Treehugger I see two sellers for about $116 and one seller for $170 on ebay this evening. Presumably, all too high.

Treehugger Sometimes I think the prices on ebay seem a little funny. Low prices and high shipping, or high price, and low shipping. I guess the really interesting price would have to be the sum of the kit price + shipping.

Glenn . Another big model on the way to me at the moment! (Just brought a Airfix Victor and also the Squadron Hanuebu II as well) Will have to drill hundreds of tiny holes in the Star Destroyer and light the hell out of it! got it for $91.08 USD plus around $25 postage. It's a BIG BOX.

Glenn . Just arrived! Very big box! All instructions only in Russian no English (no big deal) it's only a wedge pretty simple to build and nicely detailed. The box states, "WARNING Any sales of this kit outside former USSR are illegal" so don't expect it to turn up in any shops in Europe or the USA. The Disney License must only be for Russia? BUT my guess is that this will get re-boxed by Revell? Like some of the other Zvezda kits eg Boeing 787 and the New tool Mig-29 kit. Just like the Finemoulds Millennium Falcon did

wilky More likely they didn't pay a licence to manufacture. Disney probably have no way of suing in that part of the world

Glenn . I believe they have got a licence from Disney. They also did the movie "Planes" models. So i don't think they would spend all this money tooling it only for Russia!

wilky Was just a thought. If I lived in Russia I would be more worried about buying an actual tank to survive the other drivers than buying kits

EnsignExpendabl I've seen this before with textbooks. There are certain editions made specifically for certain markets where they're sold for less (usually a lot less). That label is there to discourage resellers from buying up all the stock and flipping it for profit in another country. I'm sure official Star Destroyers will come to North America soon enough.

Glenn . Agree, Most likely with a Revell logo on the box i think! I was just worried about a tall heavy breathing "mouse" dressed in black turning up at my doorstep! Karrrrrrrrrr....Heeeeeeee......Karrrrrrrrr......Heeeeeee..... looking for the Star Destroyer
Treehugger I just ordered and paid for this kit off Ebay, but for about $116, which might be more than the final price for all I know. The two sellers do seem legit, but I've never done this before, buying something that isn't already a common item in stores. It looks to me that the two sellers re-listed their items this evening, maybe they are putting up just a few number of kits for sale at a time? Someone warned me about buying this today, so I hope this turns out ok for me.
Treehugger I just got an email confirmation today this Saturday about the item having been shipped. Two days after I placed an order.

Spanjaard it may be entirely legit. i just hope you do not have surprises with customers. i recently order a model from luckymodel.com, nice price (30+ EUR) but because the value was above the threshold of 22EUR, i had to pay the VAT, plus the administration fee.... total 18EUR extra. so the price was basically increased 50%, although was of no fault of the shop.....

Treehugger Yes, for me for buying online, there is a magical price limit I try to stick to, howeve I have decided to overlooked that limit for this one particular kit. So I expect an additional fee of 25% taxes and something equivalent to $17 in customs fee, basically making the kit more expensive.

Spanjaard the only difference between adults and children, is the price of the toys
Treehugger Hm, someone showed a photo in a forum, showing whole hull and with a ruler on the side of it. When I use an image editing tool to adjust the depicted ruler in that photo, the width appear to be about 34,5cm wide.
Treehugger I think this will be a fun project to add styrene to and mess around with. I won't go overboard with detailing it, but I can probably add a few things. Like the garbage shute opening and improving the two domes.
I wonder how I will fit this Star Destroyer in my spray booth for airbrushing. I suppose worst case, would be to do the airbrushing out on the balcony (acrylic paint).
Pavel Pinzhin They do have general Disney license, so, probably, Star Wars are covered by that
Maybe there are regional restrictions though, I'm not sure.
By now they produce pure Disney "Cars" and "Planes" snap-fits, Marvel "Avengers" snap-fits, a magnificent 1/72 Pirates of Caribbean "Black Pearl" (wich is sold abroad Russia as a generic "pirate ship" Black Swan, I believe) - and all of that are licensed products.
