Wow.    I had no idea that for unknown reasons, this has evolved into an art form over in Germany.

They are for real.  If you start digging around, they seem as common as hirail trucks are over here, or some of the Model T adaptations from previous generations.

I'm tempted to order one just to see what I drop onto it.

If you find any available on an English-language PayPal site, PM me.   I can't find any.  Out of stock as soon as announced.

There's no way I can resist anything inexplicably tiny like that.   Even if I had to paint it up like it was headed to the Summer of Love, the hard way - hirail!

Nothing there.

Found them, and in-stock, on Conrad (Austria).   But now I know how everybody else feels about us.....

"However, if you live in the US or Canada, would like to purchase one of our products and have friends or acquaintance overseas, why not ask them to order on your behalf?
 Apart from the USA and Canada, we ship to almost every other country on the planet. "

Wow, I can have it shipped to the Ukraine, but not here.

They can keep their stuff!


Hmm... uh oh, Kiz is

Two scientists create a teleportation ray, and they try it out on a cricket. They put the cricket on one of the two teleportation pads in the room, and they turn the ray on.
The cricket jumps across the room onto the other pad.

That's weird!  Usually is the other way around.

Wow, I really want one... but when I can't figure out how much it costs that's a buzzkill.

The funny part is, of course, that when I list on Ebay suddenly I find they have auto-populated it all over the planet, and if I don't, some other stupid third-party service does it for me and I have to ship to a service on a dock.   Which I didn't appreciate.   Now when I really wish there was a similar reciprocal agreement, cut to crickets chirping.

I guess I never really appreciated Plaza Japan before as much as I do this moment.   They sure make life easy for the Japanese N stuff, particularly outfits like Tomytec that are just completely clueless of how to sell to the US market.

I've shipped to Russia, and have one I'm working on to the UAE, so I think I've earned the right to an opinion!

I'm sure somebody will crack this one.... I'm pretty sure that button means "Buy it now" in German, and...yeah....

Clarify this for me... you can't list your items for US sales only any more? They now force international?

The angst of this thread is a bit humorous in an wonderfully ironic way, viewed through the lens of someone living outside of the US.  Welcome to our world.   :lol:
