    Hi,

    I want to buy the R1 extended collectors edition of Two Towers, but man, the price differentials on Play and other sites (that list it !) Add to this the customs cost and it becomes very expensive.

    So where are you getting yours from and what about avoiding customs costs ?

    Thanks !
    Russ

    I'm not sure yet. I'll get mine(not giftset just normal 4 DVDs) from dvdsoon or maybe movietyme.
    but probably the US from movietyme. will make for some change in all those alliance atlantis discs i have.

    Those two shops should be fine for customs.

    Russ ... I ordered mine from amazon.ca for $40.66 incld postage which is a few pence over £18 so hopefully will not incur the wrath of HMC&E - I used a $5 voucher [which almost paid for postage] At the time it was a bit less than dvdsoon.com although they are shipping free at the moment & would be worth a look as they are very customs friendly ;)

    Dont fancy your chances with Amazon mate, even if it is a few pence over, i got FOTR from them last time using a voucher which bought it just under the £18 mark, but ive been had by customs using Amazon before

    Worked out at a shade over £38 from dvdsoon - You are talking about the Collector's Set with the Gollum statue and a fifth disc?

    The 'standard' extended version worked-out about £18 from them.

    paulboy: CANCEL Your order with amazon.ca, esp if you have selected the middle shipping option, the one delivered with DHL. I phoned DHL once and said I had an order for 18.25 at they said that they had to declare it:(

    Thanks everyone.
    Looks like DVD Soon is the best option this time.
    (yes it is the Region 1 Platinum Extended Edition Gift Set with Gollum 'figure')

    Paulboy, amazon.ca have one major disadvantage..which is one of their biggest advantages as well: DHL. they are just superb for service and delivery (at least their Luxembourgish office) I could decide at what time they would deliver and often that was just 10min after they picked up the parcel from the airport. BUT they are legally bound to declare anything over 18quid (22€) Now luxembourg is kinda easier there as our customs don't charge excessively and when the tax due is lower than 5 € they will not charge.
