    Magnificent 1/1 Gizmo replica from French artist Ultimaratio.Real fur,acrylic eyes,beautifully casted resin parts,eye-lashes,a pro paint apllication and a 'cute factor' to die for! :)
    A COA was not provided but I can tell you that the run for this Gizmo was 8 pieces.To me this is the best Gizmo replica from Gremlins 2.
    The little guy will be securely packed.This is a EU sell only.
    asking price = 650 euros,shipment included.
    For any questions you can contact me through the conversation feature.Thanks.

    Just wanted to clarify why I will never,ever sent something again across the Atlantic...Dennis just received the Selene bust and it is nothing short than a miracle Selene herself is undamaged!Dennis has sent me pictures of the box and it came in soaking wet and crushed!Luckily I re-inforced the box with extra padding and extra pieces of board all around which made the box very sturdy...can you imagine the result otherwise?What a bunch of postal service morons!Do they leave boxes outside in the rain?Incomprehensible the treatment these boxes are getting.Never had a problem inside the EU.This was my first and my last shipment outside the EU.Thank god Dennis can add this piece of art to his fantastic collection!

    Trust me Phil you can get unlucky where ever you send something ,I even get my stuff from my retailer put on a pallet now because couriers don't care no mater how many fragile stickers you put on lol.

    Thanks Zhong! ;)

    Otto,I've posted like 30 packages inside the EU in the last ten years or so and every single box arrived in the same condition as it has been sent out,not wet,not crushed,not beaten up,etc....I sent out 1 very sturdy box outside the EU and it arrives in the most horrible condition imaginable.Then Dennis is telling me that another box he received from France was in a similar condition.I don't know exactly where it goes wrong but it leaves me with zero confidence to do this ever again...Anyway,I'm so relieved the bust itself arrived in perfect condition.

    The main thing is it arrived and the bust is ok, lucky some collectors like you pack stuff the best they can.

    I have seen Phil's Gizmo in person and he looks superb. Everything on that little guy looks great ( hair, hands, feet and asp eyes). Looks just like in the movie.

    Regular post service Karim,not a private courrier.So it is USPS taking over across the Atlantic I guess.
    Never had anything to complain inside the EU.

    For shippings inside the EU the regular postal service in good enough but be sure to use EMS !
    For worldwide shipping you can also use EMS but only for small boxes , for bigger boxes it's better to use a private courrier like fedex or dhl .
