All discussion of the show’s quality aside (and we could definitely have some heated discussions about its quality), there’s no contesting that the Sailor Moon Crystal anime is coming out a glacial pace of just two episodes per month. But over six months after the debut of the series, the second arc of Sailor Moon Crystal is about to begin–and we’ll soon be seeing the sometimes-loved Sailor Chibi Moon, Chibiusa, in the anime! Bandai Tamashii Nations is ready to celebrate by expanding the best-selling S.H. Figuarts Sailor Moon line–the SH Figuarts Chibi Moon figure is now up for order!
Whether you love her or not (and believe it or not, not everyone does), Chibiusa is an iconic Sailor Senshi! And following up the release of every other one of the Sailor Senshi (besides poor Sailor Pluto), a Sailor Chibi Moon SH Figuarts figure is coming our way in summer 2015 (just in time to coincide with her appearances in the Sailor Moon Crystal anime)!
The single most important thing with a Sailor Chibi Moon figure is scale, and I’m absolutely thrilled to see that Bandai Tamashii Nations has properly scaled the SH Figuarts Chibi Moon figure to look perfect alongside the S.H. Figuarts Sailor Moon action figure! Way to go, Bandai Japan!
And despite the fact that she’s the smallest figure in the SH Figuarts Sailor Moon lineup, the S.H. Figuarts Chibi Moon figure will feature all of the super-articulation that fans have come to know and love from the line.
SH Figuarts Sailor Chibi Moon will also come loaded with accessories, as she’ll include her pink Moon Stick, as well as ten interchangeable hands, three interchangeable faces (including an adorably fierce “angry” face), a special display stand figure base, and even interchangeable bangs (yes, interchangeable bangs). Not bad for the pint-sized pink Sailor Senshi, right?
The Sailor Moon S.H. Figuarts Sailor Chibi Moon figure is now available for order, and is scheduled to be released in June/July 2015. Chibiusa isn’t exactly at the top of my list of most-beloved characters from the Sailor Moon anime, but I’ve purchased all of the other Sailor Soldiers, so I’ll be picking up Sailor Chibi Moon as well.
How do you like the SH Figuarts Chibi Moon figure, anime collectors? Are you excited about the best Chibiusa figure ever made, or is Sailor Chibi Moon just not for you, regardless of the quality of her action figure?
