Is there only one variant of reproduction of the statue? Only this one?:

Or there are several different reproductions around the same size?

At the Bazar Suisse in Montreux they sell those statue replicas: http://www.bazarsuisse.ch/sm12.jpg

It's the official store for these items, located close by the original statue. They also organize the Freddie Mercury Montreux Memorial Day.

Contact them and ask about ordering if you are seriously interested: http://www.bazarsuisse.ch/contact.html

The website with all the Queen/Freddie items can be found here: http://www.bazarsuisse.ch/freddie.html

I have one also and it's gorgeous!

Good luck!

Thank you guys and thank you, Johnnie. Yeah, of course, I want only this official Switzerland replica. But I'm just afraid of existing several different replicas besides the official. So, there is no other fake (alternative) replicas? All those at ebay are official and the same?!

I don't know, give us a link to an ebay one and we'll compare the pics for you.

But since you-re presumably blind, why would you want one anyway?

I just gave you the address where you can get the originals. The store is maybe 100 meters away from the statue and the owner even gives you papers of authenticity if you buy the replica.

What more do you want, I wonder?

399 Swiss frank is about 190 Pounds.

Meaning that for some more money you are sure you have the original official replica AND a papers of authenticity!

Way, way long ago there were also darker versions of the statue, in the same colour as the "real" one. The one you mentioned is silver-like, the one I have (and bought like last century) is dark brown and does not have the big rectangular base it stands one but a much lower circle.... They came from the same store already mentioned in replies, also with certificate. Not sure if they are available anywhere else anymore.
