    Anybody know where I can get one of these in the states? A friend of mine had one but her aunt picked it up for her on a trip to London at some point. I haven't seen one here though. But, I wants one! :shock:

    When I first saw Mr. Flibble, I thought it was the Linux penguin.

    http://www.thinkgeek.com/geektoys/plush/288e/



    But hey, it can't be the actual Linux penguin, because Holly and Rimmer are programmed in COBOL.

    (*** ducks and runs away really fast ***)

    (***pops in a again for a bit***)

    And Kryten runs on a combo of binary and BASIC.

    (***runs away***)

    If you find out, do let me know. I think there are a few internet retailers in the UK that ship to the rest of Europe (which is where I'm assuming you are from? Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong) for a reasonable price. Unfortunately the few ones I've seen don't ship to the USA at all.

    Michule...

    I'm bringing mine to England as we record the trip for a v-log for my site! I got mine through ebay a few years ago. Hilarious item! Only thing is that his eyes keep lighting up at night and telling me to do things......... ;-)

    Be Seeing You!

    Yeah!

    They do look similar:

    Mr. Flibble:

    Now they may look similar, but if you look at pixel 125, 156, the second one contains a hologramattic virus :twisted:

    and btw ...

    COBOL?????????????? BASIC ???????????????

    Maybe in an alternate dimension .... :lol:

    Well I've found some e-shops, which have Mr. Flibble puppet, but they have it sold out.
    I come from Czech republic. I know, that some e-shops don't send items to my region but they send it to Austria and I have friends there so it's not problem with sending. However I hope that they will sell it again because I really want to buy Mr. Flibble even if I don't know where...

    Sorry for my English, if there are any mistakes. :lol:

    Bye

    Everywhere ive looked at is sold out :crying:

    Have sent an email to the guys who make it asking if they plan on doing another production run.

    Hopefully with all the new Dwarf interest with the new series they will be.

    I really want a Mr Flibble puppet.
    You'd think with 'Back to Earth' these places would've done some new runs of classic RD items!

    Wasnt rimmers tool kit a re-run? That seemed to do well enough, so I cant see why Mr flibble cant have the same thing done. Does anyone kow if T-2 are still going? For those who have emailed let us know if you get a reply so we can all email them.:-D
