Mega Man

Capcom is releasing a solid gold Mega Man statue that would look great on any collector's shelf. The catch? It costs nearly $22,000.

To celebrate the character's 30th anniversary - which actually took place in December last year - this statue has now been put up online for pre-order. It measures in at approximately 100mm (which is just under 4 inches), is made up of 99.99% pure gold, and weighs 90g. As mentioned above, as lovely as it is, the thing isn't cheap, costing a whopping 2.4 million yen (approx. $21,673 / £16,711). If you're planning to go through life without a family, mortgage, vehicle, or food, this one might be for you.


If that model is slightly too expensive, a smaller model is also on offer. At 60mm tall, weighing just a third of the original model at 30g, this smaller variant will cost you 690,000 yen (approx. $6,227 / £4,800).

If you're sitting on an actual goldmine, or if you'd like to check out the product listings for yourself, pre-orders are being taken right here. They come with their display cases as standard, which you'd certainly be hoping for considering the price.
