How much money will you drop for all this JoJo bling?


More like 'JoJo's Bling-zarre Adventure'!

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure has always been one of the most fabulous things around. It's no surprise that creator Hirohiko Araki's striking art style has been used to create work for luxury brands and fashion lines like Gucci, in addition to illustrating the manga. That in mind it shouldn't be hard to imagine that Bandai Namco would want to leverage that as they market JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle to the west.

Their latest strike comes in the form of an ultra-limited "Exquisite Edition", which features a statue of Stardust Crusaders hero Jotaro Kujo and his Stand, Star Platinum. It's roughly the same statue that was released in the game's Japanese collector's edition last year, except this one's been blinged-out with over 6,000 Swarovski crystals. In other words, it's real sparkly, which is somehow fitting for a JoJo-based thing to be.

The Exquisite Edition is a one-off exclusive, and is actually being auctioned on eBay, with all proceeds going to the UK-based charity GamesAid. At the time of this writing the top bid sits at £255, which is kind of a good deal considering that Bandai Namco estimates the package's value at over €2000.
