What is it made of gold? Damn right it is. Pure gold.
Tokyo’s Ginza Tanaka oversaw the creation of the statue, which is valued at 60 million yen (US$585,247). The gold alone weighs two kilograms! According to NariNari, Bandai has plans to put the pricey piece on display sometime this year in Japan and in Taiwan.
