Hmm, seeing as how they're gonna make all of them eventually, I might have to just sit back and wait until sailor jupiter is released

I hope Bandai will still do the Sailor Moon chibi-arts figure they had previewed a few months ago. I'm much more interested in that one personally.

Normally I wouldn't worry, but Bandai's made prototypes of Chibi-arts figures before and then never released them. (like most of these: http://myfigurecollection.net/​item/​77763 ) I just don't want the same thing to happen and then I'd have missed my chance at collecting the Figuarts as well.

Didn't care one bit about the Moon figure, but Mercury is a definite buy for me. Just need a Mars and Venus one one.

Must own them all. Take my money Bandai, take it all!

Yep, I pre-ordered. Can't wait to see more reveals over the year. I grew up with those really ugly Sailor Moon barbies, and I would have damn well near killed someone for figure like this when I was about 12.

I pre-ordered Moon and will certainly end up with Mercury as well. I wonder just how far I'll be riding this slippery slope.

Why do people still say 'scout'?

I wonder if Mercury will come with any bonus expressions or items. Would love it if she came with her visor and Nintendo DS...er...computer.

Let's take 戦士 ("senshi") from 美少女戦士セーラームーン (Bishoujo Senshi see-raa-moon) title:

戦士 【せんし】 "senshi"
(n) soldier; combatant; warrior

... it simply doesn't fit the "image" when literally translate to English in dialogue.

They already say the word "soldier" in English, in the Japanese version.

What do you mean by "image"? The Soldiers are badass women who defend the earth.

I think "soldier" and "scout" are both fine.

According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, a scout is "one sent to obtain information; especially : a soldier, ship, or plane sent out in war to reconnoiter." It still references soldiers. And the girls do fight for justice and to protect the universe. Doesn't that make them soldiers? If not, then what are they?

Things shouldn't be this complicated, guys. =/
