Because there's something about "stick", "toy" and "grown-ups".

Yup, we're normal persons alright Laughing

Im sure there will be some who use it more than just a regular toy. It must be satisfying to be a sailor moon fan Laughing

I must be the only one here who thought nothing dirty. The weapon is called the 'moon stick'.

Bandai, Bandai, Bandai... You guys really know how to push all my right buttons, don't you?

Prop replica? LEDs? Voiced? As a self-proclaimed replica maniac, please take all my money right now. Also, what about the changers for the other Senshi? If I remember correctly, the originals were some form of make-up and didn't have electronics. Hopefully, they'll be re-releasing the other toys, like the Compact.

I had Hello Kitty flashbacks when I read that title.

I think this is a great fan item. 89 dollars is nothing compared to how much this stuff usually goes for. Shipping on the other hand...

So, they're doing a weapon line like the Complete Selection Modicication line that they do for Kamen Rider Belts. It'll be interesting to see if they expand it to other anime and Tokusatsu series, or just do Sailor Moon.

I think ANN needs to change this title! I was thinking the same thing and nothing about this toy suggests it's just for grown-ups. Anyone could buy this if they had the money.

"Toy for Grown-Ups" is in the headline in both the Japanese Netlab article and Bandai's press release. Bandai is making a big push for its Proplica brand and emphasizing its target audience.
