Japanese company sells Godzilla figures for $23,000


A company called Morita Shouji [JP] is selling figures of Japanese super monsters Godzilla, Mothra and three-headed King Ghidorah that are a bit special for three reasons. They are hand-crafted, made of wood (unlike the plastic monsters used in the movies) and very expensive.

The company is selling the Godzilla and Mothra models for $3,000 and up, hoping that wealthy Japanese Godzilla fans can’t resist and buy all 20 of each of the wooden figures. But the price for the figure of mighty King Ghidorah really stands out: $23,000. The thing stands 260cm high and weighs 150kg.

Needless to say the figures are only available in Japan. But if you are a true hardcore Godzilla fan (and I know you’re out there) you can still try and email Morita Shouji and ask for exceptions (the email address and phone/fax numbers can be found here). I would be especially interested in the shipping quote.
