Bigshot Toys' Shi-Shi the Tiny Guardian Kickstarter Surpasses Goal in Under 24 Hours

Many people these days will tell you the odds are stacked against you. You can slave away for a large company who shows you no loyalty or you can struggle on your own, throwing ideas at the wall hoping something will stick. Bigshot Toyworks have always played both sides of the fence, taking on large projects for major players in the collectibles market like threeA, Sideshow and Pop Culture Shock while developing their own creative properties. Today, Bigshot launched their newest creation; Shi-Shi The Tiny Guardian, and from the looks of it, she's already got a few hundred fans!

Bigshot was already all in on this new project, having been knee deep in development for over 2 years and deciding that they would enter into their Kickstarter with all points primed and ready to go straight into production when their meager goal was reached. Now that their Kickstarter has earned over twice that goal, backers can be guaranteed some adorable toys are coming their way, along with the promise of more fun from Shi-Shi's seemingly epic universe! Until that time, let's check out what's up for offer at the moment...

Bigshot Toys, known across the globe for their highly creative and fantastically designed art toys, proudly presents their next epic creation... a character sure to melt your heart and capture your imagination... Shi-Shi the Tiny Guardian! The moment you gaze into those big, adorable eyes, you'll want to make Shi-Shi your new friend. Luckily, Bigshot has a Kickstarter for that!

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.

After two years of tireless work, Shi-Shi is ready to be born. A tiny protector for every collector!
