S.H. Figuarts ‘Sailor Mercury’ unpainted prototype spotted in the wild

Looks like Sailor Moon won’t be the only one from her series getting Tamashii Nations’s S.H. Figuarts treatment after all!

When the figure was announced earlier this year as part of the plans to celebrate the franchise’s 20th anniversary series, there was no word on if the Sailor Moon release would be a one-off, or if the rest of the cast might be made as well.

There’s still no official announcement on this matter, but if you’re a fan of Sailor Mercury, there’s hope! An S.H. Figuarts unpainted protytpe of Sailor Mercury has been spotted in Akihabara, alongside Sailor Moon!

If you happen to be in the area, the store in question where you can check out the exhibit yourself is Sofmap (one of the several branches in Akihabara, anyway).

Pre-orders for S.H. Figuarts Sailor Moon started earlier this week. The actual figure itself will begin shipping out from Japan on August 13.

If you’re interested but still on the fence if this is one figure you need to add to your collection (after all, they haven’t announced if the other Sailor friends would make it), maybe this video (and pictures from AmiAmi) demonstrating all the features of the S.H. Figuarts Sailor Moon might help you decide:
