King - One character that doesn't look particularly suited to running, but none the less if you want him, he's yours for a mere 80,000 gold coins.

Lucy - The Rock Chick, and pretty cheap too otherwise I would not have unlocked her... Can't remember how many coins it was exactly but would have been one of the cheaper ones! Update - She cost 7,000 Coins!

Tagbot - This robot character costs 12,000 coins.

Tasha - Now she looks ready to run and you can play as here for 30,000 gold coins.

Brody - The surfer dude you looks ready to run - yours for a whopping 350,000 gold coins.

Prince K - Currently the most expensive character in the game at 980,000 gold coins!
