How beloved is animation director Hayao Miyazaki? They make toys not of his characters, but of the director himself. Bigshot Toyworks has announced a new collectible figurine honoring the legendary 73-year-old Japanese filmmaker.

The resin-made toy, designed by Martin Hsu, will be limited to 300 pieces. The “Miya-san” tribute figures will be available for pre-order at $95 starting Tuesday, January 21, at 2PM EST.

Proceeds from the sales of the figurine will be donated to an as-yet-undetermined charity chosen by Martin Hsu and Klim Kozinevich. The projected ship date of the product is April 2014.
