Swarovski-studded life-size Fist of the North Star figure fetches $39,000

And a couple of months after he first surfaced, the life-size Fist of the North Star figure of Kenshirō studded with 500,000 Swarovski crystals worth 10 million yen ($130,000) is someone’s to keep! Up for bids on Yahoo! Japan website in December, the doll earned 3 million yen ($39,000). Studded with 52 different kinds of crystals, a 185-centimeter-tall (73-inch-tall) figure in a custom-made acrylic case sits pretty in the house of a self-employed man in his 40s from Fujieda City in Shizuoka Prefecture, southwest of Tokyo, who is a big fan. 10% of the final proceeds will go to the Japanese Red Cross to aid those affected in the March 11 Great Eastern Japan Earthquake.
