Continuing with my Sailor Scouts team completion is Sailor Mars. Fun fact: my childhood nickname was Mars, so I've always liked things Martian related. Since this is my fourth Sailor Moon figure, there aren't any surprises. She's got the same articulation (including a couple extra flaps of hair that can swivel out to make it look more windblown), extra faces, and extra hands. Rei's unique accessory is the piece of paper with kanji on it that she uses in magical attacks, with a special hand to hold it. I've seen that sort of thing in multiple anime, so I'm assuming it's one of those cultural artifacts that I'm not privy to as a foreign observer.
