Target is going high-end for The Hunger Games DVD and Blu-ray release.

In addition to offering pre-orders of the discs, the retailer has announced that it will be selling a solid 14-K gold Mockingjay pin, like the one Jennifer Lawrence’s Katniss wears in the film, for an astonishing $999.

But the high-end merchandise doesn’t stop there. Target, which is known for offering a variety of items at inexpensive prices, will also be selling a replica of Katniss’ leather hunting jacket for $349 and a lithograph autographed by 10 Hunger Games actors, including Lawrence and Liam Hemsworth, for $699. The catch: Only 100 of each item will be available for purchase.
