So these are now officially up for preorder at CDJapan for $11 a peice. Shipping is kind of expensive, but registered SAL has some tracking with signature confirmation for about half the cost.

Also note you need the final amount in your account to "authorize" the order, or if you pay with Paypal, the cost will be deducted immediately.

You can find Uranus here.

Petit Chara 2 features Sailor Uranus

Source: MyFigureCollection
I'm so stoked for Saturn (my true love for collecting) and Uranus! No word on preorders yet, but will post when there are some.

I think Uranus' pose is kinda... er, girly? I don't know, seems kinda off, but it's Uranus and it's cute! <3

Stay tuned!

New Series keychain previewed!

Big thanks to SailorMoonCollectibles for the heads up!

As some of you know, there has been an explosion of the original 5, sometimes Chibi-Usa merchandise, recently, due to the new series. This is the first we've technically seen of any of the outers with their Gashapon Keychains Series 2!

 Let me just say right off the bat the fact that they have their talismans make this a must buy for me. The attention to detail is beautiful.

Details by SMCollectibles: "This time it will be a complete set of 5, featuring Sailor Moon, Chibiusa, Sailor V, Sailor Uranus & Sailor Neptune. These will be available in Japan in gashapon machines starting February 2014 for 300yen each."

She will also post preordering info once it is availible, so please follow her blog!

A few auctions

There are some good Uranus finds on Ebay right now. I can't afford them so I'm passing them your way:

Irwin 2001 Uranus Plush @ $34  This price is pretty fair, ending in 4 hours. I wasn't gonna go above $40 shipped for her, so have at it!

Uranus Lip Rod (from Twin Pack, Neptune availible too) @$102+ - I would've bidded on this, but I want the set and I'm guessing these will end around $300 each at least. Not in my price range.

New gets, probably only ones for awhile!

Not really expecting more anytime soon, so enjoy these pics of my new stuff and let me know how your hunts are going!

Just because I'm not active here doesn't mean I'm not active in the community. You guys can always drop me a line to Shindkrow at SMCollector or ShindoW at SailorMoonForum. :)

I am actively seeking two items, the 11" Irwin Doll Crescent Moon Wand and the Uranus Beauty Change doll.

Now, onto the gets!

You'll rarely get to see me update my small Glaive collection, so here's my new UFO catcher, probably my most wanted SM item, even more than Uranus stuff!

A few minor updates, Irwin dolls completed!

Recently the Sailor Moon merchandise site has added some necklaces and stuff, but no outer senshi stuff yet. Not that I'm expecting it well into the end of the first season of the anime at soonest. ^^

Thanks to a very kind person over at SMF I finally have the last Irwin doll! I still need the plushes though.

I managed to get the 6" dark blue box and the last UFO catcher I needed on Ebay earlier this week. My wallet truly hurts, I tell you. On average the dolls cost me $50 each, some not even CIB.

How have your collections been progressing? Drop me a note and let me know!

Want to buy: 11.5" Irwin Uranus "Yellow Box" MIB

I finally obtained the "ugly face" 6" doll of Uranus, so now I just need the Yellow Box 11.5" version. She has to be mint in the box / complete in the box!

Monday, July 8, 2013

New find

Just posting to say I obtained the last UFO Catcher I needed! (Still missing 2 of the Irwin plush though)

You can see the details on my Collection page!

Site Updates

I did a huge update to the Wish List section and added a new "Buying Locally" guide to the Tips page. I recieved this little gal today:

Irwin Week

Oh my God, I have had such amazing luck from the community and Ebay.

I managed to snag an ugly face, complete / loose Irwin 12" doll, the Irwin rubber strap, AND the original Irwin plush.

I've also snagged another Uranus pin, too!

I am in absolute heaven! I can't wait to share with you all!

A few tiny gets: heart pin and Kids figure

I got these 2 in the mail today!

I was a little bummed winning this pin because there was a Diana one as well I missed out on only because my phone was acting up. A shame, because the only other time I've seen that pin it's been $23+... these were BIN for $8 each...

On the bright (and wierd) side of things, the "Kids" figure is very different from that "bootleg keychain" I got... now I'm wondering if it's just shoddy official merchandise. Either way, always good to not have a duplicate in my collection. :D

Huge update with unboxing, new get!

So my FromJapan order arrived a few days ago and I'm happy to share it with you all:
I had recently had this but hadn't posted an updated pic yet!

So, originally I was gonna replace my figure, but I noticed that they're different! The one on the right is the original which was packaged by itself and no lip rod. On the left is the second version packed with Neptune and a mini lip rod. The eyes and stand are different!
Over a foot of Uranus awesomeness. The Excellent M Models are amazing! She's even taller than the Irwin 11.5", of course, on the left. Sailor Team doll is on the left.

I love this one, so cute and has the mini lip rod!

There's the bootleg keychain in the top middle, the orange hair figure on the right.

The keychain is new.

Also, here is the unboxing video:

Much to my amazement, the Excellent M Model figure is much much larger than I ever imagined. For $25 before shipping/fees I would say it was well worth it! I have a weak spot for figures like these, either very lightweight, hollow plastic or vinyl.

