Sailor Moon Villain Dolls

This might be the last post. When Sailor Moon came to the United States in 1995, one commentator on dolls said that Queen Beryl was a rare villain doll for girls merchandise but it wasn't as rare. Nowadays My Little Pony and Monster High have villains or rivals. Even in 1983, Jem had her villains the Misfits and She-Ra had her villains Catra and Double Face. Irwin released a number of dolls but stopped at Sailor Moon S even though the English-dubbed Anime continued until Super S.
