Thanks for the notification Brian.

Ouch, this shop seems to be very expensive... and see the shipping cost for worldwide shipping :shock:  :arrow:


USPS Priority Mail International.
$185.01+ = 50% of the subtotal.

USPS Express Mail International.
$185.01+ = 75% of the subtotal.

...and I'm almost sure -for a such amount- to pay International Duties, Taxes, and Regulations...  :(

I'll get that statue for sure, but I'll wait to find it elsewhere...

Hi friends. I'am a french Dragon's Lair Fan and I want to order this wonderful statue on Electric Tiki website, but I read "items are only available to US residents". The item is available on ebay, but it's more expensive. According to you, am I obliged to buy the item on ebay or could I find a legal way to buy it on Electric Tiki website?

Thank you for your answers  ;)

I put you banner on my blog: http://neocalimero.fr

See you soon

Brian provided a link to order it in Belgium, but it's expensive  :-\  :arrow: http://www.lacitedesnuages.be/boutique/fiche_produit.cfm?ref=ELDS100&type=60&code_lg=lg_fr&num=26

Caution, the ebay version is the 'normal' version of the statue, not the ARTIST PROOF edition limited to 50 ex. worldwide.
As far as I know, there's no other option than the official Electric Tiki website link to order the special edition, and yes... only for US residents. Just ask someone from US who can order it for you.

Thank you for your answer. It's the Artist Proof Limited Edition I want...

I sent this email to Electric Tiki (excuse my bad english):

Hello. I am a French Dragon’s Lair (and Don Bluth’s work) fan who watches closely your creations. I wanted to order on your shop the Daphne statue (exclusively signed on your shop)  but I realized that this item is only available to US residents. Could you make an exception for me and accept that I order it to you, even if the delivery is in France? I dream about this statue for my collection, it will accompany perfectly my original posters of Dragon’s Lair & Space Ace signed by Gary Goldman and Don Bluth and other stuffs (videogames, laserdiscs, etc.). I shall eternally be grateful to you if you accepted, pleeeeeeease. I also intend to buy you later Kimberly from Space Ace videogame (I hope one day you’ll create a Dirk statue).

I kneel down before you, hoping that you will accept my request. I thank you beforehand

Best regards

Grégory Riou

Hi Gregory,

Thanks for your enthusiasm.  Unfortunately licensing restrictions do not permit us to sell outside of the US.  Making exceptions could cause us to get our license revoked or worse.

best,

Electric Tiki Design

I think it's over for me.

Thank you for the hint, I will think about it. It is not easy to trust in a stranger for a lot of money. But thank you for the advice.  ;)

Hello

Tu peux toujours essayer une société de "forwarding" a laquelle tu fais envoyer ton achat et qui te l'envoie en Europe.

Par exemple : http://www.shipito.com/   mais il doit y en avoir bien d'autres...

Pas de conseil a donner, je n'ai jamais eu recours a ce plan. Par contre si tu utilise ce systeme, donne nous tes commentaires !

A+

And now,for the non french readers :-)

You can try a Forwarding company that receives your object in the us and then ship it to your Eu adress..
Never tried it so can't give any advice, but i found this one for example : http://www.shipito.com/
Let us have feedback if you do try !
Excuse my english... I'm a Swiss-French guy

And TEN months after the pre-order, here's what I got today  :-*  :arrow:



Arg! a 'DOUANE' sticker around the box.... it means the box has been open by custom  :twisted:  :ghost:
I'm not angry about the (fortunately only) 10€ of extra fee, I'm just afraid about something broken... it's so fragile!

OK, let's open the first box :



...so far so good, let's open the real Daphne statue box  :-*  :arrow:



It's the certificate hand signed by the Dragon's Lair creators. Only 50 worldwide. Mine is 45/50
It's also written on the box itself :



A.P. stands for Artist Proof

OK, the big opening moment...



...and ...



No problem so far!  :-* OK, the number is also written behind the statue base. 325 is the total of statue made (but only the 50 first are 'Artist Proof')  :arrow:



Let's now fix Daphne on his base, let's add the sword and ... here she is  :arrow:



 :-* :-* :-*

Of course, I'll shoot her close the Dragon's Lair cabinet   8)

Once again, many thanks to Barry 'Sonic 1992' who shipped 'her' from US to Belgium (because it's so fragile, TIKI didn't want to ship outside US...) ... you rock mate!  :-*
