Default Help me to get a rock 'em sock 'em

Allright,

So this friend of mine has been ranting on about a Rock 'em Sock 'em for years and I like to get him one.
These things aren't available in the Netherlands at all

Is someone here willing to buy me one and ship it to the Netherlands?
I'm not sure what this will cost, but I guess it shouldn't be all that much.

Thanks

The new version pales in comparison to the original. My friends kid bought one and it broke within weeks of purchasing it. They generally run about 19.99. And no i don't want to send one to the netherlands to a complete stranger.

Haha, check my post count
If I'm a stranger to you, then you probably missed out on something

And err, about the sturdiness of the thing; How rough are these kids?
And do you still find the original one in thrift stores or yardsales?

The originals can be had on Ebay. Probably run hundreds of dollars. They were made out of metal you could crush your friends skull with which made them oodles of fun along with chucking hot wheels made of steel. Buy him a green machine instead the orginal green machine.

The main problem is always gonna be shipping. To ship that bulk rate even via air parcel post would probably run you over 60 dollars. Shipping companies are out of their minds recently with the cost of fuel/petrol.

You can't just order yourself on Ebay?
The new versions are absolute garbage, not worth the $20. I bought one not to long ago for my little cousin as a gift, one of the heads got jammed in a couple of plays, and he is 6 years old. It's cheap plastic, and it will break if touched by anyone over the age of 12.

Oh, and your post count doesn't make you any less a stranger than someone with 1 post.

$20 for that??? Wow. To send one to you would cost me anywhere between $80 - $100 dollars (about 58 - 73 euros) via airmail. So I'll have to decline, sorry!

That much? Are you sure?
I see costs between 20 and 30 bucks, but that's too much as well.
Petty . I thought it was cheaper to send such a thing.
Ah well, not going to happen then.
Anyone going to the NEtherlands anytime soon?
