Holiday Gift Guide: The Sailor Moon S.H. Figuarts Action Figure

Sailor Moon S.H. Figuarts
Bandai

When it comes to the holiday gift-giving season, comic book readers are notoriously difficult to shop for. I mean, most of us are down at the shop buying our favorite stuff every single week, so when the time comes for people who like us to get us something we want, well, a lot of times we already have it. That’s why we’re stepping in with a public service, bringing you comics-related items sure to make the season brighter, whether you’re browsing for a gift or just looking for something to drop hints about so that you don’t get stuck with a random assortment of back issues again.

So why not celebrate your inner magical girl with one of the best action figures of the year: The S.H. Figuarts Sailor Moon figure!

It was only a few days ago that CA’s own Caleb Goellner was writing about how great Bandai’s S.H. Figuarts line of high-end action figures are, but while he focused on the Power Rangers, that line has a lot of figures to offer. I’ve got a ton of the Kamen Rider figures, but one of the best figures they’ve put out this year is definitely Sailor Moon, released just in time for everyone to get excited about this new anime that’s happening some time in the vague future.

Even beyond any nostalgia you may have for Sailor Moon and her crew of miniskirted vigilantes, it’s a really great figure, which is good since, like most S.H. Figuarts offerings, she comes in at a pretty hefty $40. In return, she has a bunch of interchangeable hands, including one with the “Moon Tiara Magic” effect, as well as two different variations of her Moon wand (one of which includes the “Legendary Silver Crystal”) and her cat, Luna, who has an articulated neck. Best of all, though, the Sailor Moon Figuarts includes a handful of interchangeable faces:

To be honest, I’ve been a little leery of swapping out the face on mine since it involves removing her bangs and prying off the face leaving some kind of lovecraftian horror before you get everything back again, but that big-mouthed crying face is pretty delightful.

Plus, start this one off and you’re set for the next couple of holidays, too: Sailor Mercury is out now, and Sailor Mars is out in January. If you have a couple of Andrew Jacksons to drop on toys to brighten up your desk, they make perfect gifts for someone who really, really likes Sailor Moon. Like, say, most of the staff of ComicsAlliance.

Hint hint.
