It Came From the Toy Chest: Proto Sailor Moon but not Sailor Moon

Of course I am talking about Sailor V's True Form as Sailor Venus... Must resist Urge from buying Sailor V...

The Articulation on ALL 5 Senshi is mostly the same. I point this out now since this part may be copied and pasted on each of the Senshi Reviews, but each Senshi has some Articulation that is Specifically made for Each. The range Of Articulation, particularly on the arms is astounding. Even though the Senshi have skirts, they have slits and the skirt overlaps the front and back to hide the slits. (I assume this was what the 4 Horsemen were trying to emulate for MOTUC, but Mattel design, in their ass backwards ways didn't understand)

She can easily pull off most of the key poses from the Anime. (Since this one is based on the Anime.) As with all Figuarts figures, some poses require the use of a stand... (Especially with the tiny feet on heels that the Senshi have)

Now specifically for Sailor Venus, her hair has sections with a ball joint that allows you to have it a bit more flared out as if it was partially wind blown. Kinda like Sailor Mars.

Paint and Sculpt:

 3 Extra Faceplates
1 Extra Hairpiece with Sailor V Glasses
1 Extra hand with Sailor V Glasses attached
8 Extra Hands

I'm a bit sad that the Venus Love Me Chain isn't among the accessories. I mean, this isn't a generic effect like Fire, or Lightning that I could use.  Other than that, she HAS TONS OF STUFF!!

Venus gets a 5.0 as her final score and it's a bit difficult to see why she deserves less than that.
