Want a Hunger Games Mockingjay Pin? It Will Cost You $999 — at Target!

In order to get their hands on a Mockingjay pin, Hunger Games fans will be whistling to the tune of 999 squirrels.

Oops — we mean $999. At Target.

You heard us right. According to The Hollywood Reporter, fans with Capitol-size bank accounts will be able to purchase solid 14k gold Mockingjay pins at Target on Aug. 20, the day before The Hunger Games is released on DVD and Blu-ray.

Not so surprisingly, there will only be 100 pins available for purchase, in addition to other high-end limited items such as a replica of Katniss’s leather hunting jacket ($349) and a lithograph autographed by Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth, and eight other stars ($699). Both items will hit shelves on Aug. 18.

For those with more of a District 12-level budget, Target will also be selling a wide range of other HG products, including jewelry, picture frames, and (hopefully life-size) cardboard cutouts in a more reasonable price range: $6.99 to $37.99.

Do you think The Hunger Games is right on "target" with these prices, or should they shoot their arrows in a different range? Weigh in below!
