Rare Copper Rockman Statue Hits Auction Block

An interesting and pretty rare item has hit the ol' Yahoo! Auctions: a copper-finished metal statue of Classic-styled Rockman:

As one might remember, only about 200 or so of the 3.5 inch, 3.1 ounce statues were produced for the 20th anniversary of Rockman and sold through the Japanese e-Capcom store. As of this writing, the untouched opening bid for this piece is 8,500 Yen/$95.00. Not exactly cheap, but can you really put a price on an item like this? Well, I wouldn't have thought so, either, but here we are.

There is also a rare silver version, but if you're not in the market for holding your breath, then you can go for this version of the Blue Bom-- er, Copper Commando through Rinkya. And if anyone asks why he isn't blue, just tell them he's got the Needle Cannon equipped or something.
