to make a figure "pop", swapped limbs, and rushed paint can get you into a creative corner? This will be where my money goes.
I recently broke the seal of buying Japanese figures with an Evangelion Asuka. Sailor Mars may have to be next.
Oh lord SH Figuarts are incredible and now we get Sailor Moon!! My wallet cries today :hmlol:
That Sailor Moon looks AWESOME!!! How much is she going to cost?
I would say plan for $45 and that should work, of course the way the Figuarts work the 5 regular Sailors will be normal priced and the 3 older Sailors (Uranus, Saturn, Pluto) will be exclusives and therefore $90-120
That may seem excessive but as Dr Kain points out in the SH Figuarts thread, they come with a ridiculous amount of accessories and the paint apps/quality of the figure is light years above a $7-10 action figure
Hell, the paint apps are light years better than a $25 toy.
I am really excited about the new show but I may be more excited about the figures. With DBZ in the SH Figuarts line it's about time another classic like Sailor Moon is getting the high end collectibles treatment. I can just imagine the accessories are gonna be nice.
Yeah, if the show is bad at least we know the figures will be great.
The original show has been a guilty pleasure anime for me since i was 13 about 17 years ago when i saw it on TV and in fansub tapes, i did had a crush on some of the girls on the show even when i was a teen watching the dubbed version on Cartoon Network :sklol:
But let's see how this reboot turns out
