    I'm gonna see about ordering one if it isn't uber expensive to ship it. Too bad my dad no longer applies for an employee discount.

    Do note that its available on the UK Chevy store and so for anyone in the US hoping to order one there will be a hefty shipping charge involved. Still cheaper than you'll get on ebay though so long as the US Chevy store doesn't end up selling them too.

    Cool, thanks for the heads up.
    That store ships worldwide too, I just ordered one for 21euros with standard ups shipping to the UK which is about £16.


    Really, I can't even find a UK store on the chevrolet.co.uk page, wa sit much cheaper then what I just paid...

    Just checked... After shipping it will be around $45, give or take. Too rich for my blood, especially since I can't get a discount of any sort even though I can get all the needed info for one.

    I'm hoping that Hasbro will release him in the Classics 2.0 line. That will make him a lot cheaper, not to mention far easier to obtain. Wasn't there a mention of a yellow version of this toy too?

    Hahhaha so it ends up being on sale on the site themselves, I laugh at the ones who paid so much on eBay.

    I'm not sure what you guys were looking at but the currency conversion I saw changed the total from about 46 euros to 76 US dollars.

    When I opened the link that had been posted there was already 3 of these in the online basket. Anyone else get that?

    How strange, thanks for letting me know. I've tried fixing it, is it working properly now?

    Edit--I think it will work right now! :D

    Yeah. I was thinking "wtf" then I re-calculated it.
    It was 12.8 Euros for the figure, 16 Euros to ship it. Just double checked that.

    According to xe.com, my assumption of $45 was damn near correct.

    Sorry, I'm a bit confused here. This isn't actually a new Universe/Classics mold, is it? I thought this was one of the add-on figures designed for the Movie line...?

    What's this about a 35 Euro documentation fee on top of the international shipping? I was all set to push the button, but the lack of concrete total scared me off. I don't mind the international shipping charge since I was going to order two, but not if there's another $50 tacked on.

    BTW, to make it real easy, the Euro is currently just over $1.50US. Just multiply everything by 1.5 to put it in rough dollars.

    It's a promotional item that Hasbro made exclusively for Chevrolet, it's deluxe size or thereabouts. I doubt we'll see it in Universe, it's too generic looking not to mention having an actual car makers badge on it front & center.

    There is some sort of fee for shipping internationally (on top of the shipping cost) of 25 pounds which means an extra $50 USD on top of the cost of the figure and the shipping. I was about to order too til I saw that. It looks to be a 1 time only fee though so maybe if we can all get together to place one order we can save money.

    No such fee was mentioned when I made my order, perhaps this is just for those outside of europe.

    Here's what comes up when you tell 'em you want it shipped to the States:

    Now..if you read that one way, it sounds like the €35 charge is a catch-all charge intended to more than cover shipping, customs and any other international shipping costs that will apply and the amount will be adjusted when that total is actually determined. Or it could just be "we're gonna charge an extra $50 on top of everything else to ship it to you damn Americans with your toys and your music."
