Tamashii Nations conceived of their Proplica series as a high-end line created to pay homage to legendary on-screen offerings in the form of realistic prop renderings. Appropriately enough, Proplica (a fusion of “prop” and “replica”) achieved success with their light-up Moon Stick, and for their second big hit, they’ve come up with a gorgeous remake of the Cutie Moon Rod.
Fashioned from a combination of metal and durable plastic, the Moon Rod lives 20 years after its original imagination. The multicolored, sparkling crown jewel at the top LED lights trickling down along the side recall the Moon Princess Halation attack and other scenes from the renowned anime. The Moon Rod measures over 17 inches in length and can play sound effects and catchphrases from the series. A display inspired by the Moon Castle finishes off this amazing display toy. It’s necessary for the hardcore Sailor Moon aficionado or aficionada. Preorder it now for January shipping.
