I think a lot of stuff sold in the US isn't the same as things sold and made in Germany. The product might look the same, but it is not the same product! Sometimes that really cheap US market product - there IS a reason why its cheaper in the US market vs German market. And sometimes not. You just have to be careful when buying things.
I think you are right... I will buy the Rubberduck in Germany
