So some of the hands snap on with ease, while others will not go on at all but then thing is one of the hands i have put on her when i first got here :eeklez: so is anyone else having issue with snapping some of the hands on?? i compared the hands the snap on with easy and the ones that do not and the hole is SMALLER on the ones they do not snap on at all.

Have you tried putting one hand onto another arm? It might fit onto one arm but not on the other. Which figuart is this? I only have Usagi and have yet to get my hands on the others.

i only have Usagi too, I'll try putting it on the other arm.. i think i tired for a short bit, but i do know if fit on atlest one arm i have a image of it on her, that i took when i first got it :tongue:

edit: okay so, i compared the hand for holding the wand, which is the one I'm having issese with, the hole on it is a bit smaller the some of the other hands, so i had to almost force it to fit, but it can not move around with out it falling off. :tongue: so as of now it's on but it dose not fit right :neutral:

I have all 3 available so far. It varies from figure to figure. Some people have issues with different body parts fitting more loosely/tightly than others. i.e. my Mercury's left leg will always pop off if you try to lift it too high, and some of the hands will fall off when I'm posing them if I'm not careful. It was really hard to get Mercury and Moon's bangs off the first couple of times. That kind of thing. Everything should fit if you work at it, though (as long as it's not one of the bootlegs, I don't know about those). I'm just careful when posing them

the issue with Figuarts Sailor Moon is there were alot of problems with certain ones some have gotten her bangs broken a few have had like arms being too stiff or other issues.My main concern are her pegs for the hands the peg is very delicate compared to normal S.H.Figuarts and they do come off very loose sometimes.Mercury atm I have had no issues with but with Mars shes top heavy thats the big complain I have.The line seem to have improved abit more after the release of Moon but just be warned that when you first get the figure the head swamping is the hardest part for the first few times but gets easier after that.

Have there been any bootlegs of the figarts yet? :confused: (If so, I'd like to see some photos of them.)

Yep, there are bootlegs of both Moon and Mercury. Here's a good review of the product. The bootleg is at the bottom, with photos. It's obvious as day.

Thx for the info :) - the bootleggers are so efficient these days, even in producing this relatively more complicated product. :oh: Also, as a bootleg, its production quality, while still defective here & there, has also greatly improved from those in the past. :cool:

Maybe someday such bootlegs would become indistinguishable from the genuine one by the non-expert eyes, like fakes of masterpiece paintings or high-quality faked banknotes. :ohmy:

dont worry the hands on my moon are on and off as well like the right side will be good and tight but the left side a couple of the hands will be loose and look like they will fall any min.but I have not had any problems displaying them for a good 2 months maybe more.as of now I think the hardest one to display is Mars cause of how they designed her hair.

I think the hair might need an extra support on its own.

While I do understand them wanting to be very detailed her hair does need its own support.I would have hoped they had an xtra stage piece for her hair alone or make it that it was able to come off and replace with a different style of it.I just hope Venus wont be too bad since they both are almost identical mold wise

You can buy a suitable one for that purpose at hobby shops, tho. :)

Here's my quick look at the Sailor Mercury figure.

I have Sailor Mars as well. Both of these figures gave me no problem unlike Sailor Moon where her arms just want to break off all the time.

Here is my quick look at Sailor Mars.

I'm not a fan of the sailor Mars figure because of the hair issue, myself. Don't get me wrong, I love her.. It's just that when planning out her hair and the stand... It's almost like two different people put in two different ideas and no one bothered to even give it a look over before submitting. :dead:

Hmm. I am becoming more and more glad I didn't buy Mars, Mercury, and Venus now. I am happy with just Sailor Moon. :love:

When is Jupiter coming out? Does anyone know?

I'm sorry! The rest of my post was eaten.

She was cut, because word is she is being remodeled. Before, she was "quite boring". Regardless, she has the least accessories of all senshi, but her antenna was bot included. I am they're not settling on just "whatever". Her release date- actually she herself, has not been announced since. So, we'll see! Hopefully something soon. :)

Ahhhhh. So, they are going to make a "new" and "improved" Jupiter mold? I didn't think she looked "quite boring" but that's just one fan's opinion.
