I guess?

According to Dengeki Hobby and Game Impress Watch, the highly detailed, 160-centimeter Hikari is produced by a high-precision 3D printer, costs 2.7 million yen (US$23,800), and comes with a 10 to 15 minute CD message as well as letter from her.

Before buying the Hikari statue, Bandai asks you to check to make sure you have a place to put her as well as to consult with your family members and to check your wallet.
