    Oh man, that looks pretty sweet.

    Anybody order from Lasers Edge before? I assume that's in US dollars.

    DVDSoon has this on pre-order for $82 CAN. With their free shipping, this is a great deal too. Course, customs is still a problem.

    BTW, this should probably be in the Bargains forum.

    i want one of these - nice spot :smashin:

    £32.95 at todays rates (dvdsoon). Can someone say how much that would be if customs DID get hold of it?

    (now we need a nice similar boxset for all the chris lee dracula films)

    cheers

    Something like 4% duty then VAT on top of that. It’s the collection fee by the mail you want to bother about which can be an additional 1 to 2 times what the customs charge.

    Ordered from Amazon.com last night.

    Total cost $62.97.

    About £33.00 inc postage

    Let just hope customs dont spot it :cool:

    Cant wait to see this set

    And the Star Wars Box set and Lord Of The Ring ROTK Extended

    Going to be quite expensive if I have to pay import on all these box sets :(

    £32.95 +4% duty = £34.27 *17.5% VAT = £40.27 + post office charge (£4) = £44.27

    so a 25% uplift :(

    I dont want to turn this into a C&E thread, but if i could just ask this................if i get someone living in the states to buy this for me, take out any receipts etc, and send it me marked as a 'gift', do they still have to state the value, and is it still possible for customs to slap their charge on it?.

    cheers

    I know this has been mentioned before, but if there was some way to pre-pay import duty, I'd do it. But as it stands, I'm not d*cking around with the post and paying a rediculous surcharge. Heck, I don't even know where the nearest post office is to my home.

    Hey all,

    Just thought I would introduce myself and chime in on this thread.

    My name is Marc Daege, I manage The Laser's Edge and answer most of the email sent through the site. I can be reached directly at marc@lasersedge.com for any questions or concerns. We are new to AV Forums and Total DVD, but are excited to be here. We have been the "Official Software Sponsor" of Home Theater Forum in the US for the past 3 years. We also sponsor www.dvddrive-in.com as well as www.adultdvdtalk.com We have also been in business since 1986 and shipping worldwide since 1989.

    We realize the dilemas faced by UK customers with VAT and other assorted charges. Therefore we mark all Air Mail packages as "Magnetic Software" and declare them at $9.95 USD. This is standard operating procedure with us. For all countries! If you wish to have it sent by DHL, we can mark it at whatever price you like. You just need to tell us in the "Shipping Comments" section of the "Checkout" procedure. Also, we can leave out the invoice of all packages (DHL, GPM, AIR MAIL) upon request. Simply request this during the "Checkout" process in the "Shipping Comments" section.

    If you are ordering single disc sets, we offer GLOBAL PRIORITY MAIL for $5.00 per disc! These arrive in about 4-5 days and are an excellent bargain for those shoppers that only buy 1-2 discs at a time.

    We ship most new releases by the Wed prior to US Street date. Some titles much earlier. You receive an email notification of shipment. We NEVER charge you for an item until it is in stock and ready to ship! We charge flat rate on Air Mail ($3.00 per disc) and Global Priority Mail ($5.00 per disc), this allows you to place larger orders and have them shipped as they arrive, rather than building an order to ship "all together" and having to wait until they are all released or all in stock before they ship. You will get them shipped as we get them. And you are only charged for the discs that ship along with applicable shipping charges.

    DHL Shipping on this set is $26.00 and will arrive 2-3 days after it ships. If this method is chosen you will receive an email notification of shipment with tracking number.

    Combined price with shipping to the UK of the Monster Legacy Collection

    $90.89 (48.06 British Pounds) by DHL 2-3 day delivery
    $81.94 (43.32 British Pounds) by Air Mail (14-21 day delivery)
    DHL is cheaper than Global Priority Mail in shipments larger than 4 discs to the UK.

    Thanks for your time!

    It's gonna be a lean summer. :D
