    Sailor Moon Event Shirts and MORE Return to NYCC!

    Good afternoon – have we got some great news for ya!

    By popular request, we are able to bring back the very special Sailor Moon event T-Shirts (as seen at Otakon) and they are heading to New York Comic-Con! Not only that, but remember that Sailor Moon shirts poll from a while ago? The most popular color combination and ink finish won, Pink on medium grey. Check out the lovely results! (click for full size image)



    Look at all that ***GLITTER*** ! These shirts will only be available at New York Comic-Con only while supplies last. We have more than we brought for Otakon, but supplies will be limited. Be sure to come by the VIZ booth early to ensure you get yours. Mens’ AND Ladies’ sizes S-M-L-XL-2XL are available for only $15.00. They run a bit on the snuggly side, so we recommend you get a size up unless you like your shirts super tight.

    That’s not all! We have another awesome bit of news after the jump!

    When our friends at Right Stuf listed the special pre-order for Sailor Moon Set 1 with the fancy brooch coin gift with purchase, we were shocked and amazed how quickly they sold out! Now, you can still got your copy of the Limited Edition set for a great low price from them, but the coins are long gone….

    Unless you are going to New York Comic-Con and preorder at the VIZ booth!


    In partnership with Right Stuf, and while supplies last, preorder the Limited Edition Set 1 of Sailor Moon at our special kiosk and get your coin instantly! Right Stuf will ship your order out as soon as the product comes in (11/11/14), but we will give you your coin, lovingly wrapped in pink organza and glitter tissue, on the spot right at New York Comic-Con!


    We can’t stress enough- these are a very special item and very likely the last chance you’ll get at snagging the Season 1 brooch coins! There was a small overage at the coin manufacturer, so we’re offering them to fans who come preorder in person with us. The Organza wrapping is exclusive to conventions, though. Our little hands can only wrap up so many before they get sore!

    In the Name of the Moon…Come join us at New York Comic-Con and fight for love and for justice with these exclusive goodies!

          I believe they have hinted on manga announcements earlier this summer. Beyond that, it wouldn't' surprise if they are no new anime announcements.
