She is the most powerful, after all. I wonder if this means the new anime is going to make it to the Infinity arc?

I have the Sailor Moon one. So far I've restrained myself from buying the other senshi, but I have to admit I'm tempted to get Saturn. I'm a sucker for characters with scythes.

So far I only have Sailor Moon. I would love to work on getting the others.

Yay! Hotaru! Very Happy

Venus looks like a deer caught in the headlights in that pic though. Confused It could just be the lighting and the angle of the shot though.

Is this figure from a different set than these? I assume so based on price. But if anyone knows, I'd be appreciative.

Those figures seem to be part of a set called "HGIF Sailor Moon Collection". They also seem to be solid, non-articulated pieces (i.e. they're a single piece of plastic in a pose, you can't really play with them).

Figuarts are much different. Figuarts are fully articulated (at the very least, head, neck, shoulders, elbows, wrists, waist, legs, knees, ankles, if not more), come with multiple hands for a variety of poses and items to hold, and usually come with props of some sort. As you can see in the images here, the Sailor Moon Figuart comes with the Moon Stick, the frisbee form of her Tiara, 3 alternate faces (winking, no tiara, and crying), as well as Luna. They're basically very high-end action figures, and are roughly the same size as standard US action figures, if not slightly bigger (the site I got the images from says 140mm).

Figuarts Zero, which are the other figures in the images, are closer to what you posted, but way more expensive. Figuarts Zero have the same high-quality sculpting that normal Figuarts have, but they are larger (190mm for Sailor Moon), and are statue/statuettes, in a solid pose (which is how they get the special effects with them and everything).

Wow, the Sailor Mercury Figuarts ZERO looks nice! I'll need to pick that one up.

And Figuarts ZERO isn't THAT expensive. The One Piece line were fairly cheap,

When I first saw stuff for the Sailor Moon Figuart Zero, it was running about $100 to the Figuart's $40.

This is a 100% preorder for me. I only bought Moon so far because I wanted to save up for the Outers.

OK, I guess I was wrong about Sailor Moon. I dunno why it's so expensive for a Figuarts ZERO line. I guess because it's a 1/8 scale but even so, that's WAY high. And Figuarts ZERO's motto was 'high quality for a low price.' The Sailor Moon figure clearly goes against that.
