Sailor Moon Finally Getting Her Action Figure Due From Bandai
Naoko Takeuchi’s (the one named) Sailor Moon has been battling evil for 20 years across manga, anime, live action television and even the stage, but unlike a lot of her magical girl contemporaries, the heroine’s fashion doll/statue to action figure ratio is staggeringly imbalanced. As revealed at Japan’s Tamashii Nation 2012 preview event, however, the tide is starting to sort of turn with the reveal of Bandai’s upcoming S.H. Figuarts Sailor Moon figure. From the looks of things, the figure will come packed with the usual S.H. Figuarts accessories including swappable hands and a posable base, plus a tiny Luna the cat and likely crazy effect parts down the road. The figure reveal didn’t clarify a specific release date, but sometime in 2013 seems likely… perhaps followed by figures of the other Sailor Scouts? You can peep a few shots of the upcoming S.H. Figuarts Sailor Moon action figure after the jump.
