If there’s any toy line by any company that’s picking up popularity and momentum faster than Bandai S.H. Figuarts, I don’t know what it is! Easily the most improved toy line of 2013, the S.H. Figuarts brand has expanded in 2013 to include all-popular licenses like Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and Sailor Moon. Sailor Moon and Sailor Mercury have already been out up for order, and now we know when SH Figuarts Sailor Mars, Sailor Jupiter and Sailor Venus will be joining them!
The unpainted prototypes of the Sailor Moon S.H. Figuarts Sailor Jupiter and Sailor Venus figures were also shown at SDCC 2013, but now we’ve seen them in their fully-painted glory as well! Sailor Venus has always been my favorite of the Sailor Soldiers (Sailor Scouts), and I love the look of her action figure with its light blonde hair and orange skirt. But Sailor Jupiter almost steals the show with the excellent sculpting detail on her hair!
SH Figuarts Sailor Jupiter is scheduled to be released in February 2014, with SH Figuarts Sailor Venus following her in April 2014–so we’ll have the core five members of the Sailor Moon anime and manga series assembled by spring of next year! Like the previous Sailor Moon and Sailor Mercury S.H. Figuarts figures, these figures will be available on Amazon with free shipping. But as of yet, none of the remaining three SH Figuarts Sailor Moon figures have gone up for reservations, but I’ll update and add pre-order links as soon as the figures go up for sale.
