Sorry to make another post so soon, but as I figure probably the big Chibiusa plush is out of my reach, I suppose I should focus on the ones much easier to get. I can always get a second plush later if it turns out I have some amazing stroke of luck with the big one. ;)
But I'm having a hard time deciding between Great Eastern and Bandai's new plushies. I don't really like how disproportionate they both are, but it looks better with Chibiusa than it would with an older character.
I kind of like Bandai's expression better, which is a surprise to me since I usually don't care for Bandai expressions. I suppose on Chibiusa it's fine, since my main complaint with Bandai is that everyone looks too young.
But I kind of like Great Eastern's hair better, even though it's not as accurate a shade. It looks rather amazingly soft. I don't like, however, that the hair clip things look like they're just decals.
So does anyone own one or both of these plushies and can give further recommendation for which they think is better? Also, are either of them available in retail stores like F.Y.E.? It's always nice to see in person before buying.http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_2?url=search-alias%3Dtoys-and-games&field-keywords=Sailor%20Chibi%20Moon%20plush