Don't expect a major update like this for awhile as I'm sure most of the items on my list are the expensive ones. I've seen a lot of the lip rods recently, but god, I can't shell out an entire summer paycheck or more for one. So, sadly, I'll wait on the sidelines!

Feel free to post with comments or suggestions and don't forget the subscribe via email!

Edit: So happy!!! Just won the lot of communicator watches on Ebay! If anyone's interested, I'm selling / trading Sailor Mars' Communicator Watch. Check out my trade section for details!

Irwin get! and late night find!

Saw her on Ebay and just had to get her! :) She's now deboxed with the matching Irwin keychain~

Ebay has been full of finds this week! Snagged this finger puppet / "Kids" style figure for $6!

Tuesday, June 4, 2013

Y!JP is on the way!

More loot

Got a few more items in the mail today.

Also, I got a new dresser, so my collection moved a little:
Comment and let me know what you think!

Irwin Update

Just managed to snag this off Ebay. I really like the Irwin SD figures.

All in all, she truly cost me around $30 shipped, but it was worth it in my opinion.

Saturday, June 1, 2013

Taobao Guide added~!

Just  added some useful links to the Tips page regarding Taobao. :D Good luck with your collections!

Collection pics, GE gets!

So I'm on my way~ I got all of the GE Uranus merchandise in today. Boy does it make my crappy paycheck feel better! But before that, I got the Saturn shirt from the Hot Topic sale. Unfortunetly it isn't my size just quite.. I can wear it but I'm worried it'll rip, so for now it's display only.

Now, onto the Uranus gets!!!
I recieved this spare stand from nitczn on LJ. Now my 11" Irwin Uranus can prepare for battle and not fall over!

The cel phone strap, button, and keychain! I like that all the packaging matches and the cel phone strap looks really nice in person.

I didn't really have anywhere else to hang the sticker... apartments limit the number of holes in the wall... sorry Jupiter!

Okay, so in almost every shot of this the background looks purple. In person, it's BLUE. I really love this scroll now that I've bought it and seen it in person. It's pretty!!

The wallscroll took the place of my Saturn one.

The vol 7 manga!! Not quite here yet.. I'm still on volume 4...

A cute chibi from the inside pages. :D

I hope you all enjoyed! Feel free to comment with questions or general feels! :D

Manga update

I got another small update today when I recieved my Sailor Moon Manga Vol. 7, which of course features Uranus. :3 I don't have pics but I'm sure you all already own it!! :D

Cards! and I finally finished my Y!JP spree. I think...

So somehow I ended up venturing into card territory. I don't usually collect cards for characters because there's often limited ones and far too many to count, but I just decided to snag these for now. I have another small batch on the way, too. I'm still working out what they are, but I think these may be the "soft prisms" I read about once.

Anyway, the pics! The bottom right one isn't a legit card, just a laminated photo. I think.

Also with my Yahoo Japan spree, I've gained the Uranus Hoop Keychain today. Right now I have no other pending orders except my Excellent Model before I can ship it all to me. However, I will give one last looksee before I decide to quit this time. :D I was kinda sad, seeing a Neptune Talisman for 700,000 Yen :( But it seems the Talismans and Lip Rods will run me around $700 each if I'm lucky. I don't have that kind of cash right now, sadly! :p Luckily, I don't really care for the Uranus Talisman. It's really too small to make any sense like the other 2. A full sized replica? Yeah, then we'll talk. :D

Oh, and PowerAnime finally got back to me. They're very nice once you get in contact with them! They have the rest of the GE merchandise set aside for me, so now I'm not missing anything except 1 shirt. :D Yay!! I can't wait.

More exciting collection updates!

First off, while having a tough time at work very early this morning, I found out I won this! I love figures with weapons and so Uranus with her wand was too cute to resist. I absolutely love this one from just seeing the pictures, even more than the dolls. I can't wait to get her here with her family! XD

After a long 9 hour shift, I came home to these!

Uranus fits so nicely on our futon. I snagged the 6" Irwin doll off of Bonanza for $35. I'm unboxing her though, because I'm getting the yellow ones CIB. The MINT box, only opened once by me, will be availible in my trades page. But back to the doll, I love that it easily holds both weapons. Simply awesome! I can even say I prefer her to the 11.5" version!

Sorry for the blurry photos. I'm taking them with my Vita since its the fastest option for uploading.. all wireless!

Here's how the lower half of my collection looks now. I had to make Dream Pocket Uranus a zombie because she has no stand and its next to impossible for her to stand up on her own. I'm in the process of finding something. Also, I don't have anywhere to put the Petit Soldier, so she's out on top for the time being, but she's going in a plastic doll case later this evening.

I'll keep you guys posted, although I probably won't obtain much more until my FromJapan package arrives, but I still have 2 auctions to go.

Excellent M, updated Wish List

Late last night (because I have no life) I found the Excellent M figure of Sailor Uranus on Rakuten. I bought her, so here's hoping she shows up at FromJapan!

The listing says she has her stand, so I assume she has no box, but I believe she doesn't come with anything else, except a numbered name plate, but I'm willing to let that go until I can get one at a decent price CIB. 

