Want to be the man — or woman — with the golden Gundam? Get pure gold statues of the RX-78-2 Gundam and Char’s Zaku II from the popular Gundam anime franchise.
Sold only in Japan, these gorgeous gold statues are the handiwork of Kogei Co., Ltd., the same high-end crafts and toy company that produced limited edition pure gold Mazinger Z statues last year. The pure gold Gundam statues will be their first products under their new U-Works project, in collaboration with Urara Cube Co., Ltd. Both the RX-78-2 Gundam (Beam Rifle Version) and Char’s Zaku II 24-karat gold statues will sell for JPY26.4 million (US$241,375.20), while the much smaller RX-78-2 Gundam (Beam Saber Version) will have a price of JPY3.96 million (US$36,206.28).(more…)
