Solid Gold Godzilla Can Be Yours for Only $1.5 Million

Only! To mark the 60th anniversary of Godzilla and the new Hollywood flick, Tokyo jeweller Ginza Tanaka is offering this solid gold 'Zilla.

The statue is nearly ten inches tall and weighs 33 pounds. According to website Fashion Press, Ginza Tanaka is selling golden Godzilla for 150 million yen (US$1.47 million). In case you were wondering, yes, that includes tax.

I'm not entirely convinced they will sell this! But in case you're in the market for a million-dollar monster statue, the gold movie icon will be on display this month and next month in Tokyo and Osaka.