In the end I paid 2619 Yen, which with the awesome conversion rate, is around $26 USD before some shipping and later fees. I think this is great for the condition she's in.

I've also added a few items to a new section on my wish list "Other Sailor Moon Wish List". They include one of the GE keychains and StarS vol. 1 and 2 (Tokyopop manga).

Small update

Sharing another small update as more items trickle in.

I updated my collection and wish list pages as well as added a For Trade page. I also updated the Tips page with more sites and info.

I got these 2 in the mail this morning. My post office lady was so happy she didn't have to go up 3 flights anymore since we moved. :3

The large object on the left I got for $5.00 from Michaels. It's gonna make an awesome Lip Rod!

Once again the figure on the right is sealed... I'm debating deboxing all of my dolls but keeping them complete because I just got some shadow boxes from Michaels since they were 40% off. One was on Clearance. I'm super stoked to set it all up and show it to you, so I'll be updating this post tonight when it's all set up!


Left to Right: Sailor Team, Petit Soldier, Sailor Moon World, Dream Pocket, Irwin 2001 11"; Top: Sitting Shelf Plush, Keychain Plush, Card

Left to right, top to bottom: Romantic Heroine, Irwin Adventure Mini w/her Crescent Moon Wand, a card, a candy figure, Irwin keychain, Rooted Hair SD figure, and the Omake figure with space sword

Some finds on 5.20.13!

So, seeing as some of the Sailor Uranus merch is already becoming difficult to find, I went to my local Hot Topic to find this particular shirt... luckily not only was it on sale, but they had one in 2X (which is nice, considering its a Junior size IIRC) and I'm not exactly super thin. (Inspiration to work out!)

I was extremely glad to find it because online didn't have my size and it isn't even on HT right now.
I'm currently tracking down the wallscroll, pin, and keychain...

Also, while browsing Goodwill, I decided to get this for .70 and make a custom Talisman:
So all in all, a good day for finds. Still watching quite a few auctions, though!

My experience so far!

I copied my own article from here, to share with all of you!

I also wanted to give a shout out to my best friend Samus for adding her Uranus Irwin 12" doll to my collection. She's in good shape for a childhood toy, complete except for her stand. I am beyond thrilled! I really feel I was meant to own Uranus stuff. ^^


I don't usually write here but I really wanted to just share my experiences collecting Sailor Moon over the past 6 months.

My main collections are Sailor Uranus and the infamous Saturn. Both have outrageous prices for some of their merchandise (especially Saturn), but if you're patient and dilligent good deals pop up even now adays.

I don't want to know how much I've spent this past week thanks to a bonus check from work... but let's just say it looks stupid from anyone else's POV, close to a few hundred.

Here is my site with a collection and wishlist: (ext link)

The collection details when an item was purchased and for how much as well as details about the item.

My wish list isn't as detailed...

My best deals required me to ask around unusual places (Sailormoonforums, Serasell (now Sailormooncollectors) on Livejournal, Ebay, Yahoo Japan, and a new forum I discovered The Galaxia Cauldron, which is like a smaller SailorMoonForums.

Some of the best deals were:
Sailor Uranus Sailor Moon World (SMW) Doll for only $15. That was with shipping and after I purchased 3 figures including her for $45 shipped. I was so proud to get her at a good price. She's going to be a beautiful doll.

I shortly thereafter got a Dream Pocket Doll off Ebay for $48, which isn't too bad although it's about average. Current listings are closer to $80 something before shipping, though.

My most favorite deal wasn't even on Ebay or LJ or in the US. It was on Mandarake. Most figure collectors know of Mandarake because they offer fair prices based on condition and reliable service. I was desperately seeking Uranus stuff to no avail when I saw Sailor Saturn. Her Dream Pocket.

I mention on my website that usually all I hear about are Dream Pocket Dolls. They're super cute and the same molds as the SMW dolls. I can see why they're worth it!

Usually anything Sailor Saturn will for sure fetch you $150 for her larger items... for smaller stuff like keychains, I would say $30 is the norm. Mandarake had her Dream Pocket for $80 (well, 8,000 yen which is $80.95 according to my converter) before shipping. I have seen a few of her sell at that price among private sales among collectors but not on auction sites.

In fact, let me express my sadness to discover even some things like Uranus' Dream Pocket had starting bids of 130,00 Yen... And the next thing I'm about to tell you I understand but it still just makes me mad! A twin set of lip rods for 200,000 yen. That's not a typo, it's a starting bid. Albiet they were new, only opened to check for contents... but still! I hope I can spend something like $400 for one lip rod rather than the $700+ I see everywhere.

Nonetheless, I am waiting to hear back from Mandarake. Everything looks good so far!

I hope this post helped some of you or was just an entertaining read. If you need help collecting Uranus Merchandise, please check out my website linked above! It's not only a gallery, it's a resource for those on the endless hunt for Sailor Moon Merchandise.

Let's hope with the new anime we see lots more of new merchandise! GE / Hot Topic have already put out some merchandise... so get it while you can. Prices will only go up!
