    Noticed this elsewhere, seems like a great deal. I have been looking for it over the past couple of days and the beest I found was £25 delivered before customs!

    Doh! Just got the version without the collectors tin for $19.99 from Target, would have plumped for the extra and crossed my fingers that Amazon delivered it before I came back if I'd known :mad:

    Limit is the sames everywhere from States, $35.48 until end of Feb.

    Last couple of bits I got from Amazon US have come through with no charge, but if you dont want to risk it, Axel have it for £6 more delivered which is less than customs & handling if you stung on Amazon order :smashin:
