More figures on the way?


Oh my God! Please let this be true, please let this be true!! 

Marco Albiero has shared with SMW.it a very interesting find from a friend of his in Asia: A sighting of some probable new articulated figurines!! At the moment they only have these cut outs standees as placeholders, so we have to use our imagination. We can clearly see the marks on knees, legs, wrists and elbows that indicate articulation points, also on the wall behind them is a 3-D rendering of what the model and construction of the dolls will be. No word if they are pre-assembled or come in pieces so that the customer can assemble them themselves. It's noteworthy that these figs don't have the Bandai logo but instead, it's a LEGEND one. This is the first time this company produces Sailor Moon stuff, and it's good! I love that different companies are jumping on the Moonie wagon because that mean we get more stuff!! According to the label under them, they are scheduled to come out in MAY 2013!! That's SO CLOSE you guys!!

This is not only cool because SAILOR MOON TOYS, but also it is a complete set! Other than the Sailor Moon World dolls/gashapon I don't think we have any other complete collection that includes all of the senshi in a single set (Irwin dolls don't count, the boxes are all different!) At this point, this might only be a rumor. We have no confirmation from any official sources, but let's keep our hopes up. Sailor Moon is a HUGE franchise and I'm sure they wouldn't drop the line.... right?

More info as it becomes available!
