Yeah, it looks great! Wasn't too fussed at all when it was announced and now I've ordered both... :lol:

Couldn't have one without the other, right?!!

Nice! Fingers crossed you get a good deal! :D

With the international shipping and customs charges it’s better for me to buy as much as I can from the store at once.

A co worker of mine order the devil Flanders and glasses are warped. They weren’t round. Has anyone had issues with the glasses?

My glasses definitely aren't perfectly round, but I'm not sure I'd go as far to call them warped either.

Come on KR stock this somewhere in the UK. I don’t mind paying more than the US but ridiculous shipping and customs prices mean this will be £70+

So who managed to get a 7” Jade Buddha? Only 40 left on iamretro.com when I last looked.

Also had my 2 Devil Flanders’ and 3” Mr Sparkle, love them. Ned is indeed huge!

I managed to get one off iamretro. Dreading the custom charges on that one mind. I also had my GID Ned delivered this morning. I couldn't believe the size of his head when I opened it :lol:

Well that 7 inch release for buddha was a bust. The KR site wouldn't load, and when I was able to go to "retro" the site gave me database errors. Got home from my compute and sold out :O(

Aww man, that sucks!

The Retro site crashed like crazy when I was trying to get the 3” version so I tried KR first this time.
Glad I did cos I didn’t think they’d sell out quite that fast.

Seriously KR you need to get an EU/UK stockist. It’s cheaper for me to buy Jade Buddha Homer of an eBay flipper than off your own website. Sort it please FFS!!!

So it looks like my order for the 7” Jade Buddha may have been cancelled! I’ve been checking my bank and after I placed the order the money was showing as due to be taken out (available and current balance was about £98 out) but now this is not the case and no payment has been taken... :?

I’ve contacted KR and Globelshopex the international shipper and I’m waiting on their reply.

Has anyone had this happen before and do you think my order will be fulfilled?

I'm sorry that your order may be cancelled. I've never had anything like that happen to me when I've ordered off KR in the past. Have you had a response off either of them yet? I really do hope your order gets fulfilled

Thanks!

KR came back to me the same day and said GS would have more answers as they deal with international orders.
Not heard back from them yet so have asked KR to contact them. Fingers crossed!

So I heard back from GS and they apparently don’t control the stock etc etc and to speak to KR, round in circles we go!
Basically that’s it, order cancelled due to no stock. :(

I’ve resorted to eBay to get one in case the price goes up any more.

Well said. They should just partner with a reputable supplier of vinyl figures over here, who already has the infrastructure set up. I may actually contact someone and see if we can set something set up in the UK (which could supply the EU).

Alternatively, I could just buy it wholesale from KR and set up a website...
