EXPIRED Deal Alert – Sailor Moon R Cutie Moon Rod Proplica Only $57.45 – 43% Off!

While I usually post manga-related deals, this is too hot not to share!

Sailor Moon R Proplica

Right now at Amazon, the Sailor Moon R Cutie Moon Rod Proplica is only $57.45, 43% off the MSRP of $100. I don’t know how long the price will last, but since Amazon’s prices fluctuate constantly, I would hurry if you’re interested.

The next lowest price for this item is about $70 shipped on eBay. All the lowest buy-it-now prices on eBay just dropped today, in line with Amazon’s sudden price drop. I know that’s not a coincidence. Previously, the cheapest one has ever gone was about $68 for a used/open box one.

The Proplica line is Bandai’s premium prop and replica items of Sailor Moon wands and brooches. Featuring sounds and voices directly from the anime as well as Moon Kingdom base, this is a beautiful item for cosplayers or collectors. If you want to learn more about it, Sailor Moon Collectibles has a nice video review.

Don’t forget to order through Amazon Smile to make a donation to the charity of your choice!
