Feed All Your Coins to The ‘Spirited Away’ No Face Coin Munching Bank!

Has it really been twenty years since Hayao Miyazaki’s Spirited Away came out? My god! How should I celebrate this second decade of beautiful animation and lovely storytelling? By buying merchandise, I don’t need of course!
Now, this Spirited Away bank isn’t new. A different version has been around for some time and can be snatched up pretty cheap on eBay. Sideshow Collectibles has stepped in to officially distribute the toy based on the classic Studio Ghibli film. This revised character model only uses one hand to devour coins while the other hand can hold either a fish or Aogaeru.
The bank stands 8.25″ tall and requires (2) AA batteries. No Face speaks three different Japanese phrases, but we don’t know which. It will run you $70 and ship sometime during the first quarter of 2022.

Place coins on the plate and No-Face speaks and devour the coins. This new version of the No Face Coin Munching Bank features 3 different phrases in Japanese including the Spirited Away theme. The item also includes both Aogaeru and a fish for No Face to hold.  No Face stands approx. 8.25″ tall.  Highly detailed at every angle makes it great for displaying from any side.

For a look at one of the earlier versions of the No Face bank in action, check out the clip below:

I’m not sure why the price is so high, considering the earlier version can be picked up for less than $30. Aside from a new sculpt of the mouth/head, No Face looks pretty much the same. Maybe it’s a licensing thing, or perhaps it’s the rising costs of importing from Japan. Either way, this is a pretty pricy novelty bank.
What do you think of this little piece of Spirited Away merchandise? Worth the $70 price tag? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
