    Josine (1 year ago) #19228224Er you can mail/contact them to cancel one, they do this with no problems (as long as the figure isn't yet released) xD

    Neru71 (1 year ago) #19228221Oh god, with just 1 click you just pre-order in Yorokonde? Because in my pre-orders section now it appears twice since I clicked two times because the page was not working fast enough. The problem is I cannot see any option to delete one of them Dx

    Josine (1 year ago) #19228096That's not really different from the rest of Europe; even Archonia, which is the most overpriced webshop on EU mainland, has him for 183 euros, which is about 160 pounds. I'm sorry but £190.94, which is roughly 221 euros, is laughable imo

    Archonia does not reside in the UK, compare the customs charges per country and see for yourself. UK customs charges are notorious. UK customs charges add charges upon the shipping as well.

    Edit: For further insight. Add the 20% customs charge to the price of the figure as well as the shipping, which is then dependent on the shipping method used. Then the minimum of 2.5% customs duty on top of it. And in my experience importing from Japan, the customs duty for figures and statues have varied between 5% and 10%, which they judge when they have the item in customs.


    From Nippon-Yasan I am paying £158 with EMS shipping, 20% on top of that is £31.6 and that's without the customs duty which is a minimum of 2.5%, so for arguments sake say they judge it for the minimum, then the 2.5% adds £3.95 which then would total £193.55. Choosing a different shipping method is an option, but it doesn't reduce it by more than £10 on average. And these calculations are if the customs duty is 'only' 2.5%.

    The £ got royally screwed when Brexit happened and has been recuperating slowly. But overall, customs charges have always been unpleasant here.
