We have just learned something that may make the HasLab Jabba’s Sail Barge (The Khetanna) a reality. JTA reader and friend has alerted us to a thread in the forums at Rebelscum. A reader from the UK has SUCCESSFULLY placed an order for the Sail Barge via MyUS.com. Special thanks to JTA reader and friend Nick N. for alerting us to this thread. Hopefully it can help out our UK readeship in some way. Click through for more.
UPDATE: MyUs.com was actually presented by JTA weeks ago. I just forgot about it. Apologies for the confusion. But another example can only help the cause!
OK, I’m in the UK and I successfully ordered a barge last night, here’s how to do it.
Register with MyUS for a USA shipping address. Below is a copy of the message I sent them and their response :
Hello I wonder if you can help me, I want to buy something from the US to be shipped to the UK with specifications : Total length: 49.35″, Total width: 14.64″, Total height 17.01″, Total weight: 13.89 lbs. From your shipping calculator I get quotes from $57.00 USD to $150.00 USD. I suppose I’m just being over precautious but can you reassure me please this isn’t deemed to be an oversized item and so the shipping cost will be within these limits ? Also I need to place a pre-order now for the item and it will be shipped to you when released in 12 months (Feb 2019). What is the best way to proceed please bearing in mind I will have to place an order with a US shipping address in the next few weeks but I won’ be actually using your service for another 12 months. Thank you for your help.
Thank you for your interest in our services. MyUS.com does not have any specific size or weight restrictions. I can confirm that your package will not be considered over sized.
I would suggest signing up for our free SIngle Package Membership now so you have a US address you can enter when you make the pre purchase. There are no monthly or annual charges so you will be able to just enter the address and when the item is released and shipped, it will arrive here and we will email you!
MyUS does not have any limitations on the value of items that you can ship. All shipments are insurable up to their declared value. Insurance rates are based on the declared value of your items. For every $100.00, it is only $2.00 to insure.
We offer the lowest international express shipping rates – up to 80% lower when you utilize our complimentary package consolidation service! You can estimate your shipping costs on our online calculator. We ship express internationally within 1-4 days assuming no delays in customs.

With this in mind I registered, got my address. Bunged it in Haslab and spoke to my credit card to confirm the transaction was legitimate and then paid directly from my credit card. Don’t bother trying with Paypal they detect its a non US account and prevent you going further. Obviously the specifics above are for US > UK but the proceddures the same no matter where you live
Get to it Chaps !!! Lets make this work I want a ruddy 4 foot star destroyer next !!
