Childhood dreams come true: My SailorMoon Collection on Collectors Hive!

Petit Chara line – Sailor Moon

Sailormoon has been, and will always be my childhood superhero. I can relate most by the main protagonist, Usagi Tsukino (Serena Tsukino in english dub, Bunny Tsukino in tagalog dub, 1st and 2nd season) is the typical underdog superhero with a big heart who saves the world from the forces of evil. It has spanned for 5 seasons, 200 episodes and 5 OVAs, featuring stories and adventures of 10 girls, each with different personas who I really love and adore.

Growing up, I’ve been eyeing on having my own collection of SailorMoon merchandise. It’s been my blog’s namesake for years and undeniably by childhood superhero even until today.

The first official merch that I bought was a plushie from Ebay, then gashapons next, and now moving on with having the vast selection of petit charas, twinkle dolly, qposkets, ochatomo, atsumete, GirlsMemories and the entire collection of the FunkoPop – SailorMoon line . I even purchased fan-made bootlegs that are affordable and uniquely designed. Next thing I knew, I’ve been purchasing Moonie collectibles that are way beyond my budget.

The recent purchase that I made was a limited edition miniaturely tablet Moon Castle stand that I bought for almost 5000 pesos! As for the massive collectors, it’s still within the usual budget, for the proplica line costs 5-10k. I’ve been eyeing on having the proplica version of the star locket and the moon stick soon! :D Now in celebration of its 25th year, (SM started in 1993) their line of merchandise just got bigger! They just released their new anime series based on the manga entitled Sailor Moon Crystal (a must watch – the story is entirely different from the 90′s anime series), they had the real-life wands from Proplica, general merchandise goods, and they even had Sailormoon as one of the official mascots in the Tokyo 2020 Olympics! That also means I need more room for my babies, more budget to get them all, and more happiness for the Moonie in me. 

 

If you follow me on Instagram, I always post on the things that I bought online and through my fellow anime collector friends. Looking at my collection, playing with them makes me motivated to do more and to be inspired by the character and its creator. My babies who are with me at the office makes me calm amidst the chaos that is called work! So I don’t mind having tons of work being lined up, as long as my toys are with me always. 

The ever bashful Princess Serenity, awww!

Thankful that Facebook has helped me (alot!!!) in searching for leads in where to find authentic SailorMoon merch, I’m still searching for an online venue (aside from IG) for my humble Moonie collection for all the world to see. 

Collectors Hive – an online hub for collectors and geeks

Collector’s Hive is the new online haven for me and to all collectors who wants to keep in touch with other collectors with the same interest. I stumbled on it via google play at first, but it is more user-friendly when accessed online IMO!

website

Collectors on different genres can upload and share their interest and collections, meet fellow collectors as well and even share their opinions and feedback on other collectors! Every person has different interest that will surely capture everyone’s attention. Definitely worth a visit!

I’ve yet to explore the website to utilize fully, but at first I find it tricky but interactive for a website. Looking forward to see more changes in Collective Hive, especially on their Android app!

The Hobbies and Collectibles Convention 2017 quick review

From Facebook

I was able to drop by to the Hobbies and Collectibles Convention 2017 last January 14, 2017 while accompanying my boyfriend and his office colleague to one of the service centers in Megamall. Good thing that they’re also geeks at heart and they are easy to talk to when it comes to otaku stuff and toys in general.

Minako Chan! Got this baby from the auction!

They had an auction for different plushies for everyone! all the bids started at 1 peso going up (depends on the plushie) I was able to get a Minako Aino plushie for 90 pesos and a dissected fish plushie (lol!) for 50 pesos, I think it’s a steal! :D

Pinoy lego! Batang 90′s can relate!

Before we went home, cosplayers are starting to line up for the cosplay competition. One thing I noticed is that most of them playing as their favorite DC and Marvel characters. I saw someone also playing as a character from Final Fantasy that I forgot to take a “stalker shot” lol! :P

The event was indeed small but we had fun because of the Sailormoon plushies that I scored during the auction, and because of the boys who went with me. They also had fun because of the gunplas that are on sale and the magnificent toy display.

The venue is small for the event I think, and the had limited stalls for food. But the good thing about the event is that despite the limited space, you can still move around. The entrace for the convention is also reasonable for 100 pesos.

Here’s some of the pics from the convention!

Mojo Jojo!

The Powerpuff Girls merchandise were also available during the launch. The range of toys are exclusively distributed by Richprime Global inc. and is now available at leading toy stores and department stores nationwide.
