Add 20% V.A.T. and may be some customs duties and it probably just about beats your local reseller, but is still expensive. We are relatively lucky to this point that Lovehoney in the UK the price is 749 and they often do discount promotions of at least 20% to email subscribers. Unfortunately they appear to be running down and maybe stopping selling as they only have Lisa on their site now.
749 is 840 here, an Hinata, my Akiko Deluxe cost me 560 + 10 S/H from Love Honey a few years ago...

A lot of French do not use English, it's leant, unused and forgot.

Gave me bad feeling, Teddy Babes Standards are not available at 8W for a while, still available in Germany but not in stock ...

Wulfie and I did this back a few years ago to get our Deluxe Vamp girls, they weren't available anywhere but direct from 8W or through the Canadian TB store. We ordered through Midi's Canadian TB store but the dolls were shipped to us direct from 8W.

So if you can find someone else who wants one at the same time as you, you can save significantly on shipping by placing a joint order with a single delivery address, you may even be able to negotiate discount for buying two.

However it's been my experience that all my imports from the US get taxed, sometimes you get lucky with Chinese imports but I've never been lucky taxwise with anything from the US. Even small packages like Abyss doll repair kits got hit with 'the dreaded', even worse when the PO are the deliverers as they add their own costs to the amount payable.

YMMV

Thanks CT - very interesting to hear about your experience of ordering via 8W. The possibility of delivery sharing would make that less of an issue. If it gets to the point of no UK stockist and any of us want/need a new babe, I guess one of us can start a thread polling for other interested parties.

While the TB Ultras might be better for those who prefer a more realistic face I prefer the cartoonish look of the original TBs. One of the new models I do like the look of is Cordelia.

Nice to see another vamp in the line up too.

I must have a thing for Goth/Vamp girls.

I do like Cordelia Goth Girl, but, i don't like Nathasha.

Sometime i want yo make may own vamp mouth, It d be closed, Dark Red or black, and or course fangs. (Add Cordelia's mouth two fangs...)

Custom eyes would not be a big issue here.

Yes I like cordelia goth girl totally beautiful, but Natasha i am not sure about.

But I do like one of the ultra faces(Sheba) , and it seems I am a bit on my own with that one.

I agree with the opinions expressed - Cordelia, yes but (sorry) Natasha, no although I'm sure that she is very nice....for a vamp!

Teddy Babe Ultra aside, I am loving the new range of girls in the Teddy Babe Deluxe department though, http://teddy-babes.com/cadavra-deluxe/ is an interesting design for sure.

http://teddy-babes.com/amber-deluxe/ Amber is taking my fancy, Lisa has an annoyed look on her face right now though....

Default New Girls!

Yes! But I guess we won't be seeing them sold here. I do like the smaller breasted ladies and Cordelia would be a good squeeze but that Cadavra - erm! no thanks! and anyway Kat is pretty possesive and jealous anyway.
