I don't want to offend andybody but this is a little bit crazier than I'm used to. Good luck to them ... and the vacs are only 100...so our friends who own gold plated kirbies should be millioaires... what a shame! my2cents

People can buy whatever they want, but it looks ugly. I wonder how much the markup is on that.

WOW!!!!!$1,000,000 for a gold plated ROYAL?????If you want an unplated Royal-they are MUCH cheaper-and will do the same job.Can't beleive this-Oh well,appeals to the folks that buy half million dollar Hi-fi systems.Maybe that vacuum should have been built out of titanium-gold color-and MUCH stronger metal!and the price could be a lot cheaper!And as above the gold plated Royal is more expensive than the Half Mil Hi-Fi!!!

Brilliant

... one hell of a marketing idea. Should drive a lot of buzz.

SOB's can stuff their million dollar Chinese vac ...

It's insulting to charge $1 million for a vacuum and have it made in China. Someone's been smoking something if they think anyone will buy a million dollar version of a $600 Royal vacuum (or whatever the normal price is).

Yes,thats the final insult-the vacuum is built in China-was it plated there,too?A VINTAGE US built Royal would be cheaper--and--BETTER!

"Does it come with a free Cadillac too !!!!!!" I'd hope so - gold plated too of course.

In my opinion it is the worst marketing idea ever. I bet in about two months they will pull them and claim they sold but none will have been sold. If I wanted a gold Royal I would pay the 600 bucks and have it plated my self.

Wonder if a rich person would buy that vacuum anyway?Bet the person would pay a CONTRACTOR to do the vacuuming-and the contractor would bring his own vacuum-gold or not.

And we thought Kirbys and other DTD vacuums were priced high?

I don't think that they really intend to sell these... It's probably just a marketing thing. They have raps and stuff like that with it on their Youtube channel.
