We reviewed some Monster Hunter figures last year, shortly after Monster Hunter: World hit PC, and some of them were pretty sweet. But none of them are that sweet, or maybe “grotesquely ostentatious” is the term I’m really looking for, like the 24k gold Rathian figurine and the platinum built silver Rathalos, offered by Japanese collectibles manufacturer U-Treasure .
Hypebeast shared photos of the statues on Instgram, while details translated by Google are available on the U-Treasure site. The Gold Rathian measures approximately 15.5 by 11 cm, measures approximately 7.5 cm in height and weighs around 600 g, while the Silver Rathalos measures 15 x 15 x 7.5 cm and weighs approximately 840 g. They each come with a glass case, because of course they do, we’re not talking injection molded plastic crapola, folks.
How much they cost? I’m glad you asked. They sell for ¥ 8.8 million each, which is a little more (holy kapowzers) $ 80,000, or you can choose them in a set for ¥ 16.5 million at a negligible discount, that’s $ 150,000 and change depending on currency conversion fluctuations. For gamers on a budget, the silver, gold-plated, or rhodium-plated models can be had for ¥ 880,000, or around $ 8000. That’s each, by the way.
Unfortunately, they are only available for purchase in Japan.
