“Captain Jack Sparrow of the Pirates of the Caribbean film series stands up in gold for 36,000,000 yen (about $466,000). Played by Johnny Depp, this fictional character is offered by Japan based Kurotani Corporation in a limited number of three only. The other-wise scruffy looking character for once gets an opulent treatment. Jack Sparrow in pure 24K gold is 26 cm tall and weighs 1,800 grams.”
