EB Games Australia are auctioning off two very limited video game collectibles for the Starlight Foundation this year – a JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Crystal Figurine & Mega Bloks World of Warcraft Thrall Doomhammer.
The JoJo statue is based on the recently released JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle video game. It is covered in 6,000 Swarovski crystals and sits at 17cm tall, weighing in at 380gm.
[UPDATE]: Although not explicitly stated in the auction, this is the Exquisite Edition and comes with a copy of the game in an Exquisite Edition special packaging. This item was donated by Bandai Namco Games in Australia. Good on you guys!

It is the same statue as the one auctioned off recently by Bandai Namco Games in the UK. There was only one of these released in the UK, and possibly the only one that will be made available in Australia. There was also one other sold on eBay Germany and another to be sold in the United States. To date, there are only 4 known to exist (this being one of them).
The starting price is a hefty $4,500 AUD however all proceeds are going to the Starlight Children Foundation. You can place a bid here.
Also on auction is a life-size World of Warcraft Thrall Doomhammer made entirely out of Mega Bloks. There are reportedly only a few of these created worldwide so if you like World of Warcraft and Mega Bloks, here are two of your favourite things combined. If you attended EB Expo last year, you may have saw the giant hammer on display. To give you an indication of the size, here’s Morph from EB Games Australia modelling the hammer for your enjoyment.
The auction stars at $650 AUD and you can pop a bid on it here.
All the auctions can also be found at the Starlight Foundation EB Games webpage located here.
Remember to be generous and dig deep for this year’s Starlight event. Even if you aren’t bidding on these rather expensive collectibles, you can still donate at any EB Games locations throughout Australia.
