Anyone know where to buy the first colossus statue?

9 replies 761 views Edited Oct 9, 2010

Hi everyone,

 

I'm looking to pick up the 8"  resin statue of the first colossus mentioned in this thread

Every place I search seems to be sold out so I was wondering if any of you knew of any source to purchase a statue. 

 

Thanks a lot.

Finally got pm'd links to work.  Got a translation of the products description but none of my translations really made sense.

 

Anybody know what the last sentence here is saying?  Online translations hint at slight cracks or something.

 

巨大なコールドキャスト製の第一の巨像。高さは25センチくらいです。重さは4キロ近い完成品です。開封していますが美品に感じます。巨像
本体、ワンダ(2センチサイズ)、ベース部となっています。箱の上ブタ内部にうすい折れあります。

 

Thanks

Follow up:

I ended up purchasing the statue from Japanese Ebay through an intermediary site.  The process was a bit difficult and costly, the entire transaction probably cost something around $300.  The worst part was that the statue, like (I've learned) many others, came broken.  The hammer that the colossus carries was snapped at the handle.  I also broke a few of the "cloth" streamers that hang from the ribs.  The statue is incredibly fragile, you really have to take care about where you touch it or else the pieces will snap.  The story does have a happy ending though.  A friend of mine is a jeweler and has lots of equipment and tools for manipulating small parts.  She was able to fully repair my statue to the point where the hammer that the colossus carries has been suspended about a half inch off the base ever since she repaired it.  I can't even tell the piece was ever broken anywhere.  IT IS BEAUTIFUL!!!  It was definitely worth the high price tag to me.  However, it would be worthless if not for my friend who repaired it so beware if you are also in the market for this piece that it is highly likely that you will purchase it broken or break it once you obtain it.  I really wish they would release a piece for each colossus, I would literally drop the $1,500 or so to get the rest.  I'm trying to get all the One Coine Grand figures.  I have 3 plus 2 more in the mail and I'm in the market for the Wander + Agro and Mono statues.

Direct Translation:

"First large image of enormous cold cast make. Height is about 25 centimeters. Weight is the 4 kilos close finished product. You have opened, but you are moved by the beauty item. Large image itself, wander (2 centimeter size) and base"

hope that helps. if you have a Mac, I just used the translator in "Dashboard" and went from Japanese to English...
