RSOddy managed to get out of the cave… Wow, so impressive (10)
Default Oddworld Abe Figure

Hello

I hope I'm in the right forum. I am an Oddworld fan and would like to buy a figure.
I found a figure: https://www.ebay.de/itm/Oddworld-Abe...s/113199337341
Unfortunately I do not live in Germany.
Is there a possibility to send this figure from Germany to another country via one person?

Thanks

You're right. And where's the tattoo of Abe's Exoddus on his chest?

He doesn't know, hence he's shrugging.

He can't have tattoos at this point, he hasn't yet reached Scrabania

i'm not sure i understand the question. are you asking if it's possible to send this figure to someone in Germany, then get that person to send it to you?

He's saying that he hopes we have a member in Germany who he could post it to, who would forward it on to him. I don't think we have any German members.

Have you tried messaging the seller? Sometimes they're prepared to ship it elsewhere if you ask nicely.


Also... I've never seen Abe look so pissed as in that figurine.

No, but Xorlidyr lives in Germany, he might be able to contact him about it.

I asked the seller, but he only ships within Germany.

Unfortunately, if the seller confirmed in PM that he only ships to Germany, you can't do anything about it, unless you convince someone in Germany to buy it and send it for you, but it means increased costs

Well it isn't, as people have just pointed out, it's missing various details.

yeah maybe so. he'll probably send him a video of him dancing around with fairy wings or some shit, but that's the price he'll have to pay if he wants that figure.

a steep price

There are companies that forward mail for situations like this. It will add a lot to the price though so only for times when you desperately want it.
Edit: Although 50 euros for something that costs 500 euros isn't much of an inconvenience.

I tried to do something similar for an item from the USA but, as the item was prohibited to be in the mail in Australia, I had to organise the intermediary to return to sender.

There are literally so many items that cannot be sent to Australia. My thing was probably the least weird of them all... (the 32 sheet)
