Limited Edition Hayao Miyazaki Figurine: My Neighbor Miya-san

by


Last September the brilliant Studio Ghibli co-founder Hayao Miyazaki said that he’s retiring from making animated movies. As a tribute to his idol, artist Martin Hsu designed Miya-san, a 6″ figure of the genius behind modern classics such as Spirited Away, Howl’s Moving Castle and My Neighbor Totoro.

Bigshot Toyworks is going to produce 300 copies of Miya-san, and sales from the toy will be donated to an as yet unspecified charity.

You can pre-order Miya-san from Tenacious Toys for $95 (USD). Again the toy will only have 300 copies so you better order now if you want one. Happy retirement Miyazaki-sensei! Perhaps you can drop by your studio from time to time and give them ideas for new films.
