    The customs limit is £18, not £17.

    Yes but it's just as safe under £18, seeing as £18 is the limit. Of course everyone knows it should be at least £100, how come people who go abroad don't have to stick to that £18 limit when returning goods?, hardly fair yet none the media or no-one ever highlights this problem. Despite the number of dvd and electronics importers increasing all the time.

    Come on mate there is a big difference. How often do people go abroad ? How often do we ship stuff from abroad ? Put your violin away :rolleyes:

    Thats the problem. We are evading vat and in some cases import tax. We should be grateful and be keeping our heads down. Not harping on about it.

    At todays exchange rate its £16.11 so I dont see how there would be any customs charge. Great spot by the way. I have bought it becuase its a great film but I really liked the look of the box (and the money clip :) )

    Seeing as we are buying from abroad we shouldn't be made to pay any of the UK's taxes, I would quite happily pay the taxes of the country where the product was bought from!. I bet other countries don't have such draconian import rules.

    I spread the word about the Amazon.ca deal last April for around £10 but never picked up one for myself as I had not long bought the R2 version, and I just could not bring myself to buy it again, even though it was so cheap. Well that was a year ago, so I can forget about my r2 version and sell it on :D

    Yep I ordered one this time for myself :thumbsup: Cheers OP :smashin:

    Wow I cant believe this is only £16. I would have paid that for the money clip ! Really nice set and I dont actually own this already.

    What are Amazon like for selling stuff out. Do they only sell what they have or do some times sell more stock than they can fulfill. I hope I dont get an email saying they are out of stock. I ordered yesterday......

    At £12 its an Obscene bargain ! Is yours like the picture ? I love stuff like this with the little collectables like the money clip and velvet style case interior.

    It winds me up that we dont see more of this stuff overhere, and when we do we get ripped off big time. You could see HMV trying to charge £50 for this on release....

    looks like it's now $44.99.

    Is this USD or CAD??

    Still either way it is over the customs limit!

    Damn it! really wanted it too.
