Revealed at the Tamashii Nations exhibit at Winter Wonder Fest 2015, the S.H. Figuarts Sailor V figure officially joins Tamashii’s Figuarts Sailor Moon lineup, today.
Seen in both the manga Codename: Sailor V and more recently the Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Crystal anime, Sailor V is the secret identity of Sailor Venus. The S.H. Figuarts Sailor V figure is a Tamashii Web exclusive item and includes interchangeable hands, face parts and accessories including a display base. We discussed Sailor V with the Bandai Japan team at Toy Fair in February (as well as some of the other Sailor Moon reveals from Winter Wonder Fest 2015 missing at Toy Fair) and the consensus was that the character wasn’t well-known enough for a mainstream release. The Bandai team wasn’t certain about if the figure would be released in North America, so you may want to track this one down from Japan, if you can.
The S.H. Figuarts Sailor V is available for pre-order now, priced at ¥5,480 or about $45, and will be released in October.
