>The price to be a member in Canada is rather absurd, particularly after exchange. I no longer remember the exact amount, but it ran somewhere around $75 or more. Too steep for me.<
The price is $28.95 USD for the US, and $39.95 USD for Canada. At today's exchange rate, that's $55.25 CAD. I wish it could be lower, but the Canadian Postal Service doesn't let us take advantage of the special magazine postage rate that the US Post Office offers.
>That, however, has never stopped me from ordering anything from the fan club. I'm not sure why, but I've never had a problem. Got most of the EU stuff through there. The fan club exclusive four, Wuher and even the stormtrooper 4 pack. Maybe they have a rule for foreigners ordering, I have no idea. I just hope I haven't jeopardized that ability by saying this. <
You're talking about the Official e-commerce site run by Wizards of the Coast - their license allows them to sell items to members and non-members alike. However, the Fan Club is now run by Paizo Publishing. Items on our site (starwars.paizo.com) are available to Fan Club Members only.
For those of you who have reservations about joining the Fan Club because of past experience, please be aware that it's under new management, and we've been working hard to make it the best it has ever been. We've brought back the membership kit for the first time in years; we brought back Bantha Tracks
quarterly for members only; we've increased the amount of collecting content in the magazine, including a regular "Toybox" column, where, this month, Hasbro's Andy Espenshade revealed the first photo of the Unleashed Boba Fett. We've been working hard to deliver more fan interactivity, which you'll read about soon right here at jedidefender.com. We hear every day that the Insider
is better than ever, and we're working to make it even better than that.
You can visit starwars.paizo.com for mroe details - including the first photo of the convention Fett figure.
