There are a lot of things I could see myself spending $1.4 million on if I had that kind of money like perhaps a super nice telescope and observatory on some land away from city lights or perhaps a new house with its own video arcade, but I can’t say I could see myself blowing it on a solid gold Darth Vader mask. However, perhaps you have deeper pockets than I do and a love for Star Wars that can’t be satisfied in which case this $1.4 million solid gold Darth Vader mask might be exactly what you are looking for!
Yesterday, a Japanese jeweler named Tanaka Kikinzoku unveiled this 33lb solid gold Darth Vader mask that they will be putting up for sale on Star Wars Day (May 4th of course) for a jaw-dropping $1.4 million. As cool as this would be to own, I just can’t see spending that kind of money on it unless you are a billionaire that uses $100 bills as toilet paper. I think if just take a normal plaster Darth Vader mask/helmet and paint it gold it would impress your Star Wars loving friends just as much.
Of course if a solid gold Darth Vader mask is a bit out of your price range, maybe some gold Star Wars coins would be more in your budget because they are also going to be selling the gold Star Wars coins below for prices ranging from $1,200 to $11,000. That still seems insane to me but I’m poor enough that I am sitting here griping about my $40 chiropractor appointment I have to leave for as soon as I finish this post.
If anybody wants to buy these for me it would be greatly appreciated! Otherwise, just share this solid gold Darth Vader mask post with any Star Wars fans you know and that would put a smile on my face. And make sure to go like Global Geek News on Facebook and follow Global Geek News on Twitter too!
