Capcom's Latest Monster Hunter Figurine is Pure Gold

Posted by Alex Olney

Literally

To celebrate the ten-year anniversary of Monster Hunter, Capcom has decided to celebrate with the release of a delightful little figure of a felyne – a cat-like race from the series.

This little number would be eye-catching enough, bearing armour made from the mighty rathalos, but Capcom is marking this special occasion by making the entire model (bar the stand) out of solid gold – 24 karat to be precise.

Collectors will surely be vying for this 3.5" tall miniature, but should you be one of those interested, be prepared to extend your mortgage.

With a price tag of ¥2,990,000 (which equates to roughly £17,300 or $29,200) you'll have to have very deep pockets indeed to afford this trinket.

Would you consider selling a kidney to buy ones of these? Alternatively, would you like to see the model in a more affordable material?

24 k is very soft gold however. 120 grams for this price is steep...

LOL who would buy this? They'll have better chance selling megaman with a golden armor.

For 17 grand I'd be expecting the armour to be made out of real Rathalos hide; it'd be no more fantastical than this price. The figurine is quite nice, but that stand looks like it's come free with a box of corn flakes.

This belongs here or something (slight profanity).

Looks cool, but (IMO) a painted figure with some wash for detail would have looked better anyway, and it's... Way... Too... Expensive... x_x

Pure Gold? Pfft. Thats so 1800s. I would consider buying it if it was decorated with Taaffeite and Diamonds.
