View Full Version : Any UK 1:1 Droid owners?

Hey gang. I've always had an eye on Sideshow's lifesize pieces and after spending a good while salivating over Shadow's thread I am almost ready to part with a sizeable chunk of my savings to get myself an R2.
The main stumbling block is shipping. Because SS doesn't ship R2 from their EU warehouse and their site doesn't quote shipping from the US I'm hoping someone here has already went through the procedure and could give me a ballpark figure for shipping and possible customs charges.

I dread to think how much it could cost, but darn it, my Yoda needs a playmate!

I think i've seen them on Play.

As for the shipping? Crikey, that's going to be expensive. They come in three massive boxes i believe. Good luck, i'd love to see one of these come to the UK. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Raider on the Sideshow Freaks forum is from England and has them both. You could try PMing him. I don't know what the details were in terms of shipping.

Thanks guys. Play.com has him listed, but has no price for him. You can't even add him to your basket. i remember Forbidden Planet were to carry him, but they have nothing on their site.
I'll maybe sign up to Sideshow Freaks and give that Raider guy a shout, but I was hoping there would be a Scummer or two from the UK to help. In fact, I'd be very surprised if there wasn't at least one UK scummer that has picked one up.
Thanks again.

Good luck, i recon shipping for these will come in at at least 1600. Add tax....
