God is sending DBZ fans everywhere a message. He's telling us all to become insanely rich and start bidding :lol:

Honestly I do wish I had the cash to blow on this, I'd be bidding in an instant

Holy jeez, are you serious? I'd hate to be off topic, but I don't suppose you have a picture you could post (or probably better, PM me)?

This is one inch taller than me. Wow. I wonder how this looks if I put this in my small six-tatami-mat room.

Creepy... I think I'll pass on that. :|

Anyone else notice how odd his left arm is positioned?

And the chest... The whole thing doesn't sit right with me. I don't like it at all.

Wow, dude if you're serious then that's ludicrous in my opinion. I have wasted a lot of money in my life, especially on things that aren't even tangible like going out to dinner every night, but at least I have enjoyed myself. I don't mean to pass judgement or sound rude but you could buy a nice used car for that kind of money, or if you have one already put in the most awesome stereo; the list goes on and on. I am curious, if your willing to discuss, how you were able to justify that purchase?
I wanted a mission, and for my sins, they gave me one.

That’s pretty cool! It's five inches taller than me ...
Too bad I don’t have $4000. Or live in America, because I would have snapped this up in a heartbeat.
I wonder if this is an official product or fanmade?

I love the idea of a Goku (or any DB universe character) statue, but having seen this Goku one I am not very impressed. 4000 bucks for something that has about the level of detail of a 5 bucks chinese knock-off action figure? You could make a much better looking statue for a lot less yourself, provided you are somewhat skilled and creative.

I don't mean to get off topic so please don't drill me. I am very fortunate to be living a great life. I have a job where I'm making almost $22 an hour working for my parents. I have had a savings account since I was 5, my parents helped me start saving at a very young age and they also started a "ScottTrade" account for me years ago, I mess around with that a little bit every day. I'm a full time college student and studying very hard, as long as I keep my grades at A's, my parents will continue to pay for just about everything. The reason I'm buying the Halo, Bioshock, and Gears of War statues is because I am planning to open a LAN center in the next year or so but it all depends on what happens with my job this coming summer. If you think my DBZ collection is big, the sheer number of video game promo posters, standees, banners, and statues will blow your mind.

As I said, I am very luck to live such a fortunate life. My parents are very smart and did a good job raising me so I'm in good shape.

Back on topic, I agree that the statue looks kinda odd, with the arm placement and the way the chest looks but its not that big of a deal. Thats still an incredible statue, I'm sure that everyone reading this post would love to have that sitting in their room :lol:

Not going to lie, despite it's flaws, if I had the money I would buy it in a heart beat. My boyfriend would be pissed to have that statue in our apartment but I wouldn't care, it's a 1:1 scale size Goku!

And where the hell is Vegeta!
