MINE: The $1.5-Million Solid Gold Godzilla Statue

July 16, 2014


This is the solid gold Godzilla statue crafted by the Ginza Tanaka jewelry company to celebrate Godzilla's 60th birthday. Did you get him anything? I got him A NUKE TO THE FACE. The statue stands 24-centemeters (~10-inches) tall and weighs 15-kilograms (~33-pounds). You can buy it too, for a scant 150-million yen (~$1.47-million). Alternatively, you can join my crew, help me steal it, and get a cut of the profits. "What's my take?" How does an inch of the tail sound? "Like not enough." You drive a hard bargain. I'll tell you what: how about after the robbery I just put a bullet in you so I don't have to give you anything? "An inch of the tail sounds fair." Too bad, now you're only getting a toenail.

Thanks to Philip, who agrees Indiana Jones is an idiot for thinking that bag of sand would make an acceptable golden idol substitute.
