34"/3 Foot Bobble Buddies
« on: April 11, 2006, 02:09 PM »
I just got a new wholesale catalogue and in them are the usual bobble buddies except this time they have a new height 3 Foot!
The Wholesale price on them is £25 so I'd imagine you'd be looking at around £40-£50 for retail price.

I''ve ordered one of the R2d2's to see what there like.
I can't find any pics of these I'll post one when mine arrives but I did find a pic of a 3ft tall buffy one to give you an idea what there going to be like:

3 feet tall!  Nice.  The Vader looks sweet.  Considering they're that tall, those prices aren't bad.

I've been doing a little research and the R2D2 is actually quite close to 1:1 scale. One website says the measurments are 3' 2" while another said 3' 5". Yoda is just about spot on for being life size.

There made in the U.K by a company called Cards Inc. I havent found any sites to order them from however and I was looking for quite awhile for pics etc before i ordered the R2D2.
I'm able to order them as I have retail premises and a Cards Inc account for buying things at wholesale prices.
Where abouts are you located Jim as I could order one for you but you'd be looking at around a month before I place an order as I placed a very large one with them today.
I'm not sure what postage costs would be as I'd imagine they'd be quite heavy.
If your interested I'll weigh the R2 when it arrives and give you a rough estimate of what you'd be looking at for postage.

Kirk, I'm interested in a Vader as well (I live in Canada).  Please let me know a (rough) price for shipping to help me determine if I can afford one.  Thanks!

Kirk - are you located in the States?

Edit:  I see (in your profile) that you're in England.

Once the R2 Arrives I'll weigh him and get an estimate from the post office on P&P costs.... be warned though that Buffy one is on ebay and the postage for the states on that is $45 and thats located in the states, so it could be costly but I'll let you know as soon as R2 arrives.

Recieved a phone call today to tell me my 3' Vader's and R2D2's were coming tommorow... I then recieved another saying she got it wrong and there no longer avaliable..... I guess we'll never know what these strange contractions would have looked like.
