Bigshot Toyworks and Martin Hsu have been working together to create this figure tribute to Hayao Miyazak, titled "Miya-san". Hayao Miyazaki is a legendary Japanese director, artist and cinematic visionary. Miyazaki's filmography spans decades and features such iconic films as Princess Mononoke, My Neighbor Totoro, Spirited Away and Ponyo among many, many others.

Standing at 6" tall, this resin production figure is limited to 300 pieces and will be packaged in a gift box. Priced at $95, proceeds from the figure will go to a yet-undetermined charity chosen by Martin Hsu and Klim Kozinevich. I find very strange not to announce the charity. If there is no charity already in mind, why make it a charity toy? I usually find charity projects go into production with a charity already in mind, not as an afterthought. I think its great that proceeds are being donated, but knowing who to is an important part of supporting sales for projects like this.

Pre-orders go live on Jan 21st at 2pm est on Tenacious Toys Website with a projected ship date of April 2014.
