Want a Castle? Have Lupin III's

OH GOD I WANTS IT MY PRECIOUS T-T


I don't know about you, but I think my favorite anime film of all time-- and my favorite Miyazaki to boot --is L upin III: Castle of Cagliostro. So you may be able to imagine my excitement when I saw a listing on Hobby Search for " The Castle of Cagliostro." What might it be? A collection of figures from the film, perhaps?

Actually, turns out they meant it literally...it's a castle. It's THE castle. Complete with a little windmill on the front, Lupin's boat, the little helicopter, the ruins, and you can even open up to see into the dungeon area. Oh, and the clocktower, which is badass.

Very, very awesome, and I totally want it. Anyone have a spare $375 (USD)? Because that's what this beauty costs. I don't even want to think about how much the shipping from Japan would be either, oy.

Should come into stock late this month, for those of you with the bucks to buy!

@ThePsychoGamer: Yup! It was actually the first feature film he directed, although not the first anime.

Watch out. Lupin will steal the castle back soon.

$375 + shipping = D'oh!
 
I guess I'd have to sell one of my kidneys in the black market if I wanted to buy it. Besides, how big is it?
