When Marie Laveau first brought her beloved titanoboa, Opie, to the fleshcrafter Augusta Byron, the aim was to save the creature’s life. Having been mortally wounded in a clash with Dylan Callus, this rare creature now lay dying on Byron’s surgical table. Such an unusual biology caused Byron to relish the task ahead of her. She laboured long into the night, pausing mid-procedure only to replace one of her own hands when the confused and poorly sedated serpent lashed out and severed it.
As the surgery entered its second evening, Byron was satisfied that not only would Creation VIII live, but that the improvements made would substantially increase the creature’s strength, speed and resilience. At first Laveau was apprehensive at the substantial transformation her pet had endured. But seeing that the serpent’s ferocity and new found lethality was switched off in favour of Opie’s familiar submission and tenderness when by her side, Laveau soon prized him above all her other servants. Grateful for Byron’s efforts, Laveau permitted the Countess to replicate the process on future titanoboas she procured and divided the profits equally. Regrettably, as is often the case with experimental engineering, the prototype differs greatly from the final product. In the case of Creation VIII the exact process could never be replicated as successfully in later versions, partly because of the cost and complexity, but also because none of the future specimens delivered to Byron was ever as intelligent or massive as Opie.
Creation VIII remains the first and greatest of its kind. At his mistresses command, Opie is unleashed against her enemies, entertaining the Nazombu Queen as she listens to the victim’s bones crunching as they are slowly crushed and digested within the titanoboa.

Although Royal Mail sees Europe as one big lump regarding costs, couriers don't. So at the moment, we have Airmail and Surface Mail available with various courier options being added daily to the webstore. If our system doesn't show you a courier quote for your address, please Contact Us and we will get you a quote.
Please note that any item over 2Kg not sent by courier will be split into 2 or more packages.
Australia and New Zealand:
Any orders over £200 will begin to take advantage of subsidised courier shipping. The subsidy grows the more you spend. Australia and New Zealand are very expensive to ship parcels to, but we will do our best to offer the best deal possible.
Airmail and Surface Mail options are available. However, be warned that 12 weeks is the quoted time for a parcel to reach you by the Surface option. Both include insurance. These services have a 2Kg weight limit. Again as per Europe, we are able to split the order into multiple parcels. Therefore if Surface/Airmail is chosen, please be aware that any single item over 2Kg may have been opened and spread between the packages.
Rest Of The World:
For the rest of the world both Surface and Airmail, options are available, with couriers being added all the time. If you know of any alternative shipping carriers that can give us great rates then please let us know!
If an order is sent Via Airmail, it may be separated into multiple shipments as there is a 2kg weight limit, as well as size limits on our Airmail service. Please don't be alarmed if you receive a small package that only contains part of your order. You will be receiving the rest of your order in another package or multiple packages. Airmail generally does not allow for parcels to be tracked unless you have specifically paid for a tracked service.
Aerosols cannot be sent by Air or surface shipping postage and can only be shipped by surface courier service where applicable when ordered. This is because of the air trapped within a pressurised container which has a tendency to explode due to the decreased air pressure at high altitudes.
Regretfully we are unable to ship to addresses in Brazil, Russia, South Africa, Zimbabwe and Swaziland. Orders made to these locations will be cancelled and refunded.
