Dear PSB brains trust,
Does anyone have an idea or know exactly where I can buy the Kotobukiya Death Star silicone mould in Perth, preferably NOR?
81023


I've tried Toys'R'Us, Gametraders, Target and K'mart to no avail :(
I can get one eBay for around $20 - $25 but the RRP seems to be about the same and I also wouldn't have to wait.

Cheers.

ThinkGeek sell them- but they are based in America.
I'd try National Geographic- as weird as that sounds I got space invader fridge magnets there and they do silicone ice cube trays for space invaders...

Thanks Twigs, checked the website and found the Space Invaders ice tray and even Pacman trays but no Death Star :(, will check instore to be sure.

And Desmo, I checked hobbydream.com.au but nothing I'm afraid.

Thanks for your help.

Anything else your missing in your life that's star wars related....
I bought some things that are yet to turn up and they gave me a full refund because of the lateness.....
I hope they do eventually get here....

That's my problem Desmo, usually I have the patience to wait for items from overseas, not this thing. And I don't see it being any more expensive then say $15 - $20 in a store, $25 tops.
Finding one to buy isn't the hassle, finding one locally is.

Could you get it expressed shipped?

My last resort will be from overseas, hoping to get one before I go back to work though.
Either I'm not looking properly but I can't even find them in Australian online stores.
Going out now to look, will let you all know how it goes.

Clever idea though.

I agree with there customer service, contacted them about a late package, which still hasn't arrived I ordered last month. They were more than happy to give me a full refund :) I just really hope the package arrives- it'd be an added bonus!

Desmo

It's not their fault, anything from the US in the 2 months leading up to Christmas take a month or more to get here.
If it arrives, I'd do them the good service of paying for the goods.

I only asked about it and received a full refund. But don't worry- I will buy from them again- they have some wicked stuff on there :)
I've gotten so many people onto the website at work with geeky boyfriends and husbands, or themselves. I need to buy some pressies for the office- the people I work with are great people :)

Just arrived in the mail.
Fill with 100mls of water and in the freezer for 6 hours, though I cheated by adding 3 ice-cubes and filling with cold water.
Makes a Death Star 55mm in diameter.

There's plenty on eBay, can be had for less than $22.
Bought mine last Monday and got it yesterday. That's only 8 working days from the UK.

Past the novelty, now perfecting the art of making it as clear as possible.
