Capcom Goes for the Gold for Mega Man's 30th Anniversary

To celebrate 30 years of Mega Man, Capcom is ditching the "blue" in "Blue Bomber" and going straight for the gold with their latest offering: A 4-inch, 3.2-ounce solid gold statue of the fighter for everlasting peace.

The price? A paltry 2.4 million yen, or around $22,000 (plus ten percent sales tax). You've probably got that laying around somewhere in your couch cushions, right?

If that's too much for you, there's a smaller version of the same that measures 2.3 inches, 0.7 ounces, and will cost you only 690,000 yen, or about $6,227 (plus the aforementioned tax). Maybe if you check the cup holder in your car?

Both versions come with a neat pedestal stating what the figure celebrates, a glass exhibit case, and a case for that featuring the 30th anniversary logo -- perfect for locking the whole thing away so that no one can ever see nor steal your precious.

Either way you go, one thing is for certain: This thing's very existence has probably just ruined the collections of a lot of fans who must have simply everything Mega Man. The other one percent can pre-order it now by clicking here.
