How Much is That in ISK?

You may have seen the ad at the EVE Online logon for the new EVE Battleship models.

You can get realistic (whatever that means when we’re talking about a virtual universe) scale models of the mainstay battleships of each of the four EVE Online factions.  They are:

They sound like they are quality items from the description at the EVE Online store:

The EVE Online Battleship Models are constructed from a solid resin foundation and are mounted, ready for display, on a base emblazoned with the associated faction logo. The meticulous reproduction of EVE Online’s ships is achieved through a combination of plastic detailing, cast metal components, and hand painted accents. The end result is a striking replica of the very ships soaring through space in New Eden.

The catch is, of course, that they are $124.99 each. (Or all four for only $499.96!  If I have that much to spend on toys, I’m buying this instead.)

And while I like the game a lot, and the models look good, with shipping the cost is more than subscribing to EVE for a year.

Which lead Gaff to ask the logical question, “How much is that in ISK?”

I’m sure somebody could do that calculation give the current time card rate of exchange.
