Unless of course you live in Germany, then you can find them for less than 20 euros. Most auctions from there won't ship overseas.

Mine took a few years to find, and it wasn't cheap.

Don't feel bad, Briebee7210. A Rubik's Rabbits puzzle is relatively rare. And as Rox is fond of saying, a puzzle is worth whatever you're willing to pay for it. If you feel all right about the price, then it doesn't matter what others think.

I wouldn't consider $100 USD to be too much for this puzzle. However, I've overpaid for a few puzzles in my time, so I may not be the best guide in that area. :)

Oh I know, if ya want it you want it. Its all what its worth to ya. I guess its all how you look at it 100 for a fairly rare puzzle you dont see all the time or 100 bucks that people pay for the C4U teraminx lol . HUm wonder what one I would rather have? lol. Now if i could only read and bid in german lol I see lots of puzzles I would want.

I think we all do that from time to time :).
Personally I think 99$ it's a fair price for a Rubik's Rabbit. I bought one last year for a similar price...but in original packaging :mrgreen: ...and I've only seen in it once with packaging too...so I guess it's even more rare like that.

C'mon it's not that easy.
I have paid a little bit more than that for my two Rabbits. :mrgreen:

Yeah I have to agree tha puzzles from Germany aren't that much cheaper. I have gotten several puzzles from Germany,granted you may find some puzzles easier in germany then in the u.s. but by time you pay conversions, shipping ,and wait weeks for it, you have paid just about the same as you would have paid for it from any where else.

PLus like most have said most German auctions wont ship to the u.s., heck most wont even answer you question if they will ship to the u.s. but am sure that is just a language barrier nothing more.

I have seen a few German puzzle auctions i would have killed for but, they just would not ship to the u.s.

also most of their auctions are blocked from u.s. bids anyway so you cant even bid on them if you wanted too.
