    Looks like i might have to cancel then, dvdboxoffice are great if you get in fast and get from the first batch, if you dont it can take ages, i know videogameadvantage have them in stock for immediate dispatch but its gona cost around £40 instead of £32, will give dvdboxoffice til tomoz morning.

    thx for reply

    When you order from them, do you end up paying tax and import duty?

    Never paid tax or import duty from DVDBoxoffice that is the best thing about them. They ship to belgium, then the stuff is shipped from there, so it looks like it comes from with EU.

    No other place does that (that I have found).

    My Mariokart was shipped last thursday. Besides I am too hooked on FFXI I doubt I will even play it :p Nothing like a good MMORPG to suck the life out of you and make it very cheap month as you do not spend your money on anything else.

    Mine was sent last thursday so not too bad :)

    And i have never paid import duty with DVD box office in over 20 purchases. This is from games and DVDs, i am not sure if that is the case for Box Sets but i never order them from dvdboxoffice anyway.

    I think my copy of the Lion king has got lost sent 2 weeks this thursday still no sign (i usually receive in 6 days) this is the first time i have had anything go missing

    If your looking to order box sets with no customs and cheaper than dvdboxoffice try dvdsoon.com i got Alien Quadilody for £40 delivered and they mark all parcels down to avoid customs.

    I must Say i am usually impressed by DVD Box Office Service, its around 6 day turnaround time but over the last few orders its been terrible, (it could be royal mail i dont know) but

    I ordered Lion King Special Edtion Sent On The 13th Nov
    I Ordered Robin Hood Prince Of Thieves SE Sent On The 18th Nov
    And Ordered Mario Kart Double Dash Sent On The 20th Nov

    None of those have yet arrived

    i have stopped using them (dvd box office) because of the trouble they/royal mail/customs/robbing bastards . has caused me . i hope you have better luck . the trouble with the parcels (dvd,games,etc) is that its so plane to see whats in them (shape,size,weight) all you need is some light fingered git helping him/her self as they have no tracking number you don`t know when/where the game/dvd goes missing it could be in this country or canada . if i order something thats a diffarent shape/size , like a "wavebird" it come in a matter of days . makes me wonder ??? mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm .

    I understand what your saying but i have imported more dvds/games than i can remember and have always received them, but as i said this is the first time its ever taken more than 6 days, i have no idea why as its the same for all 3 items i ordered not just 1 :?
