An Extremely Rare Super Sailor Moon Baby Face Doll from BANDAI Found on Auction!

This might be one of the greatest finds of Sailor Moon toys I’ve shown on this blog. If you are a Sailor Moon collector, you’ve got to check this out!

BANDAI’s so-called Sailor Moon Baby Face Doll (Japanese name: いつもなかよしスーパーセーラームーン) is extremely rare, one of the most sought-after Sailor Moon dolls sold during the time of its TV run.



Around the same time this was released, there was also Sailor Chibi Moon version of the same baby face doll line. You see Chibi Moon version occasionally on Yahoo Japan Auction, but this, Super Sailor Moon version is extremely difficult to find even in Japan. And especially when it’s in a near mint condition like this, with an original packaging, it must be a collector’s dream come true. The same doll was recently sold for 70,000 yen just for the doll itself, without the box!

The current highest bid is only 35,000 yen. Two more days till the auction ends!
Good luck bidding!

Sylvanian Families in Japanese Fundoshi Undergarments Are Somehow Extremely Fitting

Sylvanian Families is a line of animal figures and dollhouses originally sold by Epoch in 1980’s. Later it was distributed and became widely popular worldwide. I’m sure you’ve seen the adorable critters made of flocked plastic living in traditional western-style housings.

They are such adorable creatures!
However, there’s been some odd trend around Japanese Twitter community recently.
Here are cute Silvanian Families… 

Photo Source: Sylvanian Families 

Add Japanese “fundoshi,” a traditional Japanese undergarment…



“Let’s Partyyyyyyyy!”

Photo Source: Wikipedia

By just adding a single piece of garment, Sylvanian Families suddenly turn into exciting (possibly drunken) Japanese matsuri (festival) participants. They give us totally different impressions than when they are in their usual, western-tyle outfits that we are all familiar with.


“Is this where the party’s going on?”


Bunny Cop: “Where is the party!?”


“Everyone here? Let’s wait for the village chief and start the fundoshi festival!”


 Beavers: “Can’t hear your voice! Louder!”


“My underwear’s ripped! I have too much energy.”

(And a very drunk mole passed out on the sidewalk…)


“My family only has one grown man who can participate in the matsuri. Good luck Dad!”



Duck Mom: “Wh…who are you? Why are you in my house!?”
Ducklings: “Whoa… you guys are so cool!”


“Heave-ho! Heave-ho!”


“You two should get ready after the supper too!”


Beaver: “Are you ready for matsuri?”


“Fundoshi matsuri is all over Twitter!”


“Fundoshi is…so romantic.”
“Hahaha, you just found that out?”


“Here comes the mikoshi!”
“Heave-ho! Heave-ho!”

*Mikoshi is a portable Shinto shrine that four selected men (or women sometimes) carry to parade around the town during a matsuri.


 “Keep it up guys!”




“Great job, gentlemen!”

“Let’s celebrate! Eat! Drink!”

Meanwhile…the mole family is completely wasted.

Photo Source: @kusomushimogura Twitter

“See what I can do! Hahaha”
“Hey! Keep your undies on!”

They are having so much fun! I’d never thoguht Sylvanian Families would look so good in fundoshi, but apparently they do. To follow all photos of fundoshi matsuri, check out the hashtag #ふんどし祭り.

Hatsune Miku x Louis Vuitton Collaboration Figures Getting Attention on YJ auctions

If you are a passionate Miku fan, you might have heard about the life-size Hatsune Miku figure dressed in Louis Vuitton outfit that showed up at Bunkamura Orchard Hall on May 22nd. It was made in collaboration with Hatsune Miku’s opera, “THE END.”


Life-size, 158cm tall Hatsune Miku figure displayed at the reception event of THE END

Although there wasn’t any public announcement, a limited number of miniature replicas of this Louis Vuitton x Hatsune Miku figure were given to guests who attended the reception, and the event was for invitation only.

Therefore these figures are extremely rare! We’ve found a few of them appearing on YJ auction recently.

Here is one Hatsune Miku x Louis Vuitton “THE END” Limited Edition Figure listed on Auction right now.


1/6-scale Miku figure and a catalogue booklet for THE END.lousivuitton-hatsunemiku5

Here’s some more pictures from previous auctions to show you more details.
