‘Hunger Games’ Pin Can Be Yours—for $999

Target to sell Katniss Everdeen’s signature jewelry as DVD tie-in

Yes, we loved The Hunger Games. Yes, we wish Katniss Everdeen had been around as a role model when we were younger.

But will we be rushing to Target to throw down $999 for a 14-karat gold replica of our heroine’s Mockingjay pin? Maybe if Gale comes with it.

CNN reports the mass retailer is set to sell 100 of the pricey pins, as well as 100 $349 replicas of the leather jacket Jennifer Lawrence, the actress who portrays Katniss, wore in the movie and 100 lithographs with 10 autographs from stars of the movie. The promotion will coincide with the DVD release on August 18.

Target shoppers don’t normally see such expensive items in the stores, but a VP says in a statement that the chain “wanted to surprise our guests by taking it up a notch for The Hunger Games and unveiling a prestige collection for devoted fans,” according to the network.

Ready to fork up the dough and fight to the death for one of those items? May the odds be ever in your favor.
