I had it coming: After Pullip Sailor Neptune, who was the fifth Pullip and therefore a pioneer for my other girls, moved in a long time ago, Pullip Uranus has finally joined her and I don’t need to have a bad conscience anymore to stand in the way of true love! ⭐
Pullip Princess Kakyu literally arrived at my doorstep this morning and I had to share her with you immediately because I just feel that she is such a fabulous Pullip release! She is brand new and was just released in Japan last Saturday, which made her arrival even more surprising and joyous for me! Princess Kakyu is a character from Sailor Moon’s last storyline/anime season and Groove Inc. did an amazing job to bring her character into (dolly) life! 🌖
It had been only a matter of days after reviewing the Funko Pop! Sailor Neptune figure, that I knew, I could not deny her an existence without Sailor Uranus any longer! This is how my second Funko Sailor Senshi joined my figure collection and will never leave Neptune’s side! Continue reading Funko Pop! Sailor Uranus
Finding particular Sailor Moon merchandise in Japan can unfortunately not be as easy as you might think. Or you might happen to find exactly, what you wanted, but then the prize is double or triple the amount of its initial value. Many items were only manufactured according to the amount of pre-orders. After missing out on pre-ordering it, attaining products can become a nightmare, as it is often the case with Sailor Moon products by Bandai. This is exactly the reason, why I often prefer to buy my Sailor Moon goodies over the internet because sometimes even Ebay can be less of a struggle than trying to find a grail product in person! On the contrary, you can have lots of fun by having an open mind and looking at merchandise, which you might otherwise would not have thought about appreciating. These are all of the pretties I have obtained last September: Continue reading My Sailor Moon Goodies from Japan / Part 1
Funko Pop!’s vinyl figures rose to so much fame in the last few years that I am pretty sure that no introduction to them is necessary, since they are so good in fulfilling everybody’s pop culturall needs. I got my first figure, Princess Amidala, in Saint-Denis in 2013, when visiting the Star Wars Identities exhibition and was magically able to resist their other dozens and dozens of figures – until now! Toei Animation teamed up with Funko! to bring us the beloved characters from Sailor Moon; first the inner and now even the outer senshi. And of course I had to get my favourite Sailor Neptune first! Continue reading Funko Pop! Sailor Neptune
Last December I remember running around Tokyo to find the newly released Qposket Sailor Moon set including my favourite outer senshi Sailor Neptune. You might have already read my review on her Pullip doll or seen my past collection in an Instagram post, so it should not be a surprise that I was beyond happy to have found the whole set nine months later in a secondhand store in Akihabara (which still remains the only time I have spotted it since then). The prize was pretty reasonable with 2980 Yen and I should also mention that, just as my Rapunzel figure, those figures were prices in crane machines in Japanese arcades. Let’s get started with some Sailor Moon cuteness!
Even though I wanted this set mainly for Sailor Neptune, the figure of Sailor Moon is my favorite! Her face looks the cutest to me, her mouth the poutiest and her pose the most iconic. The biggest surprise are the decorations in her dangos, which have a lovely orange red sheen. Her hairstyle in general looks lovely and also the metallic sheen of her jewelry is stunning. For a smaller Sailor Moon figure, I am so surprised by the quality and accuracy. Her face is very peachy toned and she has the prettiest greenish blue eyes. She also comes with a clear yellow stand, which also supports her head in the back. Continue reading Qposket Petit Vol. 3: Sailor Moon, Sailor Neptune & Sailor Uranus
If you are a fan of Sailor Moon or a silly schoolgirl with a heart of gold called Usagi Tsukino, you are probably going to have a hard time choosing your favorite Pullip version of this beloved character. So far there have been four Pullip doll releases: Sailor Moon, Super Sailor Moon, Eternal Sailor Moon and Princess Serenity from 2015, who today’s review is all about. Even though I am a big Sailor Moon fan, collecting the various releases proved to be quite a difficult task for me, since most dolls come with little stock and higher prices. While I do intend to get Pullip Eternal Sailor Moon in the near future, Princess Serenity’s stock is so beautiful and her face up has such nice details that I could not get her out of my head and she ended up being the second addition from the Sailor Moon series after Sailor Neptune in my collection! Continue reading Review: Pullip Princess Serenity (2014)
This is my second post about a Megahouse Sailor Moon Petit Chara release. Click here, if you are interested in the Sailor Moon Yukata Special!
Another limited release from 2016 is this four piece set, which includes characters from the last Sailor Moon season, Sailor Stars, from the 90ies anime. Being a limited release the figures come in a special night blue cardboard box with shiny foliage silhouettes of the Sailor Starlights on its lid. Inside the box, the figures are protected by foam and they also come with their own stands. Most of the time, Petit Chara-stands are designed differently for each individual figure, but in this case, they are all the same. They are a dark matte navy with the golden Starlights-symbol and stars on it. Continue reading Petit Chara Land: Sailor Moon ‘Three Lights’
