    Why buy it from Play at £44.99 when you can get it direct from hong kong legends for just £39.99 and get a free The Man, The Legend DVD (RRP £16.99) have a look Here Used HK legends site a few times and had no problems.
    If you still want it from Play you wont pay customs/VAT as Play pay all that on R2 dvds (the Parcel is stamped with a VAT payed)

    "If you still want it from Play you wont pay customs/VAT as Play pay all that on R2 dvds "

    really? why should a supplier from outside the EU claim that VAT has been paid?

    captaineyecatch is quite correct with his/her statement.

    If you order, from Play.com, anything R2 which is over £18 then you do not get any extra charges imposed. A sticker/stamp is on the package declaring VAT/duty has been paid.
