Groove has finally announced the details for the upcoming release of the latest doll in the super popular Sailor Moon x Pullip line Black Lady via their blog. Black Lady will be the fifteenth doll released as a part of the Sailor Moon x Pullip line but she will be the first villain released as a part of the line. It is not known at this time if she will end up being the only villain doll released or not, the villains always had interesting character designs so I’m kind of hoping that if they do release more dolls in this line they’ll be villains.
Black Lady is set to have a December release in Japan (she’ll be released one month later here in the states) and has a MSRP of 18000 yen.
Wicked Lady’s character design transitioned really nicely into doll form. The Pullip is a very faithful adaption of Wicked Lady’s design. Even her jewelry has been faithfully recreated.
I always kind of have a soft spot for villains, they always seem to have the more interesting character designs and Black Lady is no exception. She looks very dramatic in a long black gown with a scandalously high slit and an organdy shirt, as well as a shawl. I like the little bit of blue in her underskirt it provides an interesting contrast and pop of color.
View of her dress/hair from behind. I’m really kind of impressed what a marvel of engineering her wig is, I hope it looks that great on the production dolls.
I love her face up! She truly is a wicked lady especially with that dark dramatic eye make up and the black crescent moon on her forehead. I like that their lips are painted in such a way that it looks like she is frowning slightly. I love her anime style eye chips.
Bandai’s shop once again has an exclusive item available only to those who preorder from them, Black Lady comes with Luna P. Normally the exclusive version has a slightly more elevated MSRP than the standard version but Black Lady has the same the MSRP this time around. This version of Luna P is a little different than the previous version of Luna P that came with the exclusive version of Sailor Chibi Moon it too has been corrupted and has the sign of the dark moon clan on it’s forehead.
