Submit Bootlegged Sailor Moon Merch

Looking through your blog, I saw you had “Sailor Moon Dressables Figures Six Complete” but then I remembered I had all of them as well.  I remember buying them at a dollar tree when I was a kid.

Anyway, I was looking at them and on the back I noticed something…

Sailor Moon’s face looks a little off…

Sailor Moon star necklace

Hey, I have an answer to the question about the star necklace someone submitted to you about a month ago. It actually is official, sold through a subline of Bandai called “Yutaka”. The line was used to create very small or cheap versions of DX toys that Bandai sold, from various franchises. A lot of their stuff looked and felt like bootlegs. You can tell if it’s Yutaka from the logo in the bottom right corner, that has a “y” in the square. Around 2003 or so, the name of the line changed to “Popy” and has the same logo, except with a capital “P” instead. I think the line ended a couple of years after the name was changed. 

This is a great idea to use! If you have a Sailor Moon bootleg,  then paint her into super/eternal sailor moon!

Sailorestechan and Candor both submitted this collection to me, assuming they are bootlegs. While they are very very cute, their colors seem a little off. The fact that they have the correct amount of stripes on their collars also makes it seem like it might be official. What do you guys think?

So guys! We got some stuff out of our storage unit the other day. I opened one box and found some old toys from when I lived in Canada (circa 2000). Including some sailor moon stuff. It’s a bit beat up from sitting in a box for 15 years. But it’s still cute. This little figurine is kinda cute actually.

Oh my God! You have this! You have the thing!

I have literally never seen anyone else with this figurine before. I was wondering if I had some kind of phantom merchandise. It’s so cool to finally see another one after all these years!

I have at least a similar figurine… (90ies, Germany). But the hair and arms are off. :I It looks like a very cheap bootleg, I don’t even remember where I got it from. But so cool to see others having it, too!!!

I still wonder who the second girl/ Senshi is, though….


The arms can swivel, and they pop off if you’re not careful. It looks like you have the same figure, only they got disarmed at some point, and the pigtails snapped off…
That Naruami is a thing of beauty, though.

I made a quick thing because I couldn’t resist… The Naru-Ami girl… May she be the Sailor Earth we all did (not) wait for?? *gasps*

How about a much-loved Sailor Mars watch?

I don’t remember it, but it clearly wore the shit out of it. Looks like clasp broke off, which was probably the sad end of wearing it.

I don’t know if Rei was always pointing at me in a disapproving manner, but if not, it probably happened after I let the broken clasp stop me.


A Sailor Moon plush toy sold on a Dutch website Marktplaats.
I am not 100 percent sure its a bootleg since it doesn’t look that horrible. But something about it..is off.

I do believe it’s a bootleg, however it’s a very cute one.

This was a set of figurines that was being sold on eBay. Dat Black Lady though…
(Submitter cannot tell if they’re real or bootleg, but the anatomies and paintjobs are questionable.)

I’m not sure if this is a bootleg, but I was told it may be. I bought it a few years ago on Ebay just because I thought it was pretty and it was cheap.

  

I know nothing about it. :/

I’m not actually an authority on official Sailor Moon merchandise, despite the theme of the blog. Does anyone know anything about this?

Pictures of itty bitty Sailor Moon fans are absolutely my favorite part of ANN’s “What Does Sailor Moon Mean to You?” contest. Now I just wish I had photographic evidence of me dressing up as Sailor Jupiter as a kid, but unfortunately I don’t! If anyone has nostalgic moonie pictures, you should reblog with yours, because I love seeing them :)
