I agree, the statue is a WOW and I was even fine to pre-order it, it's just $350 for huge and awesome piece of art. But since Sideshow doesn't ship from Europe for European buyers, fees in Croatia would kill me. With transport and everything, probably over $600.

What about customs fees in France? If you're importing the statue from US, it could get charged by customes. Or not if you are lucky.
In Croatia it's like 10% on item+shipping price plus 25% VAT on item + shipping + custom fee plus some other "manipulative" costs. $600 is roundly the correct price after the country takes it's share.

Znam te muke prijatelju. Ista stvar je i u Srbiji.


Gary,

Has the statue been postponed to Jul 2017 - Sep 2017? At least that's the information from Sideshow store.
Initial arrival date was Apr 2017 - May 2017.

Yes Gary mentioned that it has been pushed back to allow extra time for tooling as they want to keep the accessories separate.

Yes, indeed. I thought it was important to maintain look of "movement" and while it would have been cheaper and easier to sculpt a lot of the parts onto the characters...like the holsters, bandolier, grenades, etc., it just would have looked weird to have those elements hug the body during a fight like this. Some of those parts were just too thin to make out of polystone, so we need to make them using injection molded plastic. It can take 30-40 days to make the tooling for that. Also, because of the pose, I wanted to make sure the armature would hold up so your statue wouldn't warp due to the Shoreline soldier supporting Drake's weight. Basically, I want to get this statue right, so I need some extra time to achieve that (we decided to make a second connection point to ensure the structural integrity of the piece).

Thanks,
Gary

Thanks for the detailed explanation Gary!

I'm excited for this piece and it's always extra special to hear thoughts from the people who worked on the statues. Gives the statue a nice backstory rather than being 'just another statue'.

I feel like this source is incomplete. I'll tell you how it works in Canada:
https://www.crossbordershopping.ca/d...iffs-and-taxes
There are way more categories than the four ones in your source. You should be able to classify mostly any item in the categories given which is the case with my source but not with yours.

Anyways, it seems like these limited collectibles statues are consirered as ''statuary'' and are classified in the category 5 in Canada, which means a 15% tax (canadian GST/HST /PST) and no duty, no matter where you import from.
The company that ships the item will also ask for some brokerage fees, which is basically a fee for paying the customs fees in advance for you. Canada post is a flat 10 CAD, but when it comes to UPS and FedEx...beware with that, especially if it is ground shipping.

The best is to contact customs before buying the item and ask them how much it will cost if the item get hit to customs (which is very likely to happen due to the size of that statue). Where it is coming from, what type of merchandise it is and who is shipping it will influence the final cost.

Sideshow is now listing the Edition Size at 750..
https://www.sideshowtoy.com/collecti...merica-902863/

I'm very sure it was 1500 when announced. Not sure why it got slashed.
Anyone else knows if the Playstation Gear store reflects the same change?

Hopefully Gary can come in to reply..
