    Have you tried the sites in the first post? I got mine from r2dtoys here in the UK when I went to the London Film & Comic Con show. They had a few on sale in their booth. I forget what I paid for it though, but I got a discount since I know the guys and buy quite a bit from them.

    Have you actually ordered from them?

    (And their price for the Fett blaster is still too rich for me, especially once shipping & customs is factored in...)

    Has anyone ordered anything from TheSaberVault recently? How are they with orders for their lightsabers?

    I've never ordered from them but I believe they have been discussed favorably over in the
    Force FX thread..

    I know I might have asked a long time ago but why does fett have red gauntlets then green then red again??
    should it have been green,green then red?

    Which Fett do you mean? The vintage one, potf2, saga?

    Anyway, just wanted to say R2DToys.com is ok in my book. My first order with them (early this year) didn't go quite well at first, but they solved it in a very professional nice way. My second order (three Koto models) went superb! =D=.

    I'm thinking about ordering some loot from rebelscum but have never done this online.
    Is rebelscum a good company to order from?

    Forgive my last question about Fetts gauntlets, wrong thread. Sorry.

    (fetttk421 was me, trying to eradicate it)

    Rebelscum have a classified section and they have ads for other sources, but I don't think they actually sell stuff (unless that is new, or we are talking about 2 different rebelscums..)

    I have just placed an order with http://www.staractionfigures.co.uk. I found them through Amazon UK, but the shipping costs were too high, I thought. They replied I should order directly from their site to safe on shipping and they were so kind as to cancel my order from Amazon. I immediately order from their site. I'll let you know when the figures arrive, but already they offer great service.

    I got my order from staractionfigures.co.uk today. They're o.k. in my book. Prompt replies to e-mails and very helpful, even to new customers. Too bad they raised the price on the Galactic Marine by a quid, though [face_plain]

    I hate to do this, but I am adding a warning about r2dtoys here in the UK. They have been going through quite a few problems due to staff issues. There has been a thread about the issues here on Rebelscum. However, it has culminated with John (the owner) getting angry at someone complaining there. Philip Wise (Rebelscum and TFN owner) has locked the thread and suspended John's user id. Their website has been down for a redesign and PayPal has stopped taking eBay payments for them. Some people haven't received items, nor are they getting customer support.

    I've met John a few times, and I'm sorry to see this happen. I hope he gets things back together but until that happens I have to warn against placing orders with them.

    (Note - minor language warning for the thread).

    I've got two ideas/questions.

    1. Would it be possible to add a section for Germany as well? I know that Amazon is a very good and reliable online-shop. Ebay is working very well for me, too. And Toys'r'us is a good shop as well, but I don't know if that counts, because there's no online shop as far as I know. Maybe I can find out another page (can't remember the name right now), if a new section will be added. :)

    2. Would it be a good idea to add colors to the list on the first page? I think of a traffic light, although there won't be any red, of course, because you delete those from the list. :p But maybe giving 'yellow/orange' to those who got a warning like r2dtoys above. What do you think?

    :)
