Hayao Miyazaki Makes For the Most Cheerful Figurine Ever

Before you scoff at Martin Hsu and Bigshot Toyworks’ 6-inch Hayao Miyazaki figurine costing $95, note that proceeds are being donated to earthquake and tsunami relief organization Karakuwa-Maru. Also, just think of the therapy bills you’ll save by having his cheerful presence on your desk at all times.

    I’m not really a figurine person, nor do I have ninety-five dollars to spend on knickknacks, but I can’t pretend I wasn’t tempted.

    Now, if he were scowling and chain-smoking, frugality be damned; I’d buy the thing today.

    Sound I made:

    “Oh, I WAAAANN–oh.”

    Man, that would be the perfect thing in any studio, little precious monument to hard work, dedication, and creative excellence. But yeah, even I can’t justify spending $100, the way things are. But it is nice that they’re doing a charity fund with it.

    they look adorable, but isn’t Miyazaki infamous for being a bit of a grump?
