Sailor Moon figure Q & A with Tamashii Nations USA

A few weeks ago, Sailordees posed some questions that the Moon Chase staff and fans had to our contact at Bluefin/Tamashii Nations North America about the upcoming Sailor Moon figures. Here are the questions that were asked and the answers that we received:

MC: When approximately will Sailor Mars, Jupiter and Venus be up for order in North America?

B/TNUSA: Generally, the pre-order window begins about 3-4 months before the month of release.

MC: Will there be an Artemis figure included with Sailor Venus?

B/TNUSA: Likely, however that information is unavailable at this time given that figure’s release’s is still far away.

MC: Is there a Tuxedo Mask figure in the pipeline or are there only the heroines being produced?

B/TNUSA: That cannot be answered at this time.

MC: Will the SD/Chibi keychains be available in North America or are those Japanese exclusives?

B/TNUSA: The keychain doesn’t appear to be made by Tamashii Nations, therefore I can’t answer that

MC: Do you know if there is a Sailor V figure being planned?

B/TNUSA: That cannot be answered at this time.

MC:. Do you know of other figures being planned, such as the Outer Senshi (Sailors Neptune, Uranus, Pluto, and fan-favorite Saturn) or Princess Serenity?

B/TNUSA:  That cannot be answered at this time.

MC:  Do you know if either Bluefin/Tamashii Nations, or any other North American company affiliated with Bandai Entertainment will be releasing any of the Japanese Premium Bandai products in North America?

B/TNUSA: The Bandai Premium situation is somewhat complicated, we for example are selling only a select number of Premium items such as those from Dragon Ball Z or Godzilla or Power Rangers/Sentai based on demand.  If there are S.H. Figuarts Sailor Moon items from the Premium Bandai shop (Tamashii Web Store) we will have those available for the U.S. as well.

There is more news regarding the new S.H. Figuarts Sailor Moon  figures, as pictures of the final finished figure for Sailor Moon have been released. Please click here to see pictures of the figure!
