Support Sailor Moon
by Buying Sailor Moon Goodies!!
We held onto this story for a Sailor Stars campaign but it never happened.
Heavy Cat Awaits Deal|
It took a lot longer for this company to find out if they could make a deal to produce a video game.
No Calendars For You!|
(If you were a fan of the anime version.) Toei funnels all your money to their new, live action television series.
Calendars for 2003|
We first reported DiC's version and later (in January 2003) Toei's version--which then immediately sold out. (Next time we'll just keep our big mouths shut!) (DiC has since moved so please don't send any more letters to the address shown.)
Proposed Video Game|
Heavy Cat Multimedia asks fans for input for a proposed video game.
Pinball Game & Bandai's Website|
After posting our story about a cheap, handheld pinball game we received an unconfirmed report from a fan saying that you could actually buy one of these! And, we also wrote about the pain of being a Japanese fan.
Irwin Toys Drops
Sailor Saturn abandoned in the U.S., we suggest the return of Bandai and DiC seeks out action figure companies.
YTV & Irwin's Co-op
With U.S. sales way down, Irwin tried to boost the Canadian market.
Toei created new art and DiC improved its version.
We track the announced opening, delayed festivities and the "Ikuni" connection with a new anime store opening in North America.
Buy The Luna
We encouraged fans to buy this new, gender-free toy.
CCG Wins Origins
The Guardians Of Order won Best Trading Card Game of 2000.
Irwin's New &
They looked so much better plus they previewed the Wicked Lady & Sailor Mini-moon set!
WB Stores To Close|
One of our favorite chains called it quits but we briefly reviewed some replacements.
Toy Roundup 2|
Again, a lot of different developments including the sale of the Irwin Toy company, websites reviewed, plus one final note concerning the WB Stores.
New UFO Dolls|
Banpresto introduced new mini-plushies that were only available in Japan. Today you can find them at places like ebay.
WB Stores Carry
The chain added the Guardians Of Order cards for the Christmas season.
Toei reintroduced a Sailormoon Calendar for 2001.
WB Stores Add Sailor
With Pokemon on the decline, the chain looked to Toonami merchandise to lift sales.
Collectible Card Game
How the game works and why we like it so much!
An update on why the game wasn't coming out as originally announced.
Button Men &
Character Diaries Review|
These new products underwent vigourous testing in our super-secret underground SOS labs & proving grounds.
Irwin To Improve
After receiving A LOT of fan input (see the "Toy Roundup" below), DiC & Irwin work together on manufacturing a more accurate doll line. We also bid farewell to Scott Irwin.
Game To Be Released|
And we also covered the release of the Button Men game & Character Diary books.
The Best Of Anime
Rhino Records includes Sailor Moon on an anime compilation CD (and how we didn't get a special mention)!
There was so much increased activity concerning toys we thought it best to combine all the different developments into one report (which we wrote at the request of Scott Irwin). Also, discreetly mentioned within the report, was a request from DiC Entertainment asking for fan input concerning future merchandise.
We saved the page from the Rhino Records website detailing this 2nd Sailor Moon CD.
As far as we know this tasty treat was manufactured only once in 1999, so if you should come across one now think twice before taking that first big bite!
Our Irwin procott fails (but a few months later our letter writing campaign to other companies would succeed) plus some non-toy developments.
Role-Playing Game and
Resource Book Review|
A "required buy" for every fan! One of the best products we've ever had the pleasure to review!
Yep, this was not some elaborate prank. They actually made this stuff once and fans would buy it! And some would even eat it! Are there no limits to child abuse?!
Coast To Coast
These watches featured characters from the "Sailormoon S" series even though there was still no agreement to dub those episodes.
We urged fans to buy toys from Irwin to encourage the company to pay for the dubbing of "Sailormoon S."
SMS Toy Rights|
Although there was no deal to dub "Sailormoon S" yet, the company optioned the right to make dolls of the characters from the series--starting lots of false rumors.
Irwin Pays For
Irwin Toys decided to put up the money to get the final 17 episodes of "Sailormoon R" dubbed.
At the start of the campaign we compiled all the merchandise we could find onto this one page until it became far too big for most computers at the time. (RAM was limited and expensive in those days!) So we started to make separate pages for each new goodie (all listed above)! Meanwhile, most of these products are no longer available but they're still fun to search for on ebay and other such sites!
