For all those familiar with Howard Stern and "Eric The Midget/Actor", the term "0.0" is a familiar one.

In keeping with that, those subbers who were concerned should know that SBK received from Frank a grand total of:

0.0 Selfridges

For those subbers that get one, CONGRATS! Saw it today and it is really cool!


I don't think concerned is the right word, you have just as much right to having the same odds as the rest of us.

I didn't think they were distributed yet. Do you mean Frank did the pull already and assigned them? If that's the case, and you guys didn't get any, that increases my chances to 6 in 26 or 23%. :)

Maybe Frank can post who the lucky 6 are. Let me be one. [-o<

Let me put it to you this way, today I saw the subber boxes packaged up ready to be mailed and those who are lucky enough to get a Selfridges Labbit will get one in the next mailing.

Sweet. Quick turnaround by Frank for the next boxes. :)

Gotta like that. \:D/

Any hints to the next box? I assume pink and blue labbits, and the 15" labbits? Any other surprises while you were there today?

All arguing aside, LOL at the price! 100 pcs or not, a 10 inch Labbit should NEVER be more than $40 US. You can't tell me that there's not a warehouse full of blank labbits, dunnys, munnys, qees, or any other platform that they can paint any way they choose, at any time they choose. My collection is probably more than half Kozik stuff, but I'll definitely be passing on this one.

If KR is trying to price people out of collecting vinyl, they're off to a good start.

I get it if there's a big paint job and accessories... a special box, special paint, etc... lots of things can go into making pieces cost more, and make it ok to charge more. But I agree with you... this friggin labbit is just plain yellow!

(but I do want one. fingers crossed.!)

KR didn't price these. Selfridges did.

I got a Pantone 109 Labbit coming to my house as we speak, yeah I spent the money, but I don't give a nunchucks, sometimes you gotta do that sort of crap. Which is pretty funny since I still haven't picked up the 20" Murder dunny and I passed on the 1984 labbit...

I know frank, that's what i thought. I mean, your new El Panda customs work out to about the same and no offence, but they're worth it.

Selfridges have come off pretty bad on this one, but then they charge, what is it, £7.95 for a BB Dunny.

I wonder if KR are regretting teaming up with them, i hope so, because they're crap

The 1984 is a much nicer labbit than the expensive yellow one and a quarter of the price.

Ok so I did some official compaining and it turns out that Selfridges did this on their own as far as the pricing. They paid the NORMAL wholesale price for a limited 10".

KR is looking into this as it came as a surprise to them as well.

As far as the SBK argument, I will sell multiple subs to whoever wants them, as well as excess stock in 'bulk' at wholesale, and in all cases I can only recommend the retail price and it is NOT up to me what peole do with what is essentially their property once I get my asking price. I cannnot tell people NOT to sell, trade or destroy the stuff once it is theirs.

SBK has lots of stuff because they show up at least once a week, cash in hand and never mess around. If anyone else wants to do the same, they are always welcome.
They also buy direct from Kidrobot, and always buy multiples when other stores/retailers/SDCC etc do an exclusive or whatever... so often times they have more stuff than a normal subber would.



as far as subbers, they get the exact same treatment and 'odds' of random allotments as anyone else, since I make a point of 'blind packing' the subber boxes, that is, the boxes are packed, then addressed, so I wont subconsciousy play favorites. Some times I dont even pack the boxes, if it happens to be a day my assistant dude is there.

maybe it is that price so they DONT sell, they have these things in a very nice display and so selling them would ruin it.

Im waiting for the sale to start after the event ends.

Interesting. £160 definitely feels like getting violated in the poop chute whilst sugar is being poured down my gas tank.

Subtract one from my complete 10" Labbit collection, I am never gonna pay that kind of money for a labbit. Absurd. Someone let me know when they go on sale.

I would LOVE a Selfridges Labbit for my best friend for his birthday/christmas, so I'm hoping they go on sale at some point.

Hope you Londoners are on the look out for the rest of us. Hopefully I can find a mule.

When i go to Selfridges, The "wonder room"(where the toys are) does'nt get visited by me, as it's a blatant rip-off. Just like the Yellow Labbit, funnily enough.

Well, if you could... I'd really like to get one of these, but only if they go on sale. I don't normally spend more than $60 on a gift... so for some reason I doubt I'm going to get one. But I'd make it worth you while if you were able to grab me one when/if they ever do go on sale for a decent price.
