A couple of years ago the cheapest way to get it was from Hong Kong (eBay). Took about a week to arrive.
(ps. Get the big tubes, not the small ones.)

Building a complete armor before halloween? You certainly have your work cut out for you! I hope you have a large supply of magnets and clamps, because there are about ~30 seams to glue (assuming coverstrip method), and E6000 needs 24hours to dry. And this not even counting the ~30 snap plates which also needs to be glued in place.

I was very surprised by the amount of work a build involved.
My kit arrived in May, and I am applying for 501st approval now. :-)

Try shops that sell materials for making your own jewelry and stuff. E6000 is popular for crafts like that.
For example, this company ships to Norway:

I am sure you can find some Norwegian online store that has it as well.

That's most probably a fake E6000. I bought mine from ebay. The real ones look like this, and cost a bit more.

Is that even a thing? The tubes used to look like the one in that store, so I think it's pretty real :P

It's only my guess. More things points to fake than real.

1. E6000 logo usually doesn't look like that.
2. They don't make 0,3fl oz / 9ml bottles.
3. Can't see any serialnumber. It's either on the bottom or vertical on the side.

Crap... Thanks to this I checked my 110ml tube. Fake as a model's smile.

Look at stores that sell parts for making your own jewelery, stones etc... That has been my quickest source through the years.
