Sometimes things don’t work out the way you planned, but Plan B shows up unexpectedly and you realize that it worked out just as well.

When Sailor Saturn still hadn’t shipped from Amazon, I was starting to get worried. I’d ordered from Amazon, not a 3rd party seller, but all the 3rd parties had her in stock and were shipping them while the only update we got from Amazon was an email asking if we still wanted the item. Concerned and impatient, I turned to Barnes and Noble. Why, you ask? Well, turns out some of the B&Ns in the area have some very nice SH Figuarts and Gundam model display cases now. Of the two B&Ns within 15 minutes of us, one has these displays and thankfully had 1 Sailor Saturn in stock. So I rushed there and with 15 minutes left until closing, Sailor Saturn was mine. It made me a little sad to cancel the Amazon order but that was squashed by the excitement of having Saturn in hand. (more…)

After months of impatiently waiting for her, my new Sailor Moon figure from Bandai Tamashii Nations finally arrived on Tuesday. The first of at least four unveiled figures, the first edition Sailor Moon figure features a total of 6 interchangeable heads, two wands, a bunch of hands and a tiny plastic Luna companion. Usagi’s winking and crying faces are exclusive to the first run of this figure which made it a definite pre-order for me.

(Please ignore the kitchen mess in the background as I had been baking that afternoon.) (more…)
