A company like MSI wouldn’t ignore such a big event of its 35th anniversary. Here, I don’t mean “a company like MSI” as it has risen to the position among four major motherboard brands and a representative gaming graphics card manufacturer after 35 years of steady technology development, and has been at the forefront of the spreading of gaming monitors and gaming laptops and is the leading manufacturer of gaming PCs, and it has accomplished a feat of advancing into various fields, including power, case, SSD, cooler, keyboard and mouse, and taking up a large proportion in the OEM market. These factors are not necessary to be explained. Because everyone knows.
MSI is a hardware company that emphasizes 'gaming' at first. In order to give the gaming series a unique identity, it put the dragon emblem and got inspiration from that, and then pulled out the cute Lucky character. It is not difficult to make it. There are many companies that make it a one-time event and end it. But MSI is steady. They make toys and smartphone stands of Lucky. Moreover, they don't just make them, they make them in a variety of sizes, from small enough to be hung on a smartphone, to huge, life-size. So, I wanted to say that the word “a company like MSI” means the company likes characters and utilizes them well.
A company like MSI wouldn’t ignore such a big event of its 35th anniversary. So, I was not at all surprised when I heard that MSI made “Lucky goods to celebrate its 35th anniversary”. Anyone who knew MSI would have expected it. But more and more modifiers were added to the description. “It's more like a statue than a figure”, “It's too big, especially the box is very big”, “So it's heavy”, “It's gold”, “It's a limited edition”, etc. When I received and opened it, it was exactly as described. In deed it’s MSI's 35th anniversary. Seeing this, I already looking forward to the 50th and 100th anniversaries.
For other products, I would test, assemble, or disassemble, but I can’t do it with this one, so I’ll just open the box and take a lot of pictures and upload them.
MSI Golden Lucky Figure.
The box is huge. A 600x400mm ruler is a bit short for it. When I looked again, the size of the box was written 50x43.5x43cm.
When you open it, there’s another black box with packaging materials.
Now it looks like a real limited edition box.
It's a little smaller. About 410x350x350mm.
I opened the lid. There is a card in the packaging at the top.

The packaging inside the box. It’s filled with packaging materials to fit the shape of the figure.
MSI Golden Lucky Figure Limited Edition.
Pedestal bottom. Marked as MSI 35th Anniversary.
The pedestal is 240mm round.
Now that we've looked around, let's take a closer look.
It’s not real gold. If it's real gold at that size, it would weigh more than 3kg.
The color is closer to rose gold than gold.
Due to the nature of the material, reflection is inevitable. I could avoid all the reflections with some more effort, but I don't have the time to do that.

Tech meets aesthetic.
