    A plated finish on an inaccurate sculpt will still be more impressive than a spray-paint finish on an accurate idol. Regardless, that still looks like a good copy of the stunt idol... so I wouldn't call it inaccurate..

    And this one isn't too bad. Frown mouth and a tad small but $79 shipped is CHEAP!

    Thanks for sharing, Brad. This is 7” tall, what is the size of the screen used one? If memory serves me correct, the Sideshow idol was 10” tall? It is too good to pass up, even if it is too small.

    Wonder what the shipping cost to Australia will be? Will they even ship to AU or do I have to use my US ShipMate?

    It will probably be quite steep but I doubt the total outlay will come in anywhere as high as getting one of the more expensive ones...
    I'd be interested in hearing if you find out..

    So I chucked it in my cart to check shipping to NZ and... :wacko That's $USD too. Hey, maybe Harrison Ford delivers it personally to your doorstep?

    So this showed up in my inbox just a moment ago. No idea if the discount code is specific to me or not, but I guess anyone that wants 10% off just needs to leave it sitting in their cart for about 30mins.

    If he is delivering, can he bring me a bottle of the JW whisky from BR2049 as well? He can drink the whisky. I just want the bottle.

    On a serious note, it is still under $200AU, so not too bad for such a nice piece. However, if one can reduce the price of shipping, one should.
    Do we know how heavy the idol is and what the rough cubic volume is? Maybe SHIPMATE might be less, but I would need to know volume and weight to find out.

    When added to the cart, I got

    That really is a great price, for sure. Just out of curiosity, I wonder how much it weighs? The ‘Sideshow’ Idol was a surprisingly heavy piece for it’s size. (Not that that means anything one way or the other. If it looks cool on a shelf, that’s really all that matters.) I’ll probably be picking one up too, myself. (A person can never have too many Fertility Idols after all.)

    It sounds like it will have a nice weight based upon the description:

    "The Fertility Idol packs some weight, feeling like a real golden treasure when picked up. It’s also a robust piece, measuring 7-inches tall and fitting nicely in the palm of your hand."

    So I asked Toynk and they said it's about 2.3 pounds - or just a hair over 1kg.

    It's 7" tall, I figure about 4.5" wide... Let's just say the box is around the same size.

    For Aussies, Shopmate has shipping at AUD 32.85.
    For Kiwis, YouShop has it at $22.00 or $16.00 depending on how long you want to wait.
    Either is a big saving on $62 USD!

    *scratches chin* I think I'd better wait until next pay day to buy a [strike]toy[/strike] thing I don't need but really want.

    I read about this a few days ago and was going to post it here but couldn't find the article again. Glad this is getting some positive response. I thought it looked pretty good. I might have to pick one up just for the heck of it.

    Actually, no, it didn’t get past me in that I did see and read that particular Post, but because of the fact that the word “toynk” was used in the link, I simply thought (incorrectly, as it turns out) that it was just someone making reference to the original link that Brad had posted before and then commenting on the fact that there were some different photos on that particular site other than just the ones that were in the first Post (in case people might not be aware, and were possibly under the impression that the 4 Pictures in Brad’s initial Post were, in fact, all that were available to be seen).

    The actual link that I posted, while containing ultimately the same information, is technically the link for the Original Review that the other site was referencing. If I thought that I was just ‘reposting’ the same old info, then I clearly wouldn’t have bothered. My mistake. I apologize for my oversight and false assumption. Technically speaking though, I was simply trying to add something productive and relevant to the conversation that might benefit other RPF’ers, Armando. What were you doing, other than continuing on in your long-running tradition of being the self-appointed ‘Hall Monitor’ of the RPF? One would hope that you’d grow weary of the position eventually. One would hope.

    MOD EDIT: Please do not post ebay links, thanks.

    Nice find...but how much is it smaller like a real hero idol from the movie?
    And has it really the same size like the stuntversion?

    Yeah, it's a bit smaller but man! A weighted, plated idol for 79.00 plus free shipping is hard to resist. Plus, 99 percent of the people who see it will not know the difference.
    I am a bit concerned about it being so top heavy.

    Thank you for posting this! I've always wanted one but I could never justify shelling out the money for a screen accurate one. This one is a really close look a like and at that price it was a no brianer. I got mine yesterday and it goes perfectly with my Indy Gear and on display. Thank you again for posting this!

    Thanks for the post, just picked one up there myself, also did the wait in the checkout for the extra 10% code, which worked. They send a unique code to each person that holds an item in the checkout.

    Mine came in yesterday. I gotta tell you, it's not bad at all. To US, yes, you can tell that it's a bit smaller. But to anybody else it's spot on. The gold chrome is perfect and cold to the touch. It does have weight but not "heavy". For 79.00... It's worth every penny!
