Anybody in the UK bought these or anything for that matter from toytokyo? I was wondering what the shipping fees were and if they get hit by customs tax?
On a similar matter is there anywhere in the uk to get these cases from?
The customs fees will be an £8 charge (if it comes through Royal Mail) + 15% VAT on the goods and shipping combined
I haven't bought from them but the shipping price quoted was in the region of $35, so similar to what DSJ was saying as I remember it coming to about £2 per case with shipping (don't forget it was £1=$2 last year) and this was before customs charges and VAT - the customs charges and VAT didn't make it economical to buy them for me. The customs charge and VAT kick in at £18 so even with a good £/$ exchange rate the $37 price point means you will need the $ to do very badly to get cheap cases..........
I haven't found a retail source in the UK but I have picked up some on ebay (both UK and US - the US win was under £18 so didn't incur customs charges) and picked up about 30 cases on here from a UK collector who had a load spare after selling off his collection - so always worth putting a wants in the classifieds.
