Blue Note chanteuse NORAH JONES' "Not Too Late" was the previous topper, with 418,000 back in February. Hahn appeared at the Suru store in Los Angeles on May 14 to unveil and sign copies of a collectible Japanese toy that he designed called a ningyo. Ningyos are traditional Japanese dolls and this particular brand only makes 500 per run, making Hahn's figure an immediate collector's item. The dolls will retail in the U.S. for $80.
