Bigshot Toys has launched a new Kickstarter for their newest project: Shi-Shi the Tiny Guardian, a character sure to melt your heart and capture your imagination.
It’s likely you’ve seen Shi-Shi before. Her parents stand at the gates of the Forbidden City in China, steadfast stone lion protectors for generations. Under her mother’s great paw she lies, awaiting her calling to explore her powers, and honing them against the darkness lurking around every corner. Like the brave Guardians before her, Shi-Shi is a natural born protector with an ingrained sense of justice. One so tiny must train hard to take on such a monumental responsibility… but great things have small beginnings.
Shi-Shi’s amazing ability to imitate the elements she encounters turns out to be the perfect excuse for a wide array of colorways for the toy line. Kickstarter backers will be able to choose from blind boxed mini figures in 4 different color ways and two different sculpts, 4 inch Sofubi Figures in 7 different colors (including a Gold Glitter edition EXCLUSIVE to this Kickstarter), or 6 inch Resin Statues in classic Stone and regal Bronze.
Rewards range in price from $12 for a single mini figure, up to $125 for the 6-inch resin statue. Several combos encourage backers to abandon all self-restraint and collect many different Shi-Shi figures all at once, and save a little bit of money in the process.
While most Kickstarters begin the production process after the campaign ends, Bigshot Toys has fast forwarded this lengthy process by designing, developing, prototyping and tooling the factories before launching the Kickstarter. For backers, this means they will receive their rewards much faster, as the factories are poised to go into production immediately upon conclusion of the Shi-Shi campaign.
