rynling: (Ganondorf)

I was in New York for work this week, so of course I made time to go to the Nintendo store, where I saw this great and terrible thing...




I had known that this existed, and it's even more impressive than I thought it would be, but it raises some questions. Specifically, how did they decide on a price point? And who buys something like this? There's a small sign on the display case that says you need to place a special order from the cash register, and how awkward would that be? I mean, I can just imagine someone going up to the person manning the till and kind of mumbling, Yes, I wish to purchase that two foot tall statue of Ganondorf, let me spell my name out for you. And then, once it's actually delivered, what do you do with it? Do you create a special display, like put it on a pedestal or something? Or do you put it in one of those open wooden cabinets that people use as Buddhist altars? If you're financially comfortable enough to buy this, do you live in a place that's large enough for your Ganondorf statue to have its own room? Or do you hide it in a closet so that no one witnesses your shame?

On a similar note, I'm perplexed by the fact that Nintendo thought it was a reasonable idea to make a Wind Waker Ganondorf playset, which is a real thing that really exists in the world. I wish I were joking about this, but...
