Slippery as an eel, this pirate may be ; but this time he has no escaping you. After all, being made of the most precious of metals (read gold) does tend to make people stiff. Captain Jack Sparrow of the Pirates of the Caribbean fame has been made into a lovely gold statue of pure 24 karat gold.
For the half a million dollars, you get a statue that is 1.8 kilos in weight (4 pounds) and 26 cms tall. Only three such statues have been created by the Japan based Kurotani Corporation and each bears a price tag of 36,000,000 yen (about $466,000). The statue is part of the ongoing Disney Expo Japan 2012. Head on to the expo to purchase it. The statue has been made with a licensing agreement with Walt Disney Co Japan.
