Solid Gold Mega Man Medal Will Set You Back 350,000 Yen
posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
CAPCOM began taking taking pre-orders on Friday for a solid gold medal to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the Rockman/Mega Man game franchise.
The medal is shaped like a coin, and also comes with a chain attachment so buyers can also wear it as a necklace. The medal is 26mm (about an inch) in diameter, and weighs 20 grams (0.7 ounces). But the real kicker is the price. The 18-karat gold medal costs 350,000 yen (about US$3,115). CAPCOM is limiting the number of medals to 50.
For those with a bit smaller budget, CAPCOM is also selling a same-size silver medal with a pixel-art design (although it's still shaped like a coin) for a mere 15,000 yen (about US$134). CAPCOM is making 300 of the silver medals.
Both medals will ship to customers in late September.
Mega Man: Fully Charged, the new animated television series of the Mega Man (Rockman) games, will have its premiere at the Comic-Con International: San Diego convention on July 20. Dentsu Entertainment USA (Monsuno, LBX) revealed in April 2017 that the series will premiere on Cartoon Network in 2018 or later.
