Do you have about $600,000 burning a hole in your bank account? If you do, leave it there but just imagine that it could buy you a single gold anime statue – if it were for sale.
The Sagittarius statue is only about 15cm high, but it’s made from pure gold and weighs around 4lbs. It’s being released by Bandai to celebrate the 10th anniversary of its popular Saint Seiya line. The toys have included almost all the characters in the universe and are beloved by fans. This statue is not for sale – it’s just commemorative – but is estimated to be worth 60 million Yen. That’s about $586,000. Yes, they must really love Saint Seiya.
