A fine statue and no mistake

Ever wonder what happens to all those amazing life-size statues and installations in game shops after they're taken down? They usually end up on eBay, of course. That's the fate of this Metroid statue created to promote celebrated first-person adventure Metroid Prime, currently on sale for a measly £65.

Standing 190cm tall and weighing some 50kg, as you'd expect the shipping costs are a little on the high side, but wouldn't it be worth it to own a piece of Metroid history? "Bid first and worry about where to place it later," that's the eBay motto.
