Adult size would be 8 centimeter, so that's like L144.
You could pick them up at my place, just take the ferry to Rotterdam and i'll pick you up :wink:

They still are available in germany, i still didn't get some due to spaceproblems (and getting 10 young L260 in tomorrow).
Look here they are available for 3 euro:

Only problem is getting them to the UK.
