Shi-Shi the Tiny Guardian Blue 4-inch sofubi figure by Bigshot Toys SOLD OUT
New from Bigshot Toys is this sofubi (soft vinyl from Japan) 4-inch tall Shi-Shi the Tiny Guardian figure.
With inspiration drawn from the legendary and formidable guardian lion statues that are ubiquitous across China, Bigshot Toys Creative Director Klim K. pondered the backstory of the little baby cub traditionally depicted under the mother lion’s paw. “Who is that cub?” Klim wondered, “that tiny guardian growing up under the watchful eye of her majestic parents?”
Klim and his team decided to explore that story, enchanted by the subtle nuances of the family dynamic of guardian lions. What is it like for her as she grows and matures, coming to terms with the powerful magic of her lineage? What happens as she explores her surroundings and learns about what it means to be a guardian and protector at the gates?
For Five Points 2019, Tenacious Toys gets to play host to the third color of Shi-Shi (the first two were a translucent Plum and a Sakura pink released at Thailand Toy Expo).
The Tenacious exclusive blue sofubi Shi-Shi is limited to 30 pieces, and priced at $45 each. The early Shi-Shi releases are just a taste of the Tiny Guardian as Bigshot Toys gears up to launch a Kickstarter in June to fund the full lineup of Shi-Shi collectibles, which will include PVC mini figures and larger deluxe resin statues in addition to more color variants of the sofubis.
