Total price: Item + shipping $295.98

Shipping works out at $75.99 (59.40)

To add to this there is the import charge. 20% being the norm.

Neat set up!

My Whisper (reg) should arrive this week. I got a great deal at BBTS. I hope some day to bag a Whisper red for a good price in the future at some point.

Good news - Whisper arrived today
Bad news - broken in two places (arm & foot off)

The box was in perfect undamaged shape. Wrapped in bubble-wrap inside a BigBadToyStore shipper.
Unlike Sideshow who use DHL who take 2 - 3 days to deliver, Whisper came via USPS, Parcel Force, and took 2 weeks. It's been on quite journey, depot to depot. I'm sure this does not help.

Gentle Giant need to improve their packaging.
Sideshow, XM, Weta, HMO, Yamato, PCS, Prime 1, none arrive broken (bar one from Sideshow - Gamora, one of the blue base crystal shards).

Sorry to hear this. You can get her seamlessly repaired though...

I'd rather they replaced it. The foot to leg area is all smooth skin color. A repair would be noticeable.

That sucks! If I were to ever sell my Whisper Variant Id likely never ship it and opt for local pickup only. Such a fragile piece, Id never trust itd arrive safely.

I noticed that my Whisper is now leaning. I had to raise one side of her base.
