Have you ever wanted a solid gold figurine of your favourite character in-game? Yeah, me neither, but that’s exactly what Monster Hunter fans are getting.
U-Treasure, a Japanese brand known for their character jewellery and accessories, is making two monster sculptures in 24K gold and platinum to celebrate the game’s 15th anniversary.
There will be a Rathian figurine made entirely from gold, and it’ll cost you a whopping ¥8.8 million, or over US$80,000 (S$110,000). The Silver Rathalos will cost just as much and is constructed from platinum.
They’re delightfully ostentatious and gaudy, and I love the idea of them. The Gold Rathian measures 15.5 x 11 x 7.5cm and weighs around 600g, while the Silver Rathalos is a little wider and heavier at 15 x 15 x 7.5cm and 840g.
